Retail Horror Stories

It's been two weeks and my Remilia figutto has yet to arrive. Hopefully it doesn't end up as one of those SAL horror stories where it take 100 days for the package to arrive.


In other news, I just applied for a new job at an assisted living facility, as a "dietary aid" (helping serve meals and that sort of thing). I work as a cashier right now; it pays the absolute lowest wage, the hours are terrible, and the people are monstrously rude, always. And it's a very busy store, too, so I'm always running around with people yelling and complaining and I cannot stand them. It's a God-awful job and I really hope I can get a new one; the only positive is the many Retail Horror Stories I have now. For example:

>>huge woman tumbles in
>>stinks like dead fish
>>checks out at my line, coughing/hacking with what I can only assume is consumption or some sort of plague
>>gets money to pay, coughs into the bills before handing them over
>>OCD kicks in
>>force self to take the money, make change and put it on the counter
>>"WHY DIDN'T YOU PUT THE MONEY INTO MY HAND THIS IS DISCRIMINATION"
>>"I'm trying not to get sick, m'aam, it's flu season and--"
>>demands to see a manager
>>I get yelled at

  2. Did that really happen? Some people have no decency.

    It did, and yes, people have no decency. The second they walk into a store they lose all sense of responsibility, as they know someone else will have to clean up after them.

    The worst are people with kids; they'll knock over things and rip open candy bags and the parents just walk away. It's infuriating.

  8. A job at a retail store is almost the only job you can get here. It doesn't seem to be very nice.
