It pisses me off when someone comes and doesn't even try to find the product on their own. The come in "Hey, where's your batteries?" or "Where's the pharamcy?" Look people Rite Aid isn't that big of a store, and see that asile right infront of my register that says batteries on it? And there's a huge sign in the back, part of it is blocked, but I can see PHA and ACY, I wonder what it says.
I don't have a problem if somebody actually has looked first and then asks where it is.
Next is those people who don't understand how to wait their turn. I'll be helping a customer and some person comes in, "hey, excuse me, hey where's your phone cards, hey I'm talking to you." Get in line and wait until I'm done. Plus the phone cards are in a big blue rack in front of my register, right before the batteries.
Oh and if you have a 50 or 100 dollar bill, don't break it on me with a $2 dollar purchace (yes it happens all the time). If its under $20, you pay with a 20 you *******. And I am not a ****ing bank, there is one next door. You can not have $300 in cash back. The max is $50, granted if there have been $50 worth of purchases made with cash.
And you are ****ing retarted if you wait at a register with no light on, and no body behind the counter. People will wait at register 1 while I am at 4 (there are only four ****ing registers so its not like it is hard to find me). They will sit there and stare at me, like come help me, while I have people in my line. I know you want your ****ing photos or ciggrets, you come wait in my damn line because that is where I can rig you up. And when you do finally decided to come over since nobody is there to help you, don't yell at me asking "Is there anybody working over there?" because you know the answer is no.
Last, the thing that pisses me off the most, is those *****y college girls that didn't pick up her birth control before the pharamacy closed. No, they will not let me, a low paid college kid, to break into the pharamacy to get your birth control. You can however, buy some condoms.
I can relate to most of that, I work at a Do-It-Best. For some reason when people walk into a store like this they assume the person working the floor is going to walk around holding your hand showing you where every last damn thing on your list it. People wont even look, they will stand in a line to let me help them, when in reality they could of found it on their own faster if they had just looked. Every asile has a sign above it with the major things on it, do the math for gods sake. If you are looking for a 1/4-20 bolt look in the asile that says "fasteners" not the on that says "Plumbing Tools". I could go on all day about this...
And god forbid you don't carry every little thing that everyone needs, this is a hardware store, not Wal-Mart. We don't carry toys, we carry hardware. And people get pissed when we can't compete with Lowes on their prices, yeah no ****, this is a locally owned and operated hardware store, not a national chain that is run from hundreds of miles away.
