bad_service

let me try this again..

my local Publix usually has some amazing service, so I was a bit taken back at the rude cashier I encountered today.

I went to Publix today to pick up some crackers & ice cream. I'm on a budget, so I looked for sales. luckily they had club crackers on sale, buy one get one free. Breyer's ice cream was 2 half gallons for $6.

I got in line.. the cashier began to ring up my stuff, and then said in a very Daria-like monotone voice "how are you". I can't complain though because at least she did say it (unlike the dollar store clerk I encountered the other day). she rang up my items, and I got confused for a second and said "aren't the Breyers 2 for 1?".. I got them mixed up with the sale on the crackers.

all of a sudden she snaps at me. literally.. she rolled her eyes at me and said "UH, NO. it's 2 for $6".

you just should have heard the way she said it. I said "oh, yeah, I'm sorry".. she then tosses my ice cream into a bag. again.. if you would have seen it. she dented the carton. she thrusts my receipt at me, rolls her eyes again, and says "have a good day".

it's not a huge deal, but woah.. if you have a bad day, don't take it out on me. I just thought that was uncalled for.

ps: I know that this is not omgztheworstserviceever.. and I deleted my post originally because obviously some people thought I was being petty. however, let me note that not only did she have a VERY rude tone, she TOSSED my ice cream in the bag and rolled her eyes at me twice. I'd say that's a little more than the every day mediocre bland "omg I hate my job" tempered employee.
