As someone who works on a til I have to say the guy sounds like an arsehole. It was a reasonable question, if everyone comes in and pays for something worth a quid with a 20 pound note you run out.of change very quickly. Plus she could have been there hours
(also customers who joke about not having to pay are the worst)
^Hmm, Trailer Trash and ‘Chavs’ aren’t quite the same – although I guess similar in many ways. Here in the UK, trailer park inhabitants are normally known as ‘pikeys’ or simply gypsies, Chavs on the other hand tend to occupy the state owned mass-housing areas (Council houses to us, similar to what you might call ‘Projects’)
I don’t know about American Rednecks, but British chavs are particularly vicious, classless, and badly-dressed – actually, they take their dress sense from what they see in American rap videos, it’s always amusing to see a white guy wearing chains and baggie sportswear, strolling down his shitty street thinking that he’s Tupac or 50 Cent.
I was a retail customer service manager for a while at the Mart of the Wal. Running out of change in the till was a big no-no for my cashiers. They’re supposed to notify a supervisor to exchange some big bills for rolls of coins or smaller bills. I can’t blame the customer here. Do a better job, cashier wench
@13, as someone who also worked for the same company, CSMs were assholes when is came to giving cashiers change and/or actually helping *anyone*.
@6, no, that is not “part of [our] job”. Our job is to be friendly and polite – to a point. I guarantee you that this scenario didn’t go down the way the OP suggested. She was probably trying to explain to him that everyone else (including the managers) was busy at that exact moment (it happens more often than you think it would) and that she didn’t have the correct amount of change in her register. I’ve been there. When she asked if he wanted cash back, it wasn’t done in a sarcastic way, it’s probably a mandatory thing.
What a load of shit treetrunks. The guy was courteous enough to apologise for not having anything smaller, the chav cretin on the till had a strop about it (imagine having to actually do her job!) so he retaliated. Perfectly reasonable! If she’d asked if he had anything smaller because she was low on change that would be fair enough, but the “I don’t wanna count out £18.97″ makes it clear she’s an obnoxious lazy bitch who should be sacked. How bloody hard is it to count out £18.97 anyway? £10 note, £5 note, 3 £1 coins, 50p coin, 2 20p coins, 5p coin, 2p coin. Simples! If that’s ‘all the change’ a supermarket till has there’s a problem.
Obvioulsy a lot of you fucks have never worked a shit job as a register monkey. Seriously you can run out of change in about three crusties. The problem is the corporations only want like $30 maximum in the register at any time, cause when you pay your employees under the poverty line they are more likely to steal from you. Also no, taking shit from losers like this is not in the job description. The corner store isn’t a fucking bank and the cashier explaining they don’t have change isn’t a jerk for it.
Also I think we in the US could probably use SWAG interchangeably with CHAV.
