Rainbow Land

Forget the pot of gold...This is what you find at the end of the rainbow

I know that working at Superstore is not the most glamourous job in the world, but that doesn't mean that I don't deserve a little respect. Yesterday, I could have jumped across my till and just decked a customer because she was so rude. Here is a little play by play of what happened.

After working there for like a billion years, you get a sense of when you just don't talk to people because they are in a bad mood, this was one of those situations.

So this lady, who I shall call Barbie, comes up to my till, complaining the whole time about how she hates to shop at Superstore (the simple solution would be not too...but that is besides the point)

I ring up her groceries: some toys and a couple big boxes that have blow up pool toys etc. She looks at me and asks if if we have any bigger bags. I apoligized and said that we didn't and was about to start on the next customer when she rudely replied :"Well that isn't very convenient" and looked at me like I was responsible for this horrible travesty in her life!

My response to this was that I was sorry but I didn't make the bags, and directed her to a comment card at customer service. Barbie then replied that "No wonder you work at Superstore!" like I was an idiot and this was the only job I was capable of doing (nevermind that I have to memorize about 100 codes for all different produce and bulk)

I can't believe that people can be so rude. I am working there part time to pay for my UNIVERSITY DEGREE. I promtly told her that her comment was uncalled for and directed her to pack her bags and leave the store and to not bother going to customer service and buying her cigarettes. She then told her son that the had to leave because I WAS BEING RUDE!

I get so frustrated when people treat me like dirt because of where I work. Anyways thanks for listening (rather reading) my rant. I had to get this off my chest.
