30 Things Your Cashier Hates

Retail sucks. Here are some reasons why.

Posted on

12. I am legally required to ID all people in a group purchasing age restricted items. The last thing I need is a gaggle of 20 year olds sassing me because one person has their ID.

14. Bulk items can be expensive. Don’t be surprised when your Jelly Bellys or Pine Nuts are crazy expensive. We can’t put those back, so when you change your mind we have to throw them away.

23. Hang up your phone. It makes it hard to tell you the total, ask you any questions, etc. But please, when the transaction is over, hang up and examine your receipt and tell me everything that is wrong. Next time, hang up.

25. If a store closes at 11. Don’t be surprised that there are few cashiers at 10:55 to ring you up. If you plan on doing a week worth of shopping, don’t do it five minutes before close.

28. If you get food from the deli, pay for it first. Don’t eat it then tell the cashier it was gross and you don’t want to pay for it. Generally you can tell if it is gross with the first couple bites.

30. If the closed sign is up, it generally means we are closed. Just because I’m still finishing up a transaction doesn’t mean you can assume I am open and then give me a nasty look because I inform you that it does indeed mean closed.
