Learn Dutch: A conversation with the cashier Posted by on Apr 15, 2010 in Dutch Language

A lot of things in our world get replaced by machines. When you go to the cinema, buy tickets online or in some countries even when you go to a supermarket, you don’t have to talk to anyone. You just click and type in what you want. But since the cashier is (for now) not completely extinct, hereby some useful words and short sentences to make yourself clear to that thing called the Dutch cashier.
