You’ve Reached That Age And THAT Is The Worst Service You’ve Ever Received?

, , , , , | Right | November 24, 2020

At the end of every shift, we have to close our till and count the money to allow the next person to use the till. It takes all of ten minutes to do so.

It is midnight, and I am closing my till when an old man runs into the store and grabs something from the fridge and comes to the register where I am.

Me: “Hello, sir, I’m just finishing up closing my till and the next cashier will be with you in a few minutes.”

Customer: “This is the worst service I’ve ever received!”

I am in slight disbelief and assume he must be joking.

Me: “Oh, haha, funny.”

Customer: “No this is the worst service I’ve ever received. I demand to be helped right now!”

Me: “Well, I have no money in the register, so I can’t help you right away. You need to be patient.”

Customer: “This is an outrage! You should be fired.”

I start to ignore him and talk to the other cashier waiting to take the till over for the night shift. Another customer lines up behind the old man.

Customer: *To [Next Customer]* “She has to switch over her till.”

Next Customer: “Oh, that’s fine. I can wait for a bit.”

Customer: “Oh, that’s because you’re young and have a long time to live.”

The next customer gives me a confused look.

Customer: “She’s taking away my remaining time by making me wait around in a gas station.”

I finish up switching over and get away from the counter as quickly as possible.

Customer: *Shouting* “I hope someone teaches that girl some manners and to never treat a paying customer like I was treated! How dare she act like that?!”
