I feel as though a lesson in etiquette is needed for those who frequently deal with customer service workers. My advice is based on my own personal experience plus friends/family.
1. Don’t take your bad day out on customer service workers. They could’ve had a bad day too and if they took it out on you, you would have a problem with that.
2. Please stop with the superiority complex. You never know what education, accolades, and experience that person has.
3. Don’t yell at a c.s. worker for something out of their control. I’m sure if we could control prices, we would also control our pay.
4. Don’t be disrespectful. Acknowledge your cashier, have your money ready, HAND it to the cashier, and thank them.
5. Don’t get an attitude because a cashier can’t cash big bills. When you work in c.s. you are pretty limited when it comes to cash. For the most part our money comes from customers! ASK a cashier if they can actually make change, because you never know when someone‘s shift just started.
6. Don’t go out of your way to make a c.s. worker’s job harder than it is. If they don’t have it, don’t know, or don’t have the authority, say “thank you” and leave.
