    oh boy...im full of them. im a bagger/cashier at Kroger( supermarket for those who dont have one). we have crazies come in all the time.

    one lady comes in and everytime she buys only 2 things. beer and another item. and every single time she complains about item #2. so she gets a 24 pack of COCA-COLA and she says "wait a minute....that coke.....is 8.99. its suppsed to be 4.99?" and i say yes it is 8.99. "are you f****** kidding me!?" i say "no mamn. and it isnt on sale either" so she says "WHAT!!! WHERE THE HELL IS YOUR MANAGER!? THIS THE DAMN MOST EXPENSIVE STORE IN THE ENTIER STATE FOR COKE!!!! IM GOING TO HAVE TO HAVE YOU AND YOU(my bagger...) FIRED!!" so manager comes down and a price check is done..... 8.99. so i ask her "look mamn. its 8.99. do you want the cokes or not?" so she says" well if im not going to get a discount or anything, im NOT getting them" took her beer. and left. later i went back and checked and what she tried to get was a 24pack of coke for the price of a 24pack of Big-K(coke generic brand).

    next story. lady comes through. i was a bagger this time. total is taken up and she tries to pay with a check. check dosent go through and a second ID is needed(being a drivers liscense) she spent 10 mins looking for it and said "oh no. i left it at blockbuster!(right down thew street)" so we said we couldnt accept the check nad also "we cant accept it for your safety" so then it started.... "SAFETY! THATS WHAT I HAVE INSURENCE FOR!! i cant believe this! i need your name(three peoples names including the co-manager haha!) i will have you fired for treating me like this.... and it went on. and she still does the same thing to this day.

    Same...got the job 2 days after my 15th birthday ahaha. I got in so much trouble there. Had a real problem with peopl ethat were 35 years older than me but had the SAME EXACT JOB (cashier) telling me what to do. I always told them if they knew what to do, they wouldn't be in their 40s and working as a cashier at Kroger haha

    The Analope vally mall? I lived in Mojave CA for 12 years and went to palmdale alot as it was pretty close. That mall is very infamous! I think that there is a group of people that try to piss other people off, as they have me on several occasions, and over such stupid things such as cutting in line. Very annoying!

    Alex, how could you stay so calm when that lady was yelling at you. Very good. I simply cant stand people like that! Thats why I dont work in retail.

    Yes! I've only been there like 5 times in the past three years and never had any negative experiences... Maybe I should stick to the Glendale Galleria?

    One thing I have learned is that you cannot let people get to you. I believe that there some people are placed on this planet just to make others miserable. They are purely egocentric and if you allow them to get to you, then you lose. I'm with Alex; if you stay cool, calm, reserved, and use logic, then you end up as the better person.
