Tales of a grocery store clerk

“Do you need any bags?” “Do you have an Air Miles card?” “Will that be debit, credit or cash today?” “Thanks for coming in and have a great day!”

I swear I am saying these in my sleep these days. Today was by far the busiest day yet at the store! I am completely wiped out – which I can’t really understand. I stand in one place for 5 or 6 hours, I don’t really move except for packing bags and sometimes helping the old people by putting stuff back into their carts. How can a job where you just stand there and talk to people be so exhausting? I really don’t the answer to that but it is very true!! Today’s shift was over 6 hours and I don’t want to get off my couch now to do anything!

I enjoy talking to most people, but why are there always some who have to ruin it for the majority of people? Today there was a lady who told me that it didn’t matter what I was “supposed to” – her words – “rules were made to be broken and especially during Covid we shouldn’t have to worry about rules”. Umm…. what???? I was so dumbfounded by her attitude and tone with me, that I just finished up without talking to her again, despite her trying to engage me in a conversation lol. Yeah I was being salty and I don’t care. It’s a tiring job trying to be nice to everyone, especially those who have really weird attitudes about things.

Anyway – just a couple of more weeks of holiday madness – cannot wait for the season to be done and over with!!! I’m already tired of being nice (hahaha). Till next week – be kind to everyone!
