    201. When you are told that you must ring up a cart-full of merchandise (hundreds of $$ worth) by manual order, 45 minutes after closing. The process takes the better half of an hour, and you get in trouble for staying past the 5 hour lunch rule, even though you were only following the manager's instruction as the last associate at the registers. :)  
     
    202. Managers blame you for a large lost sale when the customer leaves because your debit pad wasn't working and the customer refused to run the card as a credit....and the customer refused to wait two minutes for the next cashier.

    Liana Mei here, can't seem to sign in.

    206). When your till and the safe are almost emptied because a customer paid $2000 cash for his TV and won't take his refund by company check (which is supposedly the company policy).

    207). When this customer (see 206) arrives first thing in the morning and moans and bitches to management that they want their refund now...despite being told that the cash is simply not available.

    Liana's back again.

    208) When you are trying to clock out, only to go through a gauntlet of customers to the clock. (see 64)....you are courteous, stop to answer the customer's questions, then clock out only to be yelled at by management for your measely 2 minutes of OT.

    209) When a part-timer can receive medical benefits (see # 73)...and yet still chooses to purchase their own health insurance because the plans offered do not cover the employee's basic medical needs...such as non-formulary medications that are required for said employee to survive the week.

    Liana again (attempting to fix computer error)...apparently both IE and Firefox want me to open a file inorder to log-in...anyway continuing the list.

    210) When there is no sign stating "We do not accept bills over $20"...and therefore the customer buys a soda for the sole purpose of breaking the $100. For the next hour +, you get yelled at by management for "turning away" customers that you literally CAN NOT help...because that one *bleep* customer wiped out your till with a single transaction.

    211) When you can not "buy change" from your fellow cashier because this is punishable by suspension which the customer refuses to believe.

    Liana and her insomnia again...I swear reading this post again just gives me more and more ideas....

    212). When the PLU sticker does not reflect the product's current price...and you are not at all suprised. Its all fine if the price is lower than the the sticker...but if not. Hmm.

    213). When sale items were not re-plued and the customer insists on getting a manager to write a quote for the discounted price. (see 212)

    214). When you finally decide "to hell with it" and skip the steps of explaining a misplu to the bitchy customer and simply beg the dept manager to get said customer out the door, discount or no discount. (see 213)

    215). When you get in major trouble because you processed an LCD monitor purchase by manual order (stupid crashing servers) and forgot to include the PLU for the recycling fee (which is added automatically into the computer) and therefore the actual sales total does not equal the amount of the cc temporary authorization...or it means that your till is short by the exact amount of the fee. Do I smell a disciplinary write-up?

    Not going to bother introducing myself this time....

    216) When, during Black Friday closing, you find customers and carts parked on the shoulder of the freeway onramp (directly behind the store) because they can't be bothered to park in the empty lot down the street...the ad item might be gone by the time they get to the store....as if it hasn't been gone for hours already.

    217) When, on the morning of Black Friday, you are very thankful to management for having the foresight to have a tiny "wall" seperating the exit and enterance lines, thereby insuring that customers can not trample you to death to get to the ad items. (Yes, this actually happened a few years ago, I believe it was at a Walmart in New Jersey...sorry NY) http://www.nytimes.com/2008/11/29/business/29walmart.html

    218). When customers actually do think that having a certain brand of credit card makes them a VIP customer deserving of the royal treatment (and, yes, American Express, I'm talking to you).

    219). When you were elated at the prospect of having a tool as basic as a cash register display.

    220). When there is mutiny in the checkout line because the Vanna told the customer the wrong light number (who can ever tell which green light is actually flashing, anyway?). You try to tell the customer that he probably meant the light 2 down from you, but no, the customer insists that you must help him immediately...despite the fact that your light is off due to a computer crash.

    221). When upper management's idea of employee appreciation is make you show-up at the store for a 6 am "Awards Ceremony" which of course means getting up before 5:30 am...You have the breakfast (which is barely decent) and the ceremony over by 7, clean-up for an hour, then the store opens at 8...then the customers are left to wonder why all of the employeees (without exception) are zombies. Or worse yet, this "appreciation" is infliced upon you on your day off...and if you don't show up to be "appreciated" you can expect to be suspended....

    Yes, Liana is going to try to kick her insomnia by actually going to bed now, before 2 AM hits... Wait, are the clocks going foreward or back this time? I always mess that up....Good thing I don't work tomorrow.

    190. When it takes 1 SM, 1 ASM, 2 DM and 1 Supervisor to figure out how to remove a pair of panties for the porn section.

    LMAO
