I have nearly 2 years experience working as a bag boy/cart pusher/checker at this one grocery store. It can get interesting but mostly with the customers who get angry/annoyed.
Recently (two months ago) we had to start using the chip readers for any card that has a chip. And at our store, if you have a debit card, you MUST put your PIN now. Which I wouldn't think is that hard.
But STILL, two months later, we get many people every day who complain to us about it. Here's how the conversation goes:
Customer reaches the PIN entering part: "What if I wanna use credit?"
Me: "Is it a debit card?"
Customer: "It's a credit and debit card". [Getting noticeably pissed]
Me: "It's a debit card. If it's a debit card you have to use the PIN."
Customer: "I don't know the PIN/that's not how it is at this other store/I was just here yesterday and it worked [which is a blatant lie because it's been two months]."
Seriously people, you think the cashier has control over this shit? Grow the fuck up. If you ever do shit like this in retail stores, go fuck yourself with a cactus.0
