Please help me...as I have posted before I work some hours as a grocery cashier and it can get tiresome and frustrating. I have noticed some people are so positive so I am trying to help others do this as well and "have my co workers backs" but some of the young girls just complain about everything. Today one of my girls was just so upset that she had to stand up for three hours straight without a break I mean good grief...and without an education most of these complaining girls don't have much of a prospect. Not to label, but, it seems like this is where the majority of the complaints come from and I don't know why

Good point. I think I am going to just take the positive and leave the rest behind.

It's the best way to go. Just try to tune them out.

Oh goody! A fellow cashier!

We have those girls too..Usually little teenie-bopper teenagers..they dont usually last very long. Our shifts run from 4-5 hours straight on your feet with no break (depends on the length of the shift of course). Ive had some of them complain to me...My response is "Pft...waaah....poor baby" in a sarcastic tone....they get the hint.

They live in Northern NH and better realize it's probably the best job they will ever have.

Standing for three hours straight? Yes, I've known of those who complain of having a job laying on their backs for three hours straight, too, making a hundred dollars an hour.
