Most of these "kids" have been friends for years. They've grown up together, went to school together, and they like each other. A boy having a conversation with a female friend is not the same as a boy trying to "get a piece."
Anyone who has worked in the service industry, who has stood on their feet for eight hours a day, taking uncalled for abuse with a smile plastered on their face, will understand the occasional need to vent. I will agree it's not appropriate to do so at work, but we are only human. Shocking, I know.
One more thing--the phrase "the customer is always right" is not a law. It was coined by Harry Gordon Selfridge, the founder of Selfridge’s department store in London in 1909 as an advertising campaign. That's London, ENGLAND, by the way.
Yes, you are entitled to good service. But by the same token, employees are entitled to be treated like human beings instead of serfs.
In my view it's the manger's fault!! They are rude as hell. I think the next time one of them gets rude with me I'm going to Jap slap the hell right out of em!!

If they are turning their wages in to unemployment it is legal, however if they are working for cash and not turning their wages in when reporting to unemployment then it is illegal and will result in paying it back and possibly fines, imprisonment as well as being kicked off umemployment now and in the future.
One can recieve partial unemployment if they are working and had their hours reduced due to work shortage. They can work and draw unemployment to make up for the lost wages.

Yes, you are entitled to good service. But by the same token, employees are entitled to be treated like human beings instead of serfs.
I was agreeing with you until you threw in that one word 'entitled'. Fact is, we aren't entitled to be treated in any manner. In order to get respect we must first be willing to give it. It appears from the posts in this thread that there aren't many people willing to do that. Who says they have to say 'hi' or 'thank you'? Sure, IGA, in most cases trains their employees to be courteous to patrons. However, we, as a society, have become far to narcissistic and expect these people to treat us as if we are the only people in the store. Instead of getting on here and degrading these young people for being there working, why not embrace the fact that they have jobs, go to school, and try to be something more than a deadbeat check drawer. They are young, were you so much different when you were that age? Hell no!!! One poster even admitted yelling to get an employees attention. Did it occur to them that the person may have actually been busy at that moment? Get over yourself people, those kids don't owe you anything, they are there to ring up your shit and get you out the door, not stand there and tun their gums all day. Trust me, there is nothing more annoying than standing there having to wait for someone to check out while they are trying to have a conversation with the clerk. Get your shit and go the hell on. Whoever told you that the world had to treat you with respect has done you a great disservice. Lay off the working kids, they could be out getting high, but they choose to hold a job.

Last two times in the IGA at WalMart the workers were rude. Apparently NO communication skills, NO manners. Last time in the Dobson IGA it was dirty. We don't go to either now, only to Kroger in London. It is clean and the people are helpful and have manners. Why are so many Clay countians rude?
Also, take a look at the filth behind the stores.
agree
