Why is there always that one customer that holds you up with a long transaction as you’re about to end your shift or close for the night?

It is called sod's law, i used to be a librarian and some nights we were open until 8pm,nearly every night someone would come in at about 5 to 8 and want all sorts of stuff finding for them! he public are very annoying aren't they?

The customer's being persistent as one strongly feels he must make the transaction without a fuss and that one is doing this out of easy persuasion.

People don't know that you're about to end your shift nor do they care.
As for store closing, that is a strategy people some use as you know the store will be empty and employees will be more willing to help you so they can get you out of the store faster.

People have no idea when your shifts end.
As long as your store is open, they can walk in two minutes to close to shop. That is their right.
No store manager is going to tell you to tell the customer to leave. Or that they must hurry up so you could closed
Some people are just getting off work , rushing around trying to get errands done, some are oblivious to the time.

Because ppl pay little attention to work schedules, and more to the reason they’re shopping and when. Often ppl prefer going later in the day or evening to avoid crowds. They’re clueless about closing times and try to rush in at the last minute.

Could you state we are just about to close, but I would be glad to help you until then. Even stating something like I have to get back to my elderly mother or to my young children, would be a nice touch

Big deal - 5 minutes more or less.

And you know those people who show up last minute never worked such a job before. Those that have, know better.
