Whilst at Walmart – 2 (You’re Not as Funny as you Think)

These are the lines EVERYONE uses when going through the checkout line at Wal-Mart. Your cashier HAS heard them before. They are no longer funny, they are just plain awkward for your cashier. Thank you.
When one sees a cashier with no line:

“Are you waiting for me?” or “You look like you are just waiting for me.” They are – that’s their job.

When an item doesn’t ring up or the scanner won’t pick up the UPC code:
“Guess that means it is free.” No – it doesn’t.

When asked by the cashier if one found everything they were looking for:
“And so much more!” or “I hope so” or “Except for that one thing I will remember when I get home.”

When going through the cigarette line and buying three packs of Camel Menthol Wides and the cashier asks if she has gotten the right pack:
“Looks fine to me. They all kill you, right?” WHAT THE HECK AM I SUPPOSED TO SAY TO THAT???

Oh, and tonight this guy kept screwing up at self-checkout and I had to go over to his register three times to help him. He apologized and then said, “Actually, it is my lame attempt to pick you up.” I was so taken off guard that I GIGGLED (whatever!) and said, “That’s sweet.” I don’t recommend anyone say either of these things either. What a dork – him and me.

    I’m crying from laughing at this post. Thank you!! I needed that this morning.

  3. Wait until you are out on the floor stocking and someone asks for something that right in front of them. “If it was a snake, it woulda bit me.” I heard that about 4,875,392 times while working at the grocery store. Also, if you ever fill the cold beer case…”Hey buddy, is the beer hot?” Yes, in fact it is. I was just bringing it to a frothy boil in the back room.I can’t tell you how much I love the Walmart stories…Give me some food stamp stories.

    Wow. Amazing how 15 years after I worked at Walmart-the lines are still the same. I’m pretty sure no one ever said they were trying to pick me up. That was only the other EMPLOYEES, but no customers. 🙂
