What Kind of Shopper are You?

Now that Holiday shopping has kicked into gear, malls everywhere are being flooded with ravenous consumers. Having worked in the retail industry for five years (one of which as a manager), I can tell you that sometimes people can behave like animals. I’d say it was like they were raised in a barn but that would be an insult to people who grew up rural. From name-calling to mindless screaming, I’ve seen quite a bit of action in the retail trenches. I’d come home most nights irritable and drained. I’ve heard that a glass of wine every day can be beneficial to one’s health but probably not under these circumstances. The worst part is that so much of the stupid bullshit I face at the store could have been avoided if people were a little more polite, courteous, and/or understanding.

I’ve outlined my feelings in this video, and it doesn’t even cover everything. I could create a more extensive list but that would take the rest of my life.

Just a somewhat friendly reminder that retail workers are people too, with feelings, and a home they might like to visit in between ridiculously-houred shifts. Please be kind!
