I have decided to tell you a little about my job.
As you all know I am a cashier at a grocery store.
I am one of the oldest cashiers who works
there...no I am not old.
Most of the people who work there are teenagers to 20 year olds.
I will describe some of them to you
.First we have the managers...
Mr. Nice Guy is just 18 years old.
How he is a manager at this tender age has something to do with the fact of people he "knows".
Any way I really like this kid. He makes working there fun. He isn't serious all the time and looking for mistakes or talking down to anyone.
When I first worked there though I did see him get on to one of the little bagger girls in front of everyone. I took him to the side and told him that that was not a professional way to handle the situation. Since then he has changed his policy of dealing with his employees.
Good for you Mr. Nice Guy!
Mrs. Bossy...now she is older than me and drives me CRAZY.
She just got promoted to some level and it has really gone to her head.
She is so picky about EVERYTHING. One day she made one of the baggers (who is very shy) go home early because he did not greet on of the customers. Hello can anyone say Warning???
Anyway she critizes everyone from how many items they put per bag to putting stickers on everything that is too big to be put into a bag.
If you are back from your break one minute late (because maybe you had to pee...) you get a 5 minute lecture....hello who is wasting time here?
Then we have Mr. Kiss Butt. He has to shake your hand and say hello to you everytime
you clock in. He asks the customers if they need help with their grocerys for the third time after he hears the cashier ask "no"
Bagger asks "oh no thanks"
and then he asks again "NO!" Some people actually get offended if you ask them if they want help out...but it is required. Especially the big macho guys, the old guys and the independant older ladies.
Miss Stay In The Office On the Phone
really drives me batty. If we need an override or help on the register it takes forever for her to get there. And then she walks as slow as a turtle like
there is no end to a day. And then she acts like she was so bothered to be interupted and had to get off her ....... to come do her job.
Okey and Dokey are two other managers
that I like.
They are always there when you need them and appear like magic as soon as you call them. I like working with those two.
Well I guess this will have to have part two or three. Barbara
How does Lisa make all those long entrys without running out of room?
