i fucking hate every pompous motherfucker who acts like retail or food service jobs are for people who are stupid or lazy or that ending up in one instead of idk going to college and ~changing the world~ (lmfao) is the worst position you could be in ever. fuck you, we work hard, on our feet for several hours at a time dealing with total jackasses for customers who often don’t even treat us like we’re human beings, and we don’t get paid goddamn near enough for it.
and you know what, going to college doesn’t mean you’re above working a retail job, or any job, for that matter. you may be qualified for something that pays more but what good is that if you can’t get hired? if you need the money then you’re in no place to snub what we do, degree or no degree. lord knows in this economy that whatever education you have doesn’t guarantee you the job you forked over thousands of dollars to be qualified for anyway, so have a seat and have some respect for the people who accept peanuts an hour to be surrounded by grease, clean up after all of the shitlords who piss on toilet seats, have customers demand discounts and expect you to treat them like they’re special even when they should damn well know it’d get you fired, and have to be there on holidays instead of with their families because you assholes just have to get that discount on that flat-screen TV on black friday at midnight.
