I work as a cashier for a grocery store local to my state and for some reason this store seems to attract some of the "finest" we have to offer. So I'm working the express lane when one of these fine customers comes up to my register. Once I start ringing him up, the following interaction occurred (C = Customer):
C: That item rang up wrong, it was supposed to be (insert price here).
Me: Oh, I'm sorry about that. Let me go check the price for you.
C: I'm gonna go show you.
He takes me to the item in question, and as it turns out he was wrong. I think whatever, it happens from time to time. No big deal.
Boy was I wrong. Because apparently, every single one of his items rang up at the wrong price, and he would take me to every item, only to be proven wrong again. This process is repeated about 10 times before the transaction is finished, and by that point I had started to accumulate a pretty long line for express.
But what really put the nail in the coffin for me is what he said on his way out:
C: (under his breath) Thanks for nothing.
I'm honestly really surprised that I didn't go off on the guy. Especially since he was wrong every single time. But what's done is done, and this barely scratches the surface of the kind of people I've encountered in almost 2 years at this store.
