put the money in my hand


so i work at sears and have worked there for far too long. retail sucks the life out of anyone that works in it. i am no exception. some people have no respect for those that work in the retail industry. i ring people up for their purchases and most people pay with a credit card, sign, and i hand them the receipt and that's it. i probably wont remember their faces when they come back into sears. but on occasion some pay with cash which is fine, but some people throw their money on the counter as if im not right in front of them with my hand ready to take their money. really? whats the deal? are you just too lazy to raise and extend your arm to drop your money into my hand a few extra inches? come on. show some respect. or ill spit on your change before i give it back to you. its your choice.

In Japan is it rude to physically hand money from one person to the next. So, typically, the cashier has something to hold the money that the customer will put it in, the cashier will then take the money out of the container. Hands are not meant to touch...who knows where the other persons hand has been.

What I'm trying to say is, its not all that rude to put the money on the counter and not your hands.

Okay when I worked at Abercrombie that bothered me as well! I expressed my annoyance with a few co-workers and they never understood why i thought it was rude to not directly hand the money to me. Sometimes i would stare at the cash at the counter making it really awkward for the shopper, until they realized i was not about to raise an extra finger for a lousy $7.50 and hour.
