dalesys, I don't think we need any werewolves spreading contagion, thank you
Werewolves are part dog*, so they can't get or spread the contagion.

On the other hand, vampires are blood sucking creatures, just like sucky customers, that will suck the life blood out of you, transmitting the contagion just like a mosquito. Holy water (aka hand sanitizer) works well against vampires.

*Dogs are descended from wolves.

Can be easily solved if corporate would issue guns with silver bullets to the front line employees. Only problem I see is that everytime a customer snarls they get shoot with the employee using "I thought they were a werewolf." as a defense.
Just pulling the gun out should work, LOL.

The only problem I have with the plexiglass sheets is that it's VERY difficult to hear what customers are saying to me now. On a couple of occasions, both I and the customer have leaned down to speak through the hole that is situated over the card reader ... thus making the plexiglass somewhat less safe . I thought it was just me (age and all that) but many cashiers AND customers have said the same thing.

I'm hearing that little speaker vents are supposed to be put in. Hope so.

Yeah, but weres are part *human*, too, so I'm concerned they may at least be carriers.

There's been complaints from customers that the deli is taking the extra cleaning steps too far and "creating a hostile shopping experience" for the Grocery Store's customer base. Never knew sanitizing the scales and counter were grounds for a hostile shopping experience.

There's been a few of those customers, but it's more like "I don't like you cleaning the slicers with pre-approved cleaning materials instead of just plain water and now I'm going to file a complaint about it" type of customers.

I've been hearing a few coworkers complaining about lines to enter stores. First, you are shopping at the wrong time. I've never waited in line to get in the store yet, go in the morning. If you go when everyone else goes, you have to wait, don't act like it's stupid. Second, your biggest complaint about a pandemic that's killing thousands is standing outside a store for 10 minutes? Please have some perspective.

Careful about posing such questions, Pixel. Too many will take that as a challenge,

Had an old guy the other day ask why toilet paper is in the ad if we don't have any the shelf. <---My coworkers and I.

Well, that's ironic. I've read a story about a grocery store employee at [Competitor] being sent home because said employee was wearing a mask and it was "making shoppers uncomfortable."
