    Can somebody please explain why idiots put useless spam on Smartcanucks? I cannot see any financial (or other) gain from it. It may be a waste of my time looking at the post, but a big waste of their time creating an account and then posting....
    I will keep pressing the little triangle to reporting it.

    Brand new coworker who seem to think she can do my job better than I can and creates drama that the boss doesn't seem to see. A small plus as a result of this situation - it brought a couple of other previously distant coworkers and me closer together because of this shared dilema.

    Just wondering if the grocery stores stock pile items or just purchase few cases ..apparently here sales start on Thursday morning and time I get there after work itís all gone ..then you ask if thereís any here they say next lot will be here on Friday when the truck gets here .so it just might not be greedy people after all ..just saying

    I usually steer away from doing this but I need to...

    I have Social Anxiety. Sometimes I can manage and sometimes it's bad.

    Today was bad. I was not into it. I was not into shopping for my son's School food. I wanted in and out. The shopping part was fine. Then I get to the line. This is where i usually lose it inside my mind. Long lineups make me feel claustro to the max. Anyhow the line was quick. great. It was no frills so i expect to have to bag my own. That was fine. she even opened a new belt for me on the other side so i wouldnt have that crazy pressure of having to rush. But then we get to pay and she asks if i have PC optimum or whatever. I tell her no, i dont shop here often, which i dont, and go to pay. she offers the card, i say no thank you and then she went on to explain how much i would benefit which is fine, they have to do that, and i decline again. now there is a lineup behind me and i am not okay..my attack mode is in full swing. ive got people now behind me 5 strong, pushing me and barely letting me get to the debit machine to pay. had some old lady digging her cart into my foot. Cashier keeps talking and wants me to take a brochure for optimum points. i barely gather the strength and mental where- withall to bag my food and hightail it to my car where i had to do the 5-4-3-2-1 breathe exercise...

    Anyone reading this that works retail...i get it, we all have to do sales pitches...some people....if they say no and arent interested and look like they want to get the f out of there....listen....

    Walmart offering you the credit card is MUCH worse. They go from nice to rude and basically fling your items in pickup area if you decline this MC that charges about 20%. No thanks!!!

    i have a similar cashier story at the walmart in stoney creek. the guy ringing in my stuff commented on almost EVERY item. this really slowed down the prosess, he was sweet as pie but omg..i cant imagine he will last very long at his job.

    i was a waitress for 10 yrs so i can relate to jobs dealing with people...

    I had one cashier, don't remember which store, she's friends with the customer ahead of me.
    They have a conversation, now it's my turn, still talking to the customer as she was bagging.
    Like, hey, concentrate on my order, please.

    rant to chapters/indigo, priced out a book online looking for the best deal, they had it listed the cheapest (without having to go out to costco or order on amazon and find a secondary item for a buck to get the free shipping) only to go into the store get to the till and it's $10 MORE in store then online.. and they do not match their online store prices.. it's the same company!

    Plus the self checkouts and pouncing on people for not showing their receipts. Walmart is off the chain now.

    As a former Chapters employee, I know what you speak of. The online channel is separate entity from the store in terms of pricing. I had some conversations with in-store customers wanting the same price as online website had. Had to explain that 24h delivery does not mean next day but 3 business days (allowing 8 business hours per day) from distribution centre to store for pickup too.

    Hope that you find the book engaging after your disappointment over the price in-store.
