Since we were having so much fun with this on the Retail thread, I thought it merited its own thread:

Schedules post today;
briefly, hope springs eternal;
closing weekend...damn!

Helping a guest, then a rude guest while the original guest. Then their question from rude guest. Still help original guest who is in disbelief about other guest. I say it happens alot, I would say "one moment, please" once or twice. deaf ears by 2nd guest, then I say, what do you need? The 2nd guest says it & ok. 1st guest, I say, their manners are bad. Sorry for the delay & thank you for patience.

Calling the help desk;
Target India makes me
want to kill myself.
LOVE it. i called three weeks ago, they finally called back. they couldnt pronounce my name, so they called, waited for the operator and said "DOOOOUUUUU". kind of like a zombie. if a zombie worked at a call center. never "hi" "may i speak to". took us four times to figure out who and what it was. i finally gave up after spending 20 minutes telling them everything was fine. but then a different one called back every day for almost a week. i told the etlge to tell them i was fired.

After calling in a printer that was constantly jamming, tech support called the next day to confirm that "it makes the noise when the printing comes out". Reminds me of the short-lived series "B-team".

This one has two versions. First, the guest version:

My question to you:
If you hate it here so much
Why do you shop here?!

Now, the team member version:

My question to you:
If you hate it here so much
Why'd you apply here?!

Congratulations! You GOT a nickel!!! That works out to a little more than $100 per year if you work 40 hours per week. It could possibly cover the increase in gasoline costs....or not. lol
I'm a cashier. I don't get 40 hours per week. I'm lucky if I get 20. Maybe it'll be enough to cover my parents' Christmas presents?

Spot cares about your health?
Why don't they don't offer any
real health insurance?
