MAKE IT A THING

I noticed customers having this tendency as soon as I started working in the produce department of my store. A good part of my job in produce is making sure everything stays adequately stocked. So as I’m doing that customers are always just reaching into the boxes of whatever I have at the time, wanting the “freshest” salad or what have you. Or worse, they demand I get it straight from the back.
Here’s the thing: my department runs out of product really fast, and we get new deliveries daily. So at worst most of the things in my department have only been out for a day, and of course we try to clean out damaged or rotting food! Everything’s pretty fresh.
Don’t try explaining that to a customer though, they just look at you funny.


i worked in seafood, and i understood even on my first day the importance of getting FRESH seafood considering how horrible that stuff got really fast, but what pissed me off were customers who would come in 20 minutes after opening and my case display is just finished with the day’s fish and all the signs and prices in place  and they DEMAND that i get them the “fresh stuff” from the back bc “this stuff is old” um…no.
yesterday’s fish is packaged up on trays and for sale in the self-service cooler. this is done so that everything has a date on it, so i can throw it away after three days if no one buys it. the stuff IN THE CASE is all fresh and new, until the end of the day, when i take it all out, package it and put it in the self service cooler.
SEE HOW THIS WORKS?
yes, the stuff in the back is “fresh” but is often the SAME CASE of fish i got yesterday’s fish from. that case too is dated at rotated, but if you want “fresh fish” (in a landlocked state, mind you) you will suffer with the shit i got in on ice, OUT OF MY CASE. if i could bypass having to set up that damn case everyday and just sell stuff straight out of the back room i would, i would gladly. but since i spent an hour putting all this fish in here on new ice and fresh greens and cleaned signs, you are going to get THIS FISH.
mind you, i put out-dates in the cooler too, in a seperate storage spot bc throwing it straight into the garbage just ASKS for it to stink everything up horribly. in the cooler it stays fresh/not rotting. you want what’s in the back? i dont think you really do….

[Image Description: Background is several triangles in a circle like a pie alternating from true red, scarlet and black. A robin is sitting on his perch looking to the right.Top Text: “YOUR TOTAL IS $80.75.”Bottom Text: “CUSTOMER HANDS ME EIGHT DOLLARS.”]
So I work at a clothing store, and this woman comes up to the counter with a huge stack of clothes. I ring everything up, and tell her the total is $80.75. She hands me eight dollars.
I mean, I can understand if she didn’t hear me correctly, but did you really think that huge armful of clothes would only be eight dollars?

i had a woman say that i “told” her it was a lower total (whether i misread it or she misheard me) and it was the LAW that she get it for the “quoted price”….like, she argued that if i literally said the wrong amount she would get that lesser amount regardless of what the register wrung up. I told her that was NOT how it worked, that was NOT a law, and furthermore, i didnt tell her the wrong price, i told her exactly what my screen said and she heard something completely different apparently. i told her she either paid the full amount or i would cancel her order and take the next person in line. she screamed she wanted to see the manager. i pointed at my nametag, showing her i WAS the manager, and she threw her shopping basket at me calling me a “fucking con-artist”
ME? I am the one who is a fucking con-artist? really?

Yet another Orange Hardware Robin!
I’m a head cashier at my store, but am also trained in paint (among other departments). Our paint department usually leaves at 9, but we’re open until 10. It never fails that when I have to help a customer in paint right before closing, they have no idea what they need!
One night I had a woman who was looking at regular paint, then I realized that she needed the waterproofing stuff for cinder block. I’ve had college students who think they can paint over wood paneling without using a primer. Tonight I had a lady who was trying to decide between two colors of countertop paint. I had to explain to her three times that her best bet was to start with the lighter color, and if it wasn’t what she wanted we can darken it. AFTER the lights went out because we were freakin’ CLOSED she picked the lighter color, I mixed it and she paid and left. 
But seriously.. if you’re not going to stay up all night painting you really could wait until the next day to get your paint! Or just do it earlier in the evening so that you’re not keeping us there past closing time.

This happens every night I close.
Since I’m a sales associate, I’m pretty much on the floor most of the night. After I finish returns or stock, I end up doing recovery which is basically fixing up the store.
I discover pet peeves every time I do this. It’s like THE PAINT DOESN’T GO THERE or THAT COLOR DOESN’T GO THERE ARE YOU BLIND WHAT or HOW DO YOU FUCK UP RIBBON AND UNRAVEL IT THAT BADLY and it even gets to the point of WHY DO YOU LEAVE YOUR DAMN CARTS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STORE??!
It’s kinda funny, actually, when it’s not extremely annoying. xD

WHO LEAVES THEIR COFFEE CUPS HERE?
who spilled this and walked away without telling anyone?
why is this item reshelves in the wrong place THREE FUCKING FEET from where they got it?
where are all the hangers? tons of shirts but not a spare hanger in sight, DID SOMEONE STEAL ALL OUR HANGERS?
oh look, another half-eaten and stashed something
why did you have to un fold EVERY DAMN RUG? they are the SAME SIZE! unfolding ONE would have done the trick to give you an idea if it was what you were looking for!
a USED deodorant stick? really? you came in, snatched one, used it, hid it, and left?
YOU PEOPLE MAKE ME SICK!

Don’t you hate those people who come in expecting you to somehow be able to read their mind?
I had this woman call the store looking for a Sterilite storage container. The conversation went as follows:
“Hello, thanks for calling Target. Can I help you find something?”
“Yes, I’m looking for a Sterilite storange bin.”
There was an awkward pause as I waited for her to continue, but she doesn’t.
“… Okay, what kind were you looking for?”
“There’s one on your website that said to call your store to check the price.”
“Um, okay, but which one were you looking for? Do you have the DCPI?”
“The what? Oh, no, I don’t.”
“No problem. Do you have a specific size you want?”
“Um, I think I want a 34 gallon one. The one with latches on the side.”
“Okay, any preference of color?”
“The one on your website is gray.”
“Okay, I’ll go check for you now.”
After being stopped by another guest and helping them out, I found the one she was looking for on sale. So I hopped back on the phone, really happy I had found it for her.
“Hello, you were looking for the storage bin? Good news, we do have them and they’re on sale for $13.”
“How many do you have?”
“Oh, I couldn’t tell you off the top of my head. How many do you need, exactly? Want me to go and check?”
“No, that’s okay, I don’t think I want it. Thanks for checking.” 
I sat there dumbfounded for a second before finishing with:
“Do you want me to—?”
And then I heard the dial tone. 
I’d be happy to help you find what you’re looking for, but you need to actually TELL me what you’re looking for.
I think the real kicker for me was when she suddenly changed her mind on it. Just… WOW.
