Working in a retail store can be one of the most stressful jobs a person can have. Having to put up with disrespectful customers and insane hours isn't worth the little pay they receive. So the next time you think about getting upset while shopping, just realize what these employees go through on a daily basis.
When a customer returns a shirt that smells awful.
What did you do, run a marathon in that shirt?
When you clearly have a name tag on and the customer asks if you work here.
No, I just enjoy folding clothes at random stores.
When a customer threatens to take their business elsewhere.
Go ahead. Like I really care.
When the customer says they left their coupons at home.
Not my problem.
When you have to wake up on Black Friday.
Get ready for hell.
When customers leave their unwanted clothes in the changing room.
You are the worst type of person.
When someone comes in five minutes before the store closes.
When an unruly customer finally leaves the store.
Get out and never come back.
When the customer is talking on their bluetooth headset while checking out.
Just stop the phone call for one minute, it's very annoying.
When you say “hi” to a customer and they just ignore you.
This will teach them to respect you.
When a customer destroys the display you just worked two hours fixing.
You little piece of s%$#.
When a customer is checking out and tells you that they forgot their wallet in the car.
How do you not realize this when you get in the store.
When an item doesn’t scan and the customer says, “It must be free then.”
That joke never gets old.
When you clock out and a customer asks you a question.
Nah, I'm good.
When a customer is arguing with you about nonsense.
Remain calm and try not to kill this person.
When your friends make plans on the weekends, but you work every weekend.
*Slowly dying inside*
When an item is out of stock and the customer asks for you to check the back.
The "back" isn't some magical place that has everything in stock all the time.
When a customer has terrible body odor but you have to ring them out.
Oh God, please don't write a check, just take the clothes.
When your replacement doesn’t show up and you are asked to cover their shift.
You've got to be kidding, right?
