Bad retail: I just bought a 99 cent bag of chips and a 99 cent bag of Crackerjack. The kid at the register couldn't get the barcode on the chips to scan in one try so he just scanned the Crackerjack twice. Fine for the total amount due, but since CVS has everything inventoried, he's not doing their computer system any favors. Is it really a big deal in the grand scheme of things if CVS doesn't know they're sold out of Lay's potato chips? No, and nobody's under the mistaken impression that the average male teen is conscientious about his day job. But even yours truly, the most jaded, misanthropic teen imaginable, gave enough of a shit to punch in some numbers and get the job done right. Oh well, I've never been cool.
