The worker managed to keep calm and refused to service the lady and asked the customer behind her, who was filming the entire episode, to move to another cash register.
‘This is ridiculous! There’s no law that says I have to wear a face mask,’ the woman shouts.
‘Actually there is!’ the cashier responds to her comment as she proceeds to walk out of the shop.
