What Retail Has Taught Me and Other Jazz

on March 10, 2014

I Think I Like You People

After working for Kohl’s, Wal-Mart, Beall’s, Texas Furniture and Toys “R” Us, this is what I have to say about it all:

  • If you sign up to work in retail, you’re signing up for verbal abuse from customers.
  • Some of the hardest working people are the most underpaid.
  • When you work with the public, if you don’t find reasons to laugh, you’ll cry. (And even then, you’ll probably still end up crying at some point. Because people suck.)
  • Going to Target after your shift ends and keeping your red uniform on = bad idea.
  • Trust no one fully.
  • Daily hugs make a difference.
  • Daily smiles make a difference.
  • When the day is horrible as can be, use pointless optimism. Even as you don’t believe it, tell yourself the day will be delicious, the sunset will be beautiful.
  • Communicate.
  • Carry your own weight.
  • Jump at chances to help people.
  • Amuse yourself.
