Do Your Part to Fight the Long Lines..
I have done my job for nearly 16 years now. I am pretty efficient and have streamlined the process quite well in my humble opinion, so trust me when I say I am doing all that I can to move things along. Here are a few things that you can do to help.
  • If you have receipt, give it to me. Making me hunt through three bags of merchandise for it does not make things go faster.
  • If you don't have a receipt, I am going to ask for your ID. NOW would be a good time to start looking for it. (See I am giving you time to look for it while I process your items so that when I need to input it to finish the return we do not have to wait.) By the way, you may have heard me mention this a few hundred times before, it must be a PHOTO ID and it must be VALID.
  • Do not hand me EVERY receipt from the three years with your 20 or so items that you found while you were cleaning the trunk of your car, attic, garage and closet in the spare bedroom. A little organization on your part goes a LONG WAY to helping speed the process.
  • There is a point in time when whatever it is that you bought belongs to YOU and is no longer eligible for return. That time would be 90 days from the day you bought it. So, NO you cannot return the dress you bought on clearance three years ago. It is yours, if you no longer want it I have a few suggestions... Ebay, Goodwill, The Salvation Army, or the garbage all come to mind.
  • If you just stood in line for 10 minutes waiting to buy money orders, do you think you might have a clue as to what amounts you would like them to be? Recalling from memory is not working for you, might I suggest a list?
  • Since you knew you were buying money orders it would be nice if you had a plan on how you are going to pay for them. It isn't hard, you have two choices, CASH or DEBIT with pin. Nope, sorry we don't take checks or credit cards for these.


This rant was brought to you by the lady who called me stupid on Tuesday. I don't wait on people who call me names, so step aside ma'am, who is next in line?

Take care, I promise a more scrappy themed post tomorrow!

I can't believe someone would call you that! How awful! That's just rude. I had an "experience" with someone at WW today. Hee - my interpretation wouldn't be as good as yours but I might try it on my blog! HA! Sorry someone was so rude to you! The Meanion (as Tracy calls them).
