I hate when a cashier talks to me about the customer who just left. Makes me wonder if they are going to talk about me after I leave.

A couple of weeks ago I had a cashier chastise me for buying 10 packs of lil debbie valentine cakes. They were on sale and my teenaged beanpole son loves them for his lunches, so I stocked up. I'm not exactly a beanpole, so I guess she felt that she was "fat shaming" me.

I told her I was terminally ill and showed her my giant surgery scar, so I wasn't worried about becoming a type 2 diabetic! I figured that maybe she needed a little "bad manner's shaming"!

The cashier was young (maybe late teens/early twenties) but the bagger HAS to be in his forties, maybe even early fifties??? I know he's been there forever. It didn't really bother me what they said, it just struck me as odd. Like I said, I've never had anyone say anything like that to me before.

Now THIS would cross the line for me, what the heck?!? A bit of retraining or common sense 101 is in order huh?

I get that all of the time when I buy organic milk. I pay $5.48 or so for a gallon (not crappy organic brands like Horizon or store organic brands but a localized brand) and almost every single time the cashier says, "Really? $5 for a gallon of milk? That can't be right...sheesh". I just respond saying that the price is correct and I prefer to purchase items without antibiotics, growth hormones, or pesticides. It gets annoying after a while, and surely I'm not the only person they ever ring up that buys organic milk...I don't get it.

rude!! I would have had some snappy comeback....but probably after I left. ROFL!!! I probably would have said something along the lines of "oh yes, expensive but so worth it for an occasional splurge and I can definitely cook it the "right" way, thanks for your concern" LOL that said, now I want a good steak and shrimp meal!

Most of the time we get small talk, no biggie.

Once someone commented on a bakery item I was buying. They mentioned that they loved it but it was too costly for them.

I took no offense because, really, there are much more offensive things in the world. But it did make me feel weird.

That would suck to pay that kind of money and have them turn out wrong" LOL
I would have said. "I didn't notice the price, I only purchase my dogs food here and he doesn't care how I cook it. I do the shopping for our food at the Whole Foods up the street."

I don't since my wife does the grocery shopping. But she has commented to me that at times the baggers/cashier make a comment when she requests paper over plastic, and double bag them, please.

A comment like that would actually remind me how lucky I am that I could purchase that without it being a hardship, while for others it would be a big expense. I dunno...definitely something they shouldn't say, but I wouldn't be offended. I'd mostly feel sorry that money is tighter for them.

I'd hate to see what they'd do checking someone out who bought steak at Whole Foods.

Now the cashier who commented on the nutrition value of a PP's snack cakes? Ohhhh, heck no! WAY out of line.

DH and I were at our local grocery store looking for some cheese. We could see they had a sign for Manchego, but we couldn't see any. A 20-something worker came over to help us, but was clueless as could be. Then she said, "You like that stuff? I don't like those weird cheeses." Ooooph. Boy, if she thinks Manchego is out there, she has nooooo idea. To this day DH and I will pull that quote out every time we're buying for a cheese tray. But seriously, I'm sure her employer wouldn't appreciate her commentary on products they are trying to sell.

Maybe they don't make much, and have never bought that kind of meat? They might not have been judging, just didn't realize how much meat costs.

That's a good price. I pay $6.99 for a gallon of organic milk.

Horizon cows have 'access' to pastures, but they are in a factory farm and don't get out there. Their cows are constantly hooked up to the milking machines - they produce double the national average of milk. When a cow gets sick they just ship it off to slaughter. They are an awful company that shouldn't be allowed to label their products as organic. They are owned by Dean Foods.
