21 Painful Struggles Of Working In A Shoe Shop
When someone tries to return shoes that have clearly been worn.
And they are deadly serious when they ask for a refund.
Having to constantly deal with other people's feet.
Sometimes they even ask you to help them put their shoes on.
When people hand back their used pop socks, rather than putting them in the bin.
Or having to juggle boxes when someone wants more than three pairs of shoes at a time.
The panic when you have to measure children's feet.
When someone puts the wrong pair of shoes back in the box.
Which is almost as bad as when you can't find the other foot.
When a customer has the exact same shoe on, in a ~slightly~ different colour, and they can't make up their mind between the two.
And they ask you for your opinion, like you care enough to have an opinion.
You lowkey lose it when people touch the displays.
And you are probably super fast at lacing shoes.
The stockroom is definitely an absolute disaster.
But you still know that what the customer wants definitely isn't in there.
Trying to leave work without buying another pair of shoes is the realist struggle.
