Do you work here?

- No bitch. I just happen to walk around with a name tag, walkie talkie, headset for no reason and just happen to be in their look policy with no purse or jacket or any other shopping bags. Yup I just do that for shits and giggles

Grocery store kindness

I am a cashier at a local grocery store. I’ve been working at grocery stores for about 3 years, so I’ve had my fair share of mean customers. But I’ve never had a customer yell at me and call me rude for asking them if they found what they were looking for. This lady came in and I asked her if she found everything okay, and she called me rude for asking her. HOW AM I BEING RUDE?I am just making sure she found everything she was looking for! We have just rearranged the entire store. Unbelievable!


  • Salesperson: Hi how are you today?
  • Customer: Yeah, how much is this T-shirt?
  • Salesperson: They can tell you at the register. I'm not a walking calculator.
  • Customer: *looks all shocked*

Walmart Shoplifter Shamed

After watching a woman in Walmart shoplifting several items, a guy decided to follow her, she soon realized she was being watched. He started filming when she began pulling item after item out of a purse that at one point was also concealed in her own purse.

New Coworker

  • I saw sketchy people come into work so I follow them around the store.
  • I said, "Hi how are you today?"
  • One of them replied with, "Aye yo yo imma be yo new coworker!!!" And does a gangster thing with his hands
  • I smiled and said, "Hi I'm going to be your manager." and put my hand out to shake his.
  • His friends were like DAMNNNN.

That moment that nobody wants to work Black Friday

I’ve worked in retail before.


From a customer that’s giving you a hard time.

I hate every idiot that comes in saying that, it’s like oh really I wonder why you don’t work in fucking retail anymore!!

Hey fucking watch your kids!!!

- This one time I heard a loud noise in baby, I was in adult. so obviously I checked… it turns out that a child knocked over one of the mannequins… Not just any, a pregnant adult. The fucking kid was at least 3 yrs old. Where the hell did she get that strength?! The best part is that the mom didn’t give two shits hahaha. When they left were were like are you fucking kidding me watch your kid or don’t have any.

I give crying children stickers to shut them up.

- I would see a crying baby in the store then go over to them and would ask “awww do you want a sticker so mommy and daddy can do their shopping?” When in reality I’m thinking… “Shut up, shut up, here’s a sticker.”
