As you can see, I am not the only cashier that does little things to get my revenge. Here is a recent comment by Anonymous:

I work at a supermarket. I get terribly rude customers all the time. I
once had a lady literally snatch her receipt out of my hand, I was
polite and I had done nothing wrong. I have had a customer say "Oh I
forgot something, I'll quickly go get it." She came back 15 minutes
later. I have customers who are on the phone and don't say anything to
me and get annoyed when I have to tell them the total of their purchase,
extremely rude. I have customers say to me "I'm in a hurry, please be
fast". or "I have a doctors appointment in 5 minutes, can you hurry?"
No! It's your own fault for not a)shopping fast enough, or b) being
late! So when I get pissed off at work (which is a lot of the time) I
tend to do things.
1) I squish their bread as I 'gently' place it in their bag.
2) If they are buying tofu, it gets squished.
3) The cap of the milk is slightly opened.
4) I overpack bags (Our bags keep getting thinner).
I don't ask if they would like the beef or other meat separate from the
rest of their food (We have to ask, I've had a lady yell at me for not
asking when I did, she wasn't listening)
6) I take as long as possible to put through their payment.
if you give me a large note (say a $100 note) and you only spend
$45.15, I will give you back 3 $10 notes, 2 $5notes, 2 $2 coins, 1 $1
coin, a 20cent coin, 6 10cent coins and a 5cent piece. And then i will
say, in a sickly sweet voice, "Sorry about the small change" and smile.
really, don't be rude to us. We are nice people and we have done
nothing wrong to you, yet, so if you are polite to us, we will be polite
Stuff not to do:
1) Instructing us how to pack bags is not nice. We know how to pack bags, we work at a supermarket.
give me your green bags after I have packed half your stuff in plastic
(Plastic bags are free in our store). I will not repack what I have
3)If you have two small items and the person behind
you has many items, DO NOT hold your two items, because I will assume
you are both together and start on the large transaction (because I
don't see your items). So don't get mad at me for that.
start unpacking your load when there is a metre gap between your items
and the person in front of you, I can see where theirs stops, I'm not an
idiot. And unpacking all your stuff once i have put through their
payment, are you trying to hold up the whole store?
5) Shove your
Flybuys (or other rewards card) under my nose throughout the whole
transaction, as you can probably see I am busy, half the time both hands
are literally full. I will put it through at the end, calm down.
If you swipe your own Flybuys (or rewards card) and LITERALLY SMACK MY
HAND OUT OF THE WAY, I will be pissed off, and that is putting it
lightly. Can you be any ruder? I mean really? Are you that impatient? Do
you like hitting 18 year old girls? Don't be a dickhead, you think it
saves time, but it just gets us mad.
I get mad, yes, but is it warranted? Yes.
Be nice to cashiers and we will be nice to you.
polite and courteous to everyone who comes through my checkout. But if
you are rude or treat me badly, things will happen to your food..
At least I know I'm not the only one out there! I think I should start a Cashiers Anonymous group so we can all vent our frustrations. I could pass out packages of Little Debbie snack cakes so we can all practice squeezing them.
