Anonymous said: As pretty horrible as retail jobs can be, I'm kind of thankful, since working retail has actually given me the skills and mindset to truly not give any kind of a crap about what someone thinks of or says to me.
as i’ve said before, i seriously think retail should be experienced by everyone because it helps us really understand what people can be like, and it helps us learn how to handle tough situations and people at their worst. I learned SO MUCH in retail and I hope i NEVER forget any of it.
- Customers bothering you on your break.
-I’m off the clock leave me aloooone.
- "The sign said this is $15".
-No the sign said these DENIM SHORTS are $15 and you’re holding a red dress.
- "Y’all need more people working here, I bet they don’t act like this downtown"
-TAKE YOUR ASS…
When a customer folds a sweater exactly how she found it.
I took a cashiering job
How bad could it be?
It’s ripping the very soul
right on out of me.
They said it’s fun here!
The guests will smile and wave!
What they fail to mention
Is they think I’m their slave.
The jokes customers say
Are slowly killing me
Oh it didn’t scan?
Your stuff still isn’t…
Customer comes in and is extremely rude, right off the bat. You try to help him, try to do everything for him that you possibly can. Constant complaining, whining and comparing to other stores and finally you just turn around and walk away. You just have to walk away…
Like/Reblog if you’re a cashier in a non grocery store.
ie; You don’t ring up food and groceries. Maybe you work in a clothing store, hardware store and so on.
I’m curious !

don’t deny it guys, every retail employee has fantasized about this
A miracle has happened at work today.
Something wasn’t scanning.
And the customer just waited until it scanned.
And then they paid and left.
They didn’t say it.
'if it's not scanning it must be free!'
'you look like you need something to do!'
WHEN I GOT A RAISE
Sad but OH SO TRUE.
This is literally the bane of my existence. “Just looking” is NOT an acceptable response when someone is just being polite to you. Would you answer a friend or an acquaintance with that shit? No. You wouldn’t. Assholes.
I thought about going about this in a sarcastic and brutal way, but then I remembered how being in retail has taught me to be polite even in the worst of circumstances. So, in keeping with the theme of this blog, I’m going to clue some of you in on the Do’s and Dont’s of shopping in a retail…
