Customer service or lack of it is really ticking me off lately. When you walk into a store rarely does an employee greet you. The other day I asked an employee where a product was and she actually sighed like I was really putting her out. What really bothers me is when I go to check out and the cashier doesn't talk at all They do not even to tell me my total. Recently I have begun to play a fun game, I stand there silently until the cashier is so uncomfortable that they actually talk and tell me my total. It entertains me at least. It is like a game of chicken to see who will cave and talk first. I win about half the time.
When I go somewhere and the employees are friendly and helpful, it seems unusual. It just is sad. Doesn't anyone teach customer service skills anymore?
