I feel bad complaining about this, but… I’ve been working as a cashier for 6 years. Within the past year I had an issue with my foot, where I develop a significant pain if I stand on it for even a couple hours, meaning I would end up limping severely. Thankfully, a doctor’s note has given me the chance to use a stool, which helps lessen the tension on my foot.
But the customers.
This mostly occurs when I’m manning the self checkout machines, because there’s no counter to sit behind. Almost every time I’m there, customers will walk by and tell me things like “You have an easy job!” or “I want your job!” and most recently, “Let me get you off that stool [to put you to work]!” and I just feel so self conscious and horrible. I am not sitting because I want to. I am greatly jealous of all the people who can walk around and work normally, I miss that ability. I know I can’t really hold it against the customers as they’re just trying to be friendly and joke around, but I wish they wouldn’t, it just makes me feel bad. I am trying to do my best despite my health issues and struggling with pain. It’s not a joke.
I’ll definitely never make comments like this to other retail workers. You never know what their story is.
I had to get a doctors note just so my boss wouldn’t force me to do carts (I have a similar leg issue due to having club-foot when I was born) and they only listened for like a week. I know how you feel, because even my coworkers made comments like that when I had to ask them to do it instead
Before I got the doctors note, I had a (now ex) coworker who worked in a department with a desk, and he would specifically brag and take pictures of himself sitting at the desk to rub in my face because he thought it was funny. I do not miss him.
Getting it from customers is frustrating, but it’s worse when it’s from coworkers, because you’d hope your “team” is more understanding.
In case anyone is wondering, Sam and I both got a 3DS with Animal Crossing and Pokemon on Black Friday as early Christmas gifts, so we’ve been rather distracted with that when we haven’t been working. I’ll probably catch up with stuff tomorrow since I’ll have a day off.
I shouldn’t be buying doujinshi right now, but I kind of desperately am wanting to purchase “Growing Pain #2” by Pesce Rosso. I unfortunately wasn’t able to catch it on toranoana and I can’t seem to find any other shops that carry it.
I have the first one and I really want the continuation. I love Zucky’s work! If anyone can help me find a shop that is selling it, or if anyone has a copy that they’d be willing to part with, please let me know. Thank you!
Ahhhhhhh! Finally after searching for well over a year I’m finally going to get this doujinshi! You have no idea how excited I am!! Uwahhh!!!
Going through my files and
I made a thing and I 100% encourage sharing it with as many people as possible through all means possible.
reminder we are literally supposed to ask if you want the store’s card, and we are supposed to push it a little. we’re supposed to make light conversation. this is shit that is in our training. don’t get fucking snippy.
also don’t get mad at the employees because they ran out of stock. chances are, they didn’t decide how much of something came in, and they most certainly didn’t decide how many people bought it already.
Honestly, often they will get fired if they don’t play the 20 questions checkout game. Dont be a douche to people just trying to stay employed. Its YOUR choice to be out shopping at ungodly hours, its their JOB to be there, have a soul, be kind
I’m supposed to be working the self checkout registers on Black Friday. I am scared. I will be manning four registers mostly on my own. This is actually difficult, ESPECIALLY when it is busy, especially when customers at ALL FOUR SCO registers need help AT THE SAME TIME. We do our best to help everyone as soon as we can. Please have patience with us.
I might have been a little bored at work…

I’ve used this site too, and it’s really nice. You can look up a word and it’ll give you examples of context, as well as related phrases, and often a nice list of forum discussions on different ways to use the word in a phrase, most of the discussions have assistance from native speakers as well.
And of course I have to feel sick at a time when Sam’s brother is using the bathroom, because he takes for freaking ever…
