Holding Everyone Up While You Look For Your Credit Card
From Redditor u/strikt9:
If you've been waiting in line to talk to me then you have had plenty of time to get your sh*t together.
Do you know why you had to wait? Because the person in front of you had to dig to find their receipt then dig again to find their credit card. Now you're pissed at having to wait and causing the same problem for the person behind you.

Putting Random Objects In The Candy Rack
From Redditor u/dylanus93:
If you're not going to get something, just hand it to the cashier and say you don't want it.
Don't hide it in the candy rack, especially if it's something like ground beef.
Also, if you're not going to buy an entire cart of groceries don't say you're running to the car and will be right back.

Touching The Glass Door Instead Of The Handle
From Redditor u/Spammylyn:
When I've just cleaned the glass doors and instead of using the door handle they put their entire hand on the glass.
It's even better when they compliment me on how clean the doors look first.

From Redditor u/JigglyKneecaps:
Customers forget that the individual helping them is a person: "Hello, how are you doing today?" = silence or "we'll take 3 waters".
