Mum shares a hilarious rant about a customer service experience that really left her rattled.

“Dear Coles,

“Your cashier threw a jar of Vegemite at me then did a Poo behind the counter.

“My transaction started off positively, the kind of friendly service I am accustomed when shopping at Coles.

“The checkout assistant was extremely friendly, helping me place my groceries on the counter, smiling, asking if I had any more items in my basket? I’m not sure what kind of HR policies you have in place but at one stage she even blew me a kiss!

“Once all my items had been neatly unloaded at the register the check out assistant began scanning my items, one at a time, ever so gracefully whilst making little beeping sounds as they passed by the register, she then looked at me and said “FOUR”.

“I thought this was cheap for a jar of vegemite, a cup of Chicken Noodles and a bottle of Vanish but Coles do have great specials.

“I proceed to hand her $20

“The cashiers eyes lit up immediately.

“We proceed with the note exchange where she snatched the note off me, stuffed it in her till and closed the draw.

“I paused for a moment awaiting my $16 change…. but nothing…. she just stood there grinning.

When I questioned her about my change she started to get all huffy…

“Repeating the word “bye bye” over and over.

“I politely explained to her that I needed some change from her till, that i had given her $20 and In return she needed to give me some money back.

“At this point she began screwing her face up as she repeated in anger “bye bye” then with one foul swoop she swiped my groceries off the counter in a fit of rage.
Mortified by her behaviour, yet wanting to remain the bigger person I quietly proceeded to explain how a “transaction” worked.

“I advised her if she did not issue me with my change I was going to speak to the 2IC when he got home.

“In the middle of my calm explanation the cashier ducked down behind the counter. Assuming she has bent down to pick up the items that she threw down there in her rage I wait….. again….. nothing….. so I cautiously peek my head over the register when to my horror I notice that she is in fact squatting behind the counter doing a poo!!!!

“Absolutely appalled by not only the behaviour but the stench I left, where she proceeded to run after me crying with soiled pants.

“My shopping experience today was far from acceptable and I would appreciate if this matter could be looked into promptly.

Please see photographic evidence that I managed to capture of the cashier in question.

Unhappy shopper.”

  • I thought it was serious too. It seemed wierd she was going to speak to 2iC when he got home.

    Great warped sense of humour


  • I thought it was serious and maybe it is Ha ha, maybe the items stocked by Coles in kids store should be soft (not plastic) not dangerous. I am a grannie and we used to play shops as part of our maths lesson, do not know if tey do it now but good for teaching money skills and manners


  • Ha ha, I loved it, thank you.


  • I was wondering where this was going. You had me fooled right to the very end. I love it


  • Very clever. However I doubt that Coles will use this to sell more collectibles.


  • I love it! Dry cleverly done ????


  • LOL so funny and cute!


  • OMG You have just made my morning ! Thank you for this hilarious post. You are an awesome Mum.


  • This is so funny. I did think at first it was just another rant about Coles and the bags or the plastic toys or something… very funny and lighthearted.

    • True! There have been so many rants over the bags and toys and moving on… ;)
