Thoughts on working retail

I’ve worked retail twice in my life–once at an arts and crafts store and currently at a gas station. I have amazing respect for those who have worked in this industry for 30 years. From behind the counter, you often see people’s true colors as they often go out of their way to be rude to you. My wife suggests it stems from them feeling that sales clerks are serving them and, therefore, are beneath them.

It’s always fun to get angry looks when explaining policies and procedures and how the angry looks seldom fade even when you utter the words, “I didn’t make the rules–I just work here.”
