“Maybe it would be enough to merely ask the customer if the flowers had already been paid for”
Sadly one who would steal would also lie.
“What if the customer refuses to produce the receipt. What happens at that point?”
At that point I would call the manager when this customer started ranting and raving I stepped back and allowed him to search for his receipt, it was very disconcerting to see such a prominent person carry on so.
Just this morning a customer showed my coworker a picture of a sales tag on an item that was no longer on sale so he gave her the sales price (.79 off) after she left he went to the shelf to take off the old tag but it was not there she had taken the picture when it was on sale, this was very early in the morning and we were light staffed so he didn’t have anyone to call to check the price like we would usually do, we cannot take a customers word or photo a front end runner would have to go and look at the item on the shelf.
One early morning regular switches labels on meat products putting lower price labels on more expensive cuts of meat, I could go on and on it would be nice if we could live in a society where this kind of chicanery does not exist but until that happens don’t freak out on me for doing my job.February 18, 2019 9:16 pm at 9:16 pm in reply to: Why Do Some Rich People Literally Think They Own The World #1681598
Hold the phone Rebbitzen I accused him of nothing i merely asked to see his receipt if i did not do so the same store manager would hold me responsible for not doing so, if he could not produce the receipt i would have asked him to wait a moment while i contacted the floral dept to confirm he had purchased the item in question.
The truth is he started kvetching before he even started to look for it, I often have to ask for a receipt or look in a shopping bag to confirm something only a small percentage of people CHOOSE to be offended most understand its part of my job and do not object in the least.February 17, 2019 9:56 pm at 9:56 pm in reply to: Why Do Some Rich People Literally Think They Own The World #1681029
Oh i did but when its customers word vs employee’s customer wins every time, he wasn’t so much chastising me but letting me know how i should have handled it, it wasn’t acrimonious, and I didn’t feel bad because I knew I did my job right.February 17, 2019 5:23 pm at 5:23 pm in reply to: Why Do Some Rich People Literally Think They Own The World #1680942
Last week i was working self checkout at the supermarket where I work a customer came to one of the registers scanned two items and paid for them but he did not scan a large bouquet of flowers and they did not have a paid sticker that would indicate they were paid for at the floral dept, I respectfully asked to see his receipt for the flowers he became enraged started yelling that i was harassing him finally he found the receipt and shoved it in my face and i looked at it and said thank you have a good day he grumbled something and stormed out.
A couple days later my store manager pulls me aside and told me i have to be careful how i talk to people he told me the customer complained and that he happens to be a very prominent person. I didn’t argue with him but knew what he was telling me was nonsense asking for the receipt was part of my job and if i hadn’t and he had walked out without paying i would be at fault. As far as his being prominent i have no idea how i would know that and why it would make a difference, I’m sure the store manager would not want me to racially profile customers, or judge them on their clothes the rules are the rules i cannot help if he chose to feel persecuted, that was not my intent and i was professional and respectful throughout.January 27, 2019 7:58 pm at 7:58 pm in reply to: shopping at a new super grocery store vs the corner grocery store. #1669004
Joseph some shtik that customers try to pull us seeing a sale item 3 for $5 but ignoring the must buy 3 in the same ad. Ive had customers buy one box of tissues then question the price when they tell me but its 3 for whatever and i reply yes ma’am but you did not buy 3 which is a prerequisite to get the savings.
Neither, Cigars ahh what a machaya!
Thank you DY and Joseph I am not the prolific poster i once was but i am always reading.
“Maybe every employee should get a tip? Maybe the cashier at a grocery should get ripped as well”
As a cashier sometimes I work the outside register (selling plants,ice,snacks) sometimes someone will give me a tip or when I’m out there and I see someone needing assistance to get their groceries to their car ( not my job but if a cart guy is not around and I see someone elderly or handicapped that needs assistance i help out) sometimes they will give me a buck. Never expected but always appreciated.
First off lets stop calling them free bags the store pays for them, as a cashier a customer will sometimes ask to take an extra bag and that is fine some customers try to take 10 bags as they leave this is not fine, the store expects us to use as few bags as possible and to fill them up. However i often double bag without asking if i feel it is needed, and their are different quality of bags the bag you get in say a dollar store is inferior to the bags we use. I don’t consider myself an environmentalist but plastic bags are awful for the environment, if this causes people to use reusable bags i say it is for the better. The town where i live just enacted a similar law and i know that customers will gripe about it but that is what they do best.
It actually wasn’t the Asbury Park Press this time it was The Coast Star.
“It’s worth noting to all of our posters who drool over any bad publicity for Chassidim: Goyim don’t realize there is a difference between Chassidim and other Chareidim; they use the term to describe everyone with a black hat.”
It’s also worth noting some yidden view all goyim as beer swilling cossacks.
Have you ever frosted a cat?
Joseph I was not aware that one could do teshuva after they are dead.
Per an article i found on google his father was the golf pro at a Jewish country club in Yonkers and he caddied and the golfers took a shine to him and treated him well that was the start.
I don’t know why nitpicker would bump as you can tell from the second post on this thread i broached the topic first.
No. Nor is it ok to ring ding or yankee doodle.
In my experience as a cashier it is my opinion that those who whistle know it is annoying to others and that is why they do it.
I’m not an expert maybe test the door knob for heat and if its very hot don;t open the door?
You are way off ubiq they should know what to do to practice what to do if they are alone in a room, what if g-d forbid they are not trained an open a door they should not and are met by a blast of fire?
He knew he was done before the tweet he had the option to resign and chose not to.
“First of all, I don’t know about the store you work in, but hearing someone say “store” sounds bummy”
I work in a store.
The first non American to be president..
That was just Donald being Donald obviously a joke.
I guess he’s a cross country skier.
Bears seem to like it.
which are we talking about the overweight men or the underweight women?
When you are out of the “norm” you are looked down upon this teaches you humility and you remember that feeling when you reach out to others not in the norm and you are able to have a level footing when approaching them.
I think the advantage to being different in this case is it lets the bochrim feel like outward appearances are not that important and to focus on the inner you so you dont become a gaavanik , in other words when it comes to bettering yourself you only compete with yourself and not try to worry about the joneses and their norms.
It means they allow you freedom to practice your faith.
I could deal with the long wait time if it wasn’t accompanied by rude staff doctors office receptionists are some of the rudest most obnoxious people you will ever have to deal with maybe they think the glass sliding window means that they are the gatekeeper and the patients are the undeserving hordes asking to see the king.
” My husband thinks it’s all nonsense and by him a medical reason for his behavior, I am enabling him and giving him an excuse not to control his aggression”
Please trust your gut instincts and the specialists opinion your husband may be in denial about having a child with issues medical or otherwise.

I would wage a holey war.

Yes one can find immodest clothing out in the street but unlike the gym the person wearing them is not in constant movement and gyrating every which way, I concur with DY.
I am a supermarket cashier when working at the start of the day one of the tasks we do is check all the pinpad’s for skimmers.
Growing up oot we were well aware we were not living in the mecca of American Yiddishkeit and guess what we did not care, we played, learned, and grew up having pride in where we came from because we were raised, taught, and surrounded by good mentchicht people who instilled in us the values that they held dear the same Torahdik values that matter to people in every place that Yidden inhabit in this world. It’s wonderful that you love Lakewood and Brooklyn but not everything has to be a competition or a comparison.
“Who is rich? He who rejoices in his portion.”
“Single girls hair isn’t erva. People know she’s single”
If you can tell who is single on sight than how can you say?
