I was at a nearby store today, and when I got in line, there were 2 people in front of me. Instead of checking out the first customer, the cashier, who was heavily tattooed and old enough to know better, was telling the stories behind her tattoos to the customer and tossing in a healthy dose of ex-bashing. :rolleyes: Another cashier opened up a lane, so I stepped over there and got checked out, while the other cashier kept up her rolling commentary.
Afterwards, I went to the customer service desk and asked for a manager, and told her what this cashier had been doing. I added that it’s OK for someone to say things like “How’s your husband?” “Oh, we got divorced” but this was massively inappropriate. The manager agreed, and paged that cashier as soon as I walked away from the counter.
I got the impression that it wasn’t the first time she’d had a complaint about this particular cashier.
(Old enough to know better than to bash her ex while working, not necessarily old enough to not be heavily tattooed.)
