I dislike going to gasstations with Indian( East Indies) clerks, it's like you have to pull their smile with the plyers, because they seem to be so burdened by their job, and if you buy tickets for 50c you'll read a smerk on their face, or rather a hint of disquast.

Today I've seen two funny clerks. One was skinny blondy with few missing teeth, with a massy brade. She was nice, though. Next to her was working middle age lady with heavy Western accent, who did not know what symbol X means on Cash 3 slip. I had to explain that it means I pick a pair of numbers out of three to match. She thought it was multiplication mark! Well, such clerks will hardly ever do any harm to their lottery customers, but, oh my, where do they find those chip employees? Must be hiring from the Western plains.

          For starters, not all store and gas station owners are all that smart, they hire whom ever they can find that will work for low wages.

          A smart owner would would hire one person to handle gas and food transactions, while the other person would handle lottery transactions.

          Sometimes you have spend money to make money, I would make it clear to my employees, if I am making money, you will make money.

          I would build the business on good reputation, when you treat your customers well, they come back.

          I would make it clear that bet slips must be filled out, nothing worse then idiots with numbers scribbled on old envelopes and spewing numbers at the clerk, holding up the line, makes the other customers angry.

          I would train the clerk to make sure all of the customers needs were met, Do you need scratch offs? Powerball is up, do you need one? Is there anything else I can help you with?

          All the little things build your business.

          I would tell my employees, integrity is key, and if you help build my sales, I will happily give out raises and bonuses.

            What about clerk getting his phone, calling someone while you stand there in front of him reday to be served? Most confused I get when those clerks have heavy East  Indian accent. Anyone can understand what they are saying? Even more, they talk without looking at you, so you don't know if words are addressed to you, or someone behind your back, or to their God.  My response usually is: I hold my breath for  a moment and my eyes get big and no solution is coming my way, except smiling.

              Then, I would in the most polite way, explain to the clerk, I will take my money elsewhere, Oh and by the way, half my family shops here and I will make sure they don't come back either.

              Problem solved.

                    Please, guys, any unusual experience with the clerks, can we gossip about it?

                      Okay, I would rather chew off my ear, then gossip, so let's just call it bringing each other up to date!

                      My last bad experience with a clerk, can't remember really.
