I've being stalking your page for hours, I'm just sat gasping at half of the things in delight. It's like you've gotten all of my work 'feels' and crammed them into one page!!
it’s amazing how much agony and grief we’ve managed to cram into one blog
I work as a courtesy clerk at a Ralph's and this couple wanted to buy meat. They complained to the cashier why it wasn't $3.99 as advertised since the one they grabbed was $5. I offered to grab the right one and I asked the butcher which one was $3.99 and he showed me. When I returned the couple asked what the difference was and I said that I wasn't sure but we were just having a sale. The wife looked at the cashier and snapped "I don't believe her. I think she's wrong." Then proceeded to glare.
I work at Tim Hortons, and people seem to think it's okay to talk on the phone while ordering all the time, especially at drive-thru! It makes it very hard for us to get your order right if you're trying to hold up a conversation while you order. One woman wanted some confusing bagel combination, it got made wrong,she brought it back, and my boss kindly told her that maybe if she hadn't been on her phone the whole time, we would have been able to figure out what she wanted.
your boss is awesome and deserves a pat on the back seriously

I work at Home Depot. This was during the beginning of October, when we were just starting to put up the seasonal items (Halloween/Christmas displays). I was working self checkout, and some guy stormed up to me with a cart and commanded me to scan all his items. At self checkout. Which is always my favorite. WHAT DOES THE SELF PART MEAN I DON’T GET IT. But anyway, while I’m completing his demands, he’s sitting there bitching at me the whole time about how we “put out the Christmas stuff too early”, and we’re “turning Christmas into a holiday about profit and merchandising rather than keeping it about Jesus”, and I”m sitting there politely nodding the whole time he’s saying these things, apologizing, etc etc., and then, I get to the bottom of the cart….
AND HE HAS LIKE SIX BOXES OF CHRISTMAS LIGHTS. SITTING THERE. IN HIS CART.
Sure that this must be a mistake, I ask him if these are his. He gives me a “are you an idiot?” look, says “Well, they’re in my cart, aren’t they?” all sassy like, and then continues on his rant, while I just sit there looking at him.
I just. I can’t.
I got a job at Kmart about a month ago, and my 3rd day there this lady comes to my register and she's being super friendly, and then she has an item with no tag or anything, so I tell her I need to get a price check. Well, of course we're insanely busy. So I call over to my manager who's working at the customer service desk, and she says hold on, and it was literally 30 seconds. The lady throws all of her bags down into her cart, yells at me, and then runs out of the store. uhm????????
in customer speak, ‘please wait’ translates to ‘i will piss on everything you love’
My store has seasonal gift card promotions and I HAVE to offer it to qualifying customers because our system tracks my percentage of people who get the card and I get in trouble if it's low. I can't tell you how many times people have been disgustingly rude to me for offering it to them. Like geez I'm getting paid pennies to be nice to you please calm down. Also I love when I read people their total and they get mad at me because it's high. I just met you I didn't make you buy all this stuff!
hey i just met you
and this is crazy
but here’s your total
and please don’t kill me

As a former walmart employee i think self check out is the raddest thing ever cause i can use my cashier skill still and be fast and like show off infront of confused old ladies that cant figure out the self check out kiosk.
the only thing i check out is myself so that job is right up my alley
*places each crumpled up and possibly soggy dollar bill individually on the conveyor belt*
*crumples up your items before bagging them*
I love your blog! I work at Home Depot so this is one of the best things ever. It's great to know the cashiers at my store aren't alone in their struggle!!
thank you! We are a mass network of misery
