Got a couple from last night. Why must Thursday always be the night of suck?
They don't make them anymore
Background: We used to sell Coke and Diet Coke in 1L cold bottle varieties which we were expected to fill whenever one of us filled drinks in the fridges in the front end. They were discontinued some time ago.
One-sided convo guy made a reappearance last night (one-sided convo guy comes in, talks to himself LOUDLY while wandering around the store but is completely normal to the checkout staff). anyway, this is a short lowdown.
Me: Your wonderful checkout peon
OSCG: One-sided Convo Guy.
OSCG: Excuse meh...where do you keep the cold 1L Cokes?
lemme check. (Is about to pick up phone when I spot C walking past) Hey C, do we have anymore of the 1L cokes? (they were only kept cold in the fridge, they weren't on the shelves)
C: Nope we don't sell them anymore.
OSCG (to C): How come?
C: They stopped making them.
From what I heard later from C, OSCG followed him all the way down to the backdock area asking why they didn't make them anymore...
Can't remember the entire convo, but little background: one of the registers doesn't have a chute to do safe drops/pickups (clearing your register of most $50's and $20's) so they usually have to come to the next checkout to shove their safe drop up the chute.
One of our transfers asked me why the chute didn't have it. I was in the middle of serving a customer. Turned to explain to him why (that particular checkout used to only be used for processing home deliveries and PPU's, so it didn't need a safe drop as often) and I get yelled at for not focusing on the customer. I'd just finished the transaction, they just had to get their receipt and go. Thankfully they didn't lodge a complaint but
Question is though: was I sucky? It was a work-related question, not me gossiping.
