    Yeah apparently you'll need a GBC emulator. Search 'GBCoid'.

    Someone greeted me at the till today by my name and in my head I was thinking "Do I know you?!" Then I remembered I wear a name badge.

    Hey.

    Haha I get that sometimes too, but I realise how they know my name, as they make it obvious to see my name badge, or say what is your name or something. I sometimes find it nice, but sometimes creepy, depending on who it is. They do it when they want to haggle. Haggle in a department store. :facepalm:

    That used to happen all the time, I never minded if it was a simple "Hello, Lella. " But when it was a "Hello, Lella :sexface:" I began to worry. :afraid:

    I thought it was like someone's husband and he didn't make it obvvous so at first I thought it might be one of the managers or a lecturer. :mmm:

    Haggling's kind of pathetic in a shop and people who want to save even more on a dress when it's already like 5 quid- :lolwut: so swear everyone tries to bring in old stock they already own and try to exchange it for something else. :facepalm2: Today was quite a nice, calm 4 hour shift though. I just have three more left. :bigsmile: I found out today that my line manager has been working in our shop for 25 years since she was 16. :indiff:

    I frequently swapped badges with my co-workers to avoid things like that happening. :mmm:

    Yeah, they get on my nerves. I mean, there's saving money, and there's being a cheapskate. If it's too much, don't buy it. I'm under strict instruction to say no to any discounts other than those that are meant to be there. :yep: There is some stock that has a discount, then a further discount, and customers want more, or even some free items with it. :mad:

    That's the biggest insult anyone's ever given me. :emo:

    I'd rather be stuck in some dead end office job than in retail tbh.

    We only can if it's like damaged but even then we have to ring our line manager. :yep: And people whining cause they found something in the sale rack but it's not on sale. IT WILL HAVE A BLOODY LABEL ON IT SAYING MONEY OFF. People put things back in places they're not mean tto be. If you're not sure, just ask for a price check.
