Retail continued....

So I am (mostly to vent my spleen) going to list any and all customer stupidities I can think of or that occur. No, I am not going to name names. Most of the time, I don't know the idgit's name or care to. I will also rate each one as to the likelihood of it happening during an average day at the store I work at. I happen to be a cashier. (Yes, I know. Being a cashier sucks. Watch Clerks sometime.) Because I was born under some loser star, I am always at the returns desk. (Thank you, folks. I can feel the sympathy from those of you who have worked returns.)

Customer tries to exit out entrance doors which has a large sign on it saying NO EXIT in two languages. Then turns to me and says, "Can I get out these doors?" -- Extremely Common. Happens several times a day.

Customer approaches returns desk and asks if I can check them out. (Which, BTW, is against most stores' company policy. I don't make the rules, folks.) -- Also Extremely Common. Happens a few times each day.

Customer feels a pressing need to talk about their life, choices they made when young that I should avoid, or about the last time they saw a pretty girl. -- Very Common. Happens a few times each day.

Customer attempts to return item without a reciept, then once the return is finished, wants to argue about how much they paid for said item. (Keep your receipts, please! Items with no proof of price WILL be returned at current price. Again, I don't make the rules. I am just the poor SOB that got stuck behind this desk.) -- Common. At least every other day.

Well, that's enough for right now. Stay tuned for more reasons why store clerks hate the general public. Trust me, these examples are just the tip of a very large iceberg.
