Today's annoyance

A couple of weeks ago I signed up for a Meijer cc.  You get 10% off the first purchase so I was saving that bad boy.  Tuesday I went in to buy my groceries, a couple of random items, and some stock up items.  The cashier was slow as molasses.  Then I hand her the 10% and she asks what it is.  I tell her and she continues the check out.  I'm looking at the reciept and questioning the 10% which she swears came off.  Finally she tells me to go to customer service.

CS verifies she is new and screwed up.  To get the 10% they need to return everything then rescan it.  PITA, but you know how I am with my grocery budget.  Then they gave me a $5 gc for my troubles.

Today I go back for some odds and ends.  I scan to make sure I don't get the same cashier.  She's nowhere to be seen and the one I pick is cruisning along.  She rings up 2 of my items and someone comes to give her a break.  Guess who?

She's slow again and I notice that my cucumber has rung up as a red onion.  She tries to say it's okay.  No, a cucumber is 50 cents a red onion $1.01.  "I rang in the number on it."  LADY YOU ARE HOLDING A CUCUMBER IN YOUR HAND.  IT LOOKS NOTHING LIKE A RED ONION!

Then she has issues ringing out the $5 gc.  She asks if it has a different amount on it "No.  It's the $5 gift card they gave me because YOU screwed up my order 3 days ago." Yes, I did say that.

    Meijer cashiers are either wonderful or complete twits.

    I only avoid the creepy pedo-looking dude at mine.

    The return in order to rescan would make me stabby.

    OMG OMG OMG, there's a cashier like that at my Meijer.  I will avoid her line at all costs.  

    I've had her screw up formula checks at least two times.  (So glad we're done with formula!) And my entire order had to be rerung both times.

    There's one I hate at Target. She doesn't screw it up, but the small talk with her is just. so. annoying.

    Yet somehow I always end up in her line. Maybe that means she's fast because her line always looks shortest?  IDK. Usually when I remember to look at the cashier to avoid her, the other lines are too long for it to be worth using them instead.


    I hope you don't get a bad reputation around Meijer, 6. :)

    H usually does the grocery shopping and has a "blacklist" of Meijer clerks. He gives them 2 chances before they make the list, it's actually a rather Rain Manlike system. He is so fun in every single aspect, almost exhaustingly so; grocery shopping is a no joke zone.

    s/o small talk... Sunday morning I had to pick up a cake from the Kroger bakery.  Our church was doing a little reception after church congratulating the choir director on finishing his PhD.  They couldn't ring me out at the bakery counter so I had to go through a regular line.  The checker read the cake aloud "Congratulations...Dr. Brown."  Then she looked at me with a puzzled face and said "I don't know Dr. Brown"  as if this was a problem.  I mean, how can there be a cake going out the door for somene she doesn't know!?!?

    Oh 6, I can only imagine the annoyance.

    This is like the check-out clerk I had who:

    1.  Didn't know what asparagus was.
    2.  Didn't know what eggplant was
    3.  Rang up our cabbage as iceberg lettuce.  I didn't bother to correct him on that one, I didn't care anymore.

    i would be annoyed about this, and i'd probably complain.


    i know this is really rude of me to say, but FFS is being a cashier really that complicated? even seasoned cashiers have their issues and i just do NOT understand.

    I was a grocery cashier in high school and really liked it.  I liked being nosey about what people were buying.  But I made some dumb mistakes, I'm sure.  People would confuse me by handing me handfuls of change after I had already  opened the drawer and my little brain exploded.  Or the time someone asked me where to find kitchen bouquet and I pointed to the flowers.  And I think I've told the bacon powder story before.

    Y'know, this is one thing I've noticed about the cashiers at our locally owned grocery store.  NON of them ever have one freaking issue.  They know all their numbers, they know what all the produce is and they're all fast.  I have no idea what magic they practice there, but their customer service is outstanding.

    Also zsa, I do not know the bacon powder story or what kitchen bouquet is.

    i just get frustrated because we use a grocery store that allows us to walk the store scanning our own items with a handheld scanner, bagging them as we go along, and then we use the self-checkout with coupons and giftcards and never have an issue. and i don't work for the store nor was i ever a cashier, and i figured out how to enter the produce code at the self checkout for the correct items i happen to be holding. it's not rocket surgery.

    Varuna - I'm still not sure WHAT kitchen bouquet is, but it is with the spices and seasonings:
     Kitchen Bouquet Browning & Seasoning Sauce
    Bacon powder story:  Guy asked me where to find bacon powder.  I thought for a long time and then told him that I had never seen bacon powder in the store, but what did he need it for because maybe he could just grind up some bacon bits (keep in mind I was 17) and then pointed him to the salad dressing aisle. 

    He looked at me very puzzled and said, "Ummmm, why don't you just tell me where the flour and the sugar is because I'm sure bakin' powder is with the other bakin' stuff."

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE the bacon powder story.  I use kitchen bouquet in things like stew, beef tips, and meatloaf.
  • Options
    OMG, the bacon powder story has got to be one of the best stories ever.  I busted up laughing in my office.

    I'm going to look for kitchen bouquet.  Is it liquid or dry?  Is it like Liquid Smoke?

    man, I hope you've got the Platinum CC - it's freakin' AWESOME when I earn the 20% off coupon and then buy 4 months worth of groceries and save like $200.

    That chick must have been like SUPER new if she didn't understand how to properly scan a coupon or enter the correct produce code. I've never had an issue redeeming the Meijer CC coupons with any cashier.

    V- It's liquid.  I sort of just use it whenever I use worchestershire.  It's a very concentrated liquid spice.
