My Sacrifice For Your Happiness

I'm your somewhat friendly neighborhood cashier.

I can quickly scan your groceries and help you pay for them.

In exchange for my back and shoulders.

I'll pretend to listen to the stories that you tell me.

In exchange for my attention.

I'll scan the food you'll put on your table tonight.

In exchange for all the times I won't have dinner with my children.

I'll scan the birthday gifts you'll be giving.

In exchange for all the special occasions I'll miss.

I'll scan your last minute Christmas presents.

In exchange for time I could've spent with my family.

I'll let you yell at me.

In exchange for my mental health.

I'll scan everything you put on the belt.

In exchange for my life.
