Forcing a Donation

What NOT to do when you're a cashier at a clothing store:

Cashier: Your total is $19.90. Would you like to make a donation to St. Jude's Hospital?

Customer: No, that's okay.

Cashier: You don't want to donate even a dollar?

Customer: No.

Cashier: What about rounding your total up to $20.00? That's only a 10 cent donation.

Customer: I said no.

Yes, this happened; a cashier pushing a customer to donate. I'm glad we don't do this shit at my store. And that cashier is also lucky that she wasn't ringing ME up that day. My sister was the customer and is always too nice to say anything when stuff like this happens. So when she tells me I'm usually the one that gets fired up and complains.

This cashier was also a complete bitch to my sister regarding some promotion that was going on.

Listen, I get it. Customers are assholes around this time of year. But forget all that, why try and make someone feel bad because they don't want to donate their money? My sister walked out of that store feeling like a bad person because she didn't donate anything, but she didn't WANT to donate because of the attitude of this cashier.

So yes, I will be calling the manager or going to see the manager in the store and complaining about this lady. It doesn't matter that it was my sister. If I had been in line and heard her doing this to someone else, I would have said something too.

Please, all cashiers out there, don't do this. No one has to donate any of their hard earned money. And for all you know, they may donate their money somewhere else. Or they may be having a rough time right now and can't afford to give. Not even 10 cents.

Has anyone ever had this happen to them before?

New Look for the Cashier

So I decided that it was time for a new look, especially since I'm working on getting Confessions of a Cashier published sometime soon.

So here it is and I love it. What do you think of it?

I'd like to thank Diana at Custom Blog Designs for giving me exactly what I wanted.

A happy cashier means I won't take it out on my customers!

So if you're looking for a new blog design, send her a message. She's great to work with. (Unlike my fellow co-workers who have been calling off this week and pissing me off.)

Thanks again, Diana.

Doughnut Be Stupid

Sometimes I just want to smack a customer's hand and tell them 'No!'

No, you cannot rip a doughnut in half and ask if you can have it for half price.

Yes, that is what a customer did yesterday. I would have thought he'd bust out with a 'Just kidding!' and run back to grab the other half of the doughnut, but no. He was serious.

When I told him that he couldn't have it for half price, he walked back over to the doughnut case, put the half doughnut back and walked out of the store.

Wow, times must be tough if you can't afford a 75 cent luxury.

I didn't have the energy to run after him. Instead all I could do was shake my head.

If I ever see him in the store again, I'm going to add 75 cents to his total.

But an assface like that probably knows not to come back.

Loafing Around

While this is semi-old news, I'm still going to talk about it.


Are they gone for good? Who knows. But I DO know that everyone was racing out to get them once the story hit the news. We sold out of Twinkies and Wonder bread that same night.

So now that we were out of bread, we had to look for another supplier. So we decided to go with Nickles bread. Mainly because the truck had stopped at our store to get gas.

Now we have Nickles bread and I'm not sure how I feel about that. Why? Because the delivery guy was a dick when he first came into our store.

He had looked at our bread display, which is quite measly but that's because we don't focus primarily on bread to make a living.

Then he told us that we needed to sell a minimum of $50 a week for him to even consider our store. He told us it wouldn't be worth his time.


So now that they are the major bread place around here they are now being picky? I don't get it. Even a store doing half of that would still be business.

And he stops at our store to get gas all the time so we can't be THAT far out of his way.

Just for the fact that he said that makes me want to tell him to go away.

But we need bread. Our customers need something to absorb all that alcohol in their stomachs.

Let's hope that Twinkies and Wonder bread come back soon.

Was anyone saddened by the demise of the Twinkie?

I couldn't take the look of this site anymore so I had to change it. Even though this one is extremely basic, it's here for now until I have a few minutes to find something I like. Although some of the templates out there are pretty shitty.

So because I am changing things around, I'm going to leave you with the best.sign.ever.
