3 lines out of 7 backed up.
1 line for 15 items, empty. Customer with 25 items (I counted) can either wait behind 3 carts full of hundreds of dollars worth of crap, or go to the express line which is empty.
Is this really so hard for all you government employees to understand. You improvise, you switch gears, you think out of the box.
That's how life works ... except in a union shop or when you work for the government.
You're in the wrong line. You filled out the wrong form. You used red ink. It's not my job.
Well, why not just muscle your way to the front of whatever line you wanted, then?

As I understand it, the woman didn't refuse to ring you up, she merely pointed out, for future reference, that you were using the Express Line and had too many items.

And for some reason, instead of saying "thank you," and going on your way, you preferred to pick a fight. And having reduced the cashier to tears you continued to taunt and publicly humiliate her--to the major annoyance of the person in line behind you--who also didn't want to wait forever to go through.

I have no idea why anyone is standing up for you here, unless it stems from some belief in superiority over cashiers and a belief that it is OK to use them to work out aggressions. But the comments about "entitlement class" certainly provide a clue.

Where is it ever stated that the cashier was in tears?
Embellish much?

The customer is always right. He did not use profanity, he made no threats...I have worked as a cashier, I have worked in customer service; as an RD in a nursing home the number one complaints from residents is call light answer time and the food. I have been verbally "assaulted" (for lack of a better word) too many times to count. I smile, try to appease and then either go to my office to silently scream or find a coworker to state, dam that Mrs. Smith is such a beitch. No residents = no paycheck for Glitter.

Well, there is this:

More psychobabble from the closet lib. I was keeping my cool and wasn't the least bit angry until she threw a hissy fit. If a couple of sentences is going to throw someone into a hissyfit, she has no business being a cashier.

Again, I was waiting patiently in the correct line. The other line was mostly free, so I switched over. It's called seizing the opportunity. This is America. I know this is lost on you government employees, whose job is to always say no, but this country is built on taking that very kind of initiative.

Don't play dumb, Reader. You're doing what your buddy Che does in all of her posts...getting caught and trying to spin with all the skill of a six year old.

That's pretty much what urinates me off. I was a cashier for about 5 years. If a customer did to me what I did, I wouldn't even think twice about it, especially if the line is free.

If the line was backed up, or if someone brings hundreds of dollars worth of stuff through the line, different story. This was completely reasonable under the circumstances.

What was not reasonable was some spoiled brat throwing a hissy fit at someone twice her age. What she really deserved was to get bent over my knew and smacked on her ass a few times.

Good point. This may have been an intership that someone has to take as a prerequisite before entering the ODJFS training program.

She deserved it, too.

And to my credit, notice how I didn't use the N-word or any other epithet. A white girl would have gotten the same treatment from me for behaving that way.

There are a couple of points here. Their behavior may or may not be reasonable, but you don't throw gasoline on the fire. In my situation, I seized the opportunity of an empty line. Nothing wrong with that at all.

The WalMart on Hillard Rome road has a "cashier of the week" parking space in the front of their lot by the handicap spots. There is never anyone parked in them ,... I believe this because there is no such thing as a "cashier of the week" so I park in the spot everytime I go there, I figure hell I check myself out because they are slow so it makes me the "cashier of the week" when I shop there.

You have to remember that where Reader comes from, calling out one of her pets for bad behavior or lack of performance is racism. That's why President C-Student doesn't get called on anything. I think it's called the bigotry of low expectations or something like that.

She has been known to embellish. Doing the 'twist' is her speciality.

You do have to cater to customers. Unless you work for the government. Then you can treat them like crap and get a promotion or raise. Ever try to deal with IRS?

That's funny. Whenever I'm at the Reynoldsburg Walmart, It amazes me how slow and incompetent people are when using those machines. I mean, how much effort does it take to scan something and put it one the scale. Last week I was buying something and all the double digits were backing up the self-serve lines.

Me and their girls behind me were trying to figure out who was going to go first. I think they were afraid I was going to be another slow dufus like the people in front of us. I went there and was done in a couple of seconds. I looked back at the girls and smiled and they knew what I was smiling about (what idiots we had in front of us).

Don't let that bother you, I park in the "Customer's with Children" spot all the time. I do have stepchildren, abeit all grown. Usually the two dogs are in the car, unless it's summer. They count as kids. The sign does not say "Customer's who have children with them." Don't cheat on handicapped slots, though.

I MUCH prefer self-checkout.

Which circles us back to our remarks on Glitter's thread, "Things that I hate...."

He done 1 year in jail in 2012, but had the tear drop before that. That fool has got waaaay too many blood/tear drops. But these young kids believe he's a real bad azz but he's not! It's called 'false flag in' and he could lose his life behind it, it he wasn't rich and protected by private security. I think he made 80 or 90 million last year.
Thanks for the info. I figure most of the teardrop tats are 'make believe' to make them look tougher.
