CALGON TAKE ME AWAY!

HERE IS WHAT HAPPENED TO ME YESTERDAY...

 

 A customer cussed me out because I asked him if he wanted to buy some candy that we have at our registers....we HAVE to ask them or they get it free. He was an old fart and he yelled every bad word I have ever heard in my face. I had a hard time not crying. but I didn't . He even took the Lords name in vain all because I said.....Sir we have our candy on sale today would you like to buy some? OMG you should have heard what he said to me....it was horrible.
I hate asking people to buy that stupid candy but we have to because if we don't and they get it for free we get in LOTS of trouble. One day I had to ask a man if he wanted to buy some toothpaste and He took out his teeth and screamed at me....do I look like I need toothpaste????

OK AND THEN.....

Earlier in the week my manager noticed that they had my hours scheduled wrong.

You see me and another cashier named Barbie are the only ones who do the candy.  When she isn't there I do it and visa versa.

They had not scheduled either of us to do the candy this weekend.

They had me scheduled to open the store from 5:45am - 2:15

This person comes in and drives out 8 electric carts, puts bags on all the registers, puts ourt the rugs and mats.  Changes the security stickers to another color and waits on the customers when they come in at 6am.

So since no one was scheduled in my place I was ALONE both days and was not told that no one would be coming in.

So I am doing my candy and notice no one is showing up to open....so I have to stop doing my candy and do the above chores.  In no time.

Well it happened again today.

I was so angry wondering who was suppose to come in and didn't.

And then I started laughing when I realized who it was....it was me.

Since they changed my schedule to do candy they forgot to schedule an opener......

I had to laugh.  Or I would have cried.

Tomorrow I do candy again and they PROMISED  someone would be there to open....

you still here?

ok well so since we have been so busy this weekend I have not been given the time to do the candy properly.  I have 6 huge totes of candy waiting for me to load unto my cart tomorrow and fill the 12 lanes.   God I hope someone shows up.....

If I win the lottery, you can quit.  I got so I hated working face to face with the public.  It was bad enough over the phone...but at least you didn't have to look at them.  That old man should be ashamed...Linda in Washington state  http://journals.aol.com/lsfp1960/LindasWorld/

what a jerk that guy is for yelling at you about the candy. Some people are just mean and cruel and it's nothing you did that's for sure. I sure hope they have someone there to open so you can do the candy. I'm not so sure I can do candy, I would eat it while doing it. LOL. Have a great day.

Maybe he used to have to stock the candy and they forgot to schedule openers too, lol..... I get so tired of forgetful/unorganized managers and rude customers......
Have a better day and big hugs!!!!
