13 Thoughts We All Have When Working in Retail

Working in retail can be a tough gig and nothing is worse than when some know-it-all tells you how easy your job is.

We know exactly how you feel.

Do you cringe every time a customer thinks it’s alright to shop past closing time? Have you ever experienced a mini heart attack when a customer digs for change while the line gets longer…only to pay with all bills in the end? Do you die a little inside when you hear the boss say “inventory day?”

If you’re quietly nodding to any of these, take a load off, read the following, and just laugh it off – don’t lie, we know you’ve had these thoughts.
