no barcode

anonymous asked:

We had a really intense rush at work while understaffed, it was just me and my head cashier at self check trying to kill the line as fast as possible. This old man comes up to me as I'm helping a customer find a barcode and demands I personally check him out. My HC is pissed already, so she turns from fixing a receipt jam and yells "what am I supposed to do, pull cashiers out of my asshole?" Definitely one of my favorite moments working at my current job.

Yessss

Here’s my shopping tips from me to you if you’ve never worked retail:

- if you use a hand basket instead of a cart please for the love of god empty your items onto the belt, don’t just sit your basket on the belt with your items in it. It’s much easier and faster for us to scan your items if you just put them on the belt and we will get you through checkout easier that way
- if you buy something big and heavy like a bag of dog food, either leave it in your cart with the barcode visible so the cashier can use the gun to scan it, or put it on the belt BARCODE UP so your cashier doesn’t have to flip your 50 pound bag over because you decided to be an asshole and put it on the belt with the picture facing up instead
- if you buy a lot of a small item (like cans of cat food) stack/organize them by type so it’s clear to the cashier how many of each thing you have. Depending on the system, every item may not need to be scanned and this way the cashier can scan one of each type and then type in a quantity instead of fumbling with 50 cans in random order
- put your cart back in the cart return or bring it back up to the store. DO NOT put the cart up halfway on a curb!!!! I know people don’t know better and think they’re helping by ensuring the cart doesn’t roll away and hit a car but you have no idea how time consuming and annoying it is to pull several carts backwards over a curb just to be able to collect them ): this is a huge pet peeve of mine
- if you take something off a shelf and want to put it back but aren’t sure where it goes, please don’t just discard it on a random aisle. At least take it back to the vicinity from which you took it so that it can be more easily put back by an employee
- don’t bitch to employees about how long the checkout line is because all it’s going to do is make them annoyed with you. It won’t make the line move faster and it wont make your shopping experience more pleasant. You just become a joke between coworkers
- if you knock something over with your cart, pick it up
- if you make a mess in any way, clean it up or if it’s beyond your ability (spills, broken glass) find an employee. Don’t just leave it
- in general just please remember the people who work in stores are human beings with feelings and energy levels and an actual person has to go behind you and clean up your messes. Any little amount of self containment you can manage will make their shifts and lives that much easier

Hitman episode set at a cosplay con

Eliminate: Toriel cosplayer that stole the NES wallet during a blowjob

theres at least 5 people dressed like agent 47 and every time they see you they compliment on the “authenticity” of your suit and also ask you how come your barcode tattoo doesnt look smudged or anything. You have to dress up as an undertale character in order to sneak into the portion of the building with the toriel

Would you like to know what this is?

This is Beauty and the Beast (1991).  Every single frame in the movie has been smooshed together to create this bit of abstract wonder.

the best part?  You can tell what’s going on if you focus on certain places!  Like at the end, where there’s a lot of dark blue, that’s where the Beast and Gaston were fighting, and that sliver of brown/bronze must be where Belle tries to defend her father.  It gets lighter near the end of the blue part, and that’s gotta be where the Beast transforms into the Prince, and all that gold at the end is the ball where they’re all back to normal…

I’m sorry, but this is just a swirl of life and color and only fans will get it but here it is and I love it.

Pets at Home is taking dry cat food off the shelves after animals started fitting

PETS at Home has recalled four lines of cat food after some animals collapsed and started fitting. The major pet retailer said the three cats became “seriously unwell”.

A statement on the company’s website says: “We are sorry to inform you that we are recalling these AVA products from our range of dry cat food.

“An investigation has revealed that, in the four affected products, the level of thiamine (vitamin B1) was much lower than we had specified. Testing confirmed only these four products are affected.

“We are aware of three cats which, sadly, became seriously unwell four to six weeks after switching to one of the affected products and required veterinary care. All three cats exhibited symptoms of sudden collapse, fitting, widespread twitching and general unsteadiness which are not the classic symptoms of thiamine deficiency.”

anonymous asked:

How would the Karasuno boys act when they have to buy condoms from Ukai's shop, having to look their coach in the eye as they pay for them?

i laughed for like 10 minutes after reading this request i love it. i’ve been having some health issues lately and needed a good pick-me-up

if you like what i do and want to show your support, consider supporting me on ko-fi!

The only way I could rationalize them willingly buying condoms from Sakanoshita–as opposed to any place else–knowing that their coach is minding the shop is that the team has some crazy bet going on and these are in the event that they are the loser of said bet. Whether or not they’re doing the do and actually need them is entirely irrelevant.

Daichi

  • He’s one of the few who don’t make it weird somehow. It’s just another transaction, right? Not to mention that Ukai’s made it clear to them that whatever they do outside of volleyball is none of his business.
  • It’s not embarrassing until he gets to the counter to pay and has a moment of internal panic that this is very awkward. But Daichi’s a master of keeping his composure while screaming internally all the while, so you’d never know.
    • It doesn’t hurt that he buys a few things he actually needs along with them. But still.

Suga

  • He tries to play dumb when they’re rung up: “Whoops, how did those get in there? Well, I guess I’ll take them anyway. Doesn’t hurt to have some, right?” Cue the forced bashful laughter.
  • It’s clear to everyone within a 5 mile radius that Suga is playing this up too much. Like it’s painful to watch.
  • Once out of the shop, Suga will show no mercy and pelt either the first person who laughs or the person who suggested the bet in the first place with the box.

Asahi

  • He has to buy at least four or five other things along with them in hopes that Ukai doesn’t give the condoms a second thought.
  • Except he kind of just grabs whatever is within arm’s reach in a tizzy without paying attention, so it’s an interesting mix of things.
  • He forgets how to breathe when Ukai rings his things up. You’d think that having his coach be unfazed by all of this would make it less embarrassing, but the contrast in their demeanors makes it worse. 
    • You can bet his s/o will be the one to buy them from now on because he’s scarred for life.

Nishinoya

  • Slams the box down on the counter and looks Ukai straight in the eyes. It’s the only thing he’s buying.
  • Noya’s got a dead serious look on his face the whole time. Coupled with the fact that he’s standing in a power pose, it makes the transaction feel more like a battle of wills than a simple interaction between a shopkeeper/coach and his customer/pupil.
  • Seriously, Ukai is unnerved by this until Noya shouts out a thanks and bows deeply before leaving the shop, and hearing Tanaka’s cry of “Noya-san is so cool!!!” from outside.

Tanaka

  • Tries the nonchalant whistling thing, which makes the whole process more suspect and embarrassing.
  • “They’re for my sister’s…. boyfriend…”
    • He doesn’t know why he went with that excuse. Even if Saeko had a boyfriend, neither of them would bother having Tanaka buy a box for them.
  • Ukai’s, “Good for them, I guess?” does nothing to alleviate any of Tanaka’s embarrassment.

Ennoshita

  • If it’s questioned, he has his excuse of “A prop for the new movie” all ready to go. Although, he’s also worried that unless he can make up a plot for this movie that doesn’t exist (yet), it might be considered a cause for concern that his movies are getting too adult for high school students to be in charge of.
  • Takes five minutes to come up with an elevator pitch just in case before he has to go in.
  • Ukai doesn’t even ask or indicate that he’s buying condoms and Ennoshita–red-faced and stuttering–goes on about some Seth Rogen-esque stoner comedy that he’s working on.
    • “Well, just don’t get in trouble filming something like that. You’re still a kid, after all.”

Narita

  • Can’t stop dropping his change, which is the perfect excuse to physically hide how ridiculous he feels.
  • The transaction from then on can be described as swift, as in the second Ukai hands him the bag Narita takes it and heads for the door with a, “Hm thanks coach see you tomorrow bye!” It’s all in one fluid motion and yes, that goodbye is punctuation-less .
  • Just…never bring this up again. He’d rather forget the whole thing.

Kinoshita

  • He can’t go in alone. He has to do this with at least one other person going into the shop with him, and Noya is the only one who also isn’t embarrassed by this in any way. The other second-years are embarrassed by proximity, so-to-speak.
    • Except Noya gets distracted trying to find his usual ice cream flavor, so Kinoshita has to ride solo at the counter.
  • It’s clear he’s nervous about the whole thing; his whole body is stiff and he reacts to anything Ukai says as if the man is correcting his technique during practice.
  • He does have to keep his eyes on his wallet and money most of the transaction because there’s no one he can look his coach in the eye while buying them.

Kageyama

  • He knows he’s not smart and that everyone knows this as well, so he decides to tackle this issue by using this to advantage.
  • Except he anticipates Ukai will say anything in the first place, and blurts something out totally unprompted..
    • Ukai: “That’ll be–”
    • Kageyama: What do you mean those aren’t water balloons?
  • The following is the most tense five seconds of silence you’ll ever see between these two.
  • He’s so red that Ukai is worried that Kageyama’s head might explode. Or he passes out on the spot, especially because he stops breathing.

Hinata

  • He thinks he can play it cool, but it’s like watching a trainwreck.
  • He suddenly can’t hear anything. There’s so much blood rushing to his head that he can only hear that in his ears. Ukai tells him how much he owes and Hinata keeps repeating, “What?” each time it happens.
    • “Just… take them, alright, Hinata?”
  • Once he leaves the store, his face seems to be stuck in a smile and he doesn’t react to anything anyone says or does to him. His soul has left his body. He’s straight-up astral projecting in front of the vending machines outside the shop. Never make him do that again.

Tsukishima

  • Like Daichi, he also is does not make it weird. The glare from his glasses absolutely helps to hide anything his eyes might give away about feeling like an idiot the whole time.
  • But you could replace the condoms with any other item in the store and everything would be exactly the same about this interaction.
  • The rest of the team is mad because there was no point of having the loser of their bet do that if the loser wasn’t affected by it.
    • But this eventually backfires on Tsukki because guess who Noya and Tanaka have now playfully dubbed, “The Condom King.” He hates it.

Yamaguchi

  • He’s a blend of Suga and Kageyama in this situation: “I thought they were rubber gloves! What? T-those aren’t mine!” (Which one is it, Yams?)
  • Things get worse because the barcode scanner just won’t scan this box and every second feels ten times longer than it actually is during this.
  • At this point he’s just praying that no one else–sans the rest of the boys–has to bear witness to this. If Yachi walked in and saw, he’d probably die.
