Retail Secrets

Ramblings of a department store cashier.

Nov 10

Patience is a Virtue

If you had an appointment to make in less than 30 minutes, don’t go shopping. If you have a husband who is meeting you on his lunch break in 10 minutes, don’t go shopping. If your kid gets out of school 3 and you’re at The Department Store at 2:45, don’t go shopping.

I cannot stand it when these people come up to my register (usually on the phone) and dump a pile of knotted clothing on my counter and say to me “Im in a hurry, make this quick.” No please? Where are your manners, lady?

When a cashier hears “Im in a hurry,” do you know what we do? We tend to slow the fuck down. Oh really, you’re in a hurry? That’s so funny, because Im not.
