You know, as far as I know, the Mayans weren't specific as to the time that the world is supposed to end. It's currently 10:41 am in sunny, yet cold, Southern California. Doesn't mean that the world still won't end. :lol: :lol:

Why do customers think that if they show up a half hour before opening and happen to catch you walking in, that you should open the store right then and there for them? I get there a half hour early because I have things to do that require not being interrupted.

Then there was this gem...I had a mystery discount special yesterday. A woman comes in last night and says "I picked a discount earlier but I didn't like it, can I try again?". I explained that it was one per customer and she said "well I was going to get some food, but I wanted a better discount". OK lady...maybe I should have just handed her the entire basket and let her pick out the discount she wanted? I would like a better discount on everything I buy too...

i just wanted to complain about my husband who i think is a terrible "cat dad". it's like he has no common sense about cat behavior. i get so frustrated with him because he has no idea how to "discipline" the cats (i.e. you don't for the most part, of course!), how to keep his voice down, how to stop making loud and sudden noises around the house, how to stop being so stressed out all the time which just puts the cats on edge, etc...

this is partly why i refused to have human kids - we'd be divorced in no time if i had to deal with his parenting skills - or our kids would grow up into psychopaths like him! i was not about to ruin this world even more by spreading his genes!:cussing

Lisa, you should write down your experiences with the new business somewhere. It would make the funniest book! I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

Ah, yes, wonderful customers. I work at a pet food store and there are a few that are geniuses. I'm kind of looking forward to what today will bring though as it's usually our busiest day of the year. Although, we had 18 inches of snow the last couple days and the day before the big blizzard was our busiest day so far, we had over 800 customers. That was CRAZY!

This one lady called as I was getting everything ready to open the store and asked if I would watch over her daughter's backpack until her husband came o pick it up. I told her that isn't a service we provided and I couldn't watch out for him while I was getting everything ready. She said that was bad customer service. Too bad, we aren't even open! I offered her to leave it outside of the door and he could just pick it up, she didn't like that idea.

Thank you Renee (sorry, I don't know how to make the ' for your "e"..lol). They have added yet another diagnosis to my list. It won't kill me, just make life a little more complicated. I will stop whining now.

Customers who write checks on accounts that are closed suck even more.
Oh, Oh! This reminds me of a funny story, but I’ll try to turn it into a complaint such as “Children talking to Checkers while in line”. :cussing:lol:
Anyway I was in the store with my 6 yr old son and he wanted a bicycle. He just would not let up, so I told him we just didn’t have the money right then and he said to just write a check. I tried to explain that you have to have money in the bank before writing a check and he looked OK with that.

Then when we got to the counter to pay, the cashier asked how we were going to pay and I said “check”. My son turned to me and said in a quite loud voice “I thought you had to have money in the bank before writing a check”. :oops:

Well everybody in the place looked at me in disgust and I was mortified. They ran the check through some sort of verification and then let me proceed with my purchase.

And customers who steal things suck too...found a tag from a Red Sox collar in the toy aisle and the collars are on the opposite side of the store. Check inventory on the computer vs what was actually on the shelf. Yup...one missing.

Builder...that's one funny story! :lol:
