First off I am not one to complain much about my job but its been bad today. I work at Walmart as a cashier and actually love my store and 95% of the customers. But today for whatever reason I am at my limit with people. So here are my complaints:
First I am not a mind reader. When the debit machine asks if you want cash back don't look blankly back at me like I have the answer to the question. I have no clue if you need money or not. And don't get mad at me if after staring blankly at me for a significant amount of time if I ask you to hit yes or no.....
Also on this note: I bag alot of groceries everyday. Everyone wants things done different, don't' yell at me because I didn't think to bag your 12 pk of soda. Been there almost 4 years and have never had anyone ask me to do so, nor thought to ask. Please don't get irratatd with me when I ask if you want your water, laundry soap or other bigger bottles bagged. I am asking what you want to help you. Not everyone wants them in bags. And for the complainers about bagging I normally bag my stuff light unless asked to make heavy. Eggs and bread go together, frozen goods and cold food, produce, meat, dry goods for foods, and then non food items together. I am not a crappy bagger.
If the light is off we are closed. If the light is off and the closed sign is up, the lane is closed. If the light is off, sign is up, and I have the drawer out I am closed. Its not hard to figure out!
I know there is not enough cashiers trust me I have brought this up multiple times to my managers already and as you can see nothing is changing. Yelling at me is not going to change anything I do not hire people nor make schedules. Trust me if I did things would work differently.
Lastly If you are beating your kid in the bathroom, I am talking pants pulled down with a belt (as today). Of course we are going to call the cops on you. Thankfully you were stupid enough to do this in person so it could be stopped. And your an idiot if you think we should have given you a warning that they are on the way so you can leave. Don't want to get caught for your abusive behavior, don't do it in public! But thankfully now, hopefully you will get help and your children's life will be better.
I know I will get bashed fo rthis but oh well. Better to let off steam on here then at home!
