    Just 21 GIFs That'll Make Any Retail Worker Say "LOL, My Life"

    "No price tag — it must be free!" *eyeroll*

    1. "No price means it's free, right?"

    Wow you're so original and funny.

    2. When a customer walks up to the register while on the phone, then gives you the "give me a minute" finger.

    No I'm just standing here behind this register for fun.

    4. When the line is out the door and no one comes when you call for back up.

    You've called for back up at least eight times. The line is out the door and every single person is staring daggers into your soul. Customer Judy finally gets to the register and wants you to call every other store in the county to see if anyone has a matching ugly throw pillow... and no one is coming to help. No one ever comes to help.

    5. When a customer can't make up their mind.

    11. "You deserve a raise."

    Yes. Yes I do. Would you mind telling my boss that?

    12. "Miss! Excuse me miss! I need you to carry my bags to my car."

    It's usually because they need both hands free for texting.

    13. When you FINALLY hear a new song come on after listening to the same playlist repeat itself over and over and over.


    You can only listen to "Life is a Highway" so many times before you start to go a little crazy.

    14. When someone attractive comes in the store.

    15. ...but you don't want to talk to them because you look and feel like human trash.

    17. When you request a day off with plenty of heads up, but they don't give it to you.

    You need to make that doctor's appointment you've been putting off. Two months advance should be enough time... right? WRONG.

    21. It's OK though, because you're a boss and you're going to make it through.

    At least that's what you keep telling yourself.
