Hi, this is sort of a wierd thread to start, but I’m just curious about how people feel about a couple of things.
I am a cashier in a grocery store and I notice rude things on both sides of the redgester that can make a day frustrating for everyone.
one example are cellphones. People come in my line talking away on their phone and don’t say two words to me. I am very friendly and like to talk with my customers. It’s hard to be a good Christian when this is my pet peve. I try not to get upset, but I find myself doing one of two things when these people come through my line;
- I completely ignore them. hand them their change and don’t say a word. don’t ask them if they want plastic don’t tell them their total, etc.
- I aske them a zillion questions to interupt their conversation. I ask them if they want plastic, if they found everything they were looking for, if they want their change broken up any certain way, if they have any cupons, if they have their Upromise card. I find any question that we are supposed to ask the customer and I ask it as loud as I can.
I am SURE I am not doing the right thing here. I just want them to know that I’m a human and deserve a little attention. what would be a better christian way to handle this?
