Begins the conversation screaming & doesn't quit until transferred to a supervisor because frankly, you don't earn enough to endure that kind of attitude.

Always goes to the back and bottom of stock for what they think is the freshest gear.
Never shops for themselves, but always talking about how it's for someone else. Always tells you this seven times a minute and uses it as a magic talisman against actually buying anything.
"I don't want this one…" *boing* "I don't want that one…" *boing* Usually seen habiting the soft fruit section.
Always manages to find someone they know and have intense conversation with them in the busiest thoroughfare in the store. Never listens to what the other person says, but concentrates solely on talking fifteen to the dozen.
Reaches over and tries to pull the receipt out of the till. If it's not torn off, it damages it, for those not having dealt with the older sorts of tills.
Gets some items, gets the cashier started in the till, and then wanders off to do their main shop.
The Comparison Shopper
Keeps telling you that the competition is cheaper.
These types usually collect Hot Wheels or Star Wars stuff. They come in just as the store opens and will down every toy on display looking for that one they don't have in their collection. After they're done doing that they'll annoy employees into bringing cases out of the stock room for them to pick through. They frequently smell bad too.
