DJ Douche bag: Always come in blaring music from their phone or a Bluetooth speaker. If they are told they have to turn it off you get angered reactions or they walk 10 feet out of your sight and turn it right back up. Often the music is of swear riddled rap or hip-hop music and not appropriate for a public setting such as a Library...

MC Douche bag/American idol reject: Similar to DJ Douche bag but Loudly and badly singing or "Rapping" random music. You often get the same reactions as DJ Douche bag

Waste All, Want All: Customer who, when faced with having more groceries than they can afford, elicit to take off the $30.00 in sliced/weighed deli meats and/or seafood in their order (which then have to be tossed out) rather than boxed or canned items that can actually be put on the shelf and re-sold. Same customer then later complains about steadily-rising prices.

Mister/Miss lookie-loo

Hovers around the checkout but isn't ready yet but you still have to stand there forever waiting for them to decide what they want. You could be getting work done but you know the minute you walk away they will be ready.

How much iz dis?

Brings a bunch of stuff up to the register but wants you to check the price first. Bonus points if your store has a price checker TEN feet away from the checkout


Different form of price checking. Stands half the length of the store away and yells at you while pointing to something you can't see while yelling 'how much is this?' Bonus points if the floor worker is only a few feet away

Invisible workers

Customer who walks the full length of the store to ask for something to be unlocked or to use the bathroom when there are SIX people working five feet away from where they were.

Front checkout obsessed

The ones who think the ONLY place to check out on the whole store is at the front and then complains about the long lines when just five seconds ago they were standing at an alternate check out.

The high and mighty: Believes that cashiers are lazy low intelligent grunts with no ambition. Will tell you how if you were only smarter/better/more ambitious/less lazy you would get a better job or go to school. (But clearly you send al your spare time eating, sleeping, and playing those video games). Occasionally brags about what a well paid job they have or the degrees they’ve got.

Yet can’t for the life of them figure out this technology of using the card reader.

5+ bonus points if they can’t figure out what ‘tap’. Is.
5+ more bonus points if they either can’t figure out where to slide their chip in or put it in backwards.
10+ bonus points if they need you to press the buttons for them. (Seriously, it’s just like a traffic light. Green means it’s OKAY to go. Yellow is for generally bad choices. Red is for no. Not fucking rocket science.)
15+ bonus points if they don’t know what their pin is (and of course it’s your fault it’s not working as they run through every possible combination of random numbers they can think of.)/they tell you the pin out loud for everyone to hear.

Usually middle age/late middle age. Can be identified by how their nose is too high in the air to look you in the eye.

Oh and if the transaction fails from insufficient funds it’s either your fault or the machine’s obviously broken.

Giving a fu(k doesnít really go with my outfit.

As the sh!t deepens I smile and buy higher heels.
Your a$s must be jealous of the sh!t that comes out of your mouth.

Rereading this thread, I'm suddenly feeling like my own grocery store habit might be deemed to suck. I can get a little OCD about how I want groceries organized to make the step of putting stuff away at home easier. At "bag it yourself" places, DH handles bagging, and thinks my preferences make sense, so that's OK.

At places where the cashier bags, I'll group items I want bagged together with the desired bag leading that group (e.g. insulated bag, one bagload of frozen/refrigerated, normal bag, one bagload room-temp food, normal bag, one bagload nonfood). Excessively PITA?

Or they swear at you and tell you to "stop pressing decline!"

So long as you communicate your requirements clearly at the start, rather than after they bagged everything "wrong", I'd say you should be okay. Different people have different needs for different reasons.
