Back when I was working as a service clerk at Walgreen’s in 2008- I was still in the Honor Characters Henieken Shirt Furthermore, I will do this middle of checking out two customers and then this woman demands me to get her a pack of cigarettes. I told her that I was still busy with the ones ahead of her and that she was going to have to wait until they left.She then started complaining that all she did was ask me to get her something. As soon as I took out the change to give to those people before her- she then tries to order me that I should be counting it out in front of them. I said the amount was showing on my register and they could just read it on there/Then she fussed at me that counting it out for them would be the polite thing to do. Those people took their sacks of items and walked out. I then asked that snotty woman to tell me what kind of cigarettes she wanted. She rudely says what she wants and tells me to hurry it up because she was NOT happy that she had to wait.I go get them feeling ticked off and then come back asking to see her I.D. Then she whines that she does NOT need to show that she is at least 18 because she obviously is older than that. I said that it was required by law for all customers who looked younger than 40 to verify their birthdate and I pointed at a sign at the counter actually saying so.After I handed her the pack of cigarettes and waited for her to pay me- she said I had the ‘worst customer service’ out of anyone she had ever bought anything from. Then she fussed at me that I was NOT telling anybody “thank you for coming” and basically acted like they needed to get out of the store.She griped about that and took out her driver’s license. I entered in the date of birth as that has to be done with anybody under 40. The managers required the clerks to read it right off the I.D. and cameras hidden inside the ceiling could be used to make sure. That is why an employee should NEVER let a young person buy cigarettes without proving they are the right age.
Let me start out by saying, I had 5 kids. So “no” I don’t hate children. Do I think I was the Honor Characters Henieken Shirt Furthermore, I will do this best mother ever? Not for a moment; but I was the best mother I could be and believe I gave my kids the tools to be polite courteous young adults for the most part.Well super mom was at Hobby Lobby today with her young daughter. The week before christmas week, it was crowded as heck! She was buying at least 50 individual christmas ornaments. Her 3-year-old wanted to remove each ornament, individually, and hand it to the cashier. I get it! You want to teach your daughter to do things for herself. You want to give her the gift of achievement. This was a fantastic teaching moment for you. It was plainly obvious to everyone at Hobby Lobby, that she is the apple of your eye and you are indeed “super mom”! I applaud you for it! HOWEVER; you seized this moment at the expense of others. Walk to the other side of the circle. There were 10 people lined up behind you. People were jumping out of that line like crazy. You may be a stay at home mom, with all the time in the world; but you never considered the fact that some of those people in line were on their lunch hour, desperate to get back to work on time. Others had other errands to finish. A manager had to call for another register to be opened. I was the woman right behind you. Watching this train wreck in abject fascination, as you lifted her up to reach in the cart to grab another ornament and gently placing her on the ground to allow her to place each ornament on the counter. Every single one!!! I lost count at 32!It was my day off. My errands would be done when I was done. I was not pressed for time. My problem was, that you were so focused on your moment (or half hour + in your case), that you failed to acknowledge the line of people you held up. You failed to recognize the stress on the cashier’s face, as she had to wait for your game to play out. This poor girl was forced to look at the line of people, knowing that she alone would be on the receiving end of their impatience.
