    Not Handing Over Justice

    | OR, USA | At The Checkout, Bad Behavior

    (Many cashiers have a pet peeve about customers placing money on the counter when we have our hand ready to take it. Usually this doesn’t bother me much, but one night I am closing my store and it is nearing the end of my shift…)

    Me: “Do you have your [Store] card or phone number ma’am?”

    Customer: “Yes, I have my card somewhere…”

    Me: *reaches hand out to accept her card as she pulls it out of her wallet*

    Customer: *throws her card on the belt next to my hand, making it hard for me to pick up*

    Me: “Okay, your total comes to $7.59. Will you be paying cash or card this evening?”

    Customer: “I think I have some cash on me.”

    Me: *once again reaches hand out to accept the cash she has found*

    Customer: *throws cash on counter*

    Me: “All righty, 41 cents is your change. Would you like your receipt?”

    Customer: “Please…” *reaches out hand to take her receipt*

    Me: *puts receipt on the counter right next to her hand* “Have a nice night!”

    Bet Your Bottle Dollar I Won’t Come Back

    | CA, USA | Employees, Money

    (A major grocery chain’s store near my house has recently changed owners. A customer notices the store’s ads say that Gatorade is $0.67, so she gets a bottle and takes it to the cash register.)

    Customer: “Why is this $1.72? The ad says it’s $0.67.”

    Cashier: “The bottle costs $1.05.”

    (Between this and the fact that they didn’t have enough cashiers and I had to stand in line for a long time, I don’t think I’m going back there anytime soon.)

    That Description Is Not Kosher

    | Scotts Valley, CA, USA | Employees, Food & Drink, Holidays, Ignoring/Inattentive, Religion

    (It is mid December and Hanukkah is approaching.)

    Me: “Excuse me, do you carry Hanukkah candles?”

    Employee: “Yeah, they’re down here with all this weird stuff.”

    (She leads me down an aisle and points out the candles. The ‘weird stuff’ turned out to be Gefilte fish, matzo, matzo meal, latke mix, etc…)

    Me: “Ma’am, that weird stuff is what we Jewish people call food. “

    He Swore It Was On Aisle Three

    | Cordova, TN, USA | Bad Behavior, Employees, Language & Words

    (I am looking for something in the organic section. I am in the store at around 12:15 am. I walk up to a night stocker.)

    Me: “Can you tell me where to find organic coconut oil?”

    Him: “That mother-f***** is going to be on aisle three.”

    (I walked away dumbfounded, headed to aisle three, and finally found it on aisle five.)

    Don’t Fall Behind On The Schedule

    | Cincinnati, OH, USA | Bosses & Owners, Coworkers, Ignoring/Inattentive

    (I work in a meat department at a big name store. None of the people who work at night are trained to use the saws, so they start having one of the trained people come in at night. We never really know which one, so we have a tendency to ask another night clerk in the department.)

    Me: *stocking the cases*

    Coworker: “Hey, who’s working with us tonight?”

    Me: “[Department Head].”

    Coworker: “D*** it! I hate working with him!”!

    Me: “Um…”

    Coworker: “It’s just so annoying!”

    Me: “…he’s right behind you.”

    Department Head: *stocking another shelf nearby, and turns to say* “That was actually pretty funny!”
