Im going to start with my thanks first, thank you to all the nice and understanding customers..the ones with the patience , the ones who come up to the cash with a smile upon their faces..the ones who help you find the smokes they are looking for because they realize you are new...
Now..to the customers who do not realize this , let me give you a tip...if you stand at the interac machine, and hold your card facing you and give us a look like we are supposed to know what card it is...we the cashier's can NOT see what card you are holding, you have to tell us that it is debit, mastercard or visa..we are not mind readers! lol.
If we ask you for ID when you ask for a pack of smokes , please do not get offended..we are only doing our jobs! Take it as a flattering compliment...we wouldn't be asking , if we were NOT sure that you are 19 and over...it means you look young for your age..you should be proud!
On another note...if you are in a rush , and have a lot of items..you don't have too, however it will help speed up the process if you place the items in categories..cold food together, dry food together, clothes together and all other items..in the same pile. But like i said , you don't have too..it's just a helpful little tip :)
We as cashiers are told to pack your bags a certain way , as to not damage any of your items..
Just to add..i love my job , i love helping customers ..and i love the interaction with the people on an every day basis ..i am a happy cashier..my little vent is more like a helpful tip..it does not by any means put me in a bad mood lol.
