    Everybody has their "after" snack.
    Salty (and in a can so you don't get crumbs all over the bed) might just be theirs.

    SO glad that is over with.
    Had girls hanging around wheedling for us to start early.
    Then they wanted to take 'extras for friends' but we all said no.
    Then they tried to come back later for 'seconds' & we told them no.
    Freakin' freeloaders.

    Sorry to hear that. We were busy, but everybody was nice about it.

    We were busy, too, which is what made it all the more annoying when everyone else followed the guidelines.

    TTOG- I was running self-checkout when you came up to me and asked if cashiers no longer bag items for you. When I answered they are definitely supposed to, you went on a 5 minute rant about how your cashier didn't bag anything and you had to do it all yourself *gasp* not sure what you wanted me to do about it, everything was already bagged and my nametag literally says new team member so it's not like I can get him in trouble or anything :rolleyes:

    Bless your soul and your patience. You and your mom came in for a camera and she got the debit RedCard for the 5% and the app went through ok etc etc

    But when it came time to ring up the camera, the card wouldn't go through. You called your bank and apparently it was an error on our end because the bank never received the request. Thinking about it now, your mom probably gave a check from a different account or something that didn't have the 600 for the camera. So your mom already started getting a little testy, but you assured me everything was fine and you understood shit happens as a fellow retail employee. So I ask the LOD if I can manually give the 5% and she's like yeah ofc. So they pay in cash... and the register dies. At this point your mom is kinda done and walks away but you remained so pleasant and I felt so so bad about all this. Luckily it was a simple fix and we just moved registers and the rest of the transaction went ok since it was cash (I still had in my hand) and not card.

    So seriously thanks for your patience and sweetness because your mom was seriously starting to flare up my anxiety.

    Target's system doesn't check for available funds. They assume you have it and draft an electronic check 3 business days later.

    I did have a very embarrassing incident one time when I had switched the account my red card drafted from. While corporate had the banking information they were telling the store that there was no bank account attached to the card so it declined at the register. So yeah, Target can screw up when it comes to attaching banking information to the debit version.

    A lady started getting major contractions while checking her out and had to be rushed out via ambulance, her boyfriend called us to let her know she gave birth to a baby girl.

    Nice.

    TTOG: You picked up aluminum foil that was on sale on one of the end caps by the check lanes. The sign said 1.19 but it rang up around 4 dollars. A line was forming behind me and I didn't have time to watch the monitor and double check every price and I didn't notice the price difference, but you clearly did, but you didn't say anything until the transaction went through. I would have happily changed the price for you if you said something before I finalized the transaction, but again, you didn't say anything until AFTER the transaction. As I am just a cashier, I cannot refund you the difference, so I directed you to guest services to get a refund. For some reason you didn't like that solution, so instead of easily walking the 10 feet to guest services, you just walked out. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    TTOG - when you were staring at me the entire time I was ringing you up I just thought you were weird but when you walked away and then came back and said " I just have to tell you you have a beautiful smile" it made my entire day

    TTOG: Oh honey, I'm glad that you were brought up properly by your parents and you are a very sweet and polite pre-teen, but a broken hanger really isn't a big deal. You didn't have to apologize 3 times for breaking it.

    TTOotherG: Wow, you are certainly a good example to your kid, not. Between you two you had 15 dresses and just because I walked away to make sure the zone was as good as possible for the next shift, that doesn't give you license to leave every single one of them in the fitting room. First, you could have brought them all out, showing your kid appropriate behavior. Second, if you weren't planning on buying anything why did you try on 15 dresses?

    TTOthirdG: You knock two shirts down and two feet from me you pick them up in a way that makes a ball and you drop them on the stack, instead of either handing them over to me or trying to fold them? Were you raised in a barn?

    TTOG: Yes. Currently I am working at target for a summer job while I am home from college. However, not every cashier around my age is attending college. For them, cashiering at target is their career, and I don't think they would be too happy with you assuming everyone under 20 and not in high school can afford to go to college for 20k a year (and I go to a fairly cheap university). Attending college was not something you can do for ~$600 a year like you did in 1960.

    If you do the debit card and the large dollar amount in the same transaction, it will go through with no problem.

    Ttog-

    I get it, buying school supplies sucks. I know your childs school did not provide us with a list. When I gave you options such as printing it online or ask the school for a copy; you just said you would just buy your kid the same supplies as another school. I tried to explain that not all schools ask for the same stuff. You didn't want to hear anything I had to say. You just said you would buy it later. Nothing disappointments a kid when you go over to the new school supplies and then leave saying "you ain't got time for that". o_O

    TTOG - I feel sorry for how stressed you must be to snap at me like this when I wasn't even talking to you?? I asked the woman in front of you if she wanted a bag at all and you said "um excuse me she carried those 3 items around the store I think she is perfectly capable of carrying those herself, Jesus Christ" in a nasty tone. Like who asked you?? Mind your business?? I wasn't insulting her I just can't read her mind so I don't know if she wanted a bag or not?? Oh my goodness lol I didn't say a single word to you or even look at you during your transaction because I couldn't stop thinking about how much of a c--- you were lmao

    At my store that would have gotten an immediate call to GSTL.

    To be fair, I know it's 100000000000000x easier to type that then to actually call the GSTL over IRL.

    In actual real life I probably would have said in a super perky tone "sorry! I was just wondering if SHE wanted a bag" Then let the GSTL know after.

    What's funny is that the guest who I was actually talking to answered yes to a bag and THEN the woman said that lol
