Gobble Gobble...Really now?

You would think that the holidays would bring out the best in people, but it's really quite the opposite.

Customer become raging maniac's when it comes to them and their money.

Case in point...

The store I work at had a HUGE Thanksgiving sell today. I was lucky enough to only have to work the afternooin shift, but it was busy none the less.

On several cases, I found myself face to face with some of the rudest people you could possible imagine. I had a man literally throw money in my face in order to avoid spending another minute in my line. On another occasion, a women in my line decided to tell someone at another register to shut her kid up.

Amazing when you really start to think about it. What is it about these times that makes people go crazy. It's as if we get so caught up in the image, that we forget to stop and take a breather.

I for one, am thankful for...

-Debit/Credit Cards (making my life 10x easier)
-15 minute breaks. (A life savor.)
-Patient people (They make my job bareable)
-the Scan-gun thingy-doodle. (allowing me to feel like the Cash-inator 24/7 and giving me the satifaction of imaging scanning bitchy customers to oblivion)

Things I am not thankful for...

-Screaming children. (Please, either take the time to quiet them or be considerate enough to come back at another time.)
-Price checks. (You know who you are. One price check? Cool. Two price checks? Okay. 8 price checks? Shananigans!)
-Grunters. (When I say "Hello. How are you today?" and all I get is a grunt, it only says one thing. You are so exceptionally rude that you cannot manage to inhale the brutal air to say something back so instead you will create an internal noise in order to prevent yourself from having any sort of conversation.)
-Those who insist on paying a $20 purchase with change.

Happy Gobble Gobble Day.
