1. My first customer of the day: "Your hands are orange."

2. Me: "Hi, how are you doing?"
Male customer #s 4, 9, 10, 13, 23, 24, 25, 31, 40, 42 ... "Just fine how are you."
My breasts: Um, she's up a little bit.

3. Female customer: "I got this shopping pass in the mail that's good from the 14th through the 16th. I bought these items on the 11th. Can I get the discount now?"
Me: "Um, no."

4. Male customer: "blah blah blah, I just bought a house with an annuity, blah blah blah Freddie Mac blah blah, don't have to worry about that blah blah, I have a double fireplace blah blah blaaaaahhhh."
Me: Blink. Blink. Nod. Blink. Nod.
Co-worker: (after customer has left): "It's like you're wearing a sign."

I remember when I was working at Gabriel Brothers, my line was nearly to the middle of the store, but all the lines were like that because we only had three cashiers in, and it was around Christmas. Well, this woman wanted to just buy perfume, and the whole time she was in line, I could hear her cussing and complaining about the line. And then she was SO rude to me that when she was leaving (and left her penny-which normally I wouldn't care) I said, "Ma'am, you need your change." and she said, "Uh uh, you keep it" and left. So, I yelled after her (probably just making it worse), "You need to take your change so I don't get in trouble for going over."
Well, she came stomping back screaming, "WHAT BITCH?! I KNOW you didn't just get smart with ME! Get me your manager." So, when I did, she kept telling my boss I needed to be fired because I'm rude and they need more people working so the lines aren't so long (makes sense!). So I just got fed up with her and snapped, "I guess if you don't want to stand in line then you should have kept your lazy butt at home instead of shopping 3 weeks before a HOLIDAY."

retail STINKS!
