I feel the same way. I don't want to know everyone's life story. I'm perfectly fine with a quick "Hello, how are you" and then let them concentrate on ringing up my purchase as quickly and accurately as possible.

LOL...I could live with that myself if I didn't have customers who, pretty much, demand that I be friendly, personable and not grumpy. lol I had one customer who complained to my CSM that I didn't talk to her. Really! Well, I DID talk to her, she ignored me, I had a line back to dairy so I just concentrated on getting it done. Then, when it was time to pay, she had her cash laid out of the shelf and when I counted it she was $3 short. I told her and she got mad telling me that I should have TOLD her the total and she didn't feel she had to look at the scanner to see what it was. Well, I always tell them their total but that time I didn't because she had the money out so I 'assumed' she knew what it was and why be redundant? She even had the exact coin change. lol Anyway, she insisted that she talk to my manager so I directed her to him and told her to have a nice day. I can pretty much tell which ones are up to a little small talk and who isn't but I try to get the 'grumpy' ones to smile or laugh at least once before they leave.

I don't want everyone's life story either. I do have a few customers I've come to know over the years and I know more than I want to know about them and their "life story" but I'm polite about it. They talk and I work. I don't ignore my customers and never say word while I'm scanning but will look up and smile at them once in a while. Or make a comment. Seems to keep them happy. lol


I don't mind asking folks how's their day going, or how are they, but I wish they wouldn't ask ME how I'M doing. A lot of times I'm not doing well with some of my worse 'aches and pains' and really don't feel up to what I'm doing but I have to lie and say "Just great, thank you!". It's probably not a bad thing for me, really, because it keeps me from groveling in my misery and HAVE to stay up and positive. I learned, long ago, that if I say "I'm okay" I get back, "JUST okay?". I tell them, at my age, "okay" is darn good. lol
