Lately, I have had cashiers --usually female,  put my change on counter instead of in my hand.    I have had someone not bag my items at all.   I paid for clothing, my items were still on counter and then the girl who was some type of hispanic  just starts ringing up the next person.  I asked her can i have a bag....she handed the bag to me.   So I go....OH we have to bag our own items now??  She doesn't even respond.  


 Or my favorite, which has happen to me several times over the past year---after I have swiped my debit  card and my receipt comes out, the cashier does not tear the receipt from the register nor hand me my bag,  they turn from the counter  before my receipt even prints out then tells me to grab my receipt and have a nice day as they are  walking away from register.    lol  This happened to me again this morning.    I know I shouldn't even care..but this makes me feel some type of way. 

I have worked as a cashier before and I have never placed someones money on the counter or told someone to grab their receipt.  Usually I could give customer change in their hand , ask would they like to have receipt in bag, hand  them bag and bid them a nice day.  

  It is just something about me or does this happen to everyone?  Does anyone else even find the examples I listed rude?

Ask for a manager next time this happens. I had a girl put my stuff on the counter. She had a funky ass attitude. I asked for a manager immediately.The manager checked her ass right away

I basically only spend my money at places with good customer service. Where the person I'm working with acts like they are my bff. For example, nordstroms. The person will ring up your items bag them nicely or do a gift bag, then come from behind the counter and give them to you and walk you out if need be.

Or the grocery store. I try to only go to Gelson's. Best customer service ever. If you don't want to wait in line they will open a new one just for you. The cashier puts your groceries on and then someone else bags them. It's worth the expense.

Vote with your dollars.

Sorry this has been happening to you.  Don't spend your money and feel bad, ask for a manager next time.

The last time a cashier did that I looked at my money like she was crazy then I said," give me my money like you received it" then I gave her a look like don't start nothing wont be nothing.

I was fully prepared to call her manager but it didn't get that far.

Also DONT be afraid to call the corporate office if you have to. I did this on one of my local walmarts and the store manager called me to let me know that the lady was fired.

all the time! Sometimes they dont tear the receipt, they lazy azz is like "you can take your receipt".
I hate it when they put my money on the counter, especially when i had my hand out.

And at Publix, now i find that they dont want to bag my gallon of milk. There's been multiple times when i only bought milk and they will ring me up and walk away. Or ask me do i want a bag. Do you think i want to walk to my car with a cold heavy gallon of milk in my hand?

I also hate it when they act like they dont want to be there. Sounding all apathetic, looking around, sighing.

I've noticed that as the economy got worse, customer service got worse. I dont have a problem with people putting the change on the counter b/c I dont want to touch the person anyway, but I have zero tolerance for the people that act like they cant bag up the item that they are paid to bag up and I see that happen way to much and yes I have to go over their head right then and there when it happens.

That's pretty damn rude Geek
I would mention it to a manager and/or get their customer service number and make a call.

It's pretty surprising at the lack of emphasis on real customer service in a lot of stores, especially chains.
And by that I mean over all attitude, not just standing there fulfilling your job description.

But I'm pretty picky after having always worked in retail /shrug.

Not excusing the cashier, but I think for the most part when customer service sucks its because the company sucks and is usually not treating the employees fairly. I really do not like supporting companies like that. I know firsthand because I work for a telecommunications company, and service within the company (ie communicating with other departments sucks, so I know the customers go through hell...I used to be a customer, but I took my money elsewhere...so I don't even use my company's products).

I remember what it is like to have a minimum wage job(s) that barely pays any bills. It's hard and it sucks. If you feel like you're going to be rude to me you don't have to say a word to me besides hello and have a good day.Stern Smile

Poor planning on your life decisions dont not give you the right to be rude to me. 

Put my money on the counter, I need a refund and I will write corporate a email, calls can get lost im the shuffle.

Hand me a bag for what, I dont work here.

I also wont "run and grab another item" cause the one I have is snagged, has a hole or whatever the issue is. You wear the badge, you get the check you get the item.


They are hoping you wont follow through but I do. You applied to the job on your own free will, and yo knew what the job entailed so if you felt it was beneath you then you should not be working there.

It wasn't a black owned business giving terrible customer service? GIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIRL I heard it all

 
They trippin. For unskilled labor you can be replaced in a hot second. Real talk for just about any job you can be replaced but for a cashier...man that turnover time gotta be like 20 minutes.
 
I was a cashier at Pathmark and got fired for throwing a rotisserie chicken at a customer...girl I was fired within 20 seconds and replaced less than three hours later.
 
If you don't want your job then don't work. Either show up with a decent attitude or find something better. Or at least prepare to find something else.

Middle eastern store worker told me I had to spend $5 to use my card instead of cash. I only needed to spend $3 for my purchases. I told him that I'm aware that its illegal to make a mandatory card minimum for card use, and that I will report him. I said I'm smart.

And they took only $3. Hos

So tired of them taking advantage of black neighborhoods.

I just did this a few weeks ago at the beauty supply near me. The item i wanted only cost 1.29 Im not payn extra when I only need one thing. The cashier called the manager and they discussed it but claimed it was their store policy. I said I dont care what your policy is thats against regulations. So, I didnt buy anything at all and I called Visa on the way out to report them.... I have not been back since

I use to get in trouble for being apathetic when I was a cashier.

I was a teenager. Couldn't care less if I got fired or complained on. Plenty of other minimum wage jobs out there lol

Customer got mad at me once because I didn't place her groceries in her cart after bagging them. Bish, you don't see this line behind you? Your arms don't work? You expect me to ring up, bag and place your buggy full of groceries in the cart? How you gonna get them in and out of the car? Dontchu know I have to walk all the way around the counter to reach your buggy? Dontchu know my feet hurt?

F yo feelings. 

I aint one for retail. lol

I don't expect anything from cashiers but for them to ring my items up.
