Today was a busy one.  Since I am a cashier I had alot of people buying Valentines Day gifts from me.

Oh the secrets I have to keep until tomorrow.

After work I decided to do a little shopping of my own.  I got a hair brain idea to make giant kisses and cookie bouquets for some of the people at work.

I spent way too much money on this project, and now I am not sure I am even giving them away.

Since I shopped after work I still had on my uniform.

I have noticed when I shop in my work shirt I get NO RESPECT.

I will be looking at an item to buy and people will walk right in front of me like I am in their way.

This one man really got my insides riled today.

He was in one of those electric carts and screamed at me to move out of his way because he was a paying customer...

um me too .

Even though I was not wearing my name tag and had my purse and shopping list in hand he didn't care that I was there to shop too.

I could go home and change my clothes first...but why should I?

And then I went to our last register to look for some of our specialty candy when I noticed a basket of what I thought were returns as we put them there.

I went to go by the basket to have a look and guess whose basket it was...

Mean guys.  He yelled at me to get the hell away from his basket.

I thought he wanted it so I apologized and pushed it over to him.

He got even madder and asked me what the hell I was doing.

I said, "Bringing you your basket"

And he called me an idiot and said he had it there so that he could drive by and put stuff in it.

Well all I can say is that I hope the people who do returns thought it was the returns basket like I did and put all his stuff back on the shelf.

Mean old fart.

I came home and made my projects and then Rick wanted Shrimp so I made Shrimp Scampi. 

I hope none of you think I am insensitive.  Believe me I go out of my way for the customers there, but when I am a customer I should be treated the same.

I have almost been hit in the parking lot because they feel like you aren't a person if you work there.

Being a cashier I witness at least one a day, yesterday at work I was at the register and this guy came in to pick up his case of wine he had bought, as he was lifting up the box I asked "Hey you got that box ok? " He just stared at me for a minute and walked off "I turned to the lady at my register and said "I guess so" She laughed , you are a great person, do'nt let the jerks get you down, Love Ya Lisa XOXO
