I worked at Kmart for almost 2 years and it was a job from hell with some of the types of customers I had come to my register!
One lady literally yelled at me for smiling at her - she asked me why I was laughing at her. I told her I wasn't laughing, I was smiling as I do with all my customers. She complained to my store manager before she left about my "behavior" and he had to act serious as she yelled at him about it. As soon as she walked out the door he busted out laughing.
I've had customers throw things at me, do price checks on 20 or more items when there are price check machines throughout the store, stand there and take their time making decisions when it was time for me to ring them up while there was a line of people behind them, and worse of all, the customers who talk on their darn cell phones and ignore me, even if I give them their amount.
