Since everyone is complaining about their cashier pet peeves, I will enlighten you about cashier pet peeves. 1. Hand us your money. Don't put it on our belt (it will eat it) or on the counter. I have to hand you your change, treat me with the same respect. 2. We're scored based on speed, fill out checks or count out your ridiculous amounts of change/ones BEFORE I hit total. 3. If I'm not cheerful enough, it may be because you were rude first. Granted, some are just complete sourpusses and shouldn't work retail. 4. If you have reusable bags, put them on the belt first. Don't wait until we have half of your order bagged to mention them. Also, don't be a witch if it takes a bit to rebag it because of your mistake. 5. Don't talk down to us, be rude, or a general PITA if you want things to go smoothly. I don't, but some cashiers will purposely double scan or mess up your bags in retaliation. This happened more when I worked at Walmart than my current gig. Not a pet peeve, but if you're nice we will be more likely to bend the rules (I.E. accepting an expired coupon, discounting an item, or bending rules regarding a return). Throwing a hissy fit, being obnoxious or asking for a manager will usually make them purposely go slower/make you work for what you want.
