Irritating Instances For Cashiers

Why do you insist on melting my patience?

Irritating Instances For Cashiers
Hub Pages

My patience has been wearing very, very thin recently due to a stressful daily life. The best way to get it out is to rant about it, so here it comes. Working at a movie theater can be as fun as it is stressful. It's not hard, but people can seem to make your job hard with the little things. Cashiers experience this type of annoyance the most. Though I haven't been a cashier as often as before, I still seem to get those customers when I am. Though most of these could go for cashiers anywhere, some are specifically for theaters, but regardless, here's a list of things that annoy me when I'm a cashier.

1. Please hand me your card instead of ignoring my outstretched hand.

My eye twitches in annoyance just thinking about this. I don't get why people want to slide their card across the likely butter-covered counter instead of handing it to me like a normal human being. Now your card won't work for a few days because the strip is covered in oil. Good job, you played yourself.

2. Don't lie to me about your child's age to get a kid's ticket or free admission.

Clearly your 17-year-old does not need a kid's ticket. His facial hair gave it away. Also, your 5-year-old isn't young enough to get free admission. I really appreciate the kids that correct their parents on their age, embarrassing the adults by catching them in a lie. Don't make my job hard because you're too cheap to pay for your children.

3. When I ask if you want butter on your popcorn, please give me a straight answer.

I don't want any of those "Does it look like I need butter on it?" or "Who doesn't want butter on their popcorn?!" kind of answers. I'm just here to do my job and get you into your movie as fast as possible. Your rudeness isn't appreciated and your jokes aren't original.

4. No, I can't throw your trash away for you.

I'm a cashier. Not a trash can. You will walk by several trash cans on your way to the movie, but sure, let me stop what I'm doing to throw your trash away. Rude.

5. You make me nervous when you grab the cup from the top.

Hold the cup correctly, and you won't drop it. If you drop it, I have to clean it up, and there's a good chance you'll spill it all over the counter and my register in the process. Stop trying to be cool, just hold the cup regularly please.

6. Straighten out your bills before handing them to me.

I want this transaction to go as smoothly and quickly as I can manage. I don't want to take the time unfolding the bills you handed me because you're too lazy to, and then get annoyed when I'm taking longer than you would like. Seriously people. Get your crap together.

7. Just like the cards, hand me the cash.

The counter isn't going to do the transaction, I am. Please, hand me the money. Don't lay it on the counter. Don't toss it towards me. Don't carelessly pull out bills and leave them all over the counter. My hand is outstretched for a reason, okay?

8. Avoid giving me "ugly" change.

Ugly change is any coin below a quarter. The prices at my theater with tax come out to be whole dollar or quarter amounts. I don't have any nickels to give you change back if you pay in three dimes. Quarters are so much easier to work with. Respect the effort we put into making the transaction easy for you, and give your ugly change to the bank instead.

9. I don't want the money you pulled out from your bra.

I've literally put gloves on to take money given to me just after being pulled out from a customer's bra. I don't want boob sweat money, okay, is that too much to ask for?

How Much Of A Coffee Snob You Are, Based On Where You Live

Your state may determine how picky you are about your coffee.

271964

When it comes to coffee, everyone has different criteria for what goes into their "perfect cup." Some caffeine lovers, though, are extra particular when it comes to their beloved beverage. One survey found that the state you're from (or the one you live in now) may play a part in determining how much of a coffee snob you actually are.

LiveShopper Sassie, the company behind this Coffee Project survey, received input from 1,000 coffee drinkers via their mobile app, PrestoShopper, to ask various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

Here's the coffee shop where you should get your morning brew.

436910

Coffee, for billions of people, is one of the only things that can get us out of bed (after hitting snooze a time or two), especially in 2020. Because, if we're being honest, is there anything that beats a quality cup of coffee on those mornings when all we wanted to do is roll over and go back to sleep? The answer is no. And if you're headed to a coffee shop to pick up your caffeinated beverage, you don't want to sleep on the best coffee drinks in America.

According to LiveShopper Sassie's Coffee Project survey, when it comes to chain coffee shops, there are definitely preferred spots you'll want to hit up for your go-to order — whether you order the classic, frozen, or flavored coffee, an espresso, tea, or other. To figure out the hot spots, 1,000 coffee drinkers across the United States took to LiveShopper's mobile app, PrestoShopper, to answer various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

5 Ways To Cope With Election Day Anxiety

The 2020 presidential election is less than a week away, and if that doesn't scare you, I don't know what will.

We all know that this year's election will be different in more ways than we can count. Insert quote about unprecedented times here 🙂.

For those of us with anxious tendencies, this election will be more stressful than most, and I think a lot of people will agree when I say that I'm dreading election day. The constant poll-checking, projections from analysts, and 24/7 news coverage will be enough to have any sane person ripping their hair out.

Don't get me wrong, we definitely saw some red flags from Clare in episodes one and two of this season of "The Bachelorette," but after (spoiler alert) Yosef got sent home last night, she's quickly become the villain of her own season, waving some pretty bright red flags we can no longer ignore.

To get more specific, last night Chris Harrison told the guys they'd all be getting dates after Clare canceled the cocktail party following the fight with Yosef (please let this be the last time I have to think about this a**hole). Unfortunately for the men, Clare also ended up completely ditching the first group date she promised them. Yes, that's right, she stood up the men who were supposed to have a fun day with her and showed up hours later without an apology (or a reason).
