Here is a list of my pet peeves as a retail slave.
I get that you, the customer, think I am stupid; but I can spell Byzantine, and I actually know what it means!!! What a shocked look you had on your face. A lot of us have an education and an actual brain.... SUPRISE!!!!!
Please stop asking me to help you and you only when you can clearly see that I am on my own and am helping others or you can clearly see I am talking on the phone. Saves me having to apologize to my other customer because you are so selfish.... Yes I mean you!!!
Please stop telling me that the price for the book is too high, and you can get it cheaper online. Publishers set the prices not me. You have made me resort to saying, "Really, you can most likely get it cheaper online? Go for it, even if you can't use the computer. Want a better price online???? Learn the computer."
Please stop taking numerous books out of order and leaving them in obscure places. I have nothing better than to clean up after you, I guess. Minimum wage does not make me your maid. Actually they get paid more than me.
And please say please!! I must admit I actually told a rude customer the other day that I would ring in her purchase if she said please!! She was very rude and plonked her purchase on my counter and said can you ring this in now??? I will if you say please! I sometimes let the thoughts in my head actually come out of my mouth.
