37 Things Only Grocery Store Employees Will Understand
No, this register is not open.
Karen is your public enemy #1.
Closely followed by the crazy regulars.
You know there's nothing better than defeating a customer...
...except the end of your shift...
...and the sweet freedom of regular-people clothes.
People seem to forget that you're a person too.
And they never consider the fact that you like to be addressed like one.
You would think that people would learn that there are better ways.
Or at least give you the courtesy of simple pleasantries.
You're very familiar with the different kinds of shoppers.
And you're no stranger to their evil ways.
But you know how to put them in their place.
And really couldn't care less when they throw temper tantrums.
In fact, you're physically incapable of caring any less.
You dread having to open a register.
You have very specific guidelines for people you will tolerate.
You can't tolerate people who don't understand how buying produce works.
Or people who treat you like you're a leper.
Or people who don't understand the difference between "slide" and "insert."
But on the bright side, working the register has basically taught you a new language.
You know that altogether, being a cashier is rough.
Especially when people don't understand that it's possible to just be nice.
The only solace is in closing your register, but someone always manages to ruin the sweet relief.
And causes you to have a meltdown.
Customers don't seem to have any concept of time.
And you're definitely not going to help them out.
They also don't seem to understand organization.
Seriously, do they think this is a junkyard?
And it's mind boggling to you that they think you actually care, when you really just hate everyone and everything.
But then you get paid and everything is sunshine and rainbows again.
