So, a week or so ago, I included this on one of my postings: "I checked out at Target on Tuesday and the cashier said when I was leaving "great job on the use of your coupons"...what? I about tripped over myself as my head spun around to make sure I memorized her face for use with future cashier profiling!"
Several of you commented... and made me laugh!
Now I want to follow up. I went to Target on Saturday night and guess who was working? You guessed it! My photographic memory recognized her right away!
Keep in mind I don't use coupons for items which I don't have the product. So, cashier profiling is only to get a cashier who is friendly and doesn't look at me like I'm robbing a bank.
My total before any Q's, etc was $108.22...my OOP was $19.82. Now, that does include a $50 Target GC I received from one of the rewards/points programs, so esentially, my OOP really was $19.82. That included 35# of sugar on clearance, 3 packages of pork loin chops on clearance, 32# of cat food, 6 packages of Zyrtec, etc, etc.
The cashier did compliment me again on using my coupons to my best benefit! Wasn't that sweet?
Now, what I got to wondering later is...how did she get thru the Target interview process? You know the first questions they ask are:
1. Do you use coupons? If the answer is "yes", they are history.
2. Are you nice or will you be nice to people who use coupons? Answer: "yes"...gone.
3. Are you helpful and friendly to people who use coupons? Answer: "yes" - see ya! Out the door you go.
4. As a cashier, will you always be right and the customer using coupons always wrong? Answer: "yes"...you may have a future at Target.
5. When people use coupons, do you think they are trying to "get away with something" or do you equate it to robbing a bank? Answer: "yes" - move to Interview #2...closer to being hired as a new Target cashier!
Somehow she got thru the process...there may be hope for Target yet!
