The fun of using coupons at Walmart

August 31st, 2007 at 04:33 am

Went to walmart because they had splenda on sale.

Got the splenda and a bunch of other items. Nothing outlandish. Got to the cash register and had coupons for 8 of the 11 items I bought.

I wait while the cashier serves the girl ahead of me. She does quickly and pleasantly and then does my order. As I hand her my stack a woman two back in the line does this incredibly loud noise of disapproval and huffs off. I was very very bad and turned and looked at her and said "you'll survive". I know man but gees which barn did she learn her manners in?

The cashier took forever with the coupons as she had to write the price!! on every coupon!!! I apologized to her for this being a bother but that with how much I saved it is like not picking up a $10 bill floating on the ground. I think I had about $12-$13 in coupons - so saved about 20% on my bill.

The cashier was an absolute (abet slow) sweetie. No hassle at all. Said this was her job and didn't mind and kept a smile the entire time.

But man.. its like stores work at putting an obstacle course in your way when you use coupons.

Of course my interac (debit) card took this opportunity not to work and another 5 minutes was spent playing "swipe the card". I guess I'll need to go to the bank today to get a replacement. Being without my interac would be like going naked to work.. it just is too painful to think about.

    I know what you mean about rude people. I was at CVS a few days ago. The asst. mgr. was having problems with my coupons and extabucks, and the lady a few people behind me barked "what's the hold up?!" I just smiled and turned back around. I try not to let people like that bother me. (but they sometimes do). I think you handled yourself well.

    I use self check out when I go to Wal-Mart. Sometimes machines are much smarter than people.

    whenever something like that happens to me, like you're holding up the line, or you get the wrong thing, or your card doesnt swipe (dont worry, its happened to me too!!) i just have to repeat in my head over and over again - don't worry, you're never going to see these people again (ie, the customers you're holding up who are being jackasses). It seems to help, when you realise you don't need to be embarrased. it lifts a bit of weight from your shoulders!
