We have one of those old gas price signs where we have to go outside with the long pole and change the gas price numbers that way.
A lot of stores these days have digital ones, but not us. We like to keep it old school.
However, the one thing I can't stand is when I go outside to change the price, and people bother me or yell shit at me along the way.
I've been called many names when raising the gas prices. People driving in their cars will yell profanities at me or flick me off if the gas was something like 239 and is raising to 299. Like them yelling at me will somehow cause me to say 'Oh, you're right, I shouldn't raise it. Thank you for swearing at me. Because of you, that made me realize that gas should be cheap."
Well people, I don't make the gas prices, I'm just doing as I'm told.
Even people in our parking lot will stop me along the way and ask if the price is going up or down. And if it's going up, they worry that they aren't getting it at the cheaper price because they "were in the parking lot before I started walking outside, so they should get the cheaper price". Don't have a fucking heart attack, I don't raise the price of gas until the sign outside says it first.
Raising the gas prices is one of the worst jobs for a cashier. No one should have to take that kind of abuse.
Although, anytime I lower the price, people act like my fucking best friend. The worst thing about that though is the customers that will storm in after I've lowered the price and tell me "I bought gas this morning and you lowered the price? I want a refund of the difference." Uhh, no.
It's okay, I remember every one of you that has cursed at me or given me the finger. You'll get yours one day.
