Cashiers are people too ya know!

Posted on Fri, Aug 12, 2016 at 4:00 AM

I work at a grocery store that recently changed how much it charges for bags. This grocery store is already more expensive than most other food store in Halifax, yet customers are constantly yelling at the cashiers about an extra 25 cents for a bag?  Cashiers are making minimum wage at a job where they're on their feet the whole day; they have NO influence over the store's pricing policies. Getting mad at them and going on and on about exactly why you refuse to pay for a bag or think it's horrible that stores charge for them accomplishes nothing but making your cashier's day just a little bit shittier. You don't want to pay for a bag? Don't take a bag! Or bring your own! —It's really very simple!
