TTCoupleOfPossiblyWastedAngryLadies: I don't think I've ever heard that many F-Bombs in a single sentence lol. Yes, we sell liquor and yes we close at 10 because that's *the law*. Sure, be pissed at the store, we don't care because we're only doing our jobs and following said laws.

Also, if you try jamming your money in the slot without tapping the screen, you're not going to get very far.

Stay classy

To the one guest: Don't get mad at me that you tried using obviously fake $100 bills to pay for your items. I don't really care that you were in a rush to leave, I can't accept them if they are so blatantly fake. I was nice in that I took you because you only had two items even though I was about to go on break and my light was closed. I didn't know that taking your transaction would lead to such a difficult situation.

On that note, what is AP supposed to do when guests attempt to use fake bills? Do they confiscate the bills and are they supposed to apprehend? The reason I ask is because the guest in question yesterday left without being apprehended after AP confirmed that the bills were counterfeit.

Edit: Anyone else's store no longer have those machines to check if bills are counterfeit? Apparently, our store's leadership took them away because they sometimes showed real bills to be counterfeit, which caused unwanted confusion.

We still have ours, although 3/4 of them are broken, and we pretty much ignore them because of the false positives.

You have three tiers to spare to sit around for however many hours or days until those guests show up? Lucky....
Our DTL has barked that three tiers are for RESHOP ONLY, NO OTHER PURPOSE!!!! Not pulls, not OPU, not SFS, not anything but reshop. So we have 30 of these things now full of softlines reshop and six others for the rest of the reshop. And she has flipped the bitch switch on a TM when they were using one for a pull.

LOLwut?

OPU & SFS have their own carts, but where do you put pulls? U boats are on the line and/or reserved for freight. Flats are at a premium and tubs are gone. What does that leave? Guest carts? My STL won't let us use guest carts for tasks at all, despite them being by far the best size & shape for cardboard (aside from the cages, obvs, but only grocery gets those).

Im sorry you cannot speak clearly. When the rain started pouring down, you said, "Where is flash water?" I had no clue what you were talking about until you slowed down and said it in a reasonable way "fly swatter". You then began berating me. You blamed your inability to speak clearly on my generation. I then told you I do not prefer to be belittled while I am performing my job. You said you weren't. You know you are a fucking liar. You could have just spoken clearly. Has nothing to do with me being 30. You just can't enunciate like a good human.

To that one guest. Yes, I know there is something on my face. It requires a plastic surgeon to remove, and as long as it isn't cancerous, it isn't covered by my insurance. That is why it is still there. Thank you.

"figure it out" is what they are told so all these vehicles sit idle cause she will flip the bitch switch and berate anyone using them for anything but.

Our SFS captain (ahoy, matey!) finally decided that it would be easier to convert two SFS carts to OPU ones since we have a million of those. Our three tiers for OPU were marked but I could see the confusion. I like the SFS carts better because they hold larger objects better than the three tiers did. (Helloooooooo, paper towels anyone?)

I swear, I will quit tomorrow if our three tiers are taken away entirely though. (Psssst...we still have tubs...don't tell...)

TTOG: Yes, I will scold your children for running through grocery and remind them in my best teacher voice to walk. We have a million vehicles going in and out, plus guest traffic, so it's for their safety. No need to glare at me. We are not a playground.

Save your breath. Demonspawn don't give a crap about hurting others by running into them. I saw a couple of the little darlings running through a grocery store two days ago with little training carts at full speed, racing each other, back and forth through the main aisle. I yelled at one "Y'all are going to hurt someone!" and the brat didn't have the decency to slow down for a couple of steps.

Ha yeah. I had a preteen once crash into my SFS cart when I was in middle and I didn't say anything. Kid kept running, but then her mom yelled at her and told her to apologize to me. I guess I was trying to keep these two from running into my full milk flat last night. Oh well.

Sad but true. Wait until one of the little angels gets hurt, and mom Karen shows up to pitch a hissy fit with her lawyer on speed dial...

Video comes in handy. I had a little one run headfirst into a parked tub of mine. Kid bounced off a like a rubber ball. I didn't see it, just heard the crash of this kid hitting the tub full blast. Blood and screaming. Fire dept came. Karen freaking out. The video shut her down fast.. Cause Karen you took your kid out of the cart and did nothing when the brat took off like a train.

I saw the video. I was able to laugh my ass off in the AP office.. Yes my heart is black sometimes.

TTOG: Chill out. Why were you screaming profanities at another guest near the entrance of the store? You're lucky that AP didn't apprehend you for your behavior. I don't care what you were upset about, there was no reason for what happened.

TTOG - I totally understand “day drinking” - we have all had days like that. But at 8:30 in the morning? And maybe you should consider purchasing that wine before opening it up and chugging half of it down? So glad ap was working an early shift so you could be escorted out.

Oh lordy. And maybe they're a third-shifter and coming off work for the night, so their 8:30 am is like 6 pm for most people.

It doesn't matter. You don't go shopping for booze when you are already drunk, and you don't drink the booze you are buying before you've actually bought it.

I missed the former and totally agree on the latter. Well, I agree with the former as well.

Now, since she was clearly already intoxicated,..... if AP wasn't there, what would you have done?

TTOG: You are my kind of guy. You suggested blaring alarms and flashing lights when someone dumps strays or Starbucks cups anywhere on the sales floor., and then followed up with the idea of a steel cage coming down to isolate them when I suggested that they wouldn't realize it was for them. Now.... how do we make this actually happen? LOL

Someone's gotta teach them, obviously their parents aren't.
