    Had to do my first alcohol reful last night. Can't say I enjoyed it. >.< There were three guys buying beer, they looked anywhere between twenty and twenty five, I had such a hard time wondering whether to ID them or not but I thought I might as well, I had no idea how old they were and we do operate think 25...so I asked them all for ID but one of them didn't have any and I had to refuse. It just felt so silly because I was sure that they were all over 18 but I still couldn't sell it to them, and they looked very unimpressed and walked off, I asked if they just wanted the chewing gum they were buying with it and they were like nah, and just left. They weren't very rude, they kind of scoffed a bit, and I'm glad they didn't get angry or anything because there wasn't a supervisor in sight. I just feel really awkward and stupid about it. >.<

    I remember my first alcohol refusal. It was a funny one - which I posted in the old thread - a polish woman was refused alcohol so staarted rolling around the floor like a 3 year old brat.

    My first refusal took it very well and sympathised with me (!) as he worked in Debenhams and understood the fustration that people receive.

    Sometimes I'm all ready for the refusal and the kick off because not all of them have ID, but sometimes some certain supervisers look at them and they're like... "It's fine sell it" I'm just stood there thinking... well now I feel stupid 'cos my judgement has been overturned lol

    Grr.

    To all the general assistants out there, don't you just hate those fancy boxes everything seems to come in these days. I'm longing for the days where everything came in the simple standard box which you knew how to open, rip apart and get things out of.

    Now everything seems to come in these fancy boxes with printed instructions on the side of how to open it you must lift flap #1 and #2 then pull #3 and tear at #4. :rolleyes: And if in a moment of panic, distress and impatientness you just attempt to tear the box apart you end up just fighting with a sturdy piece of cardboard that is resisting your force and disobeying your instructions.

    Today I ended up fighting with a box of Philadelphia Light and ended up with low-fat cream cheese all over my left trouser leg. :o:

    Thankfully my store has a policy that the supervisors and managers will back up the cashier's decision - even if they believe it to be wrong. They might say something off the shop floor later but, whilst on the floor, they pretty much do what we say.

    I think it's that time though isn't it..

    Loads of people are leaving to concentrate on their A Levels, others are leaving to embark upon their Degrees, others are leaving having completed/nearing their degrees and are pursuing their careers.

    those boxes are really handy for stock rotation though, when i can't be bothered i just rip the box up like usual and use the one on the shelf, but on GM i just get plain boring brown boxes and soooooooo much plastic bags wrapping each utensil in the box.
    best box award goes to the rice kripsy bars box, pull the tab the rip around the box and then it splits into 2 box trays. it's all :woo:
