Im a cashier at jewel, a grocery store, always have been, was hired as one.
Boy can i tell you stories.
I start hating anyone that uses a credit,or a debit card, but especially a check.
It gets to the point when using one of these forms for as less as 2 dollars is ridiculous.
"oh i forgot to bring my money"
Or, using checks is very convenient,
problems with people that use checks,
half of them need the amount to be rounded to the nearest tenth of a dollar. Its easier to balance a checkbook. The worst thing our store does, is give money over on a check, so we get people that want up to 50 over on a check. If you want money, shouldn't you just cash all of your paycheck? And, i know majority of people cant do simple arithmetic. So they might ask for 50 or something less over the total, so i'll just punch it in, but they are hoping for me to add the amount for them and tell them what they should write down in their check book, but ill just act preoccupied in organizing my coupons.
About 80% of price lookups are due to customer thinking that the price is different. About 20% or less, is computer error, or management hasn't updated the price. Customers are wrong numerous times, either they saw another tag for a different product, didn't read the tag which states the size etc.. 50% will say no i dont want it, or the other will say, no let me go back and see what it says. When they come back wrong, they either will make an excuse, or say i was right. Management will give it to them for a price if they are tired about the complaining.
I asked this one lady for her address to be on the check, but shes like i had my bank remove it for privacy. I dont understand how writing a check is private when numerous hands are in contact with your check, and your account number is listed on the bottom and top. Boy, did i want to say something to her.
Another was, this customer giving me a can saying she doesn't want it because theres a dent in it, she wasn't old, mid 30s. I said the soup is still good. She says, you can get (SP) bochulism. I said just cook it hot enough.-- Aslong as the dent doesn't have an opening exposed to air, it is fine, anyone else do bodywork?
Anyone care about food being wasted. What pissing me off is at the checkout. Some individuals dont want something so they decide to stick it where the magazines are or someplace else. The problem is, no one will see it, and the worse thing is when the product is suppose to be refridgerated, by the time an employee gets it, to put it back on the shelf, its already warm. I guess giving it to a cashier is to hard. A gallon of milk at room temp was a big waste, but same is frozen pizzas, etc...
There are a lot of idiots, same as the people that drive on the road, i just ignore all of them and dont say a thing. My words are hi and thankyou, or i look confused when they try to say a funny joke. So the next time you go shopping, dont tailgate an idiot shopper.
