Work

ARRRGGGHHH - ok, I promise next time I write I will try to say positive things....

BUT TODAY I AM SO FRUSTRATED!!!!

It was first day with no managers - and that wasn't so bad. Store didn't blow up or catch fire. ^^

but O_O !!! Don't people understand manners?

1. just becasue I work retail does not make me a servant, stupid, or anything related to those two.

2. if you want to try on the ENTIRE store, fine - but why leave all the clothes in a crumpled pile on the floor? SILK WRINKLES.

3. I will not risk my job to break policy because you yell at me. So when i say something is against store policy and I can't do it DO NOT YELL AT ME OR I WILL CALL SECURITY.

4. the entire mall cloese at 9. It has since I was 2 years old. it closes at the SAME time EVERY night. and when we turn off the music, lower the gate and start closing registers....THAT IS NOT YOUR CUE TO ENTER THE FITTING ROOMS! ....strangly enough, we like to leave BEFORE midnight.


.....after about 9 years in customer service (started when I was 14) I have come to one conclusion...everyone should by law have to work retail at one point in their life so they understand and treat employees better! We don't have control over store policys, shop coverage or mall closing times, so stop taking it out on us ^^;; especially since we can't yell back ^^;;


... though I can't be too upset. being busy and frustrated kept me from being too sad today. ^^;;

yes retail sucks... i have to say i hated having fold clothes that ten seconds ado i just folded because some customers felt the need to check the size by unfolding the shirts and then leaving it in an entirely new place than where they found them *damn you limited 2*.....

however, i would take customers like that rather than when i was waitressing.. there have been times i wanted to spit on someones food but i don't since thats hella gross and whats a few curses and being called incompetent for * not my fault you screwed reservations or that the food is slow since you ordered something that takes long to cook but hey yell at me anyways* sorry i ranted....

it gets better..... someday this will be just a stepping stone for you

yeah-> retail was Too Hard for me to manage... I am impressed that you can. [Heck, working on a Helpdesk was hard enough and leaving it for a job with no customer contact=The Happiest Day of My Working Life]

Gambatte!
