Yesterday I went to buy some cola for myself on my way home. There was only one cashier and she was the cutest girl I have ever seen.
And she looked straight in to my eyes when I walked in, without breaking looking away.
So I couldn't buy just a bottle of cola (that'd be weird) so I took to loaves of bread (strike 1).
Then when I went to pay I think I became red and started to sweat a little (strike 2).
And when I pushed the card in and typed the code, I pulled the card out too fast - the thing didn't register it so I had to type it again (strike 3 - although she did giggle at it).
And then I said thank you at the end of it before going away (which people usually don't do here) (so strike 4 I think).
But at least I walked away with bread and cola. Dunno if I should go back to that store. Kind of scared to see her again.

When the cashier guy asked me "Do you want a plastic bag?" and I answered with smile in a loud voice "Yeah, thanks mom". Awkward...6

Very funny and brings back memories of my bungling such episode at that age... the power of a girl to get you to buy things you didn't plan on getting. you should tell the store manager she needs a promotion.
A long time ago (in a place far far away) there was a cute girl that I noticed and when I walked down her isle, I could barely think and funciton. I'd play games to get down her isle. One day I worked up the nerve to buy her a rose and ask her out. I tried going down her line and she said... sorry... line closed! I was bummed. Went back next time and gave her the rose... which still had thorns on it and she threw it aside and said thanks, but I have a boyfriend... that was really sweet though.
I gave up after that and talked to the other cute girl who I should have asked out as well, but she was quite a bit older... probably 20 years. I remember both their names to this day... Stephanie and Karen.
You have to get past those nerves somehow, communicate, flirt and have fun, be normal, ask questions. that is the only way it work... natures love chemicals are cruel to guys 'cause we lose the girl when we have strong feelings!
