I guess you can call me Gutsy Custy.
I don't work in retail, but I'm the go-to shopping helper for ALL of my friends and most of my family, so I interact with you guys a lot.
Basically, I've always tried to be the best custy I can be- not demanding, polite, everything you could hope for. It just makes everyone's day a little bit easier and better.
So, here's how you do it- feel free to share this list with everyone you know. It's simple and very effective.1. GO TO CUSTOMER SERVICE: If you can't find an item, or need to know where a certain section is, it's usually ok to ask a salesperson, right? But if you need in-depth help, the customer service desk exists for a reason. Use it.
2. USE THE GARBAGE CAN: Seriously. Don't leave your crap around. It's disgusting, not only for the employees, but for the other shoppers. Bin it.
3. DON'T REFER TO EMPLOYEES WITH 'PET NAMES': This includes sweetie, babe, baby, honey, sugar, gorgeous, or anything else you would use with your girlfriend (or boyfriend). It's really rude, and nobody likes it. Also, you're seriously creepy, guys.
4. IF THE EMPLOYEE IS BUSY DO NOT REPEAT DO NOT DRAG THEM AWAY FROM ANOTHER CUSTY: This is one of the worst things you can do. Your problem is your problem, and other custys have problems too. Wait your turn bitch!
5. IF YOUR EXPERIENCE WAS GOOD, SAY SO: If you got really good help, or had a great experience at customer service, tell management! Name names. They'll get a commendation, you can share your great time, the manager looks good. Everybody wins! And if you're a regular, chances are that employee will be extra-nice next time. What goes around comes around!
So that's that. I'll be back with some of my horror stories (some people I shop with, honestly it's embarrassing) another day.
I wanna thank all of you, Retail Slaves, for putting up with us, the custys, day after day after mind-numbing day. Some of us really do appreciate you!
And please tell me- What other things do you want custys to do?
