The Screamer: 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.

Mr./Ms. Attitude: Thinks everything should go her/his way or else it's YOUR fault.

The Teacher: Believes s/he can teach you how to do something better even though s/he knows nothing about the product in the first place.

The badge flasher - Cop who shows you his badge when he's off duty and thinks they don't have to pay when they can try and threaten to arrest you.
I have had this happen on more than one occasion:

SC: "I'll have a margarita."
ME: "May I see your ID please sire?
SC: "Are you serious? "Man, I'm a cop!"
ME: "Then you should KNOW I have to do this!"

And yes, I DO say that last line when cops question me when I am doing something that the law requires me to do.

If you look 30 or under, I am required by STATE LAW to ask for your ID. If you don't have it, you aren't getting any alcoholic drinks. And I don't care if you are a cop, with the liquor board, in city government, someone famous, a parent with kids (you don't have to be 21 to have kids, people!), or that your parents who are with you will "vouch" for you. The STATE LAW does not allow me to take those things into consideration, and frankly, your inconvenience/surprise is not a higher priority to me than my job/a fine/a court date.

Any questions?

That's exactly right, Jester. As far as I'm concerned, there is NO-ONE I like enough to want to fork over a 5 grand fine for... give me your ID, or no booze. Simple as that.

SC: How much can I get cash-back? (When paying by debit card)
ME: I'm sorry, we don't do cash-back, it doesn't work.
SC: But my daughter works here!
ME: That's nice, but we still don't do cash-back.

Puhleese!!!

Over where I work it's more like this:

SC: I'd like cashback, please.
Me: How much?
SC: 100 please.
Me: Sorry, we only go up to 50.
SC: I got it last week!
Me: Sorry, but our tills only allow up to 50.
SC: Fine, 50 then. *sulks*

We have cashpoints outside, that is the really dumb thing about this. How hard is it to walk outside? I shall name this person the "Cashback Moron" and add them to the list.

maybe it's me, but i fail to see the relationship between a cash back option and the daughter's place of employment.

is she some kind of wizard who waves a magic wand for mommy/daddy, causing the cash back option to appear out of nothingness?

I just deal with another one.

The Change Granny. - Why do old ladies always carry insane amounts of change and insist on giving ME exact change when I know that the only way she could have accumulated it all was by paying with notes elsewhere.
My grandmother just fobbed an insane amount of change off on me; her change purse was too heavy Oh well. At least I can use it and my mom can use the quarters for laundry and the like.

Maybe he thinks there is!

I still don't know who his daughter is and quite frankly I don't care. She's probably just as whiny.
