Just how far out of the loop ARE you??

Default Just how far out of the loop ARE you??

I work as a cashier in a grocery store. For a few weeks now we've had gloves; a few days ago we had large sheets of plexiglass put up at each register. (Masks are reportedly next.)

Today I had an elderly couple come through with their groceries. The woman tapped the plexiglass sheet and asked, "So when are these coming down?"



My first reaction was to say "Never" but I wasn't 100% sure of that (turns out that's exactly right).

I swear, we need a separate subgroup for "Stupid Customers" -- people who aren't sucky but terminally brain-dead.

Imagine how nice it would be if it was there for no now.

Customers who spray when they talk - shielded.

Customers who sneeze and cough in your direction - shielded.

Customers who think they have a right to reach into your work area - shielded.

Heaven.

Kitty Corporate just announced they are installing those in all their stores ASAP.



Where were these when I ran register years ago? Would've stopped a lot of these monkeyshines customers pull.


We'll see how effective they are . . .

Probably a good idea in general. In my retail days, I was always catching some bug from the customers.

We're supposed to be getting the plexiglass, too. Hopefully it helps.

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.
