I'm back again, today hasn't been too bad. Besides the odd customer saying how hot and nice it is outside. I noticed how annoying customers can be to each other though. At the tills there is just enough room to get by with a trolley past someone standing at a till, yet those standing at the till pay no attention to this. Just leave their own trolley in the middle behind them so no one else can get past, and then give people dirty looks when they push their trolley out the way to get past. Then there's those that just walk off and leave the trolley, it really isn't that difficult to push it that little bit further back out into the foyer. And baskets. They just seem to get left everywhere in the store. Empty or full. Especially annoying at the tills, again, not a huge amount of space, do you see a pile of baskets on the floor? No. Pass it over to me, is it that difficult? Or they'll do quite the opposite, I'll have a bag ready to start packing into, and they just dump the basket on top of the bag. Or unload their trolley all the way across the top. I do need some space to pack.
Just remembered some guy the other day. I packed about 5 bags of his shopping, then he tells me he doesn't want the hangers. So I say 'right shall I just take the rest off then?' 'Yeh'. So I continue taking the rest of the hangers off as I pack, him just standing there watching. Then we come to the end, I pass the bags over to him. 'So are you going to take those ones off for me?' And continued watching as I unpack the rest of the bags, looking impatient. This made me make a point of taking my time. I couldn't help but say something as I handed the last bag over: 'You know you wouldn't be standing there waiting if you had asked at the beginning or even maybe helped'. All I got was dirty look as he walked away.
another thing is the looks you get off the people waiting in the cue, its like they want to murder you epsecially when you wlk off to get a matalan number from the computer.
there are lots of times when problems happen, never a transaction goes by where something goes wrong, they are running the tills and everything into the ground. I dont know when theyre gunna replace the stuff.
we have a prblem with the air con, today was one of the hottest days ever and it would be twice as hot inside the store, good job I wasnt working there today at matalan...
