Annoying Co-Workers

I work with an old lady every morning and every morning she drives me crazy. It's kind of a love/hate relationship, with me usually getting annoyed at the stuff she does.

One thing that I can't stand is when she makes a comment about items people purchase. If they buy a drink, she will look at it while ringing it up, checking out the calorie counts and things like that.

Or if someone buys candy, she tells them they should eat something more healthy.

I know she's joking around with the customers, but when I'm a customer somewhere, I hate when a cashier makes a comment about what I'm buying.

When I'm a customer, I just want to get in and out of the store. I usually don't want to make small talk about the Twinkie or Ding Dong that I'm buying. Just let me buy my shit and get out of there.

And that's what I know most of the customers are thinking when she's ringing them up.

I should have a friend come in while she working and buy condoms, duct tape and rope. Let's see what she has to say about that then.


  1. Yeah - and a copy of "American Cheerleader" magazine.

    A clerk once commented on two red peppers I had purchased for stir fry - I didn't ordinarily purchase them because they were kind of pricey, where I lived, but I wanted the red for the color and that kind of pepper for the flavor. The clerk said, "Well THOSE cost an arm and a leg," as if I were a millionaire or something and just squandering money on useless produce.

  2. The only thing I care to hear from a cashier when I'm shopping is "Hello, how are you today" and "Thank you, have a nice day"
    I really think you should do that with the condoms duct tape and rope, that would be hysterical

  3. LMAO @ "condoms, duct tape and rope"...priceless!!! Can I volunteer to be that person?? xD

  4. I like your condoms, duct tape and rope idea! I'm for it. And yeah, cashiers like the old lady annoy the eff out of me.

  5. PLEASE send someone in to buy condoms, duct tape and rope from her and please tell us how it went!

  6. The old ladies I work with drive me crazy too. And for similar reasons. I hope I don't end up like that but I worry that it is probably inevitable.
