We don’t know everything. You have no idea how many people were mad at me because while I was working in the accessories department, I didn’t know what was on sale in the men’s department. Listen. I don’t know. Also, no I don’t know what 20% off your total purchase is. I’m not a mathematician. I can ring you up and let you know. I can’t add up your total purchase and in the discount in my head. I’m not a damn accountant.
Y’all ain’t shit. No for real. Y’all ain’t shit. The customers have the worst attitudes. How are you already pissed off before you get to the register? On Christmas Eve, a lady told me to piss off. I simply told her to have a Merry Christmas. Had we been in the streets, it would’ve been a different story.
If you have questions I can’t answer, I will gladly call a manager. I don’t have the time because you have a question about a wrong sign. Just because you find a shirt on the clearance rack & when we check the price and its full price, that doesn’t mean we’ll give it to you for the percentage off. It just means that someone put it on the wrong rack. BUT if you were nice enough, you can receive that discount. If you have a nasty attitude, you could also receive a discount or get shut down by a manager.
Some of the managers ain’t shit. I’ll preface this by saying that some of the managers work really hard. But some of y’all aint shit and will gladly walk around the store watching everyone else work. I guess they figure “Hey, I put in my work. Now you have to.” Yeah. Y’all aint shit.
My feet hurt. The first day I was there, I had a 4 hour shift. I wore heels. Big mistake. That was my 1st and last day wearing them. Not like I’ve never been in heels for several hours but that was different. Even when I didn’t have on heels, my feet were sore. I can see why so many older women working in retail have issues with their feet when they’ve been working in retail for 20+ years. I’ve been sitting down for at least 10 hours a day for 2 ½ years. That’s 8 hours of work plus the 2 – 2 ½ hours of sitting in traffic each day. With the exception of the gym and walking to the car or bathroom, I’m literally never on my feet. My dogs barked the entire 6 weeks I worked there.
If you were a seasonal worker like I was, it’s important to remember your purpose. There’s no need in getting upset at anyone or acting a fool. I was there to do a great job and earn some extra money. I didn’t let anyone else’s attitude get in the way of that. I came to work and that’s what I did.
My goal going into my seasonal job was to make extra money for several reasons. Reason #1: My car has been acting a fool lately. It’s been something wrong with it every week. I literally saw my mechanic every week in the month of November. That’s my car’s daddy.
Reason #2: Bills- I was behind on several bills and medical bills, it was ridiculous. Reason #3: Savings- Because of reason number 1; my savings had dwindled down to almost nothing. That’s never good. You always have to have a little something for emergencies. As it often happens, shit could get real. I’m happy to say that my car is still up and running, I’ve caught up on all of my bills, paid off nearly all of my medical bills and my savings is back to looking like a savings account instead of the remaining link card balance at the end of the month.
