Back when I was a hot single cashier, I would get asked out a lot by customers. Of course it was flattering, but it also got kind of annoying because some men wouldn't take no for an answer. So I invested in a fake engagement ring in order to ward off the weirdos that just wouldn't go away. This worked very well for awhile.
I would like to tell all the newbie cashiers out there that are looking for romance through customers; don't do it. It is rare (at least in my store) that you will find anyone good to date. While I'm sure a successful hook-up HAS happened, it is a rare occurrence and is often regarded as an urban legend.
The worst part about dating a customer is that when the break-up happens, it is awkward city when they still come into the store as a customer. It is even worse when they come in and you have to ring them up for condoms.
I don't get some people. If I broke up with someone, I would stay as far away as possible from where they worked. I would want nothing to do with them. I certainly wouldn't go into their store everyday like nothing happened and expect to go back to the way things were before.
It makes me cringe every time I see someone I went out with walk through the door. And then when they want to make small talk? I just want to scream 'GO AWAY!' But instead I end up overcharging them on purpose.
I always warn my co-workers not to date customers, but they never listen to me. We get a lot of creeps in my store disguised as nice guys, so sometimes it's kind of hard for them to resist. And when my co-workers DO go out with them and find out how weird they are, they then tell me everything which makes me look at that customer differently. There's a lot of freaks out there.
Customers: Don't ever date a cashier because your whole relationship will be told to everyone they work with and also possibly other customers. We have nothing to do but gossip in our spare time.
