Journal 11: Things you see at Kmart

It’s been three months since I began working at Kmart. As a cashier at one of the biggest retail stores in the United States – and of course, one of the biggest in Puerto Rico as well – I’ve seen a lot of crazy things in a very short period of time. I’ll sum up some of the funniest ones I’ve seen so far:

Do people really need twenty seven six-packs of razor blades? From what I know, hair takes a least a month to growth what, half an inch? My point is hair grows slowly and twenty-seven packs of razors is a lot of razors.

People are so surprised to hear items are not on sale. Normally when an item is on sale, a special tag is placed on the normal price tag, signifying that that specific item is on sale. If there is no tag, the price of the item is the one indicated in the price tag. However, people are annoyingly surprised when they hear something like “the item is regular priced at $19.99”.

I hate the IVUloto so bad. It is the worse idea ever. Not only has it made consumers more addicted to gambling than they already are, but also the degree of impossibility to win is huge. C’mon, IVUloto combinations are like “HJ47P-N975K” or something similar. It was even hard for me to write, imagine how much harder is to ever win the price. It is a terrible idea.

I’ve seen other things (stealing, fights, falls, etc.) though except from the falls, they’re not as funny or annoying than the one aforementioned. Maybe in two or three months I’ll have more anecdotes to talk about.
