Hi guys, just a fun post here – I painstakingly scoured the net for you and pulled together (and also created) some memes that feature the most annoying, most repeated and most loathed things you hear working in Retail. Enjoy!

brought my own bags retail customer
I remember the terror of hearing this.. I’m glad you’re happy about it, because it’s going to take me 10X longer to check you out because those stupid things never stand up right and flop all over the place

do you work here dumb retail customer questions
No I don’t work here, I just like to walk around in the uniform


where are the eggs customer queries the future rich
It should be law that all big supermarkets have a huge sign in the entrance that stipulates where the eggs, milk and bread is, to save retail workers the pain of this question


rude customers the future rich
Because the register is now closed, there is no money in the til and because you were rude and decided to keep shopping after being told repeatedly the store was closing. (Credit: Woolworths Memes Facebook group)

This is heard so often people must have nightmares about it. Sound often accompanied by “These machines are stealing your jobs!!” from customers that are using them. (credit: 9Gag)

There you have it people. I’m sure a lot of you can relate to some of these.

    LOL I always get asked the price of the cheapest smokes, if smokers are so worried about the price of cigarettes they should just quit!

    Do you have a spam issue on this site; I also am
    a blogger, and I was curious about your situation; we have developed some nice methods and we
    are looking to swap methods with other folks, be sure to shoot me an e-mail if interested.
