  • Episode Description
  • Mama is getting annoyed with Naomi at Food Circus and tells all her customers to go to a different checker. Mr. Palmer, the manager, gets to talking with Mama, who gives him advice, and he ends up offering her a job. She will be the Customer Consultant and give the customers advice and is put right next to the express lane. Naomi isn't pleased with any of this. Things get even worse when Mr. Palmer tells Naomi to train Mama to be a checker and gives Mama Naomi's check stand. Mama does okay on the test run, but when the customers come, Mama has trouble. When some products don't scan, she has trouble entering them by hand. And with one particular can of chili, Mama can't find the price. By the time she does find it, there is a long line of customers. Mama has even more trouble and ends up quitting. After she does so, everything is well again in the Harper house.moreless
