Asking to use my employee discount.
Not putting things back where they belong.
Trying to get special treatment by mentioning that you "spend lots of money here."
Getting mad when it's too late for you to return something.
Or getting mad when you can't return something because you don't have the receipt.
Putting your cash or credit card on the counter instead of handing it to me directly.
Complaining about prices.
Doing the whole "Does that mean it's free?" joke when the product won't scan.
Continuing to browse after closing time.
Trying to return something that was clearly used or worn for awhile.
Asking to speak to a manager because you don't believe what I'm telling you.
Getting mad because your coupon expired or the special promotion ended.
Responding to "Hi, how are you?" with "I'm just browsing" — or worse, just ignoring me altogether.
Complaining that we don't price match.
Whining about having to wait for assistance when the store is busy.
