Dear Grocery Store Customers,

When you come to the service desk and see that there are two cashiers, please talk to the one who doesn't look busy. When I have my arms full of cigarette packs and look rather frazzled, it's going to take me a minute to get organized enough to help you. The other cashier just finished with her last customer and is doing NOTHING! I am busy. She is not busy. Do you understand what I'm trying to get at? Anyone? Please?
*sigh* Let me find a place to put all these cigarettes and I'll grab your lotto tickets.
Thanks for shopping with us.

Ugh! I know that sentiment! I hated being a cashier (I shan't mention where)!

I believe people pick the busy clerk because that person looks more like they know what they are doing and will have the answer to the inquiry. A clerk that is just standing un-busy conveys a less helpful, less interested attitude weather it's fact or not.

Learned from years of retail service and shopping...

Consider it a compliment to your fine work ethic! ;-)
