14. I was a cashier many moons ago...
way before debit cards. In fact, the registers I used didn't even tell you the change! I worked at a supermarket. My pet peeves included things like Hunt's tomato sauce being on sale 8 for $1 and people getting 8 cans of Del Monte and saying "I like del Monte better. Can I get these for the sale price?" Or people that would yell and get pissed off at ME because we were out of something or didn't have something in the flyer. Like I could do something about that. And of course people who just seemed to wait until they were as pissed off as possible before going to shop for groceries.
