We workers don’t always want to be here. We almost never want to know your life story at the cash register. The customer is not always right. No matter how much you think you are. We aren’t always happy, we are human, things happen that annoy us and sometimes it could actually be you.
As cashiers or stock people, I don’t know why you think we make up the prices but news flash: we don’t. We don’t make the prices ‘outrageous’ and we don’t make them ‘a great deal’ either. We just ring out your purchases. We just put up the products. We don’t try to get annoyed with you but sometimes, people make it way too easy.
We are also human. Please treat us that way, I am sorry that you might have called and been told one thing and come in the store and it be different, but it wasn’t me on the phone so don’t act like it. I don’t know how to work the phone. I accidentally hang up on people and then I get yelled at more when the person I hung up on calls back.
Please just treat us like human beings. We make mistakes, we have attitudes, we have personalities and comments that you may not agree with. But just because we are stuck behind our nametag and company name, does not mean that you are always right and can yell at us for not providing the upmost convenience to you.
I hate to be the one to break the news to you, but it’s not always about you.
The employee you just yelled at who just really wants to go home.
