Did you find everything OK?

Cashiers always ask "Did you find everything you were looking for?" or something like that.
Are they just curious?
If I wanted to be a jerk, I'd like to ask "Why do you ask? What if I didn't?"
I did a lot of shopping today. I went to several stores, Walgreens, TJ Maxx, JCPenny, you name it.
At every check-out, someone asked me that.
On every occasion, I said, quite sincerely, "No..." and went on the explain what I failed to find.
On every occasion, the cashier had absolutely no follow up, no help to offer, no suggestions.
They just shrug and say "Oh..."
Except at Walgreens. The person at the register with an assistant manager tag on showed no signs of noticing that I had answered his question.

another pet peev got his nourishment today.

Wow,funny you would write this! I was in Super Saver (as usual) looking for Pyramid Apricot Ale and didn't see it. I went to check out, the cashier asked if I found everything... I said "no", and she called someone over - within 5 minutes, I had my ale! Wild!
