Ramblings of a Cashier

So I have been working at the 1780 for a little over three weeks now and here area few observations/comments that I have made.


Reading is important ~ If the sign on the door says “Shoes and Shirt required” then put on fucking shoes and a shirt. No one wants to see your hairy fat ass barefoot in the store. It is nasty and unsanitary.


Mullets went out with the 80’s ~ Every time I see someone with one I want to jump across the counter with the scissors and cut it off. They are ugly and you should be ashamed of having it.


Brush your damn teeth ~ Dear lord. The amount of people that have come in to the store and are missing teethe is appalling. I can understand if you lost your teeth in an accident fine but they make false teeth. WEAR THEM!!! But the people who have lost them because they do not brush their teeth. EWW!!!


Stop drinking you Alchie ~ Dear lord if you are buying beer at 5:45 in the morning you need to be shot. Get in a program and stop buying booze that early in the morning


Wet Money ~ If you are paying my and your money is damp. I have the right to punch you in the face. There is no reason why your money should be wet. It is disgusting and I do not want to have to touch it.


Paying ~ If we have just opened and you are my first customer and your total purchase comes to $3.10 no you cannot pay with a hundred. Also you cannot pay with a hundred if you total is less then fifty. Epically if it is less then $10 and I saw that you have a ten-dollar bill in your wallet.


Speak proper English ~ If I ask you “Would you like a bag?” you are not allowed to answer “I don’t need no bag.” Because basically you just told me you need a bag. Also if I ask you the same question and you reply with “No thanks I left her at home.” I get to punch you in the face. Not only is that sexist but I hear that between five and six times a day.

Well, in defense of the 5:45am beer buyers, could they just be coming off working the night shift? I used to work midnights and I'd drink a beer or two as soon as I got home, which absolutely appalled the day-shifters when I happened to mention it. Because drinking beer at 6:30am is wrong. It just didn't register in their tiny little brains that I'd been awake for 12 hours and my 6:30am was their 6:30pm -- even after I explained it and used color-coded graphs to show that I was asleep when they were awake and vice-versa --drinking beer that early in the morning is wrong, wrong, wrong.

I can give you that because I have worked night shift and know how is inverts your life. But this guy did not get off of night shift. He worked at Omega Steel which is about five miles from where I work and they do not have a night shift.

It has just gotten worse when I switched to the closing shift. I see the same people in there two to three times a night buying beer.

Wet and dirty money is nasty. When I worked at the bank, there were a couple of the bars that had reputations. One had the dirty money and one had the smelly money. GAG! So you have my sympathy.

I just do not get it. How did the money get wet in the first place? I have washed my wallet before but I always let it dry before I put it back together. IT is times like those that I am glad I cannot smell.

One customer we had gave me wet money folded into a tiny squeare (which meant I had to handle it a lot to flatten it out - ugh). Turned out he's folded it up small so it could fit under the elastic of his shorts while he was on his bike. it was wet because it was sweaty. >:P

Dear lord that is vile. We had a guy who feel in to a septic tank. His money was wet and smelled bad. I was glad for the next two weeks that I could not smell.

Yech! I think that's worse!

I worked at a bookshop (and other shops) for years. I know Wet Money all too well. XP I also know those who pay (in our case) for a newspaper with R200 note (the biggest denomination) first thing on a Sunday morning when our entire float was R300 and the banks were all shut. Then they'd get snippy with us if we wouldn't oblige, so we'd try to persude them to have a sup of coffee at the coffee shop outside first and even let them take their paper and pay us for it when they had sensible money.

It is times like that when I wish I could smack people across the face, but apparently that is a bad way to do business.
