How To Be a Professional Customer: Twelve Ways to Make Your Retail Shopping Experience More Pleasant For Yourself and the Associate



1. The light: Each register has a number, and when it’s lit, that means I’m willing to serve you. No need to ask if I’m open when I’m standing there at the end of my lane, watching you. If the light is off, do not jump into my line. Yes I see you, and yes I am going to give you death eyes during your transaction.
2. The scanner: Some things don’t ring up. Maybe they don’t have a tag, so I have to get a price check. No, I can’t just take your word that it was “uh, three something.” It had a price and that will never be “free.” Just like how that joke will never be funny.
3. The things you don’t want: If you don’t want something, give it to me. Don’t leave it somewhere, like the conveyor belt, or my aisle, or in another department. You were raised better than that. I’ll make sure it gets where it belongs so you can find it when you come back and want it. 
4. The conveyor belt: This is were you put the groceries. Not your purse, your money, coupons, child, open cup of coffee. We have a scanner gun for the big/heavy items for ease, as they are difficult to maneuver, and small papers have a tendency to get pulled under the belt. There’s a desk for you to do your business. Utilize it.
5. The card machine: Sometimes the machine does not read your card. If this is the case, a message will come up on our screen. You telling me that it did work, only to wonder why your receipt isn’t printing will only set you back longer. And every store varies on how you select credit, so don’t assume or get angry when you cancel your order by hitting the red x. 
6. The children: Please control them. I understand that they are miniature hurricanes, but don’t just smile when they do something to inhibit my job, like spinning the bag carousel around, or yank things out of my hand. Teach them some respect or leave them home.
7. The change: I cannot open my drawer for you unless you make a purchase. I cannot get you quarters for the toy machines, or break that 100 down for you. If you ask nicely, while my drawer is open to give you cash back in another denomination, and I am not running low, I am happy to be of service.
8. The money: I am required to check your higher denomination bills for authenticity. You are not required to tell me you “just printed them this morning.” I will grit my teeth and smile, but I stopped laughing long ago. Also, please hand me the money instead of leaving it somewhere for me to scoop up. My hand is extended for a reason.
9. The lines: I hate to point out the obvious, but if it is the middle of the day on a weekend, you can expect to wait for a few minutes. I am going as fast as humanly possible. But when you stand there and don’t take your bags, or get your method of payment ready, it takes longer, and those behind you get frustrated. Coming during our slower hours will most likely get you through the line faster, but if it’s in the wee hours of the morning, don’t expect a crew of ten of us to be waiting for you.
10. The self checkout: I am one person watching four terminals, and my own. I can only handle one person at a time. The machine hates when you so much as breath, so please be patient with all “bagging alerts,” or go to a real cashier. Also, my “magic gun” (no, you cannot zap something for me) is not magically connected to your terminal.
11. The coupon: Some coupons come off when they are scanned. Others do not. In some cases, it is the fault of the computer and I can type it in manually, but you will need to wait for a manager’s approval. In other cases, the coupon does not match the product, and getting into an argument with me about it will not change my mind on that. I do not accept expired coupons, and it is not my fault that it was on the product bottle that you have yet to purchase. If the coupon does not apply, I will give it back to you.
12. And finally, the employee: I am not your punching bag. I have feelings, and a life outside of this building. When I say “Hi, how are you?” I do genuinely care, and expect some sort of response. Pay attention to me, so you don’t forget a bag (you know, the one I pointed to and said “don’t forget your last bag,” only for you to nearly leave it behind), or get upset later over a price. That phone call can wait. Say hi back, don’t tell me about how beautiful it is outside though I’m trapped for another six hours, and be a generally decent human being.

This list isn’t to say that all customers are evil. There are some really great people out there, ones that keep me from yanking all my hair out. So for the sake of preventing premature baldness of Walmart employees everywhere, please consider following these rules to becoming a better customer. 

End rant.

Coworker: just so you know you can take these to customers service and get them rapped or you can do it yourself over there if you want.

Women: so this is a self help store know

Cowoker (gives her a werid look) : i just said you can go get them rapped for free at customer service.

This women comes into our store all the time and says this and its so anoying. she says it if we dont pack her stuff fast enough, if we leave packing until the end. its like get over yourself you have arms and legs. it wont kill you to walk over or to wait becasue we have other things we have to do.
