Let's not get into the sentencing in England, it is stupid.

Funniest experience and most awkward, would be when this girl was hitting on me when SHOPPING WITH HER PARENTS. They were finding clothes for their father/husband and she was being all like, "I would love to see you in that." When her parents were turned away. Was so awkward and all my co-workers were laughing so much, was a difficult situation to handle, BUT I DID!

She gave me her number after all that, but didn't call/text her, she was creepy! XD

Why did that have to be in North Carolina... My girlfriend lives there and works in a shop... Ty guys :P

I have so many, but the funniest has to be this regular customer that came in and shes like, 40+. She comes up to me and goes, your looking pretty build and then starts hitting on me, I haven't heard the end of it. I had no idea what to say lol.

I had a woman in her forties hit on me once. She came in ten minutes before we closed with a friend; she was so drunk I almost didn't serve her (except I did because her friend was sober and driving). She kept looking me up and down and saying to her friend, "look at him!" and then this happened:

"What time do you finish tonight, love?"
"In ten minutes."
"You wanna come for a drink after?"
"Uh... I think I'll be right, thanks."
"You sure? We'll shout you!"
"Nah I'm good thanks, I've been here all day, I'm pretty dead" <---- this was a lie. I'd started at 4:30 that day and it was like 9pm

She was pretty gross too, and made no effort to hide it. She had a gut that was hanging out the bottom of her shirt.

I dont even want to talk about the people that have hit on me oh god.

Though theres those rare occasions that they are attractive!

Had an awkward moment where this older lady was trying on this top thing that opens up down the middle and flashed me, she was in lace. Was awkward for me at least.. Oh this happened 3 days ago as well.

The past two nights, I've had the most annoying thing happen. The entire last half hour of the closing shift you don't see one customer. Then one shows up 30 seconds before you're about to close the doors. It's as if they time it perfectly just to piss you off. Then they loiter around the store, making no great haste to get what they want because after all, the people behind the counter have no interest in going home at any stage tonight.

Then... just as that jackass decides what they want and comes to the counter, you grabbing hopefully for your keys... some other jerk who was running late comes in. So the store that's meant to close at 8 doesn't end up closing til 8:05 and I don't end up getting home until at least 8:15 when I could have been home at 8:05.

I think I shifted perspective a lot in that post which is a grammatical no-no, but you get my drift

Ugh I hate the last minute shoppers as well. I don't know why, but the last few are always the ones with all the reduced and damaged products and stuff that takes longest to process. It's like they know that we can't go home until they leave.

So last night I knocked three bottles of Vodka Cruisers from a 6-high stack of cartons straight to the floor. Right at closing time. Of the twelve bottles, there were only five survivors .

So just over 40% remained after your foolish foolishness. That's still a pass at University!

Yeah it is lol. 40% is the minimum pass mark for University. 50-60% is a 2:2. 60-70 is a 2:1. 70% upwards is a 1:1.

On Monday I got another first at work: my first blackout! It's been three years and I've been waiting so patiently but it finally happened! The power went off at 4pm and we got to close the doors, and it didn't come back on til 5, and we were messing with the computers trying to get them to work again til about 5:30, so we got to be closed throughout the entire busy period! We did record low figures, but at least me and the guy I was working with got to sit and bludge for an hour and a half XD

My god Andy you got to bludge during the most busy time. lucky you! Yesterday I closed the shop to go surfing over lunch time if that can compare to your bludging? >.<

In my defense the surf was FANTASTIC!

Has anyone else had a similar experience of closing because of either no power or because you wanted to be somewhere else?

The closest I've got to stopping during work is when it was one of the busiest Christmas shopping days of the year, and every register in the store broke down for 20 minutes, the line got so long, it was doing a whole lap of the store.

They are grades you come out with.
40% = 3rd (D)
50% = 2:2 (C)
60% = 2:1 (B)
70%+ = 1st (A)

So they are the grades you get. Think of it like the normal grades.

I did that on a smaller scale the other night xD.

We have a stack of boxes of Vodka Cruisers. Just in case these are an Australian-only thing, this is what they are:



They come in 4-packs and we have a bunch of the 4-packs that won't yet fit in the fridge sitting on top of the cases. I was moving the boxes around to get to a flavour that we'd run out of in the fridge and I moved the loose 4-packs to the stack of beer that was next to them. Somehow, and I don't know how, I knocked over two of the 4-packs, sending them tumbling to the floor. The group of boys who were in the store erupted in raucous laughter, which was not helped when 20 seconds later, a third 4-pack spontaneously decided it'd be funny to jump to its own untimely demise.

Of the twelve bottles, there were just five survivors . So much glass and sickly-sweet liquid to clean!

I hate dropping things. Its embarassing.

Does anyone else get moaned at for using their phone. For me I used to all the time. But when you have a gf that lived in another country. I took any chance I could get to talk to her really. Guess I kinda did overstep how much I was using my phone and cut back in the end.

Owning the store makes using your phone a lot easier Especially when youre the boss. I do usually have my phone on silent though.

Naww there was people in there watching Andy? That'd suck.

Also I hate it when crazy old ladies come in and talk to you about nothing that is relevant and say they dont know you when youve lived in the same town as them for 19 years (Your whole life.) And lived 4 houses away from them for about 13 of those years. ridiculos! Do you guys have to deal with crazy old ladies?

OMFG LMAO. I just realised I told that Cruiser story twice... on the same page. I guess that shows just how interesting my work is if I'm recycling stories already without even knowing it. Bahahahahahaha.

Oh hey, it's my life in a club.

I actually am starting to enjoy my job, being a checkout chick and all. Pretty much all of the people I work with are nice, and 95% of the customers are nice to me. That being said, I have no clue what they say behind my back (you know the saying, 'there's always one person who is hated and everyone talks about them behind their back. Never had one? Then it's you.')

But I've been wearing a trainee badge for about a month now, just so customers go easy on me. Heheh.

And I missed the conversation about robberies, which really sucks D: .
And because if someone asked me to open the till I'd have to admit I didn't know how to unless they actually made a purchase.

And asdfghjkl the flybuys promotions. I'll admit, they're not that bad, but the training was kinda weird.

I think I work at a pretty cool place.

Aaaaaaa YAY welcome Impo!

It doesn't matter if you missed the conversation about robberies, it's the most freeform club you'll ever join so if you wanna talk about something we've already talked about just go ahead and bring it back XD.

I'd wear the Trainee badge for as long as you're allowed to, because once you get a badge with your actual name on it, some people start actually calling you by your name and it's really unnerving. I spent a long time thinking "how the hell did that guy know my--ohhh" lol.

You guys had to undergo training for your Flybuys stuff? We just had to read a booklet they sent around and then sign saying you'd read it lol. I didn't even bother reading it... I just skimmed. Now when customers ask me questions about flybuys I answer using my common sense... and then if I don't actually know I just make stuff up
