When a cashier says "thanks, have a nice day" or whatever other stock saying they use, and automatically starts helping the person behind you in line. Thusly, you have to akwardly shove your change into your wallet, instead of being able to place it nicely away.
I always count my change first before putting it away. Cashiers used to count your change out into your hand as they placed it, now they just shove it at you with a thousand feet of paper receipts and other flotsam garbage. So I take my time to count my change and HATE it when the customer behind me starts trying to edge me out. Excuse me, I'm not done!

I usually do self-checkout at my grocery store, and I HATE it when the next person comes and puts their stuff down by the scanner before I've even pulled off my receipt. It will take me approximately four more seconds to remove the receipt and pick up my two bags. The world will not end in those four seconds! I would understand if they were carrying a 12-pack in each hand, or something like a gallon of milk that is heavy and they want to put it down as quickly as possible. But that's never the case.

Apparently you've never worked a customer service job. It's incredibly annoying waiting for people to fumble through their crap to put their stuff away. Respectful people will take two steps forward so the cashier can move on, and you can put change in your wallet before heading back to the car.

Cashier pet peeve: having to wear the same five minute forced smile while you're still standing in front of my register folding your receipt up AND/OR looking at what coupons you've received AND/OR trying to put your change away AND/OR still holding a conversation with me.

Thank you, Maria!!! Yes, it's super annoying when customer number has been super slow...and customer number two is getting antsy. So forgive all us chasiers if we just want to end your long-assed fumblings and try to help the next guest...it's called curtesy...try it.
