Several years ago I shopped at Rite Aide on Valentines day. An elderly woman was pretty much manning one check out stand. I bought the things I had come to the store for and was standing in line six before me. waiting to check out. Suddenly the plump woman in the overly tight pink suit raised her voice and the grey haired cashier was turning red. The fat woman was literally screaming" That price for a valentine maam is stupid .you gotta be kidding me.Check your prices again." The cashier tried to tell her that wa the correct price. The fat ladie's jowls wobbled as she yelled" get the manager you silly bad word bad word." I was appalled at her languageand now there was five behind ,me. The manager had heard the fat lady and came at once. The cashier ran past me tears streaming down her face. I stepped out of line as I knew her and she was a very smart capable woman. "Helen" I said." why on earth are you working here? You are a R. N look my doctor's office is looking for a nurse." She nodded , got her coat and we walked out together. I had left m y purchases there after that scene. I checked the next week as I had a doctor;'s appt and she was working as his nurse. Why do people insist on blaming the check out person for the prices on items n the store? After all they did not price them I learned that it takes a special person to handle mean customers in the drug store with nerves of steel. Of course those kinds of customers are not the majorty thank Goodness for that.
