Some customers behavior has left one Aldi checkout workers feeling 'burnt out'

According to the checkout worker their Aldi store has “lots of elderly customers” and “if they come in with reusable bags and less than 10-15 items I’ll bag it for them as I scan”.

But in a Reddit post, they go on to say “I absolutely will NOT bag someone’s things when they literally throw the bag at me as I am scanning their groceries”.

“This happens at least once a day, not only to me but my co-workers as well, and it’s always older people,” they write.

The worker then goes on say that despite only working at Aldi for six months “I’m already burnt out”.

But they then go on to reveal how they exact revenge on these misbehaving customers.

“I’ve found that complaining about these people is the only thing that relieves me at this point,” they said.

It comes after another Aldi worker revealed the things she hated hearing.

The supermarket worker kicked off by noting that she's forever being told to scan slower, and is regularly asked why the food is so cheap.

She went on to highlight some of the other annoying questions she receives, which include: “Have you got it round the back?” and “can I speak to your manager?” 

Meanwhile, a superfan of the low-cost chain revealed that shoppers can swap an item they don't like and get their money back.

An ex-employee also claimed that Wednesday is the optimum day to shop at the store.
