I wish I knew what drove generally normal, sane people into thinking that acting like a spoilt brat would get them anywhere in a store. I’ve seriously had stuff like: 1. The lady who dumps her stuff all over the counter, says she’s ready, wanders off while I’m ringing her up, and then slowly sashays (I kid you not, it was like a slo-mo version of the catwalk models do) back up to the register, sniffs and tells me to hurry up because she’s in a hurry. Wut? 2. People who come into the store intending to buy something… but purposefully leave their wallets/purses in the store. Wut? 3. Let their children grab shit and toss it everywhere. Lady, do you want me to come to your house and knock over your cheap living room furniture out the window? No? Stop letting your kids do the same thing in the school aisle. 4. STOP TELLING ME TO BE CHEERFUL OH MY GOD FOR ALL YOU KNOW MY DOG JUST DIED. No, seriously, and it’s 200x worse during the holidays because my feet hurt, people just literally hurl merchandise all over the place, and no one wants to discipline little Timmy and tell him to stop screaming in the store. It’s like no one realises that while most people might deal, on average, with one cashier a day, a cashier (or waiter, or clerk, etc) deals with potentially hundreds of customers every day. It’s tiring.
