Not a peeve but a story.

Be checking people out.
Autism cart rolls up.
Child is extremely fat. 250+ maybe 12 years old.
Polishing off a family sized bag of chips.
Think he's just an autistic fat kid.

No user. He wasn't autistic. This child was a fully functioning spoiled train wreck of a human being.
The chips were just the start. Sodas were open. Half the donuts were eaten.
I was literally handed handfuls of food wrappers and Pokemon card wrappers.

They didn't have the cards he wanted so he told his mother to go to Toys R Us.
The mother said ok like it was the most natural thing in the world. This woman is literally killing her child by spoiling him. I seriously considered telling a manager to call cps or something.

people that just paid and then stand in front of the cashier putting all their shit, slowly, back in their bags

Fuck those people. I have rammed them with my cart and like an idiot, I felt guilty about it then. But god damn am I glad I did it.

On the flip side, I live in Holland and more than half the cashiers are good looking. On top of that, they are almost always friendly and very flirty.

People who mess with bad carousel while bagging.
Customers who call me by name. (It's just weird.)
"Gawkers" (Customers who watch you bag without putting their stuff into the cart.)
Customers who don't get their stuff until end of purchase.
People who pay with more than 4-5 bills/coins. (I enjoy counting 100+ 1$ bills.)
Customers who don't understand their own payment methods.
Price checks. (I check every thing fuck these scamming fucks.)
Left hand registers.
people who park far away and inevitably leave their cart not in a corral.

The general lack of expediency and awareness, just like freeway driving. Speaking of which I have to share a great freeway story--you know how when they're doing construction, most people are aware and are like, "oh shit let me get into the proper lane"...but then arrogant prick fuck line cuttters zoom past and then whine like an adult baby to be let in?

Recently that was the case as per usual; I'm approaching the proper lane with a semi ahead. I let him go first, plenty of room to get fully squared in the lane. But he angles just enough to block the prick line cutting lane ON PURPOSE to block the prick crybaby line cutters. NOT ON MY WATCH! HAHAHAHA!!!! Back of the line you stupid fucks...It gave me the same feeling of enjoyment when someone fucks everything up behind you and not in front of you...deal with it bitches PEEEACEEE

i was a cashier for a couple summers in highschool and i've got a few gripes on the working side:

using too many of those semi-opaque produce bags on your vegetables, making it impossible to read the codes
getting mad when i touch your stuff
being really specific about how you want your groceries bagged but still wanting me to do it
giving me a hard time when i don't recognize the produce, ask if it's one of two similar-looking things (cilantro/italian parsley)
making me go and find the code for the item from the bakery/bulk when it was your job
asking for a refund on a 50cent piece of produce that YOU picked out

the best one:
not having enough money and asking me to cover the difference

@TalkBomber
Customers who call me by name. (It's just weird.)
fuck thats a good one. one time i called the person 'customer' as a joke and they were not stoked. then another time some half-drunk girl did it and i called her 'cute girl' and she WAS stoked.

on the customer side
when people stand in front of shit and act indignant when you say something
not having enough cashes open
the self-checkout supervisor running around (although i can see that being a really shit job, but it's still frustrating to sit there for 3 minutes when you accidently lean on the weighted bagging area

I don't think this issue happens as often because grocery stores have updated the machines to be more efficient:
I used to hate it when I got done scanning and bagging an entire basket only for the customer to pull out one of those manufacturer coupons where you'd have to write-in the price of the product to get it free. And usually they'd do this on purpose to try to stiff the cashiers.
The stipulation was that they'd have to buy two products to get the third free, and they'd hope you would just not notice/get irritated looking and give them the free product regardless if they followed the rules.
The machine I cashiered on at the time was so old (I worked at the store in 2009 and these registers were from the late 90s) that I would have to manually scroll up and then determine what item gibberish the product was and guess the price. Or go through all the bags looking for the stupid products. If I had to tell them they didn't buy the right products and I couldn't honor the coupon, they'd start hollering at my ass until a manager came over. They'd get pissy if they tried to get an expensive product free (these coupons had money caps) and I had to tell them no.

It's not hard to give the coupons to the cashier first so they can be aware of what they're looking for, unless you're trying to be a rip off. It still peeves me if I'm behind one of these damn couponers in line and they start being fussy.

Evil_kitten

@StonedTime
They have them because somehow they have figured that it makes more money for them.

It's not "somehow" user, this is well known: When you get a card they give you a discount in exchange for being able to track your purchasing habits. That's what the card is for--it is used to track what you buy, which can't be done if you pay cash for obvious reasons, or with a credit card due to banking privacy laws. The card is an entry in their database that tracks what you buy. That data is what the stores use to figure out what items to stock and which to discontinue.

SomethingNew
SomethingNew

@StonedTime
@Evil_kitten
Not only for tracking but I think people misunderstand how the sales and coupons work

The way the sales and coupons work is that it's all recorded and the store reports the sales from sale items to the suppliers and then they are reimbursed by the suppliers.

In other words, everybody wins in this situation. Plus, paying their full retail or not getting something in return for paying full price is fucking asinine.

w8t4u
w8t4u

@Evil_kitten
It's also simple psychology. If people believe they are getting more discounts at a particular store and have a card, they will more likely be repeat customers.
Also when they fill out the address and email info, circulars and ads are sent to them from that store.

iluvmen
iluvmen

@w8t4u
It's not just psycological though. They literally ARE getting a discount. People are basically exchanging their purchasing history with the store in exchange for lower prices.

I am not even remotely interested into figuring out how these card benefit these companies. You just know that they do and that's it. Don't ever make these cards, never use them.
I have many theories to explain how they benefit them, and it really doesn't matter, you just don't want these fucking cards. Same reason why you avoid anything that is priced XX.99$

As a guy who worked in a grocery store for 6 years, literally most things customers do are pet peeves. Here are some off the top of my head.
Walk up to me and just ask a question like I'm google "Where's the X/Y/Z". At least say "hello".
Being adamant that your pronunciation of a product is correct when I repeat what you said but as it's supposed to be said. Merlot is not pronounced "Mair-laht". Deal with it.
Interrupting me helping another customer to ask for help. Wait your fucking turn you aren't more important than anyone else.
Talking to another person in an extremely inconvenient location for everybody else (women are the worse offenders here) such as taking up an aisle or an entire popular display
Breaking something and not notifying anyone and just walking away like you never did it. We know.
Complaining about prices. I don't set them and I can't change them. The orderer sets the prices based on what price he can get on a good. Profit margins are very slim. This has to be one of the top 5 pet peeves.
If it's 8PM and there's about 5 people in the store, feel free to start a monologue about your life. If we're busy, go away.
Ask for something, I tell you we "unfortunately don't have it right now, I'm sorry", and then ask if we have any in the back. If the shelf is empty and I just TOLD YOU WE DON'T HAVE IT, then we don't have it.
If we're out of a really common product of a specific brand, such as wanting Coors Light, and then complain. Just buy Bud Light or Miller Lite or literally any other light beer they all taste like watered down piss.
Asking for an piece of food to be reduced just because it has one surface spot on it. Just pick another piece of fruit.
Coming in at closing time and then shopping like normal. There's literally no way you couldn't have come in any time between opening and closing to shop? We want to go home and it's 20 minutes past close. Hurry up.

"Sorry, Sir. Let me just enter my number this time."

Besides, I think the store card price is the normal price. It's just a stupid-ass little jig they all make you dance now.

Most of the points that user listed and being miffed about them have nothing to do with good customer service. "The customer is king/is always right" gets thrown around a lot. But is fundamentally flawed.
The correct saying should be "The customer is also just a person trying to get through their day as best as possible." And that goes both ways. No side has should need to take shit from the other, if everyone acts with some basic decency.

I have grocery store anxiety and it fucking sucks. I feel like all the old people are judging me for filling my basket with frozen food and beer instead of vegetables and shit, even though they probably can't even see well enough to know what I'm buying, let alone care about it. I bet it would be worse if I were fat, since then it wouldn't even be a stretch to believe that some people would negatively judge my choices. As it is, I know I have personally judged people who show up at the checkout with nothing but fourteen frozen pizzas, diet pepsi, and tons of cat food.

this reminds me of a story from a couple months back. went to walmart with ma. she chooses the line that has five customers waiting to put the groceries on the belt. I see there is no one in the next line and one person in the line on the other side. so I tell ma and she says she don't like that cashier. okay lets wait 15 minutes then. as i'm standing there, a nigger starts waiting behind my ma, with one big item in his cart. why is this line so popular? is this nig checking out my white moms ass? then two minutes later he b lines straight ahead to the customer service area and I watch him "returning" the item that he had a receipt for. but he just went and grabbed the item off the shelf and got the item he has sitting at home for free basically.
just another way to steal from walmart folks do with it what you will

I mean the costco doorperson makes no effort to hide the fact that they are checking your card to make sure you are a member and checking your receipt to make sure you didn't steal a TV.

Since it's a members-only store it feels a little different somehow, like it's fair to put up with poor treatment in order to justify the low prices. Like I'm also not going to complain about the fact that there are no roaming employees to help you find things, it's all part of the bargain.
I guess it is pretty much the same thing though. That Fortune article I linked even said that walmart is putting receipt-checkers by the doors of the locations where they have the worst loss rates.

That is actually by design, same with the "no bags" situation. The original store that came up with this, Price Club, is no longer in business, but Costco stole it from them.

@Emberburn
Well for Costco I am bound by contract via the membership agreement to present my receipt as I exit with my purchase. At Walmart there is no such contract and they're basically treating you like a thief.

StrangeWizard

@SniperWish
No bags? I guess I never noticed. When I buy cases of wine they have plenty of boxes for me to take at least. Also never realized that Price Club isn't the same thing as Costco. The ones around here used to be called Price Club and got the name changed to Costco later, which I thought was funny because the "Price" in Price Club was a person's name, while the cost in Costco just refers to the cost of goods.

That is also how I have felt for years about the TSA, like if they were somehow contractors of the airlines that I had to agree to relinquish my privacy to in order to enter into the ticket contract, nobody could make any argument. As a government agency, I feel that they violate my 4th Amendment rights.
Obviously not the same thing as Walmart which is already a private entity (although I do have some ideas about nationalizing Walmart), but it is less insulting if I feel like I've been given a choice in the matter (i.e., whether to buy a costco membership).

...while I am allready calling the other guy and am clearly aware of the situation(stop wadling up to me and asking to a register several times)

Last saturday at like half 9 I had a customer that was capable of making me call for a second register while there where nearly no people in the store at all.

Mostly old people who have a nasty habit of jamming up isles talking to each other, they don't stick to their own side of that isle but rather gravitate towards the middle like rust around a magnet and won't ever fucking move for anyone younger than they are and god fucking help you if one of these decaying farts finds their way to the self-checkout since they get flummoxed by the easy to use machines, and then they get frustrated and verbally angry with everyone.

That's a legitimate complaint for a grocery store seeing as that is your only purpose, selling common goods. Would you prefer they raise a bitch fit and ask for the manager instead of just passing along their concern to you?
Might wanna get some control over your emotions at some point.

No, it's not. Stores look at trends and get shipments accordingly.If they completely sell out of a common item they know that they understocked, you bitching at some low-level employee isn't accomplishing anything because they're #1 not getting paid enough to care about your whining and #2 it's not their problem. By all means, go to management and whine your little heart out to them.

Shoulda gotten your ass to the grocery store before Thanksgiving day if you wanted your Turkey, bumpkin.

I work in a Safeway

People standing right behind me and looking over my shoulder while I'm trying to work

People who won't get out of the way when I'm trying to get through the aisle with a load

For this one, I don't mean the normal people that are just unaware that you're there, I mean the ones that will look me in the eye when I say "excuse me", then look away and continue to shop. Like mother fucker I KNOW you heard me, don't be fucking rude.

People who let their kids run amok
(Not just tired parent too exhausted to discipline, but will literally ignore their kids and text on their phone or shop)

People who get mad at me for not knowing every specific thing about the different cuts of meat, even though I'll tell them that I'm not the butcher, just the closing clerk

user I would argue that raising your child to be a fat waste of skin would probably indicate that the parents are also fat wastes of skin.

Have you never seen hoarders? Most people who live like this have filthy homes. The only clean things are their plates after every meal.

Obviously they are not mentally capable of caring for their child.

hey can i bring in a deer for you to cut up?
can you slice this frozen turkey in half?
what do you mean it isn't a roast if it's less than 2.5lbs! I WANT IT FOR THE SALE PRICE
you dont have x? well are you going to give me y for the price of x?
Just fucking go away. No you don't get shit for free. No I cant cut a frozen solid turkey in half by hand. No I will not process a deer for you for free. If I do not have something please trust me that I do not have it.

large african american goddess fills an entire aisle's width with her beauty and strength
she is independent so she is in no hurry to be anywhere
she calculates for several minutes and makes an informed decision about what to buy

extremely intelligent soccer mom radiates with tanned perfection and glorious bleached hair, with ponytail
she is a hard worker, so taking her sunglasses off indoors is not required
she knows her children, so you don't need to tell her that they're destroying the place
kindly informs employees about the state of the store's inventory, keeping track of everything that's out of stock
seems to have an african american child in tow along with her children, she must be babysitting

an person with many years under their belt, probably has fought in several wars, is buying coffee
acknowledging their valor, they park their buggy perpendicularly to the aisle, effortlessly protecting themselves from any dangerous traffic
seems to have flashbacks while looking at the coffee, takes an hour to decide
salute this person for their service to our country, they are a true hero

i help people with mental illness for a living, and work with one horrible, fat, no-impulse control asshole in particular. when i take him grocery shopping, he always manages to take up the whole aisle with his cart and bloated beach ball body. when i tell him to get out of the way so someone can pass he makes it worse by almost pulling wheelies inside the aisle. he follows me with the cart anyway when i tell him to leave it somewhere so he wont be a bother. he aggressively stares up and down any women shoppers that pass by. he bumps his cart into other carts and almost hits people with his cart when i tell him to watch out for x, y, or z. its like telling him to watch out for something makes it worse.
he also intentionally bumped into a woman once and stared her up and down as she quickly walked away. her husband didnt notice cus he was looking at some vending machine, and the asshole denied it when i chewed him out over it. he deserved to have his ass kicked by the husband though. i kinda hate him.

The problem with self check out is that they expect the simplified baby proof machine to do both the work of a real machine and the job of the the cashieer and to keep track of a thousand different articles
If instead of offering it as an alternative to an Express line you add it to the deli and let people who only use the deli pay for the things they want there inside the store then you are getting rid of the clog that happens during lunch hours because people who are only there to buy something for lunch can walk to the deli, get their shit and pay for it there and then walk outside the store
