Bullseye Hell: "Well, do you know anyone who DOES know what they are doing?"
From RHUer, September, 2009:
This story is one that happened to me, just earlier TODAY!!
Victim/Me-Cashier at Target
The following happened while at work as a cashier-
*I am ringing up a guest and have many guests in line behind the current one. We are very busy..and of course it happened.
A fairly large woman (I refuse to call her a "lady") comes up behind me and taps me on the shoulder.
Before I can ask how I can help her, she starts talking.
Her: "Where do you got Jonas Brothers stuff" (Keep in mind this was a middle-aged women, no doubt looking for a gift for her teeny-bopper daughter)
Me: "Well, you'll have to be more specific, like what exactly are you looking for?"
Her:"I dunno, just stuff. With The Jonas Brothers"
Me: "Well, in electronics we have DVDs, and CDs, in stationary we have folders with them on it, and I think in bedding section we have pillows and sheet sets, might any of that interest you?"
Her: "NO! I what else you got, where do you got it"
Me: "Well, we have no specified Jonas Brothers area, and I can't help you unless you can specify at least what type of item your looking for.
*all this WHILE i am still ringing up "GUESTS" All of them look just as exhausted as I do from answering inane questions. By this point I feel like I'm talking in circles to a 9-year old*
Customer: "So your saying you don't know what else?"
Me: "I'm not saying that I just need you to..."
*CUTTING ME OFF*
Customer: "Well, do you know anyone who DOES know what they are doing?"
This was actually a pointless question as she waddled away before I can answer her.
I swear, If there's anything I hate more than the Jonas Bros, it's idiotic "GUESTS" like her.
*Sigh* Another day another dollar
