I think the biggest thing about morons in the parkinglot is prolly more than half want to park "get in and get out" kind of deal!! Kinda like going to the store for a pack of butts.....u have a specific agenda and want to get it done.....thats where I can see people driving like idiots!! That and half the people that go there are on welfare....so what else can they lose

Have you guys ever seen the people that circle the lot untill the can park next to the door? I have parked at the end of the lot, walked up to the doors, done my shopping and got out... Meanwhile that same idiot is still circling the parking lot trying to steal a spot... all they have to do is walk 100 ft... Its not that bad...

first and foremost: i hate target as much, if not more, than walmart. target associates will have have, literally, run from me. i had to chase one down to ask a question. and i work in retail, ive worked in retail for 5 years. i understand the issues that people working in retail have, but come on. I am the reason youre there when im shopping, show me some damn respect. parking lots... just take a spot already. it wont kill you to take 4 more steps. i may kill you if you keep circling. the FIRE LANE is not a ONLY YOU CAN PARK HERE LANE. FIRE LANE means do not park here. if youre parked there and i need by, i will not go around (unless youre a cop). instead, i will stay behind you and honk. i will honk until those security people walmart employs investigate and tell you to move on. i dont care if you wave me off, i wont go. move your car and find a parking spot like everyone else. um.. what else... i find it interesting walmarts vests say "How may I help you?" on the back of them, on the BACK. means they are walking away from you for you to see it.
oh, handicapped spaces and wheelchairs are for THE PHYSICALLY DISABLED, not for you because youre fat. walk some of that fat off by walking the couple extra feet to the door and walking through the store.

I look at it this way... Yes you the customer are the reason I have a Job, and the reason my store makes an 8,000,000 profit...

In the past I have had the most pleasant and polite customers, I have always gone well beyond what was expected of me to make sure I got or found them what they were looking for even if it was at a store 30 miles away... I have even told the customer I didn't have the item on the shelf but knew where it was located, but it was burried and if they could come back in a couple of hours I would have it ready for them... It was amazing to see the response you get from most of the people when you supprise them.. That was sure a way to keep a customer...

But I have also had the ones that told me " your a liar " after explaining to them that we did not have the item as it was out of stock at the ware house... Then to hear "you just don't want to go get it for because your lazy" " I'm gonna get management and have you fired ".... I told that customer to go to customer service and they will happily get a manager for you, and in case you havent noticed my name is Don, make sure they know that...lol.... Later management came to me and said " you wouldn't believe what a cusomer had to say about you, but we know you better than that...

On the same note, there were a battery of customers that had nothing but good to say about me, I used to get a little feedback from time to time from my manager...

you know, i have about the same stories thats awesome.

(an example, today im driving from norman to edmond on my day off to transfer a necklace and a pair of earrings for a customer. a lot of my customers know me by name and ask specifically for me, regardless of the fact im an hourly employee and do not work on commission). i always go out of my way to help a customer out, after all, im an hourly employee and im therefor the same length of time regardless. i may as well spend my time helping someone out. couple customers insult me and dont believe me, a couple of customers have even accused me of descriminating against them because their [insert adjective here]. my favorite story: (i work in the jewelry department, and if we arent busy, we ring up other people that dont have very many items)

id just got through ringing a customer up that had a greeting card, then i got slammed with jewelry customers. i helped the jewelry customers out (they have priority - this is the jewelry counter) and while i was doing that, a very large woman came up, interrupted me and the customer i was helping, and told me i was going to ring her up. i explained that i was helping out the jewelry customers, but if shed wait, id ring her up when i got a chance, but itd be shorter just to get in line. she insisted i was going to ring her up right then, i said i have to ring up the people in front of her in line. she insisted i had no line, she was the next customer in line and i should help her out right then. at this point, im pissed. i told her that if she wants to be rang up immediately, she can walk back to customer service and they will ring her up then, but i have to assist the jewelry customers first and id be with her as soon as i could, or she can get in line at the registers. she got pissed too and stalked off. about 30 minuted later, my manager came up and said "DId you tell a woman you wouldnt ring her up because she was fat?" i laughed and said no, then explained the situation i though he was talking about.
what the bloody hell. becuase she was fat? the only thing i can think of, her friend that i rang up (with the greeting card) was thin, and she wasnt.

It gets amazing at the lengths people will go to get their way...lol

One time I had a very rude customer( store was short on cashiers so I got plucked from my department )... Customer told me I was not fast enough for her... I replied " I'm a sales assoiate not a cashier, I don't do this very often so please bare with me.. She didn't like that... The other customers and I were joking a little at how a Multi billion $$$$ company can't have enough cashiers for the rush...lol... She started to curss at me, I told here there was no need for that as I was finishing bagging her crapp( it was more than 20 items ).... A couple of the customers behind her told her that she needed to lighten up... She said something smart, one said well than you can shop elsewhere can't you instead of being a ***** and wasting our time... Look around you, did you really think you were going anywhere that fast right in the middle of the 3 O'Clock rush...

She left in a huff... My self and the other customers just laughed and I proceded to check the rest of them out...

I love it when customers have something to say to other customers

Was in a Target in Florida and every Target employee I passed, at least 10, dropped what ever they were doing and asked my wife and I if we needed any help, or if we were finding everything we were looking for. And we weren't even looking lost or confused, just behaving like any NORMAL (keyword) person would when shopping.
But they kept coming like freaking zombies or something. eventually I had enough and just went to the check out with what we had because I wanted to get the hell out of there.

Correct. I'm fat (5'8" 230lbs) and I park at the end of the lot not only to walk, but to keep my car from getting dented up. I hate when I see fat people like me circle the lot over and over and over and over and over until they find a spot 5 feet closer to the door. People need to just park and walk to the damn door.
