I want to give up a certain store ending in "club", but it has the best prices at a convenient location. Tonight, I realized I forgot my membership card, so I went to the service desk for a temporary card.
I shopped and loaded up the checkout belt with my large order. The checker took my card, fiddled with her computer, then handed it back to me, stating "It won't go in-go to the service desk".
I looked at the line at the desk, and the full belt, and replied "No, I don't think so. That's where another employee wrote this out. You should get a manager or the head checker to help".
She obviously didn't like that! We stared each other down for what seemed forever, until she did take the card back and huffed off, taking her time.
The head cashier came over-again taking her sweet time-fiddled around, and got it going. The clerk kept throwing me stinkeye while she checked me out.
I do get the impression they're not exactly the greatest places to work, but that's no excuse for surliness.
