If you work (or have in recent memory) in a service position, what are the pet peeves/annoyances you remember most that people in general can fix? No matter if you're a dentist, waiter, teacher, or used car salesman, let us know (:

I work as a cashier at a major retailer, and there are several things that over the past year (this is only a high school job) have struck me. I no longer *ever* get impatient with a cashier when something goes wrong with the machine or if he or she rings something up wrong. It happens. I try not to count out exact change if it's like $38.97 anymore. Really. That's annoying. Cashiers would much rather give you the $1.03 change than count out your pennies.
So, I was thinking today while bagging dozens of dish towels: What about people in other similarly customer-service oriented jobs?
So, what can I (and others) do to make your job easier? Anything specific, anything general. Anything I can do to make you not think when I leave: "What a douche."
