Can't stand my coworker whenever he comments on customer purchase

There's a guy I work with, Frank, (real name) who is a cashier where I work and almost every day, without fail, if a customer buys a certain item, he'll either give them certain information on it or tell a customer they should have bought another product instead. Ex. 1. A customer will buy parchment paper for baking. Frank: Do you know why it's called parchment paper? Customer: No, I don't. Frank: Let me give you a little history lesson. Frank then proceeds to tell people that the Declaration Of Independence was written on parchment paper and something else I can't quite make out. My thoughts are "Oh, will you shut the f*** up?" 2. A customer buys a York Peppermint Patty. Frank: You know, if you put these in the freezer for an hour, then when you eat them they tastes so good. Me thinking, "Who freaking cares?" 3. A customer buys a fruit drink. Frank: Oh, you shouldn't buy this. You should buy (other product) it tastes much better." Me again thinking, "Who cares what tastes better and what doesn't? I sure as h*** don't. If I never worked at that job at all but was just a customer, here's how the conversation between me and him would go. 1. Frank: Do you know why it's called parchment paper? Me: No, I don't. Frank: Let me give you a little history lesson. Me: And I don't f****** care? Frank: Excuse me? Me: I said I don't f****** care why it's called parchment paper. I didn't come here for a f****** history lesson. I came here to shop. 2. Frank: You know, if you put these (York Peppermint Patty) in the freezer for an hour, then when you eat them they taste so good. Me: Sir, I really don't f****** care what you do with them but, since I'm paying for them I'll eat them my way. 3. Frank: Oh, you shouldn't buy this. You should buy (other product) it tastes much better. Me: Mister, I'll buy whatever the f*** I want, ok? I don't care which certain foods and/or drinks tastes better. Since I'm buying them, it's no concern to me how they f****** taste, ok? Honestly, I wish that Frank would just shut up instead of telling customers historical facts, what to do with whatever they purchase or what they should be purchasing because I really am close to one day telling him off.

  • I had a waitress tell us that we had to say Black Lives Matter before she would serve us. My friend asked what if we don't. She said she would make a scene and accuse us of calling her a racial slur.

  • Next time you go out to eat, take a black friend with you. She can't falsely say you called her a racial slur if you have soneone the same ethnicity as her.

  • I stopped shopping at a small local 'mom and pop' market because they hired a young girl that did that. She was a little arrogant 'know it all' and would make comments on everything I would purchase. The second and btw the LAST time I shopped there, I was purchasing fresh beets and she said, "EWW!! I don't like beets!" I snapped and said, "I'm not buying them for YOU"

  • Damm, omg that's annoying! I hate when people tell others what to do!!

  • It isn't so much that he was telling customers what to do. More so that he just kept telling almost every customer who comes through his line the same damn thing over and over again without even thinking that maybe the customers don't really want to hear it. I can actually tell because they usually speak in a tone that's along the lines of, "I don't care I'm only pretending to. I'm just pretending to care to be nice."
