I was in line at the grocery store. It wasnt my turn yet but the cashier said "here, put this at the end of my conveyer belt". It was a "closed" sign. I did it. Then she said "can you tell whoever comes up behind you that im closed?" I told her straight to her face "I dont work here". First time going grocery shopping in this city and a cashier expects me to do her job. Wtf.

it ts a pretty common request. and it makes sense. this way people in line behind you wont start unloading or waiting in that line unnecessarily if they didnt motice the sign on the conveyor or that her light is off. and the cashier wont have to be shouting past you to send them to a different line. its common courtesy. not that you are doing her job

Really? You're upset that she didn't tell you to go to another line because she was closing(kuzz that's what most would do that I've ever been around)? And I'm pretty sure with her ringing you up next, you would have been just as pissed off if she'd stopped what she was doing to put the sign up herself. Quit being a bitch... Posting a sign and saying one little sentence IF someone comes up isn't "doing her job". Ffs if that's all you found wrong with your new town so far then count yourself lucky.

I cannot shake my fucking head hard enough at this dumb shit.

Op that was kinda rude and harsh of you but theres no reason why she as a Worker can't tell a customer that herself because yes it is her job so I'm not going to be too critical of your comment. Jeeze if I had a job right now I would be grateful and wouldn't expect others to do my work :(

I just got wrongly terminated with no reason for it about two days ago now :(

It's called manners and courtesy. Sure she can yell across you to tell the customer that. But how much nicer is it for you to say-I am sorry this line is closed.

Did it ever occur to you that IF someone unloads she might have to then ring them up (that manners thing again) and then be late picking her kid up from daycare or school or camp? Maybe it's her kids birthday and she has to pick up a cake.

Who the hell knows. You just decided to be a Giant Douche about it, instead of following the norm which is to be polite and considerate. Go you!

Oh I know. You have made it clear you don't give a damn about anyone else. I am sure if you go there again and she sees you, she will get that sign out ahead of you-not behind.

I try to treat people with the utmost kindness, because I tend to go to the same places over and over.  It pays off.  The restaurant I go to on a regular basis  and tip well at NEVER charges me for a soda, they always find me a table quickly and the manager usually picks up my tab a few times a year.

When I forgot my wallet at my regular grocery store-the cashier I see so often vouched for me, and I went home and called in my credit card number to them-WITH my groceries.

Being nice pays off.
