AND ANOTHER THING. THE SIGN SAYS “10 ITEMS OR LESS” NOT “10 ITEMS OR LESS UNLESS YOU FEEL LIKE PUTTING UP 500 THINGS WHEN THERE’S NO CONVEYOR BELT…JUST A COUNTER THEN BEING RUDE AND NOT HELPING YOUR LOVELY CASHIER PUSH YOUR ITEMS CLOSER SO THEY HAVE TO DO SOME CIRQUE DU SOLIEL MOVE TO GET THE REST OF YOUR CAT FOOD”
Some guy in my line got out his debit card to swipe in the machine so I asked “Is that credit or debit?” and he just stared at me for like a minute and said in the rudest voice “Uhh…debit.”
Like, okay, bitch, I can’t magically tell that your PNC bankcard was debit card when it can be used as both.
I was working in the “10 Items or Less” registers with Sailor. I was the first register and it seemed he would only call people to his register if they were an attractive guy. Then Stinky Globe came running over and asked him for help, but I went over instead. All he had to do was type in “500.” He isn’t as stinky as he used to be. I guess some supervisors or mangers told him to take a freaking shower. Whatever’s left of his hair still looks greasy though.
Then later during my break, I was sitting in the little part of the breakroom with Bubbles, and she said that Stinky Globe’s lunch was half an hour before hers and he was still there with 10 minutes left on her lunch. I swear he’s going to get fired, he doesn’t know how to do anything.
Then Sailor left at 8, and I was done at 9 so I kept thinking someone else was going to come take over one of the registers since they’re the only registers that sell cigarettes, but I had to actually go tell one of my supervisors that I was done. They didn’t even realize.
Ok, Stinky Globe, you don’t just stand there and look around at the ceiling when you need help you ask. It also might help if you knew what the hell you where doing, not asking me every 10 seconds for help or asking what something means. “Card Read Error”, ” Invaild Card Read”, “alternate Tender Required”, are not the hardest terms to know.
JUST HAVE THEM SLIDE THE CARD AGAIN….JC
When you work at Walmart you have to deal with some real character’s, but there is some times that one person you will remember for the good. I had a little boy with lukemia come through my line with his whole family. This little not was so happy and didn’t seem to have a care in the world, but you know that deep down that poor little boy had some rough things going on. I wanted so much to let that little not have what ever he wanted and to give his parents all the money I could to take him on vacation and pay his medical bills.
We all think we have it tough that poor little boy had it rough and he didn’t let it show. He was loving life and didn’t show how scared and sick he was.
Some guy came through my line that looked exactly like John Foster from Skins, but he had an American accent so I knew it wasn’t him.
Sometimes, I work in Lawn and Garden. There are two cash registers, neither have conveyor belts to put your things on, just a counter and there’s only two places to bag compared to 6 on a regular cash register and 3 on the 10 Items or Less. It should really be 20 items or less, but whatever.
This guy yelled at me for not turning the belt on.
There is no belt.
It is a counter.
I once had an older lady, probably between 45-50 come through my line. She bought a bunch of little stuff, and her total was around $50. She wanted to use her credit card to pay so I hit the “Credit Card” key on the cash register and told her to slide her card. Sometimes when you slide your credit card, the screen pops up with “Please Enter PIN Number” and all you need to do to fix it is press “Cancel” then select “Credit.”
Up on MY screen, it said “Invalid Card Read, Press Clear” (happens a lot) so I said “It had an invalid card read, can you please slide your card again?” This happened one more time before I said “Can I see your card, please? I’ll slide it in here.” After I slid the card, it went through. Then she got all huffy puffy with me saying that it only had an invalid card read because I “didn’t give her enough time to hit cancel” I said “No, it popped up as soon as you slid your card.”
“No, it didn’t. The screen was Enter PIN, I have a credit card.”
“I know, but it popped up on MY screen that it was an invalid card read and sometimes the machine pops up with the wrong screen.”
10 minutes later after kindly proving my point, she still thinks it was my fault that it had an invalid card read, and Green, who was working the cash register in front of me was laughing so hard while she was there that he had to walk away and come back.
