I love it when customers..........................
Contributed by Anonymous on Monday, January 10 @ 03:00:50 EST
I LOVE RETAIL!

actually, I do enjoy it, partly because I dont need the job now but am working a couple days a week because of affordable health insurance. I really do enjoy sales and retail isnt bad but the pay isnt very good. They paid for my education though to get me a helluva lot better job.

Okay, you guys may enjoy some of this, I've been able to get away with most of this humor because of my seniority, experience, Knowledge, and hard work ethic- I am just a smart ass at times.


1) I love it when customers ask me if I work here?
some of my responses: only when I'm in the mood, sometimes, not usually, every once in awhile, only when the manager is around, no, I just get paid to stand here and look good.

YES, I REALLY DO SAY THESE THINGS, But, with a smile on my face, most people think that it is amusing

2) I love it when I'm talking on the phone (even if its actually a customer and not my buddy or some girl ) and a customer just stands there. Like I need to effing acknowledge them. sometimes I will be polite and say " just one second", if I'm talking to a friend on the phone- I usually say to the customer" do you have a quick question?" Its great, because they usually keep it short and sweet, but if its not a quick question- I let them know about it- i say "thats not a quick question!"

Have you ever had to pull a pallet down a store aisle and didnt feel like waiting every damn time a customer leisurely got in your way. I usually pull it fast and warn people to excuse me or tell them I'm goin to the right or left. They usually get the hell out of my way.
I USUALLY SAY Loudly "HOT STUFF, COMIN THRU"


I love it when you're working in an aisle doing a reset of some sort and people walk down the effing aisle and try to shop it. If thats not bad some assholes kick merchandise out of their way when its lying on the ground. People are dicks sometimes.

I love it when you put an advertisement sign on an item in a bulk of the same items and the fuckers take the one item that its taped to. Now it goes upriced til someone puts a new sign on it. assholes. Not to MENTION PRICECHECKS, AND then they blame it on you because its not priced. Customers are funny.

I love it when people are dumb enough to think that displays are the ones for sale.

I love this "WHY DO CUSTOMERS OPEN BOXES TO LOOK AT AN ITEM, MAKING THEM VIRTUALLY UNSELLABLE, AND THEN BUY THE SAME ITEM THAT IS NOT OPENED????????
ASSHOLES!
And then someone later on wants it marked down. I just tell people we can return it and not lose any money- no skin off my back if they don't buy it. "I get paid by the hour"- and yes sometimes I say that to people- with a smile on my face of course.


Generally, I usually do help people out if I think something needs marking down to sell. But dont piss me off, because I wont help you out.

I love it when people threaten to go to another store. Who cares???? Go, please. Spend the extra gas and time and get rid of some of that steam and frustration and while youre at it- GET A LIFE!
You saved a whole dollar dumbass!

I love it when people walk around in the store when its closing down. We do soft closes, however I say to people " you know we are closed right?" sometimes they will say no (I dont know how - cause half the damn lights are off )

Alright, im done for now, I will come up with more shit, I have plenty.

Good for you, Anon, that you can take such a positive, lighthearted spin on something that seems, more often than not, to be so negative and grim. (Or at least, you did in January 2005, lol.) I wish I could have been more like this in my former retail job, but towards the end─heck, within two months of starting─I was just so drained of all energy; all I could do was be in robot mode and smile mechanically.
