You've walked in on a customer in the fitting room.You've spent hours tidying a section only to turn around and have it messed up by a customer within five minutes.You've had customers refer to you by name.You know all the words to radio songs you hate.You've dreamt about stocking deliveries, tidying shelves, etc.A customer has blamed you for a price increase.A customer has asked to speak to your manager, only for the manager to repeat exactly what you told them.You've had customers bend over the counter to look at your screen.You've seen customers take down a whole display to get the product at the back, when there are five of the same product in front.You've had customers come in five minutes before closing.A customer has handed you sweaty coins.Customers have paid for a $100+ purchase with only coins.You've forgotten what a weekend is.Customers have asked you to check the price of an item with a price tag on it.You've heard customers say, "The weather sure is nice, huh? Not that you'd know."A customer has yelled at you about something beyond your control.You've politely said good morning to a customer and been told exactly why it ISN'T a good morning.A customer has wrongly accused you of short-changing them.You've had a customer ask if they can take a cart home if they promise to bring it back.You've felt the humiliation of a customer ignoring you when you say hello.You've perfected a fake laugh for when customers tell you jokes.You've perfected pretending to care when a customer tells you about their personal life.You've had to uncomfortably make small talk with children.You've had to clean up vomit.A customer has yelled at you for not having a bathroom in the store.You've had to count the same products so many times for inventory it's all you can see when you close your eyes.You've had to work in outrageous heat with a broken AC.Your shifts always "coincidentally" end just as your closest friends' shifts begin.Customers have assumed it is your responsibility to take care of their children as soon as they enter the store.You've done extra long shifts without a break, laws be damned.A customer who has been nasty and degrading has turned sweet as soon as a manager arrived.You tell a customer you don't have a product. They insist you look in the back even after you tell them you don't "have a back".A customer has tried to go behind the register to look for an item.
