Oh, I guess I should say I have a really sensitive gag reflex. Allergies don't make NORMAL people vomit, but once I get into a deep, throat-coughing fit, I'm pretty much fucked. Mom says it's been this way since I was really young. Thanks, Callista! I've never tried peppermint tea, but I do drink a lot of tea, especially when my throat feels bad. I'll try peppermint the next time it comes up. :) Ado, I agree with you somewhat. If I were the customer in my situation, I would have talked to the manager about it. But, at that point in time (this was about a month ago), I was negotiating a pay raise with the store manager, so I wanted to go above and beyond expectations. xD

Ah, that's the thing about being a consistently pleasant employee: when a customer claims you have an attitude, none of your supervisors will believe it. I love that about my job. Also, @UIdiot: Patience and tolerance are nice kthx. Cut us a break. Not everyone has impeccable writing skills.

Tell her she should just send it to the starving children in Africa. Tell her, if she boxes it up and addresses it to a valid address, you'll mail it. See what she says.

I personally think it's disgusting that people are still so low as to bully others to death over such insignificant differences. Thank you for standing firmly for that young man, and in turn, for all of us who battle with homophobia as well. I know I'm too timid to stick up for myself if I was to be confronted at work about my lesbian relationship. I want to learn how to be more aggressive about it, and knowing that people like you are out there is very encouraging. Flex those Retail Balls, girl. You've more than earned this award, in my opinion.

My family and I went to a seasonal Halloween store recently and honestly, I was AMAZED at how tidy it was. I only saw maybe 2 or 3 things out of place. (One of which I put back out of compassion for the Slaves there.) Then again, it was kind of late at night, so there weren't a bunch of Hell Spawn running rampant...

I find that people with "differences" (or whatever is P.C. these days) tend to be the most polite and friendly, whether they're my customers or I'm theirs. They try to be kind and courteous, and it shows. I appreciate that more than I can express. And I have to admit your story brought a little tear to my eye.

I have a few customers whom I would love to talk to outside of work. However, those are never the people I run into. >_>

@Marvinator DO IT. The world needs to see what we go through on a daily basis. Also, 50lb bag of dog food + clothing table = WTF? @Self Scan Queen Yeah, they saddle us with both responsibilities sometimes because the front-end office personnel all have to take turns having smoke breaks. *eyeroll*

OH GOD, LEONARD'S! That one (in the first photo) appears to be a Stew Leonard's, but in my town there's a Tom Leonard's. HOMG THE PLACE IS CREEPY. There's this animatronic show every 5 minutes (a la Chuck E. Cheese) of a cat(?) and dog(?) singing country songs. Scared the shit out of me. They have the best potato chips, though.

Oh wow. I'm currently reading up on pretty much all the posts here from the past, and honestly I'd totally forgotten about this. Damn. I remember being pissed as hell at this cause I had a Wal-Fart gift card or someshit. Ended up getting the CD some other place where they DON'T CENSOR ART. God, I love those guys. Green Day = BAMFs.

Yeah, that Over 9000 joke made me giggle like the nerd I am. :B But seriously, at my job we have these Internet-based tests we have to take every so often on produce identification. There are huge flaws in this. First of all, they only test us on items that are either really easy to identify or ALWAYS have a sticker on them. Like, for example, different varieties of apples. 999,999 times out of 1,000,000 there will be a sticker on the apple stating its variety and PLU code. Easy as pie. Second, the pictures are (as you said) bad quality, so the navel oranges in picture A look exactly like the blood oranges in picture B. The only discernible difference is that in picture A, the oranges are in kind of a pyramid shape, and in picture B, they're just kind of in a lump. Oh, and they never test us on the weird shit. Bok Choy? Tomatillo? Kiwano melon? Endive? Calabacita??

I absolutely despise having to do that, for the same reason as you do -- I just. don't. get. it. I figure, if they wanted it, they'd have gotten it already. At my store, we have "connecting items" we have to push. These items change every week. And it's always, for some reason, junk food. WHAT. Like, one week it was Little Debbie cakes. Another week it was some brand of honey buns. We've had Rice Krispy bars, Lance crackers, Oreo cookies, you name it. This week, it's candy corn. The kick is, you can purchase a bag to donate to the local Children's Miracle Network, for the kids who can't go out to Trick-Or-Treat this Halloween. Now see, this is okay, because it's for someone else. But if it wasn't for donation, I wouldn't suggest it. It's not my business to make other people's grocery lists.
