After working as a cashier for almost seven years, I’ve experienced my fair share of rude customers. Whoever said, “The customer is always right” could not have been more wrong. In fact, the customer is often wrong, especially when they feel the need to be disrespectful to the employees who are serving them and the other customers around them. During my time as a cashier I experienced many forms of harassment, with customers making nasty comments about my appearance and screaming and shouting at me because I wouldn’t return a pair of pants they had purchased four years ago—oh the stories I could tell!
A young man with a disability worked as a bagger in his local grocery store, and one day while working, he experienced an extremely rude and disrespectful customer who had an issue with the speed in which he was bagging groceries. Her comments towards this man were unbelievably rude, and she even went as far as using the “r” word to describe him. However, the cashier’s response to this terrible woman’s actions deserve a round of applause!
What do you think? Did the cashier do the right thing?
