Eh. What can I say. I had a transfer of location, and now I work at a best buy in Brampton, and I have to say -- some of the customers I met are really rude... @[email protected]; Like this happened last week -- I was working at my usual cashier, when I met a lady who wanted to purchase a dvd. So, I cashed it up for her, but, I made a slight mistake, so I had to over-ride a price; but this took 4 minutes, because the cash register was pretty unresponsive at the time, and during those five minutes, the lady SCREAMS at me: "THIS IS TAKING TOO LONG, MAN!" while I say: "I apologize, this thing is pretty slow right now", but, I guess she was in a hurry or something. Anyway, when the cash register is working again, I asked her "Do you want a bag?" and she said: "Yes", so then I tell her: "It'll cost 5 cents extra" [because there's a law now that we have to charge 5 cents for a bag] And once again, the lady screams at me saying: "5 CENTS?! YOU PEOPLE JUST WANT MONEY! DO YOU THINK I JUST GET IT OFF THE STREET?!" ...or something like that, and I say: "Sorry miss, its the law you see..." In fact, don't even get me started at the people who scream day in and day out about paying 5 cents for a bag. I can't change the rules, I follow them. So as she tries to get a nickel, she gives me attitude again and yelling: "THIS IS THE LAST TIME I BUY FROM THIS HORRENDOUS PLACE."

What a day.

Well anyway, SOME of the customers I met are like this; not all.

    People are people everywhere. I swear I see people like that every time I walk into the local Target. Which is quite often.

    I'm sorry you have to put up with that. :(

    Wow. I know how it is. I been working retail for about13 years. I am a cashier in a local grocery store. Luckily I been getting a lot of awesome customers. But there are a few that rub me in the wrong way, but the awesome ones override the bad ones.

    Don't worry about that lady. She probably had a very bad day and want to take it all at you.

    Yeeeeeeah, retail is terrible. I would absolutely love my job if I never had to deal with irate customers, and the thought makes my stomach churn every morning I have to work. Some people in this world are just NOT NICE.

    There was a couple that just blatantly bad mouthed me, the other technicians, our pharmacy, and even our pharmacist right in front of the pharmacy... where our other customers could clearly hear. Saying things like, "This place has gone down hill friendlier term than he used," "They look like they're just playing on the computers," and [insert generic racial slur about my Indian pharmacist]. As soon as they left I called management. They're not allowed back at our location. :]
