Because I work at a grocery store.
Customer starts putting her items on the belt and says “First things first…”
and my brain finishes for her “I’m a realist”. and then Fancy by Iggy Azalea is stuck in my head for the rest of the transaction. Cool.
Yesterday I got a chance to talk to the oldest cashier in our store.
"Do you like coming here to work?"
"Girly, I’ve been here for 22 years, what do you think."
I then said that since she had said she lived alone, I thought it would be nice to get out and talk to people, because that’s how I feel sometimes about coming in to work. And she agreed with me.
"The lady who drives me here..our work schedules overlap so that I need to work 8 hour shifts so she can drive me here and back to my house…I really don’t think she likes driving me here, but I can’t drive myself. If I didn’t have to wait for her all the time I’d work 4 hour shifts and I’d like it a lot better then."
It’s extremely impolite to be chatting on your phone while being rung up.
I can’t imagine the amount of frustration I get when someone tosses their shit at me and is just laughing away at their friends’ jokes- honestly it makes me feel like a little servant.
So please , be considerate. Your phone call can wait 5 minutes, ass hole.
Oh my gosh people, be nice to your waiter/waitress, it’s not their fault that your food is cold or if it’s under cooked. Be nice to the cashiers who are still training and can’t ring up your items as quickly as you want. If a stranger smiles and says hello to you, smile and say hello back! It’s just common courtesy, I don’t understand why people have to be so rude.
