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

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'm sure that your cat appreciated the warm welcome

your cat just need to pick up its prescription

I think it may be time for you to get a new job

Why? It's not like the op said they hate their job, they just been working lots during the season. Maybe the op really likes their job.

As a fellow cashier who works the night shift, I find myself saying "have a good night" to people I talk to during the day way to often.

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.

I used to do the same thing. now I just say "enjoy the rest of your day."

I told a customer 'hi" as they were leaving the store

When I'm on overnights at work, I say have a great day, but then I realize that they're going home, eat their food and go to bed. Yay for working in fast food.

I remember answering my home phone "Waldenbooks and More!" Confused the person on the other end.

that must have been an awkward one to explain

Same! I work at a call center and so many times I've answered my cell phone "thank you for calling customer service".

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

I folded all of my clothes as if I was at work- from doing floor sets for Victoria's Secret for about 6 months after I left.

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.

I use to work at walgreens, I know that feel bro.
