Should Apply Some Patience Before Applying For A Job

, , , , , | Right | April 29, 2020

I work self-checkout and hear many times through the day how “unethical” it is and how I’m “supporting the loss of jobs.” I normally just bow my head and apologize but keep doing my job.

A gentleman approaches and tells me not-too-kindly:

Customer: “You! Ring me up!”

I point to the open self-checkouts.

Me: “Sir, the self-checkouts are open for you to use.”

Customer: “You need more g**d*** registers open!”

Me: “We have as many as we can, sir; we are understaffed today.”

Customer: “That is not good enough!”

Me: “We are hiring, sir. That’s the only way to remedy the situation.”

Customer: “Using the self-checks means I am doing your job for you!”

Me: “Well, then fill out an application and you can get paid for it.”

My managers know I’m not normally this much of a smarta**, so I doubt they believed him when he went to them. Made my day.
