We certainly do our fair bit of whinging about our supermarkets. But it looks like the supermarket workers have just as many complaints about us shoppers.
One Woolworths worker has unleashed her annoyances on the world in a TikTok video, which has amassed thousands of views.
The worker posted her video on TikTok under the handle @rachelkarlenemoor on TikTok. In the clip, she pushes a Woolworths trolley and goes through the store placing unwanted items back in their rightful places after customers decided they no longer want them.
She captioned the video: “Always putting people’s stuff they don’t want away!”
Rachel said that she usually works the nightfill shift and while putting away unwanted items isn’t part of her job description, night staff tend to do it if there is time. Apparently, it’s the checkout staff’s duty to put away items that are in the wrong spot.
Other Woolworths workers definitely agreed that customers that change their mind while shopping are really annoying and “the worst job to do”.
“Legit the worst job to do. I just find it boring walking around putting stuff back on shelves,” said one.
Rachel answered: “Wouldn’t say it’s the worst job but definitely would make it easier if people knew how to put s**t back or don’t grab it if they don’t actually want.”
“Yes! I literally carried a packet of bay leaves around in my hand until we got to the aisle it belonged in,” agreed another.
“I spend an hour in each aisle trying to figure out where everything goes,” yet another commented.
I LOVE ‘Dumpies’!
However, one Woolworths worker actually welcomed the challenge of returning lost items to their homes.
“That literally used to be my favourite job to do,” they said.
“Especially when I was meant to be in checkouts.”
“I love dumpies and because ur (sic) on a mission I find customers don’t really ask me anything,” added another.
Ah, So That’s What It Is!
The video explained the mystery of those random trolleys in store filled with a whole lot of unrelated products.
“OMG that’s what those random trolleys around the shops used to be? I thought they were the workers’ shopping or something,” one customer shared.
