There's nothing more awkward than having to serve someone from your school!
We've all done it - whether it's working a summer job or spending your entire weekend behind a counter. We've all done our time in retail and if you haven't taken your first step into a stock room yet - your time will come.
Honestly, you're just waiting for someone to call you and let you know you've been nominated for an Oscar. Any day now, right? It's long overdue.
If fact, you're so good at it that you could literally send an essay on an iPhone and not end up with one spelling mistake. How your boss has never noticed is a miracle.
You will gladly risk people thinking you have a serious bladder problem just so you can put your damn feet up for a hot second.
Well, how else do they expect you to last for an entire 9 hour shift and be ready to start it all over again at 8am the next day? Duh!
Christmas shopping. Boxing Day. JANUARY SALES. *cries for all eternity*
The worst thing about retail isn't the customers - it's trying to get the work squad out for a few drinks. It's impossible and you're usually the one that gets left out because you're always stuck working weekends. Wah.
There's literally NO where you can hide on this one - not even behind that fake smile and laugh because they know you. So you can't be fake and you can't ignore them, so you just have to settle for painfully awkward. Kill me now, please.
It's almost as if you're paying to work here. Scammed again!
As if your phone anxiety wasn't at 100% anyway, every time the phone rings you now automatically descend into a sweaty panic. TIP: Block the number of your work and your boss on your days off. Don't tell anyone we told you that. ;)
Listen, lady! I've gotta shut this place down in 4 minutes and 45 seconds. Are you buying that Ivy Park tracksuit or not?
In just one 9hr shift on a Thursday, you’ll have been privy to more family arguments, divorces, affairs, new babies, sudden deaths than a character on Grey’s Anatomy.
There's that fake laugh again!
