This sums things up nicely
« on: October 04, 2008, 07:59:39 PM »
I did not create this icon but it does properly express every feeling I had when working as a cashier.



Needless to say, I earned a lot of hit points from 2005-2007

I'd also like to make an icon that says "No, I cannot give you a refund just because you didn't like your movie. Honestly."

If you do, can I have one that says "thinking the CD is 'crap' is not reason enough for a refund"? Clown even threatened to call the cops on me after I pointed out our very clear signs stating the ACCC rules.

Oh I've had that happen too, just without the calling the cops part :/ What part of the movie title Suicide Club made them think "I didn't know it would be so violent!"

That is an awesome icon!!!

I want one that says "If I could make things appear out of thin air, would I work here?!?"
You are only young once. After that you have to think up some other excuse.

Also: "Just because it's on the website, doesn't always mean we have it right on location RIGHT NOW."

Because O*m*g* we all know you can't like without a Domokun messenger bag for the few days it takes us to order one to the site.

LOL!!!!

Your customers must shop around, I think they've been here, too!

Sometimes we sell out of popular items. I have to tell people to come back <whenever> day. The funniest response was "Well, yeah, I could come back.... but I don't want to."

Mmmm hmmm. So you want us to mail one to your house? Or save it for you until your next annual venture here??

Yeah. Don't hold your breath.

I always wanted to tell customers, "You're right.  We keep the most desired stock back in a secret room where only the most deserving and worthy customers are allowed to enter.  Let me escort you to the vault now."  Then I'd take them and shove them out our rear exit door.

I worked at a mom & pop toy store.  We weren't monumentally busy.  The staff was usually just standing around waiting for sales or dusting stuff.  Trust me, if we had more Holiday Barbies or New Kids on the Block dolls they'd be out.  I promise.

Awhile back, the owner of a dog with a chronic skin condition said impatiently, "Can you give her something stronger this time?"

While I sympathized with his frustration, I wanted to say, "Oh yeah, you're right, sir. My miracle skin cure is just sitting here on the shelf, and I've been holding it back. Come on-if I had something more effective, I'd have USED IT ALREADY!"

In their defense, doctors (and vets) will frequently prescribe a milder version of a treatment.  It's usually better to go with the lowest/least powerful dose, if it gets the job done.  Case in point: My doctor prescribed a BP medication for me, at a very low dose.  It's working fine for me.  My friend was prescribed the same dose and it worked somewhat, but the doctor increased the dose to get the right result.  Should the doctor have just prescribed the higher dose to start with?

I start with the lowest dose frequently and understand what you're saying. In this case, I had already pulled out all the stops and had explained more than once to the owner that this particular dog's condition was not curable, just somewhat treatable, and he seemed to think that there was something "else" that I was withholding for no reason. This was probably a poor example of the original point.
