One reader, "Mike," (not pictured) a self-described cashier, seemed very offended by my comments. He had a few not so nice opinions about couponers to share. Here is what he said:
"No, avid couponerss DO NOT "always" know the policy. In fact, most don't. I am one of those cashiers that will roll my eyes at you because you hare the one holding up the line, not me. You and your coupons for items you didn't buy, your expired coupons, your insistence that I stack coupons that cannot be stacked, your demands that I not only use to coupon but price match the store down the street, your multiple transactions because you can only use one coupon per transaction and you stole the coupon section out of ever Sunday paper in the tri-county area to build up a stack and you wiped out the shelf because you are the epitome of selfish and YOU are the one who is rude when I politely explain the policy to you why I cannot do what you are demanding I do and threatening to get me fired for following the rules. I know that you sleep at night by convincing yourself that you are in the right because you "just want a good deal" but in reality, couponers are little more than spoiled children who always got their way and never grew the hell up."
My response to Mike: I don't know about all the other couponers out there, Mike, but I for one do not usually think too much about coupons when I go to sleep. Do you?
