Thanks for Standing There & Watching the Line
OAKLAND (ST. LOUIS), MISSOURI -- For those of you familiar with QuikTrip, the place can get crazy busy, especially in the morning, lunchtime, and evening. Most of the QT's I go to usually have 3-4 people at the counter ringing people out, then 1 or 2 people restocking and "working the floor," which works to get people in an our quickly.
At this particular location, especially at lunchtime, you will usually only find 1 or 2 people at the counter with 3-4 on the floor, which is not good when you have a line of 10+ people. To make matters worse, there are two midage women (one blonde, one redish/brown hair) that are always just standing around by the coffee talking about who knows what. You want to stand around a talk when it is slow, fine. However, when you got 10+ people in line and the 2 people at the counter are new (nice kids, but still in that slow/learning phase), don't just glance at the line and keep talking about last night's episode of Couger Town, go ring some people up.
I'm sorry somewhere down the line you made some mistakes that caused to you work at a convience store at the age of 45, but try to take some pride in your work and help out. The only time I've seen either one of these women ringing people out is at like 2pm when no one is in there.
That is why I still go to the Watson Road one instead. They always, ALWAYS have at least 3 people working the counter.
