Today, I finally realized the toll working as a cashier 5 days a week during the holidays does to your psyche. I just said "Welcome To Walgreens", out of pure reflex, to my cat as she walked into my kitchen. FML
Deweyboy tells us more :
Hey guys, OP Here. I don't hate my job. My boss works awesomely with my schedule, I make a ton of money, and I work with a bunch of good people. I try my best to welcome everyone who comes in when I'm at the lead register, but my store can get about 8-900 customers a day, so my welcomes can be a little reflexive. I had just gotten up that morning, after working a 9 hour shift the night before, with a 7 hour shift ahead of me. I heard the cat push the door open, and I said it half-asleep with my siblings all around the table.

I work varied shifts, but tend to work mostly afternoons/evenings. Every once in a while I will get a morning shift and I will end up saying "Have a good day or whatever it is." They usually end up laughing.

When I was working at a call center I once asked the cashier at the dollar store if there was anything else I could assist her with as we were ending the transaction. I guy who worked with me checked the availability of his eggs once (we booked hotel rooms) it gets to be automatic


Seriously though. After working where I do now, I fold all of my shirts the way we quarter-fold them at work. I will even "edge" them so that they are lined up straight and the front edge out of habit.
