Sometimes dollar stores can be depressing. Like when little old ladies come in for basic necessities and still can't afford them. I've ended up behind such old ladies before. I always end up covering what they can't even though I can't really afford it myself.. I keep buying homeless people food too.. The world makes me sad..

I know that feel. My last favorite place to be at work is on register. Of course, they get in the way when I'm on the floor. Always asking stupid questions. Always trying to get price reductions when they're already at a discount department store. You wouldn't believe the anger that burns in me when I'm at work.

In all honesty I love being on register. I have an 8 hour work day. At a zoo. That is the most boring piece of **** place in the world to me currently. When you're on register the time actually passes by quite quickly. It's nice in a way. As compared to holding stuffed animals outside in the heat for 8 hours.

Yea I can understand that. I can't stand standing still doing relatively nothing. So standing there selling stuffed would suck. My two least favorite places to be are on the and in the fitting room. I go back and forth with which one I hate more. There the two places we deal with the most customers and In the fitting room we have to pretty much stand there waiting for people. In slow days it is very boring.

I love the register too, the worst part of my job is having to brew Timmy's coffee every 15 minutes (15 + 5 minutes for brew = 20 mins)
I came here to sell gas station stuff!

But all in all my job is good.

Price reductions? Like, what are we talkin' here?

"This chare is too expensive. Lower the price"

or

"Hey, I want to buy eight chairs. Can you guys give me a bulk price or should I go to a different store?"

Like hey this shoe has a teeny tiny mark on the inside part of the heel. Here's a magnifying glass so you can see it. How much are you gonna take off? That's a slight exaggeration but they want discounts for stupid stuff like that.

Legitimate work story:

>Working in a Food Kiosk one day
>Sassy Black Woman comes up to me
>I ask her how I can help her
>Tells me her daughter is missing
>I asked her where the last time I saw her
>She tells me by the sandbox

I work at Subway. Just today, a couple middle school girls came in.
"How much are two 6 inches?"
"That depends on which sandwiches you get."
"What do you mean."
"Like, the cost depends on which sandwich you get." -pointing at the menu to help them out-
". . . so how much are two 6 inches?"
Jesus.

This. So much this. Especially tonight.   
I work at a pizza place. We make pizza and ****.   
We stop delivering at 10PM and stop making anything at 10:30. We start cleaning up around 8:30. Any pizzas we get in the next half-hour-ish is undesired since we already got the prep table taken apart and cleaned and whatever, but it's not too bad.   
Tonight, though....   
************* people.   
At 9:30, we get 3 deliveries and a carry-out, each order for 2 large pizzas.   
So after we get everything done except sweeping and mopping, we have to make 8 pizzas. ******* people.   
My bro Alec was doing the delivering, and even after the entire ******* day, he got only $5 in tips from 7 deliveries. For those who don't deliver pizza, that's completely ******. The average amount a delivery driver would get is $10-15 just in tips.   
   
I just....   
I ******* hate people sometimes.   
   
Also, for the 8 hours I've been awake so far, my back has been in constant pain.

****, I hope it's not like that in the pizza place I usually order from. It's usually open til about 11pm - 12 am or so, and I assume the employees are scheduled to work until 1am or something so the kitchen is closed for an hour and gives them time to clean. That's how it usually works in kitchens I've worked in, I thought it was always the same... I really hope we're not pissing anyone off when we order pizza late at night...

I wish I could tell everyone in our town to not order pizza from us after 8:30, but I can't so I suppose I'll start with you.
Please, on behalf of those who work wherever you order from, do not order anything in the last 60-90 minutes they're open. It's really annoying and inconvenient. If you do, though, make it simple, like a single-topping instead of a ******* Supreme. And don't wait until later, make your order as early as possible.
We have another Casey's in town that's open 24-hours (though they don't deliver) and another that will do the same when the building is done in a few months. I wish I could just tell people to order from there instead.

We usually jsut get a simple pepperoni pizza anywayz. One thing i always make sure to do is give a nice healthy tip though, so I don't feel super guilty. Tell me, are you american? Cause I live in Canada, so hopefully pizza shops are a bit different~

Yes I am. Specifically from Iowa.
That's a good thing; if you're going to inconvenience someone more than just an average order would do, then at least tip well. $5 is really good. There's only one person who tips when he picks up a carry-out and he is everyone's favorite because of that, even if it is just $2. I recommend you do the same because they'll love you for it.

We as a group usually tip somewhere from 5 - 10 dollars every delivery, actually! It's good to know 5 bucks is considered a good tip, so when we occasionally do 10, we're awesome.

I've only ever got a $10 tip once since I worked at where I work. It was an amazing night.
But yes, a $5 tip is fantastic. It's actually less common than you might think. I usually get $1-3 which is fine and not at all bad. What I really hate is when people either don't give much more than what is needed to pay for the order or ask for change. I HATE when people ask for change because it requires me to dig into my bag for pennies and I don't get a tip. I also hate credit card payments because it takes longer to process and I'm probably busy and they almost never add a tip to it.
If your pizza costs, say, $17, then by all means pay with a 20. $3 may not seem like much but to the person who just drove to your house (which is ****** at night when you can't see house numbers) it really means a lot.

Or at least go there and ask when they start cleaning or something. If they clean for an hour after they close, then disregard me since it wouldn't be a problem.

In my experience the worst customers are the ones who want either A) An insanely detailed customized order (often massive) or B) Something not on the menu.

i agree the tipping is ******* ******, i usually give $5 just for one delivery. but on the other hand, people want food, and late sometimes, i mean they don't know that you guys are all ready cleaned up, but still. also was 830 a typo?

No, that really is about when we start cleaning up.
It can be as early as just 8 if we have nothing to do and have had very few orders all day.

Well they wouldn't "suck" it would just be "Aw, a pizza after we've already put the sauce and everything into containers. Oh well."
It's only bad around 9-9:30 when we've already got the prep boards and the pans and everything washed and the dough-roller cleaned because then we have to rewash/reclean things.

see that extra clarification helped! i guess thats just an unfortunate thing because if you waited to put the prep boards and pans away, then you would just have to stay later, which would not be fun as well
