New reader and poster here. You may call me Smackme, since I work there, and I wish to say that to custys and cow-irkers alike sometimes.
I'm back in Smackme Hell after a year hiatus, and have been dealing with a new behavior that's got me miffed. What do you do when custys absolutely will not talk to you?
I'm not talking about cellphone users that mouth words at you as you are ringing them up, or the people with earbuds in their ears (though they equally piss me off); I can deal with those. I was checking out a girl yesterday who REFUSED to say anything to me. She had ear buds in, but it wasn't like they were terribly loud. I just went along with my friendly wage slave spiel and rang out her transaction, but she just didn't say a word, just paid for her stuff and left without a glance at me.
Now this custy had a tag on that identified her as a fellow slave- I presumed she worked a job similar to mine- so what the hell was her deal? She said nothing. NOT A SINGLE WORD.
The second time this happened was with a cellphone custy and his twig of a girl. AGAIN, they both refused to acknowledge or talk to me, even when I asked them questions regarding their order. They just kept talking to each other. It must have been a-hole custy day, since this happened maybe two or so hours after the first chick.
Maybe I've been out of Smackme Hell far too long, but is this an old thing, or a new trend in custy behavior?
I just brushed it off, but it's really been bugging me.
