So this regular customer came in to work tonight and I did my best to avoid him. He is one of those customers who asks a LOT of questions, and I am certain most of them are just to be annoying, or just to waste our time. Because there is no way someone can be this stupid. I accidentally ended up in the aisle he was shopping in and I said hi, and asked if he needed help. He said he was just looking at what to get before his coupon expired. I said ok, and walked on by. Before I could get out of the aisle, he asks about prices on calenders. ALL of the ones where he was looking had prices. So I walked closer, looked at what was in his hand, and told him the price. He started talking about sales, etc. I told him these rarely go on sale, and they were new, etc. He said ok. I thought I was done. But no. He finds me another time while I am trying to help someone else. “My son needs a 5 subject binder… where is that?” I said, “a notebook or a binder?” (EVERYONE confuses these things). He just stared blankly at me. So I tell him the difference between the two. “Can you show me? You know I don’t know about this stuff.” So I said, “I can, once I am done here helping this customer.” Ugh. I really didn’t want to, but I went and found him after I was done, and had to describe the differences between two notebooks. THEY WERE OBVIOUIS. But he decides to point out one difference, while I am in mid sentence, showing him one of the other differences. I know he is doing it on purpose. I really dislike this guy. I get away again, and he says, “where will you be if I need you again?” I just looked at him silent for a second and said “I can’t answer that, it just depends on what I am working on… I could be anywhere in the store….” And then I keep on walking. Look dude, I have got better things to do then stand there and wait around for if you have another dumbass question, if you really need me, you can look for me, or ask someone to get me.
The worst part is, this is BEFORE he tries to get a discount on paper towels because the plastic packaging is torn. I explained we can only discount items, if the PRODUCT is damaged. He won’t let it go. He wants another opinion, which obviously is the same. He goes to her, and goes over all the same crap again. And then points out there is a speck of dirt on one of the rolls of paper towels. I just looked at him and said, “They are PAPER TOWELS, its not like its a desk, or a phone.” Sheesh dude, if you want to look for special deals thats fine, but don’t try to play games with me just to save a few pennies. When he was finally done, he spent a total of about ONE dollar after his coupons.
I am happy to have TV back. It was a nice break without it, but it helps with the boredom. So thank you, for Comedy Central, USA, Food Network, Animal Planet, and AMC (Just to name a few…) BUT, why you ditch EPSN?? How is a girl supposed to watch baseball? You also ditched Comcast Sportsnet. What?? You are COMCAST, and its called Comcast Sportsnet. I am confused.
