That's not what I said!

"I said I want 374 a dollar straight and a dollar boxed!" said some grumpy old guy to me in front of the lottery machine. I heard him cleary say he wanted 367, but I'll let him slide this time. I cancel the 2 tickets and print out 374 and as soon as he got to lookat them he siad

"That's not what I said, I want 326!" he said in a piss offed voice. I cancel the tickets yet again and repeat slowy and very loudly "3    2    6", "Yes, 326 is what I've been saying!"

I hand him his tickets and surprize they are wrong number... He is gettingangry at me, when he said be saying he   was sorry. I had him a piece of paper and told him to write down his number, that I'm not canceling one more ticket because he doesnt know what he wants.

He started to imply that I was stupid but a regular customer was standing in line and said "Sir, you said 326, I heard you, its your fault if the number is wrong." The old guy rolled his eyes and left.

Silly co-workers

Co-worker - "Ugh, I don't get why all these gross people hit on me all day?"

Me - "Your shirt is way too tight and your underwear is showing..."

Co-worker - "You think that's why???? I can't believe people notice that sort of stuff!"

Did you know that I don't want to hear your music?

So stop playing your crappy music through your cell phone speakers and walking around the whole store, standing in line, being waited on, all awhile your cell phone is playing music that sounds like it's from a 1970's stereo that's under water. This doesn't make you cool, this makes you rude and your parents should of never had you.

Shake shake shake

"I want a case of Heineken, the small ones." says some guy who doesn't even look at the huge cooler of beer.

"Yes, they are in the cool.." I get cut off by him asking "Can you get it for me? I don't know where they are."

"Sure thing." I start the long walk to the big beer cooler, the guy follows me. Since I'm getting the case I always go inside the cooler to avoid taking emptying the store shelves. The guy stands at the door waiting for me. I come back out with his case and go to hand it to him, but instead of him reaching his arms out he steps away from me... and asks "How much are those?"

So I carry his case over to where the huge price list hangs above the Heineken cooler door and say "$17.99 plus tax."

"Oh.... well how much is that with tax? Is there anything cheaper? I only have $20"

"It should be under $20 with tax, all the prices are listed above the cooler doors." I'm still hold his case of beer.

"Oh, well I'm going to look around a bit."

"Ok." as I walk to the counter with this stupid case of beer that this guy may or may not buy. So when I get behind some isles on my way to the front I give the case of beer a good shake, shake and a shake. Sure this guy isn't being mean or anything but he is being needy and annoying and doesn't know how to hold his own case of beer.

He comes up to the counter 10 minutes later and says "Ok how much is this with the tax?" We ring it up and sure enough $17.99 x 6% is under $20 but he had to go out to his car for change because no one wants change. Another customer comes in, we voided out the Heineken so we could um work. The guy comes back in and is trying to butt ahead of the person we are waiting on. I don't know why he would think we would wait for him. He has to wait 2 extra seconds for us to re-ring his Heineken up, so he rolls his eyes.

After he left I said to my co-worker "I shook up his beer."

"Thank you."
