I think working in retail has ordained me to deal with a lot of crap. Lol. It has taught me to perservere, be patient, thick-skinned, happy, sad, mad, and dumbfounded.
I have a wonderful time helping customers find what they need, and getting that interaction you might get with 2-3 customers a day where you feel you brought them some happiness….
but other times… you get this.
Lady: Hi, just looking.
Me: Let me know if there’s something I can help you find.
Lady: Well, I’d like to find a shirt I can wear without a bra, because I don’t have one on..
Or you get the customers that come in and take 10 items to try on. I let them know, I will put their items back, but they start folding and messing up your coworker’s displays..
I’ve done this before, I worked in retail.
I guess……. but working in retail 17 years ago.. doesn’t really count.
Well hopefully nothing else tonight.
