  1. How about when you go through the fast food drive through, knowing exactly what you want, and the first thing they ask is whether you'd like to try their latest special or new product….. me: "No, i just want 2 shredded chicken burritos and a large Dr. Pepper, thanks!"

  2. Yep. I worked retail and if you didnt say all this , you had a manager right on your butt telling you you HAD to! People don't want to be asked any of this! They don't want to be harassed when they are just trying to shop! They just want to shop, check out, and be left alone! Stores have GOT to start understanding this! Customer get mad at us, not realizing we are being forced to ask this stupid crap. I don't want to be be harassed, why should I do it to them.

  3. Unfortunately these retail workers have no choice but to ask these questions. Their jobs depends on it. If they do not ask then the company will get rid of them and just find someone who will. Sad but true.

  4. Am I the only one who understands the rewards program? 3 dollars spent gets you 5 bonus bucks and you can redeem those for discounts at their Saturday sales. Seems simple to me, and no, I’m not being sarcastic

  5. Unfortunately, if you shop online you are required to give them all that information about you and more. Then they bombard you with e-mail ads, rate your purchase, based on previous purchases/views we thought you might be interested in these items, text messages, etc., etc., etc. Therefore, always bring cash into the store for buying without divulging your grandmother's favorite grade school teacher's maiden name for security purposes.

  6. Welcome To Marshall's. They always asking me if I would like to apply for tjmax rewards I m like this is Marshall's why they wanna give . Tjmax card .after 3 yrs o realized they r the same stores .and they asking me exactly the same things .πŸ™„πŸ™„

  7. You-all are just so funny! Sad face Skippy. Ha That's what my kids look like if I take their phone away.

  8. Born and raised in La. Im Very insulated by this video if it wasn't so damn TRUE!! THIS LADY is how I'm starting to feel every time I go into the store. Ibet that is his dog by the way he looked with guilty face. Oh yeah hiw many trees does it take for resist (it should be used on store card saved it the program wanted your service of coming back. Get this why do I got to show ID just to get a damn money order that I give store cash for does that make you think? ?

  9. I once went to Nespresso and they told me they get in trouble if they don’t give customers a bag. Then they had to go out the back to get change when I wanted to pay cash.

  10. Just let me get to fook outta here! PAAAALEEEEESE!

    In Retail… THEY MAKE YOU DO THIS SHIT.
    ANNOYING. Retailers need to hijack a bunch of Parrots. Associates hate this shit.

    BTW… Corporations are manipulating Customers Surveys by coercing Employees' to counter balance the real numbers.

    In RETAIL… as a customer – You must understand that a retail employee works much harder than you and has to take a TON OF CRAP because you trash the store and make retarded demands.

    NO JOB IS MORE DEMANDING THAN DEALING WITH A THOUSAND CUSTOMERS A DAY WITH A MEAN IQ DECLINING 7 POINTS PER GENERATION.

    The Customer is ALWAYS a Retard.

    EDIT:
    The customer is always a Retard and at least 200lbs. Overweight.

  11. Please!!!
    Let me enter a store without a parrot barking… "Welcome….."

    PLEASE.

    I've stopped shopping stores that will not leave me the fook alone.

    STOP GREETING ME. I WANT TO KILL YOU . STOP!

    Please stop.

    When will Corporations understand that we get PANDERING? WHEN.

    STOPPPPPP!

  12. 15 feet of receipt paper.
    Are you a Veteran?
    You wanna fill out our totally bogus survey… and receive a ridiculous pile of Spam EVERYDAY?
    Can I please wait while you back up the line (only employee at the store) 20 Deep while you hunt for 14 Cents.

    OH, YEAH… Please write a check. Who writes checks? Back my line up another 20 Deep.

    Yeah BABY… You forget your purse (at least you were not stealing). I'll be happy for you to take a leisurely walk to your 1990 Honda Civic for your wallet.

    Back up my line another 10.

    Yes Mamn… You have 30 Coupons compounded with online coupons… and you don't want to pay more than a penny for closed-out items. I'll be happy to Price Check each and every item… and pleased as punch to repair all the damage you did to my store while rooting like a pig for truffles. Nevermid your 6 kids. 45 minutes.

    YES! Please use at least 3 different payment methods for your toilet paper, Gummy Bears and Pregnancy Test.

    YES! WE LOVE a $6.26 bill payed in pennies and nickels! The stickier the change is… the better! I love change peeled of the floor of a 1980 Honda Civic. I imagine whatever happened to it in 40 years.

    ABSOLUTELY! I'll be more than happy to leave my checkout position (nobody else in the store) because your cat will only eat Friskies Salmon Pate. I'll be right back after hunting through 2000 cases in the backroom.

    You ARE the only person in the world that will buy a can of Sperm Flavored Spam. But, I'll be sure to pull my favors with corporate… and have stocked next week.

    OKAY! Please hand me your shopping list!
    I'll be MORE THAN HAPPY to shop for you for an hour while my life is becoming a living Hell because I have no time to actually produce!

    I'm fooking sorry!
    We don't have your 100% Wheat Whatever everytime you come. We sell 2 a week. We ask for 3. But… Nobody cares! (The Vendor "stales" 2.

    Please leave your cart in the parking lot… creating opportunity for those that run their cars into them a chance for me to waste 6 hours filling out complaint forms.
    Please complain when you have no shopping cart… because I cannot retrieve (only employee there). They are where customers left them.. Allover the parking lot.

    BY ALL MEANS… Kick the front door. Bang on the front door… shout, scream.. write nasty letters to Corporate because…
    … I don't open the store before the time posted on the door. 8am. I have stuff to do while you are sitting in the parking lot at 7:15am. Happens more than you might think.

    Customer says, "YOU BETTER (Make Me Happy) DO WHAT I SAY… OR I'LL TELL ON YOU!"

    On and On.

    Retail is working with a dysfunctional pile of snowflake entitlement.

    Fortunately… there are still some people around that understand ethics, morality, and integrity.

    Later. Pardon my venting.

  13. We have all been there, shopping on line so easy. That's why malls are failing and brick and mortar stores shutting their doors. They should all be putting their merchandise online

  14. Just today they had finally convinced me to apply for a credit card. They lost me at what's your ssn. How can they possibly ask for it just like that?

  15. πŸŽ†πŸ’₯ STANDING OVATION πŸ’₯πŸŽ†πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ’―πŸ™‹β€β™€οΈ πŸ’―πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸ’Ό πŸ’―πŸ™‹πŸΎβ€β™‚οΈ

  16. I worked in retail. The managers were always pushing us to offer store credit cards, and you could tell that the customers were getting pissed off because they just wanted to get their stuff and get out of there.

  17. If you happen to be like me, five foot one inches tall wheelchair user, the item you're trying to purchase is always on the top shelf and the clerk is nowhere in sight. If you happen to see another customer and ask them to reach something for you, their response is usually " I don't work here". Common decency and manners have become extinct in our current sjw world.

  18. This happened to me today πŸ˜‚…in Kroger checkout, β€œ do you wanna donate to back to school fund”…’uhhh, yeah’…and the cashier said, β€œthe little ones thank you”…Louisiana 🀣

  19. True but people seem to forget they get every second of info off of you when you buy online. Name adress, email, phone number and zipcode, and most people look online for 10% off anyways. Oh and don't forget the constant emails on deals and surveys from the email address you have them so you could get notifications on when your packages arrive.

  20. I remember telling myself, β€œyou are a veteran, going to school using your GI Bill, the family is thisclose to qualifying for food stamps – WE need assistance, so no thank you…”

    Shout-out to the commissary and PX for accepting so many coupons!

  21. I get past that by speaking really bad Russian. I get looks but no hassle until I need something and then I have to speak my native tongue, Inglish.

  22. I used to work in retail and trust me, it's annoying to us that we have to push all this stuff at check out. We were expected to get 99% phone number and email capture or we would get in trouble as if it's our fault people don't want to be bombarded with ads. Also we could be fired if we didn't sale enough credit cards and they coached us to be really aggressive about it. I'll never go back to that.

  23. This isn’t why people shop online at all. They are just too lazy to drive around all over looking for the item when they can find it in seconds and have it ordered quicker.

  24. Credit cards being pushed is my only issue really asa retail worker. Pushing unwanted things on customers is what drives them away. Not drive sales. I never have an issue with a rewards card cause it takes minimal information and only gives things to a customer. As a customer I always sign up for rewards

  25. I know this over the top for comedic effect, but not far off. When they ask me all those questions I say I'm homeless.

  26. this is the point when I leave the merchandise on the checkout counter, and walk off.
    And to hell with online shopping also, the few times I've tried it I've ended up with wrong size, wrong item, or 3wk delivery on an overnight ship.
    I don't have time for that either.

  27. Yes omg I hate it when they do this. I just want to pay my money. Went to a book store and refused to give them my email and sign up for their mailing list and she said I guess you DONT like saving money………. I was like I do …. but I come in to buy a book maybe once every 2 yrs… and there is no point in signing up for all this junk now I won't be back at all…buh bye…
