A shopper has been slammed as ‘entitled and rude’ after walking out of Aldi when staff refused to open a register for her.
The woman said she was ‘stuck behind’ someone with a full trolley and was frustrated that she had to wait because she only had four items.
But when she asked floor staff, who were cleaning and re-stocking, to open a register so she didn’t have to wait she was told ‘it won’t be too long’.

This sent the woman into a fit of rage, prompting her to dump her items on the nearest shelf, storm out and pen a lengthy post on Facebook.
‘Does anyone else find the staff at Aldi rude?’ she asked before explaining she has to ask for a register to be opened ‘every time’ she is in the store.
She complained floor staff looked at the register for ten seconds before declining to open a second counter.
‘Clearly caring about customers is the last thing this store thinks about,’ she wrote.
She then added that if treating customers poorly is the store’s police she ‘wants no part of it’.
But the furious rant didn’t appear to go the young woman’s way – it went viral instead after a screenshot was posted on Reddit.
Most people agreed the rant was uncalled for and slammed her for her ‘poor behaviour’.
‘This is obviously the rant of someone who has never had to work in retail,’ one woman laughed.
‘I didn’t know asking to open another register was an option. She does it ‘almost every time!’,’ added another.
‘It took her longer to type this out than it would have taken to wait in line,’ one customer laughed.
Others said they have never had to wait long at the store.
‘It is literally a race between you and the cashier at that place,’ one woman said.
‘If I had 100 items it would still only take two minutes, they are fast there,’ agreed another.
Some were amused by her complaint and asked her to ‘look up the word patience’.
‘I notice she said the cashier already started ringing up the first customer, so I’m sure she would have asked to cut them since she only had four items.’

Some attempted to sympathise with her.
‘Poor girl, I totally get it! Imagine being SECOND in line. Ugh, just thinking of it makes me want to twist my own head off and eat it. So disgusting,’ one man laughed.
‘What ever happened to service? What ever happened to catering for the customer? You mean my local grocery store doesn’t have guys that will physically carry me around the store on a golden chair while feeding me grapes? I just can’t believe it sometimes.’
The woman who shared the post on Reddit says the original was ‘quickly deleted’ after the woman was ‘absolutely scorched’ by her friends.
FEMAIL understands the global supermarket chain opens new registers as required and depending on the availability of team members and the number of customers in store.
