TTOG: I'm sure you're not a Starbucks regular because you kept asking us how *fresh* our pastries & sandwiches were.
When told about the thawing/warming process, you waved your hands around like you were doing a 'jazz hands' sequence.
You insisted that *REAL* Starbucks served FRESH pastries & sandwiches EVERY DAY before turning around & walking out doing the hand-shaky thing while muttering "No no no no no...."

TTOG looking for hand wipes in the wrong aisle:
Guest: Someone told me hand sanitizing wipes are down this aisle.
Me, in the aisle where hand sanitizer is, thinking he probably asked where the sanitizer is: No, it's a couple aisles over.
I walk over that way, pick one up off the shelf: Is this what you're looking for?
Guest: Yes, but I don't want the one you touched.
Me: Well, someone took it out of the box to put it in the shelf. (In my head, I'm thinking, "Whatever, dude. Do you think it just sort of plopped here out of the ceiling? Pretty sure my team mate's hands aren't any cleaner than mine after opening however many cases.") And I just walk away, not able to take that much stupidity at the end of my shift.

Honestly, the time of covid is the time of stupid, in so many ways.
And I'm so glad for this web site where I can vent stuff like this and y'all understand what I'm talkin' about!

Today: *light flashes*

Me: What can I do for ya?
Person: I dunno why it says I need you.
Me: Um, OK, well let's find out.
*item flags as street-dated*
Me: I'm very sorry, but unfortunately I can't sell this item until 7/25 ma'am I---
Person: What? Why?
Me: Because it's a street-dated item and I can't sell it until the date that's in our system.
Person: Wait, so you have stuff on the floor that's not for sale? But why would you do that? That's beyond odd...
Me: Sometimes it happens. I don't know how it happened, but it shouldn't have been on the floor...
Person: Well, that's odd. I just don't get why you would put it out if it's not for sale. Especially if there's a whole display of said item.
Me: I'll let someone know right away so it gets taken down.
Person: OK, well, but it's just dumb and really odd...🙄

😐😐😐 Trust me lady, if I could sell it, I would, but I also value my job. I don't make the rules, I just follow them.

TTODick: You were getting your coffee & ordered two grande refreshers for your small kids (~6 & 8).
I mentioned the amount of caffeine in the drinks but you snickered & said 'Yeah, well, they're fixing to go back to their mom so....not my problem.'
You are an absolute prick.

Meh. Caffeine calms kids down. Mom is better off because of his prank.

TTOG: You didn't want the lamp because there was the *tiniest* speck of dirt, one you couldn't even see unless you looked incredibly close--on it? I mean if it was like dime-sized or bigger, I'd understand but a tiny dot? If it'd been me, I'd buy it and use a Magic Eraser on it.

People and their pettiness...ugh.

Oh but I’m sure if you had offered a discount they would’ve not noticed it at all 🙄 I hate guests like that

Guy assembled a bookshelf (espresso finish) & brought it back because there was a small spot near the back where the chip board was showing.
I touched it up with a sharpie, we put it in furniture & it sold within the day with only a 10% discount (the last sale price).

if I was that cashier I would have refused to ring them up, disgusting
Same. I think i would’ve called AP too. That symbol stands for the death of innocent people for no reason other than being in a certain category/group of people. That’s unacceptable to display in a public setting, regardless of one’s private beliefs.

Not just religion. Many more millions were killed for reasons other than religion. Romany, gay, disabled, a couple other defined categories.
Communists. Socialists. Anarchists. My people. Fuck Nazis.
Millions of Poles were also executed.
Y’all are very right— more than just religion. I’ve edited my post. Regardless, my point about it being unacceptable to display in public for a variety of reasons stands.
