The One True TheDavid: An occasional blowjob would be nice, but I don't the service provider to pretend she really loves her job or my willy is so big or anything like that. So if Target set up glory holes they'd see much more of me, even if I had to use a loyalty card and pay a special surcharge.


Target will not be the first company to do this, they'll just be the first company to introduce it at mass market prices in an environment that makes soccer moms feel comfortable.

You know, you could just not be a raging prick and say "No, I don't need any help, thank you."

Then understand that when you go shopping, you may have to wait in line, deal with other people, accept the fact that the world doesn't revolve around you and your needs.

What's funny is that the same people who complain about waiting in line often stare slack-jawed at the nutrition facts on a bag of cheetos for 20 minutes, preventing other people from shopping or employees from working.

Get over yourself. When they say hello, or ask if you need help, it wouldn't kill you to be farking polite. They're not trying to be your friend, they're trying to not get fired.

I can't stand the use of the word "guest" over "customer". One of my kids worked at Target and got called on the carpet for using "the c word".

What the fark?

The comments from TFA are why I hate working with customers. Because customers, on the whole, are assholes.

"I don't see any problem here. Is it now "torture" to train employees to be polite to customers and try to give them a positive experience when shopping at your store?"

"Yes, let's mock them for actually trying to promote good customer service in their stores. The monsters!"

"As crappy and lame as it all sounds, I wonder what the people in the "Unemployment Stories" series would think about a job like this. "

Fark these people right in the ear.

brigid_fitch: And they were told to treat the customers as though they had just gotten off work and were just looking to get shiat done before heading home--because that's what 90% of the customers were.


BRILLIANT.

Too bad most executives can't admit that people don't come to store X just to be at store X. Store X is a means to an end- obtaining the products that are sold there. The more store X can help people get the products they want, the easier life will be for their shoppers. Instead, they try to make shopping at store X some kind of experience as though obtaining the products sold are just an irrelevance.

When I go to Walmart, Target, or wherever, I'm not there because I get warm fuzzy feelings from being there. It's because I want what is sold there. Trying to push some kind of undesired experience on the shopper is destined to fail because that's not what the shopper actually wants.

Worked at a home depot in the hardware department many moons ago. Before my first day, I wondered what the hell I would be doing all day. I figured most people know what they want, and you could just point them to the product, and let them get on their way.

Not even close. 90% of the customers want to be led around by the hand. And talk, and talk, and talk, and talk some more.

Biggest surprise? The guys are the chatty ones. I guess they needed some male bonding or some such crap. 

Oh, and you anti-social basement dwellers with the cheeto stained fingers who just wanted to be left alone? You're easy to spot, and we left you alone.

I have noticed they are a bit more aggresive now at HD then they were when I worked there, but I prefer that to spending 10 minutes trying to hunt one down. A simple "no thanks, I'm fine" and they just move on.

That pisses me off too. I worked at a Menard's (hardware store), and the guy training me said, "We don't call them customers. We call them 'guests'.

A million years ago when I was 19, I worked at Denny's for about 2 days. I quit after 2 days because they literally wanted me to memorize the "Denny's Dogma". Seriously. Dogma is not a word I would ever use in the same sentence as "Denny's". Plus the manager seemed to be embalmed without knowing it. Smelled like a mix of cigarettes, formaldehyde and bug spray.

BMFPitt: Here's what I consider an amazing retail experience: Don't bother me unless I come to you first. Have enough people working checkout to get me done fast.


Exactly; this is why Amazon.com is beating stores like Target. I type in what I want, and if they have it in stock, it pops up on my screen. I check out immediately and go about my life -- especially with Amazon Prime, which I was converted to by Fark.

If I am in a store like Target, I want to buy a bunch of crap for my house like cat litter and cleaning supplies and aluminum foil as quickly and cheaply as possible. I don't want to make friends, I don't want to chat, and i don't think I am a "guest." I'm a customer in a store and I just want to buy the necessities and carry on with my life. Odds are I just worked 8-9 hours, plus the commute time, and would really like to get home, make dinner and maybe watch some TV with my boyfriend before we pass out for the night and do it all again the next day.

Hence, why Amazon.com is doing so well. I did virtually all my Christmas shopping there last year and probably will do the same thing again this year. It's easier, nobody bothers me, and most importantly, it saves a lot of time.

You invite a guest to come in and take your shiat and leave. You ask a customer to come in and give you their money. A very important distinction in business.

I'd guarantee a lot, but those types tend to take up at least 6-8 feet of shelf space with their cart, jazzy scooter, 3 or 4 screaming children, and hopeless spouse.

If they're doing that, their sexually frustrated manager is probably micro-managing the shiat out of them in-between their cigarette breaks.

As a survivor of the Carl's Jr. "If it doesn't get all over the place, it doesn't belong in your face"
marketing campaign of 20 years ago, I am laughing a subtle and sarcastic laugh right now. Yes, we were expected to use the phrase seriously, use it as a condiment philosophy (drowning everybody's orders in shiatty sauce whether they like it or not), and shout it excitedly at the end of staff metings with the district manager. He went away somewhat disappointed, but the business is sill there and doing just fine without that particular BS.

Either that, or I understand that the "corporate drone" is actually a human being with a personality doing what they have to do to earn a living.

If that's how you categorize people, I assume you must work for some sort of large company with scripted greetings.

Damn skippy.

I *know* I'm welcome in retail establishments during regular business hours. It's because I have some got-damned money and might trade some for some of the products offered for sale in the establishment. I don't give a shiat whether you call me a customer, guest, or whatever the hell else so long as it isn't profane. I KNOW you want me in there... you wouldn't run a damn store if you didn't like people walking in to spend money.

Instead of thinking up new things to call me and people like me, why not spend that time thinking up what I might like to buy and how you can simplify the process of me doing exactly that?

In one retail shop I worked, when sales were low, the bosses came in and checked out the store, often they would move items around. One day a boss came in, moved a bunch of items around, and told us how it would make sales go up. Two hours later, another boss arrived, he suggested *suprise* we move a few items around. Me, being the smart-ass I am, suggested moving all the items back to where they were before the first boss came in. Being that he didn't know anything about the first boss coming in, he still gave me the "THIS is how we want the store to look for you to be successful here" speech.


It's strange how none of these assholes will ever admit: sometimes,sales go down, naturally, no matter what you do. Unless your selling oil or pussy; demand (thus sales) sometimes goes down, and even those two industries have some flux. But if you bring this up to someone working for a major corporation in middle/upper management, they look at you like your from Mars or something....because anything other than the 'I love selling widgets and will sell more widgets every minute I breathe' corporate philosophy is seen as blasphemy.

You pretty much nailed it. Is the store open? Do I have money to spend? Yes? Then I know they want me there. I am never going to feel "at home" in any store, nor is anyone who has an actual home they like to spend time in. I understand you don't want a shopping experience to be actively unpleasant, but have they ever asked real people what makes a great trip to the store? I bet most people would say they didn't have to wait in a long line, they were able to find what they wanted, and the store wasn't a disgusting mess. Nobody is ever going to say "well, I heard a cashier call me a customer and I really wanted to feel as if I were a guest, so I'm not coming back here." But they will say "there were 20 registers and two of them were open, while the lines grew longer by the minute and it was 6:00, so people were filing in for the after work rush and nobody seemed to care so I am not coming back here again."

It's really not rocket science.

This is why I like Target. Wal-Mart is a bit cheaper, but smells bad and makes me loathe humanity a bit more each time I go. Target, at least has nice wide isles and some sense as to what "clean" means, plus half the women at Target are look-able. They hire a few too many hipsters but that is what young people are now days.

Actually, if Target wants to make shopping a little easier, they should have smocks or some type of uniform other than "Wear khakis and a red shirt". Some regular people wear that same outfit and, if they wander into a Target, I'll assume they work there.

Unless the big box stores can work together (ie: pay off congress) to get them to put massive "user fees" (ie: taxes) on sites like Amazon, Newegg....the only thing a big box store will be good for is window shopping. Holding an item, seeing if you like it, then grab your smartphone or tablet while still in the store and order it on the web and have it delivered usually the next 2-3 days much CHEAPER than buying it then in the store.

Let's see...I worked at a 7-11 for a couple of years while I was in high school but that wasn't a big deal. Standing behind a counter & ringing stuff up for 8 hours/day is nothing. I worked at TJ Maxx for one day--HATED IT. Punched out and never went back. People don't ask you a lot of questions at a 7-11. They don't ask you to get stuff down off shelves, if you can match a price, or if you're hiding anything in the back. In one day, I discovered I do NOT have the personality to handle the general public--no patience.

The only other time I worked retail was this past summer at a little candle/gift shop on the weekends. That was actually kind of fun since it was never really busy and I honestly liked the products. And the people who came in were either browsers killing time on their way home from the beach or people who knew the store and had a good idea of what they wanted. Zero pressure in that store.

A while ago Wells Fargo started what I call the "New Niceness". While depositing a check they will attempt to engage you in all matters of polite small talk. I just want to leap over the counter and choke the living niceness out of them.

/just deposit the damn thing and shut the fark up


Yes, WF very much guilty of that. I termed it "new unctuousness" when I noticed it last year.

This will only come as a surprise to those that have never walked into a Target, let alone ever worked there. This place is a farking cult.

I think the TotalFark fundraiser to help Chafed Willi, who lost his job by criticizing his employer on Fark from his cubicle, will go very well.

Seems like they do that at The Home Depot a lot.

This. If I want your help I'll ask, otherwise stay the fark away from me. I've taken to just completely ignoring the clerks at Home Depot, I'll look thru them like they aren't even there. My favorite is always the staff at record/book stores. "Do you need some help?: "No, I've pretty much mastered the goddamn alphabet already"...


You prefer it when I don't acknowledge your existence or identify myself as a store employee? You're my favorite, too.

ChrisDe: As a consumer, I'm insulted when I think the customer service agent is reading from a script. Stop it, Target.


This!

The Safeway cecker futilely scanning my receipt for my name so they "personalize" my experience - ugh!
