>>11574819get some ambition man, you literally olo
>>11574408maybe if you weren't fucking shit at your job, customers wouldn't be making fun of you. How hard is it to scan things. my librarian fucked off to being homeless or something I guess and I just scan my own barcodes now when I get my true crime erotica at the library and I've never once missed.
>>11574822I stopped working there at the end of last year, I don't know what the fuck "olo" means but it really made me want to kill myself towards the end and I'm glad I left.

>>11574762I work at Kroger and when this happens I always hand ring for 50 cents less what they say because who gives a fuck.
>>11574919>>11574929Also, a lot of times this shit happens with marked down meat because the discounted bar code doesn't account for weight correctly.
>>11574943based, had a clerk charge me $2 for a big whole chicken because the price tag fell off. i'm sure it was you, definitely redpilled AND hansome!
>>11574951Don't think it was me but hell yeah I hansome.Back on the topic of self checkouts, I fucking HATE working them but as always I'm best at it so get a shift or so a week doing it. Everytime I take the time to explain to customers how to work with the scale in the bagging area they're like, "no one ever told me before!" By the way, I'm goddamm near 40 and worked 15 years in financial services before having mental breakdown from the cubicle. I'm happier than ever working as a grocery clerk and management knows they're lucky I'm there.

>>11574981Should have deadpanned said "no" and waited for the ID.
>>11574981It was probably a midget teen in disguise. She got angry because she thought she had been caught out.
>>11574919>tfw I live in a non nigger area and you don't have to put items in the bagging area It's great, they never turned on the scale feature.
>>11575074In my area they turned it off after two months because it was just a nuisance.
>>11575077>>11575077checked and based
>>11574777Cringe but lucky
>>11574762When I was a cashier I'd lie and say it's more expensive then force the customer to either grab the tag or take a picture

>>11574919family guy joke
>>11575131More like Kroger is too beta.>"You have a $20 window on what the customer says an idem is, don't question them."

GET ME A MANAGER RIGHT FUCKING NOW!the only thing that kept me sane was giving teens weird looks when they buy condoms like I dont sell hundreds of them a day
>>11575055unless you're in: the Middle East (especially UAE, Qatar) or (less so, but still) Spain, then finance is absolutely dreadful. If you're not "on the beach" (which is 98% of the time) then the best working hours you will have is 9-7pm, after which you are still expected to be on-call. However, having a 9-7 workday would be incredibly lucky: more likely it will be 9-9pm, or even 11 or 12. This goes for most of the finance world, and especially the big names (Blackrock, Mckinsey, JP morgan, Goldman, etc)
>used to work at a shop that sold paint of various colours>mostly wall paints but also other kinds of industrial paints>some of the paints were unique to the shop and created by the owners>one of the paints was called 'Eye Sleep Yellow' and was modelled on the yellowish colour of the mucus that builds up in your eyes overnight>all the customers just HAD to make fucking jokes about it especially to me because I look tired all the time>'did they match the colour to your eyes sleepy?' >'eye sleep yellow? it looks like you don't sleep all-white!' because I look tired>'oh I think you have some of this under your eyes, is that for display?'>constant fucking jokes about this shit all the time>can't do anything to stop it>tried removing all those paints from the shelf >people complained because it was a really popular colour and they wanted it back>had to put it back, people kept making jokesfucking hate customer service jobs
>>11575131Well honestly it does depend on the customer's 'disposition'**which can mean all types of shit not limited to race, looks and attitude.
>Change comes out to some random amount between whole dollars>Counting out change is literally what I do all day, it takes me five seconds>Some old boomer fuck is on the other end of the till>"Here, I think I have some change to make it quicker">Spends the next five minutes digging out and counting two quarters, a dime, a nickel, and three pennies
>>11575251It's not only to make it quicker. It also minimises the load in your pocket. But it is stupid to wait until the last minute instead of being prepared with your coins before it's time to pay.
>>11575255I understand them wanting to unload some of their spare change, but half the time they frame it like they're doing me a favor.
>>11574981>parents bringing their kids to a booze shopwhat the actual fuck
>>11575561whats wrong with that?
liked and favourited!!!
>>11575561Im not making an extra trip out for my bottom shelf rum and Im not leaving him in the car on the street with all the wierdos that hang around the liquor store
>>11575570You see, he's probably an Ameritard, where family life and culture doesn't integrate well into the late-capitalist society at large. If you're going into a booze shop, (in American) it's assumed that you're getting shitfaced with cheap booze or you're an alcoholic, and that the booze shop is located near a gas station, and it's run by brown people who barely speak your language. It's just a venue to exchange money for alcohol, nothing more. He can't even imagine that there are wine and liquor stores that are family-friendly, with cozy interiors and smiley vendors, located just on Main street, a few blocks away from your kid's kindergarten. And they don't carry fireball.
>>115756595 star postcouldn't have meme'd it better myself
>>11574943I flat out gave someone something because it didn't scan, did this plenty when I was a cashier for 3 weeks. Got switched to the positioned I was told I would be doing, cashiering sucks dick.
>gas station graveyard shift>county clerk is the real, actual Hitler so cant sell alcohol past a certain hour>People leaving bars want 2 things on their way between downtown and the ghetto: buffalo chicken pizza and Old English>Cant sell them Old English or I lose my job as the third assistant manager to the ghetto's most popular pizza and gasoline dispensary>Most people grumble and shuffle out with their pizza>Every now and then some asshat will throw trash at me>Worth it for the 4 hours of the night where all I see is cops coming in for their free coffeeSomething relaxing about mopping at 4 am and jerking off in the freezer
>>11575759I'm glad someone else enjoys the simple pleasures life has to offer.
>>11575759That sounds really nice. My brother used to work at an Esso back in the days (everyone seemed to be conveniently ill or had things to do at those times hence he got loaded with those sorts of shifts) always wondered what it's like. >>11574408>work at a restaurant>hear customers chatting while I'm making food and stuff>tfw you realize that most laughs sound discusting and you know hate the sound of children and laughter
>>11575659But the cheap booze is cheaper at the liquor warehouse than the corner store. Guess they don't have as much loss on it
>>11575826Cheap produce and cheap general merchandise is cheaper at hypermarket chains like Wall-mart, too. I'd much rather pay a bit more so that my money, and the monies of people around me, circulate among people like me, who live near me, as opposed to getting sucked up and hoarded by billionaires, never to get re-inserted into the economy again. Cuz then we get the income inequality gap we have today, leading NEETS, unemployed college graduates and wageslaves committing suicide.>and we pass the savings unto you!
>>11574784>mfw have to make small talk with the produce guys and pretend to care about their day
>>11574408Laugh at my jokes, wageslave.
>>11575659Good stores with friendly familiar staff exist in places that aren’t flyover shitholes.
>>11576033Bull in a china shop, but you'll just blame the parents like those pitbull owning faggots.
>>11576048What the hell are you saying.
>tfw worked at a community college coffee shop>expected it to be filled with annoying young adults and shit>95% of the customers are pleasant to deal with, especially the professors The other 5% are whiny girls or some autist trying to flirt with the female cashier.
>>11576052Anklebiters and expensive glass bottles don't mix.
>>11575997no thanks I'd rather have $1 lettuce
>>11576058American kids are just pieces of shit, normal kids don't randomly trash shops
>>11576059Well alright, I hope you enjoy your shitty lettuce and economic immobility!
>>11576107me have less money because me buy expensive lettuceme doing good thing
>>11575185My guess is that you have a bunch of uppity business "men" whose mouths are writing checks their assess can't cash. Then it's up to the finance monkeys to make it all right and actually delivery on those promises. I don't know what you did at financial service but it sounds awful.
>>11574830The issue isn't that they can't scan it; it's that its scanning bar doesn't function. Either it's damaged or the SKU isn't in the database; unless the cashier knows the price by heart it's not happening. I'm sorry you've never worked an actual job in your life and have zero empathy towards those that do.
>>11576114It's a way of organizing society, not really a value-judgment I'm making about an individual's spending habits. It's not that you're doing a bad thing for going to Wall-Mart, and I'm so good and mighty for buying locally. Cheaper prices ensures that consumers will spend their money there, I have no doubt about that. It's more about how and where the money circulates. An economy is always healthier if the the money circulates among the masses, (from which that money usually comes) but with big corporations like Wall-Mart, most of the money that leaves your local community does not come back. The wages and benefits are absolutely abysmal, prices are kept extremely low to drive out competition from any local retailer, and they usually hire very few people, in comparison to the stores that it forces out of business. Being able to purchase material goods at cheaper prices isn't really a relevant issue today, but income inequality, and the abundance of wealth concentrated among very few people, and the death of Main street, and the economic immobility felt by the dwindling middle classes of the world, etc. etc. - that's all still majorly relevant in the 21st century.
>>11575185I work a lot in the wake of McKinsey projects, and holy fuck do they get paid for a load of crap!
>>11574839only live once
>>11575077well you imported them senpai
>>11576170>calling a cashier an actual jobby-jobyes, and your cat is your child and your apartment is a house! anything is possible with imagination
>>11576149Close, but not really. To be honest it's not really "awful," and the bosses aren't exactly "terrible." Your clients are mostly not terrible either. (Altho terrible bosses and clients do exist, but it's not like you're in retail and you're dealing with an angry fat mom for why her expired coupons don't work) It's just the grind that grinds you down really. You become a machine at what you do, and you become proud of that, but you also realize that even if you got better at modeling, that wouldn't make you successful. You have to read a lot of books. And you definitely have to be reading 1.general financial news 2.financial news specific to your sector 3.financial news specific to the strategy. Everyday - no exceptions. And you also realize you have to build a wide network of people, with diverse backgrounds (all pertaining to business though) which is a lot easier if you're rich.It's just a lot, and it's a lot every single day. It's a lot of money too that I'm saving, but I've given up hopes of becoming a successful businessman. It's your whole life, it's just not worth
>>11575233just wipe the fucking crud out of your eyes, dude. like how hard is it.
>>11575806Based produce guy
>>11575158>uhm hey, do you work here?>clearly wearing uniform and name tagThose people have had at least one situation where they assumed someone was an employee and asked them a question only to realize they were talking to some random person
>>11575233It's not just customer service jobs, anon. Every job where you deal with the public is like that. For example, I'm a lawyer and I get asked "so, have you read all these books?" from people in my office at least once per week. I'm 90% certain you've made stupid jokes like that yourself to someone who was working and haven't realized it.
>>11576575I mean sure if you run into a regular guy with a blue polo shirt in Best Buy you might ask. But a guy with an outfit with the logos on it, nametag and a radio?
>How come your price for X is higher than Walmart's price?I don't fucking know. Why would a cashier or store associate know why the manufacturer decided to sell their product as a higher margin to a particular company or franchise or why the executives of a franchise decided on a larger margin?
>>11576341What the fuck happened here
>"Oh wow, your department is so clean!">"I was just here yesterday and it didn't look at all like this.">I'm just putting away things, ma'am.>"Well, I hope they keep you, because I can actually find what I am looking for."Fucking hate it.

>>11576704Kohls was my first job and the best one I ever had. You just scan and bag while talking, walk around picking stuff up and talking with girls you work with, or my personal favorite- unloading the truck. I used to stick a boom box on the uboat trolly and play 2pac while putting away the ninja blenders.Fuck shoes and fuck indian people though. Also, working at a department store gets you laid.

>>11576770I've met plenty of cashiers and wagetresses that have been at their job for at least a year, and they are still whiny losers. I don't think your plan would have the result you desire.Military service would be better, it would teach them just how pathetically easy it is to be a cashier, and illuminate them to why people look down at it. But when cashiering is the hardest job you ever done, you think it's the hardest job.

>>11574776These things cost jobs. I avoid them on principle.
>>11574776The key to avoiding this is only scanning half your items
>>11576986I did this so many times. Customers would ask if we were out of something, and I'd say yes. They'd ask me to check in the back anyway. Perfect opportunity to go take a shit.>>11576353Any job that involves interacting with another human being is more work than it's worth. I'm glad I'm not in retail anymore. It made a misanthrope out of me.
>>11576811You're 19 or 20 and working with a bunch of girls who are 19 or 20. Then you flirt all the time and develop sexual tension. Then you invite that one to a party and fuck her.

>>11574776>>11574919I never get those announcements.Recently I have had trouble with coupons, some not being approved.Some stores need more effort to take gift cards at self-checkout, they'll scan but need approval.When I was nearly broke, they were great to round up coins and dump $10 worth in.
>Why don’t you have [insert obscure product] I thought you guys have everything?
>>11574762retail man myself, same. they said it was in the clearance aisle? fuck it it was in the clearance aisle.unless its someone who is legitimately trying to get away with something, then its different. but why would i either call someone for a price check or walk to where they got it from for a negligible price difference thats not worth my time?
>>11577392If the purge ever happens those in customer service will lay waste to humanity and I don't blame them
>>11576033>Good stores with friendly familiar staff exist in places that aren’t flyover shitholes.Other way around, friend. White, tightly-knit "flyover shitholes" are the only place those exist, its the nigger-infested costal NPC hives that are the problem. Small town, White, flyover America is love.
>>11576645Maybe they assume stolen Walmart valor is a thing.
>>11576978Unfortunately that's what social anxiety/autism is like. Any attention is bad attention. I understand normies think they're being nice and helpful, but everything they try to do to be outgoing and considerate just makes things worse. Being an autist is suffering.

You cause serious damage if you jump two live sockets.

>>11579548I don't want to be one of those people, but working at a grocery store isn't real retail.
>>11575158>WHAT DO YOU MEAN I NEED A RECEIPT TO MAKE A RETURNMost stores don't require it these days.The major stores in my area (Kroger, Walmart, Safeway) can look up the purchase on the card you used, or can do a return for store credit. They can also cross-check when the item you're trying to return was last purchased from that store. (Oh, this thing you're trying to return? Well the last time one was sold here was 6 months ago and the return period is 3 months maximum, so.. maybe you got it at a different store?)

The State is not going to give a big reward for snitching.>>11574408I have heard that one probably a thousand times when I was younger and worked retail.Something I've noticed when I go shopping now; the kid at the register doesn't know what to do if I give them change so I can have more even money back.I.e. if the price of something is 17 bucks I might give them a 20 and two 1s because I want a fiver back. They just leave the ones in the cointray and look at me like I'm a fucking idiot. I hate this.
>>11579367People with generators make these all the time so that they can connect the generator to a dryer receptacle and back-feed the house. This is how people die from either electrocution, carbon monoxide poisoning (running the generator in the garage), or smoke inhalation from burning down the fucking house. Also, backfeeding is dangerous to the utility workers.Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.
>Customer wants to return 5 cases of wine they bought for a wedding>"Sorry I can't return this, it's against state law to turn for over purchases. I can do an exchange though">They don't believe me>"It says here on the receipt that you can do returns within 7 days">Print out a copy of the law >"It says you can make the return if it's all spoiled. This is spoiled">"You already told me you over purchased, sir">"This is bullshit, I'm never shopping here again"With 5 cases of win he won't need to shop for wine ever again, fucking geriatric boomer
>>11580622>With 5 cases of win he won't need to shop for wine ever againYou're new here, aren't you?Also, I had no idea the Land of the Free had a law like that. Even in Denmark you can return unopened wine from parties. It's pretty common to make an agreement about it with the store so you can buy plenty and not risk running out.
>>11580624>You're new here, aren't you?No, also not everyone is a raging alcoholic. I'm in Cali, I don't know why the law is a thing, but I do enjoy the schadenfreude from idiots trying to return shit when we fucking told them they can't do it when they bought the stuff
>>11580624>It's pretty common to make an agreement about it with the store so you can buy plenty and not risk running out.That's how to do it in the US, if you're not a complete maroon. When I dabbled in catering, I'd put a deposit down for 110% of what I conservatively thought I'd use, with the agreement that I could return up to 20% of what I bought. It's about a 45-second conversation with the owner/manager of the shop. Of course, I was spending about $10K/month with the same shop, just for the business.

>>11579548have the same thing as you brah, only 3 hours with the krustomers, no uniform and they don't bother me, blast podcasts and get drunk in the dairy cooler while stockin.

>>11582386The plot twist is that the customer is a cheap robot
>>11574919The best is when they got the kid with downs managing the self checkout system
>>11574776Maybe because I was a cashier or maybe they are more intuitive over here, but I've NEVER had a problem with this, hell it's actually been my first option since I can scan 12 items in 6 seconds and be done paying before I blink. What's best is that it doesn't ask me for some bullshit premium card, fuck that.
>>11574830Customers say this if the item doesn't even have the barcode on it, or if it's scratched and dirty or unscannable
>>11582631The only people who have trouble with that are legit boomers
I think I read this in one of these threads but it bears repeating. If you treat working in retail like a video game, the customers as NPCs (which they actually are) programmed to annoy you, and avoiding stupidity from said NPCs to be the end goal of tge game, rather than treating the stupidity as an obstacle in front of your goal, you will have a much better experience with being a retailcuck.
>>11582691thats how I treat my entire life to be desu

>>11574981God, people have the uglyness.
>>11583610This, to be honest.I worked retail while I was in school. Aldi in Denmark specifically.They worked us like dogs for minimum wage. I make a point of being really nice to those poor bastards now.>>11583616One time in a different Aldi store, they fired all the employees at once for drinking on the job.It was December 31st and they had closed the store at 4 PM. Boss pays for and opens one bottle of Champagne and pours a small glass for everybody to wish them a happy new year.Corporate only learned about it because one of the employees mentioned later to someone what a nice gesture it was. Cocksuckers.

That aside I love when old people stop me because they need help to get something high up shelves and thank me profusely afterwards, feels good.
>>11583568Got a box of Cola for free a few months ago. Had it stored under the cart and one box of mixed soft drinks in the cart. Put one bottle of each on the conveyor, cola first. Cashier scans the cola, 'one box?'. I assumed one box of cola, she thought one box in total.
