I hope this was supposed to have been a thought bubble

Otherwise, if this strip is even remotely centered in reality, Marla’s a cashier at A&P by next week.

Just for the record, I have had credit cards go through on a third try

Cidu Bill on Oct 1st 2017

I’m sure some of you have noticed this, but Grumbels employees’ contempt for their customers really annoys me sometimes.

Missy, you’re not doing the customer a favor by “letting” her run the card through a third time.

And actually, the “doing it wrong” line is a mystery to me, unless it’s just a set-up for the employee to think “The only thing I did wrong was…”

I Need Help

This seems like the opposite of the Retail staple of the customer getting upset because clerks are asking him “May I help you?”, but at least those I understand what’s going on.

Because they don’t burst when softly tossed at somebody’s face from a short distance?

If so, what what really puzzles me is that Marla is agreeing with the customer rather than internalizing some “all customers are idiots” thought.

Gift Boxes

If the clerk meant “what size box do you need?” she should have asked that.

Otherwise, I’m becoming more and more convinced this is the kind of store that makes me want to use Amazon.

The constant message here seems to be “The customer is always a moron.”

Honestly, I’d be firing people right and left, even if Norm Feuti would have us think of their actions and comments as clever.
