I was on register today....uggg

Round 1
This lady told me very very fast that she had 3 waters 5 teas and 2 milks.

I repeated it back just to make sure


SC-Duh can't you hear. (looking at her husband) They say all "store" employees are Idiots.
SCH-Of course they are. She didn't even hear you.
Me-sorry I was just repeating it to make sure. I wanted to make sure you were charged right.

SC-yea ok.


Round 2

About 30 mins later.

I am known as the coupon and ad match queen. I have customer come up to me all the tme.

Well this SC was tring to use coupons for items he didnt have.(note: he had about 10 items and I would say 20 coupons)

Me-Sir you didnt get these items. So I cant use the coupons.

SC-Well right here they are.

Me-Sir this is for "brand name" You have our brand. Plus you have way to many coupons for the items.

SC-Come on I always do this.

Me-I am sorry I won't do it

SC-You are just a fat idiot. I bet you know nothing.

Me-Would you like to pay??

SC-No cancel my order you idiot.

Me- okie dokie will do.


Round 3

This guy came up w/ 3 cart loads...no big deal.

I start ringing and the person over at the desk isnt busy and sees that I have abig order. She runs and gets me a cart. She also helps bag.

SC-(looking at me) You must be lazy since you need help.

Me-no sir I am not she just offered to help.

Sc-uh huh

Me-Sir you total is ......

SC-ok I have debit

Me-sorry sir your card was declined.

SC- No way do it again.

Me-sir it didnt work again.

SC-What are you an idiot(must be the word of thae day). I don't think you know what you are doin

Me-Sir all I do is push a button.

SC-I went to the bank and just put some large amount of money in the bank.

Me-Well it might not credit to the account to monday.

SC-you are such an idiot. Im sure you are messing it up .

Me-sir there is nothing I can do.

SCpicks up a big bag of rice and throws it. It didnt hit me but rice went every where.

SC-Now all you idiots can clean it up. I have a good job and make more money than everyone here. You are all stupid idiots.

Customer in line-You know sir when my 2 year old throws a fit I make him clean up his own mess.

SC-I am out of here. Noone treats me bad. I am not an idiot like evryone here.

Oh that was fun to clean up.


On a side note the new soda guy is very handsome. Made my day worth it.

There were an awful lot of idiots in your store today, but you weren't one of them. I'm sorry you had to deal with those rude, obnoxious, stuck-up jackasses. :hug:

Kudos to the one decent customer who called out the last jerk on his tantrum. :cool:

SCH-Of course they are. She didn't even hear you.

No, we have to repeat orders back because we get so many idiot customers in here.

SC-You are just a fat idiot. I bet you know nothing.

And that, sir, is your cue to leave. Please exit the premises before I call security and have you escorted out. Thank you, have a nice day!

Yes, such a good job and so much money that you had to go to the bank before you got here to put money in your account...and for some "mysterious" reason, the computer says that your bank is declining this transaction.

What a great job you must have! What a huge bank account you must have! Why, most people who don't have such great jobs or as much money as you don't usually get declined here, so you must be truly special. Clearly it's a conspiracy.

For the last one I bet the idiot (ie SC) if he is not lying did not put money in his account, he placed a check in it. In America I share the same bank as my mother, I even am set up as a joint-member on most of her accounts. And still the last time I deposited a check of her's to my account it took one full business day to post to my account.

People just don't seem to understand that the only way a deposit shows up in your account right away is if it's cash. Otherwise, it's going to take at least a day (or more). Worked in banking for almost 5 years as a teller and had to explain that many times.

I've had SCs come through with water/soda/other heavy items under the cart and get snippy if I ask them to please remove one so I can scan it. I'm not supposed to leave the register during a transaction to do this (unless it's clear the customer can't do it themselves), and the scanner gun can't read the barcode through the cart. If a customer has multiples of the same item (to make things easier for all involved, I will scan one however many # of times) I always repeat the total # of items back before I start scanning to make sure it's correct.

The other day I got grumped at by an old fart who waited until he had unloaded all his bottles of soda for me to see that most of them were the same (and then bitched me out for 'making' him unload them...I asked at the beginning how many of each you had!).

Me-Sir this is for "brand name" You have our brand. Plus you have way to many coupons for the items.

SC-Come on I always do this.

Was that an admission of guilt?

I always make it a point to a. place one of my multiples FIRST and also tell them firs thing how many I have and b. If I'm buying something that's similar but not the same, i.e. flavored seltzer, but different flavors therefore differend SKUs, I'll tell them that up front too! It's really not that difficult, and if you shop on a regular basis, you really should know to do that as it helps the cashier get you rung up quicker, hence you get out quicker.

Dreamstalker

One of the other cashiers believed an SC when he placed one bottle of seltzer on the belt and said "I have 10 more, they're all the same".

Care to guess what happened? Yup, half of them were all different flavors. All the same price, but each with their own barcode, so for inventory purposes each one must be scanned individually. That went over well.

If he had a large amount of money on him, why didn't he just use some of that to buy his shit instead of dumping some of it in the bank? Man, what a jerkface.

Jester

I encounter the multiple thing a lot, since I purchase a whole hell of a lot of Gatorade. (I go through about 2-3 quarts a DAY at work. This is what happens when you give up soda....) And on more than one occasion, when I have had multiple flavors, the cashier, when alerted to this, simply told me not to worry about it, and rang them all in the same way, as one flavor. Of course, I've had it where they do, in fact, want each one separate, so I never assume.

If he had a large amount of money on him, why didn't he just use some of that to buy his shit instead of dumping some of it in the bank?

Because he's a fucking lying jerkface.

You're not the idiot, those SC's were. To the fast talking SC... I mean really, you can't expect to understand somebody if they talk too fast for one and they'll bitch either way because "you didn't get it right!!11!!" or some other bullshit. The second one, well if the card declined it's because of (say it with me now) NON-SUFFICIENT FUNDS...meaning you don't have enough money on the card or none at all to pay for your stuff! It's not the clerks' fault your dumb ass is broke! Throwing a bag of rice and treating people "beneath you" and calling them idiots just makes you a jackass...plain and simple.

"I have a good job and make more money than anyone here." Oh, my GOD!:eek:

Ten bucks says this guy is going to get laid off from his job due to the economy and starts pissing and moaning because he has to apply for a job at your store and it isn't hiring.

Customers like this like to brag about how much better their jobs are than ours. Watch them come crying for scraps once they're unemployed. Boo-freaking HOO!:cry:

...Or he already has been ^_^ If being on this board has taught me anything -- and we all know learnin' is bad for ya! -- it's that the people who make claims like this tend to be liars, thieves, and ....wait for it...that's right, IDIOTS! :eek:

SCpicks up a big bag of rice and throws it. It didnt hit me but rice went every where.

I'd like to see that asshatcockwallet banned myself.

I'm glad it didn't hit you but... it doesn't mean he wasn't trying. And those things can be heavy so... it could do some damage.

Plus technically you could get him with destruction of property since it was intentional.



As for the "declined" issue... that *does* happen where I work. Sometimes it's the customer, the system, or us... so we'll try the card again. but if it comes up a second (or third) time declined, there ain't fuck we can do.

About half the time when we get a non-EBT card declined it's because either the reader or the card's strip is funky (I've seen a few cards with grooves scraped into the magstrip!). If it won't swipe after the plastic bag trick or three tries, we aren't allowed to key it in manually. We can hold the order until they come back with another card, but no manually-keyed transactions.

I suspect that's because people could/had come in with just the number/info on a bit of paper and there's no way to know if they're actually authorized.

We are allowed to key in cards. A lot of times with the EBT cards they don't scan after awhile so we have to key them in.

my local grocery store has that same rule for credit / debit / ebt. perhaps for the same reason

SC-Well right here they are.

Funny to me this is...hmmm? Reading the SC in Yoda's voice I am...yes?
