Halloween

Halloween was pretty much uneventful at the store this weekend. There is one thing I don't understand though that happens every year.

Some people get so pissed off that we won't sell them alcohol or cigarettes if they are wearing a mask or face paint.

Why would someone get mad about this? The cashier obviously can't see your face to tell if you're old enough. What are we supposed to do, use our x-ray vision?

It's usually the teens that get the angriest at us. We had a girl come in on Halloween that started yelling at my co-worker because he wouldn't sell her beer. She had a devil costume on complete with red facepaint.

She told us that we should have had a sign on the door specifying to take off masks or facepaint or else she wouldn't have come in. She looked 12 in her slutty devil outfit. After she left I put a sign on the door, but we still had people come in getting mad about having to take off their masks.

I honestly wish that everyone in the world was required to get a job in customer service at least once in their lives. That way they would understand how horrible working with the public can be.

  1. I can just see her screaming with the red paint on her face. That alone would have made me crack up. Idiot.

  2. Well - not to mention how you're supposed to match the masked/painted face with the one in the drivers license photo. Duh.

    How about this, general public: Buy your booze BEFORE you get ready for Halloween.

  3. I worked as a cashier at a craft store. It was the worst job I've ever had. Thought it would be fun because I love craft stores. haha boy was I wrong. They wouldn't let me switch to stocking shelves because the "boys" did that and the "girls" did the register. I hated that rule.
