i got angry and made a thing.
As a cashier who deals with this shit every day, it’s nice to see that some people actually care about us.
Also: Put your money in their hand. Do not put your money on the belt. If you see them with their hand out and you put it on the belt you are a jerk. When I was a cashier I’d let it roll down into the machine.
Take the fucking food out your basket. The cashier did not put the food in your basket. They do not take the food out your cart. Taking it out of a cart on top of the belt is awkward from where they are standing and it wastes time.
If you have reusable bags make sure they are clean. If you know your elders re use plastic bags, get rid of the gross ones and replace them with new ones. I can tell you horror stories of when I would open up a bag and the funk, debris, and sometimes bugs that would fall out on me made me almost walk out.
White people: DO NOT PUT YOUR BABIES ON THE CONVEYER BELT. don’t know why you do this. The conveyer belt at check outs are gross. Meat bleeds on it. Veggies get dirt all over it. Cat litter and house hold chemicals get all over it on a regular basis. DO NOT PUT YOUR BABY ON THE BELT. It’s not cute.
OMG and please don’t complain about the belt being dirty when you damn well can see the customer before you had bleeding meat or I am so busy I cannot stop to clean the belt for you because you can’t place your food that is covered with plastic on it. That mark is probably water from the vegetables
I hate ppl tbfh
AND PLEASE the motherfuckers that complain about the prices need to cease and desist. Cashiers make MINIMUM FUCKING WAGE they aren’t involved in setting the prices for this shit. call corporate if you want to complain about prices so bad. and i used to HAAAAAATTTEE the people that pick up items NEXT TO sale items and argue me down at the register about the price. USE YOUR EYES,.
omg girl “this is suppose to be 1.99 and its 2.30 what is gong on etc” ma’am that isn’t the item on sale “CALL THE MANAGER” ok
And the manager would go check and now they lookin stupid. the people who used check and wait until they get to the register to fill out their info killed me.
why do they even use checks just get a fucking debit card you asshole!!!!!!
then you gotta wait for the manager to double check the price to tell them the price is wrong and have them shout at you why the prices are to high here
I KNOW I WORK HERE
i used to get one of those every day. it got to a point where i think they were trying some scam shit. some people would bring the WHOLE SIGN with them to the register and it would STILL be wrong as hell like did you just snatch this up ohmygosh grow up
There were people that scam the hell out of the store I worked at. Especially at the bakery department. They would order a full sheet cake with filling and a kit.
At the time a full sheet was like 38 dollars (now I think it’s 50) A kit (those toys on the top was like 8 dollars extra, and filling would add 15ish depending on how big the cake was. It was easy to get up to 60 or more dollars on a cake.
People would get these expensive cakes. Pay for them. Cut them up, eat them, then call in and say they didn’t like it or it wasn’t what they wanted.
Next thing you know they are at the service desk getting full refunds.
First of all if I forgot something. Fuck you. You better wait.
Found the asshole.
Working in retail has made me change my entire way of shopping, I stg
ALL OF THIS ALL OF THIS OMFG
also don’t ignore the cashier??? i know it sounds unbelievable to people who meet the minimum requirements for politeness, but so many people just don’t even bother ANSWERING THE CASHIER’S QUESTIONS. I am REQUIRED to ask if you have an airmiles card. I have been doing this for years, and when i don’t insist for an answer, that’s when the customer’s like YOU DIDN’T ASK ME FOR MY CARD I WANT MY POINT and who gets in trouble because you’re a gross asshole? that would be me.
oh and don’t even try to act like you’re not hearing me ask you if you need a plastic bag in order to avoid the fee, i’ll never give the plastic bag for free even if your transaction is over and you have to pay the 5 cents using your credit card or even a cheque. i don’t give a fuck, i don’t accomodate assholes.
OH OH AND ALSO WHEN YOU SEE THE CASHIER LOOK THROUGH A LIST OF CODES WHEN SCANNING YOUR OBSCURE VEGETABLE LIKE A PITAHAYA FOR EX DON’T FUCKING ACT ANNOYED AND TELL ME THE PRICE OF IT
1-I HATE YOU I’D LIKE TO SEE YOU LEARN HUNDREDS OF 4 DIGITS CODES SOME OF WHICH YOU USE MAYBE TWICE A YEAR
2- FUCK YOU WITH A PITAHAYA, SIR, I NEED THE CODE NOT THE PRICE. THE STICKERS WITH NUMBERS ON PRODUCE AREN’T THERE TO LOOK CUTE.
On that last line, I,d ask him to be fucked sideways with a cactus instead. And that’s when there IS a fucking code on the fruit and it actualkly works,. ALL OF FUCKING THIS ALL THE FUCKING TIME OH MY FUCKING GOD AND THE FUCKING GODS THAT ARE NOT MINE EITHER
FUCKING FUCKTARDS NEED TO BE HIGH FIVED WITH A CHAIR IN THE FACE! Seriously!
I swear to God, the more I’ve been working that fucking cashier job, the more the assholes just pisses me off, soooooo BAD.
My favorite was that asshole, in the fast line cash with more items than allowed, getting pissed off at the person behind him because he didn’t understood the concept of “that conveyor belt works with a fucking sensor, of course it will keep going you fucking asshole. If you keep pushing the items out of the way they will come back, strangely enough (not). And I blocked it, right in front of him, with the second divider TWICE. It was almost funny, really. And sad.
Or that lady having her out of bound delivery. I don’t understand why she comes to my place, there another store from the same chain like like a 5 minutes bus ride away rather than the 25 minutes one she does to get here. But oooooh if you don’t give it to her, does she gets pissed off.
And the list up here is just customer courtesy toward the cashier.
We’re paid minimum wage, basically breaking our back doing this shit. My lower back is in fucking pain from standing up in about 4 square feet of space 6.5 hours daily. ( Because of course 7 hours would involve something like an half hour lunch break oh my fucking god) and my right wrists is fucking busted from dragging those stupid beer cases and water bottle cases on a fucking daily basis ( don’t get me started on why fucking water bottles are the fucking worst thing ever ).
And you know what, to endure all that shit and the same fucking lame jokes that are more annoying than anything else, it’s minimum wage MINIMUM.
I work 30 hours a week + 10 to 15 hours of transportation weekly (on a good week because they been cutting hours ). I’D NEED A SECOND FUCKING JOB to be able to reach just above poverty line. How fucked up is that? And of course benefits in that kind of job are at a bare minimum. So I’m fucking screwed if ANYTHING goes wrong! I can,t even pay a dentist or an optometrist for my poor eyesight and it’s like fairly basic shit.
But… yeah, I’m lucky I got a job after 3 months looking, right? (Or so my parents says, no I’m not bitter at all, what do you think? It’s totally what I get for having studied in an art field… )
