Why men should never go grocery shopping

Having worked in a grocery store for a long time I have come to the conclusion that men should not shop there.
I know that sounds funny coming from me-lol.

About 10 years ago a Navy dude came in and got his stuff- paid for it and left.
Thirty minutes later he returned and said "You didn't take my coupons off."
I said "You didn't give me any coupons."
His reply was "Oh- was I supposed to give them to you ?"
(And these are the people we send to war?!)

Another instance- I was on the express lane, and some smart ass said "I sure wish you would open up the express lane."
I said "You are on the express lane...." and then I pointed up at the BIG express lane sign and said "....there's your sign!"

I should have offered him some smart pills, but he would probably have stuck them in his butt.

I share your pain. I work in the wonderful world of retail, and I would say that customer stupidity is probably the biggest challenge all retial employees must overcome.

I share your pain. I work in the wonderful world of retail, and customer stupidity is easily the biggest hurdle everyday. My favorite:

Customer: Do you have any picture books of dinosaurs?
Me: Yes, let me show you...
Upon being shown the book with drawings and paintings of various dinosaurs, customer says: No, I mean one with photographs!"
You can substitute angles, demons, and Shakespeare in place of dinosaurs-I've heard all of them.

I second Ted's remark.
