The news from Herald Sun yesterday posted a report about Coles, Woolworths and IGA workers vent about customers on Facebook. It also contains links into the groups and comments posted by those supermarket employees on Facebook, their stories and angries. If you haven’t read about it, here is the link:

I read through the posts, which seem to be taken down already today, and they are so funny. I have recorded the following:

I can remember cleaning the deli case, spraying the chux with window cleaner, lifting the glass and wiping over it. This woman made a B line for me.. to tell me that glass cleaner shouldn’t be anywhere near the food. Then she proceeded to feed her kid un washed strawberries from the fresh produce. Go figure???

I used to work in 7-Eleven store for about 4 years when I was studying in the Uni. And I was really sick of serving customers, because lots of them were rude and had no respect to the person who was serving them. Although I did have very nice and adorable customer, they were the minority. The worst day was on Saturday night when full of drunkers came into the store and simply wanted to create troubles. It was like working in the hell.
