I was often tempted to say "Fuckyouverymuch" to see if the customer would notice the difference.

Never did of course. I'm just not the type.

The age of cell phone made getting the customers attention more difficult. I can remember trying everything short of slapping them to let a customer that they needed to pay or to give them change. And of course the next customer in line is usually slowly fuming at having to wait.

How is using your first name, if the company requires it, impolite? No one knows your preferences. So they have to follow the company guidelines.

if that were the case, that would be one thing(although a stupid policy), but it doesn't apply to my situation. I've been to that store and others in the chain before, and other cashiers haven't done that.

So it's either an over-friendly cashier who didn't realize she was being a little rude, or she just didn't care. I think, from her demeanor, that she was just friendly, but it was still irritating. And that's not getting into her commenting on my purchase.
