This one is my fantasy for retail...
Customers: If buying alchohol at my store, please have your ID out and waiting-yes I need your ID even if you were in here yesterday buying the same item. And it doesn't matter if you are 21 or 101, I still need it. I have to card my own mom if she comes in. And no, I can't sell you the alchohol without an ID, and I won't.
Please have your money out and waiting. Don't wait until I have finished scanning all of your items before STARTING to dig for your wallet. Or to pull out the checkbook. Doing either one of those things really messes with my time score and I don't want to get in trouble for a low score because you (generic) take 5 minutes to write a check. (I'm not bitter, nooooo......)
If you have reusable bags with you, don't bury them under everything. Please keep them up in the seat of the buggy so I don't start putting your stuff in plastic bags. And yes, I do know how to pack a reusable bag, and no, you don't get the reusable bag discount if I don't put the stuff directly in the bag. (One person had me put stuff in plastic so she could put into the reusable.)
Please for the love of diety, if you are getting multiple types of apples, please put each type in a seperate bag. They might cost the same per pound, but inventory needs to know how many we need during restock. On the same note, please don't roll your eyes when I reach for the fruit/veggie code sheet. I haven't been here long and I'm still learning them.
If the manager says we can't price match this, please don't argue with her. That only makes her upset, and I have to close the store-she says when we go home.
Please don't mess up the folded displays. I understand that you might need to lift a few to get to your size, or to grab a few sizes. But please don't just ball it up and drop it back on the table. If anything, give it to the person working in the fitting room-much easier to fold 10 over the course of the day than 10 when we are closing and want to go home.
If I tell you your card has been declined, please don't get angry with me. I have no control over your card working or not. This may sound rude, but it is your duty to make sure that you either have the money in your bank acct. or to pay the bill in a timley manner. (one guy put his store card payment in the mail on veterans day, and it still wasn't in on Sunday- not my fault....)
Sorry this is so long, it's been an interesting month. Oh, and yes, those frozen turkeys are heavy-this is the 20th one I have lifted today...
