Unfiltered Story #93338

(I’m putting my items through the self-checkout and get an alert because I’m purchasing alcohol. Once I’ve finished I see a worker come over and expect her to verify my age, etc. However see proceeds to pick up my bag, turn it upside down and dump everything on the scale. I am using a bag for life from another store.)

Worker: “We just need to put your bag through.”

(She tries to scan the bag which is clearly from another store (this store uses a blue bag while mine is white and green, the text and overall aesthetic is completely different as well). As expected it doesn’t pick it up.)

Me: “It’s from [other store]. It won’t work.”

Worker: *ignoring me* “Why isn’t it scanning?”

(She tries over and over, refusing to listen to me until she screams out in frustration and rips the bag in half.)

Worker: “Now look what you did! You’re going to have to get another now!”

(She tries to get one of the store’s bags when a manager intercepts her. The manager apologises to me and offers me a free replacement (despite it not being from my store). She also approves my alcohol and lets me go. I ask for my torn bag back as well before I leave. The worker is screaming so loudly at the manager by this point that half the checkout has stopped moving to watch the spectacle. I leave and a week later decide to shop at [other store]. While I’m there I decide to get my torn bag replaced (there’s a free exchange offer for damaged bags for life.)

Me: “Could I replace this please?”

Other Worker: “Sure…” *while grabbing another bag* “It looks like someone tried to rip it open.”

Me: “Someone did.”

Other Worker: “Your kids?”

Me: “Ugh, no. Someone at [Store] thought it was one of theres’ and—”

Other Worker: “Was it a woman? Short, with curly black hair?”

(I nod.)

Other Worker: “She worked here last Christmas.”

(She hands me my new bag and start my shopping. As I’m leaving I hear people at the services counter talking about the woman and laughing hysterically. Looks like she’s gotten herself a reputation.)
