At voluntary work, I worked on a till for two and a half years and I got so much rubbish from customers but still managed to stay polite, I’d smile etc it’s not so hard as I had some customers I really got on with I met one on the bus the other day and she was lovely.
I had to put up with so much rudeness and still keep a smile on my face, some who were particularly rude would make me lose it on the inside but I like shocking people by returning the rudeness with a smile it really does shock!
But then again I know many cashiers who are just so rude it’s ridiculous, I’ve been laughed at etc, it’s not hard to be nice, what gives them the right to judge when they dont know you? I was bored out of my brains the last year because I was relatively well but that’s no excuse for being so rude, I’d always be polite, apart from a few times which I do admit to (being twitchy, hearing voices, paranoia etc) normally I’m very good at hiding it but sometimes as I’m sure many of you know it escapes, most of the time I wouldn’t go in when I was like that but sometimes it just sneaked up on me…
But I don’t think being in such a job gives you the right to judge those you serve, no right whatsoever do they think they’re better than everyone else or something? I felt less than those I served when on till but it wouldn’t surprise me that some cashiers think that they’re more because they have a job or for whatever their reasoning is!
I wouldn’t take it to heart though, she doesn’t deserve that sort of reaction and you shouldn’t have to feel that way, if she does it again though I’d make a complaint to her upperbove, that would make her think twice treating a customer I such a manner!
