u want milk in bag
whenever I'm in a store (shopping, not working) and I take a product off the shelf, I always bring the next one forward out of habit and I get made fun of for it. idgi because like why not, it takes literally 1 second. does anyone else do this?

i don’t, but that’s an awesome thing to do because you’re helping us maintain orderly shelves!! (although maybe my shelf stocking followers can clarify whether this hinders their work in any way?)

Any advice for retail + PMS? Not the pain aspect, I take ibuprofen, but the whole "i can't have an emotional breakdown at this customer for being an asshole" type thing. Thankfully I didn't get anyone too bad today, but Im just worried that I'm gonna end up flipping out on a customer and get in trouble :x

I can totally relate… I always had trouble with PMS when I was a cashier and that was when I was the snappiest… I’m lucky no one complained, or if they did I didn’t face the consequences… I’m the wrong person to ask about anger management issues lol but I did make a post that might help you!

yesterday, saw a customer barge to the front of the very long slow-moving queue (like, 20 people at least) in CEX because she wanted to see a phone behind the counter. The cashier didn't really know what to say to get her to go away that wasn't rude, as it was clear she wasn't gonna leave, and she only left when another customer started yelling at both of them. Why, customers

What do you think of costumers who think you should know every price of the products because you are a cashier

when the want to make a return past the 90 day policy. I've had people bring receipts from November of LAST YEAR and they get mad that they don't get the full price of the product.

"IT WAS IN NOVEMBER!!!" 

"but sir this is from 1987" 

"IT’S STILL NOVEMBER"

when they ask for no bag, but only AFTER you've bagged all their dumb shit

ive been meaning to make work-related comics forever, so enjoy some choice movie title bastardizations.

(these all actually, seriously, happened, with no humor or awareness on the part of the customer at the time as far as I could tell. so, yes, someone actually asked for a ticket to “Detergent” with a straight face.)

This is something that happens surprisingly often. I clock in at 10:00. I usually open my register by 10:03. A accumulate a line. An angry customer starts complaining about how slow I am and how he has literally waited in my line for over 15 minutes and how he wants to complain to my manager. I look at the time and it reads 10:08

In this case tho you should actually say that you started 10 minutes ago and see how they react!!
