Eyebrows Didn't Like Working Retail Either

Today in the supermarket, my checker was complaining bitterly to another employee: "And everyone keeps getting in LINE and wanting to check OUT and I never get to STOP scanning their ITEMS. I don't understand why I have to keep DOING this all day."

Why? Because they're paying you, dude.

Having worked retail, I sympathize with the sentiment, but it was still pretty funny to hear it out loud.

He doesn't have to do it all day. The door is right over there.

He can trade with me if he wants. I get to stand around waiting for customers all day with nothing to do. Seems people don't care to spend money on jewelry much in Januari and Februari.

I loved working at the grocery store. Making sure shelves looked full... bagging... helping people to their cars. Paid crap, but it was something to do for the summer.

I don't care what you do or how much you get paid, you should a) always be professional to the customer, b) never complain in front of a customer, and c) if you don't like it that much, quit. It's that simple.
