Well, today....there were only 2 workers in my department me and another guy....so there was no way I could get out of dealing with customers. Shall we begin?
Customer 1:Excuse me mam, do you all sell turkey roast?
Me:0__o Um.....I don't think we have turkey roast...but I'll ask. *walks over to my coworker* Hey do we have turkey roast?
Coworker:We have turkey breast.
Customer 1:I need turkey roast.
Coworker:There's no such thing as turkey roast.
Customer 1:Well it says (pointing to his phone, I'm guessing a shopping list made by his wife) turkey roast.
Coworker:*shakes head* Well we have turkey breast. That's about it.
Customer 1:Alright, whatever. I know they got it at Giant Eagle (another grocery store)
Coworker:*looks at me* there's no such thing as turkey roast. People ask shit like that all the time. Turkey roast...turkey chops. I don't know where the hell he's gonna find that.....cause it don't exist.
In my head I'm thinking....well why didn't you just go to Giant Eagle....instead of arguing with a Meat Butcher about what type of meat exists and doesn't exist. I'm pretty sure he knows what he's talking about. Probably because Giant Eagle told yo ass the same damn thing.
(A group of 3 Asian women, and 1 white mean walk over to the ribs. It's very common that Asians buy our ribs and get the cut to put in soup.)
Customer(s) 2:Hi, can we get this rib.
Me:Yes. You want it cut?
Me:*goes to cut the ribs, and then hands them the rib*.
5 minutes later...they walk back.
Customer(s) 2:Can we also get a rabbit. We want a small one.
Me:*I grab the rabbit....I price it.*
Customer(s) 3:Actually she wants a bigger one. Sorry.
Me:*grabs a bigger rabbit...and prices it.
Customer(s) 3:Can you guys cut it?
Me:No, we don't do that. You have to do that yourself.
They alk away...then the white man with them....walks over and asks again.....
Him:You guys don't cut these?
Him:Are you sure? Is there a butcher here?
Me:There is a butcher here....but we don't cut these.
Him:Let me speak to the butcher.
Me:*calls over my coworker*
Him:Would you be able to cut these?
Coworker:No. We don't cut these.
This whole time.....that's exactly what I said. Did you not believe me? Do I not have a uniform on saying that I work here? That I know what happens and what doesn't happen?
I'm getting angry, just thinking about these stories....shit. Annoying customers make life miserable.
