Having been a cashier for a couple of years, the line of people and what they bought was basically a blur and I could have cared less what they purchased, but on the other end of things sometimes some cashiers get really weird, or personal, or you just don't want them to know what personal products you are buying. I bought some sexy lingerie once and the only person to ring up was a guy and he said to me, "oh I wonder who these are for, wink, wink." It was so inapproriate. I also bought condoms once for my boyfriend and the cashier paused on just that item and looked up at me, and then rang it up. I was like, yeah, now you know we have safe sex, what the hell is wrong with that? So when purchasing certain more prsonal items do you go to a same sex cashier or the self checkout, or you don't care.

Doesn't bother me either way, really. I don't offend easily, and if a cashier is ballsy enough to make a comment on what I'm buying, they should be able to handle whatever response I give. For example, someone may say, "That's sexy looking underwear." I'll reply, "Yeah, I'm sure my dog will love it. It's just his size."
I'm at best terribly sarcastic; poke yourself into my life, don't be surprised to get nipped. I'm paid to be a people person, but when I'm off the clock... well, let's say I'm good at turning it into the anti-social network.0
