Regroup When You Can’t Recoup

, , , , , | Right | November 8, 2018

(The store I work at has a “super double coupon week” every so often. However, there is a limit of twenty coupons per store card per day.)

Me: “Find everything okay?”

Customer: “Oh, yes.”

(I scan her store card and she tells me how she wishes she had more time to shop, but she has to pick up her grandkids from school. I see her with a big stack of coupons.)

Me: “Are you aware there is a twenty-coupon limit?”

Customer: “There is?”

Me: “Yes.”

Customer: “I didn’t know that. I never coupon, and I don’t have time to go through and pick out what I want.”

Me: “I can get a manager over to void the whole transaction.”

Customer: “Yes.”

(I call the manager on duty over.)

Manager: “What’s the issue?”

Customer: “I didn’t know there was a twenty-coupon limit. I spent over two hours shopping and I need to get my grandkids!”

Me: “She wants the whole transaction voided.”

(The manager voided the transaction, and we gave her overflowing cart to a bagger to put back. The manager ran to catch the woman and give her the coupons back, but she didn’t want any of them back.)

 

Snaking Out Of That Argument

(My husband and I are in a heated argument.)

Me: *at a volume of 11* “You are so inconsiderate. Acknowledge my feelings. You’re acting like an a**hole.”

Husband: “You know, one time I removed a pair of mating snakes from under the deck because I knew it would freak you out. That was pretty considerate of me.”

Me: “Really? Well, that was nice of you. Poor snakes, breaking up their sexy party.”

(We both laughed and that was that.)

Freeze, Turn Around, And Go Back

(I’ve worked at a convenience store for almost three months, and a common problem we’ve been having is the customers not closing the sliding door to the ice-cream display freezer when they’ve chosen their treat. Because of this, I have to close it quite often, which is annoying to have to constantly do. Today, I close the door while a customer in their mid-30’s is browsing the popsicle freezer next to me.)

Customer: “Oh, that must be such a hassle, having to close that after some careless idiot!”

Me: “It’s really no problem, though I wish people would think about what they’re doing a bit more often.”

Customer: “Well, I hope it gets better!”

Me: “Thank you!”

(The customer then left the freezer door open and walked away.)

Unfiltered Story #124702

, , | Unfiltered | November 2, 2018

(I’m bagging when a father and daughter come up to the register with 20 2-liter bottles of soda in their cart. The cashier rings them all up and I put them back in the cart.)

Father: “This should last us a week.”

Daughter: “Just a week?”

(They notice that I’m stacking them up in a pyramid shape in the cart. However, I cannot complete the pyramid as I am one short.)

Father: “Darn it! Now I want to go get one more.”

Daughter: “No!”

Father: “But it’s gonna bother me! If only it was 11 on sale and not 10.”

Daughter: “No.”

(As they leave, I notice them stop and father took a picture of the bottle pyramid. I have never had someone take a picture of a bagging job before.)

Senior’s Motto Expects Grins

, , , , , | Right | October 29, 2018

(I work at the checkout at a grocery store that, on Thursdays, offers a 5% discount to seniors. Naturally, we get a lot of seniors on Thursdays. Near the end of my shift, an elderly gentleman comes to my lane.)

Me: “Hello, do you have a [Store Card] today?”

Customer: ‘Yes, it’s [telephone number].’

Me: ‘Okay. Did you find everything okay today?”

Customer: “Yes, I did.”

Me: :Great. Are you having a good day so far?”

Customer: “Well, you know how people say T-G-I-F?”

Me: “Yeah…”

Customer: “Well I say, S-H-I-T. So Happy It’s Thursday.”

(I could only fake laugh and quickly get him out of there, making sure I give him his senior discount.)
