Anyone who has ever worked retail will know what a thankless and completely exasperating job it is. Dealing with the customers’ ridiculous demands and claims with a fake smile plastered on your face… It’s an experience you wouldn’t wish upon your worst enemy. Often you feel like you could just start screaming or simply curl into a fetal position and cry. But you keep buggering on, day after day, while slowly losing all faith in humanity… Here are 30 examples, courtesy of Diply, of people and their retail-related struggles.
