“Your a mean one Mr. Grinch!”…yep, call me Mrs. Grinch because I officially HATE the holiday season. While the nostalgia of spending time with family is great and getting a few paid holidays is appreciated, the holidays don’t excite me anymore. I think working retail takes the enjoy of shopping and all the things that come with this time of year. To me when November all I think is Nooooooo…here come those horrible holiday customers. I understand YOU HAVE to get that perfect gift for your mom/dad/sister/coworker/whoeveryourshoppingfor but taking it on me if that PERFECT is not found will not help you in the end. Many people don’t realize that most retail workers work VERY LONG days during the holiday season and patience levels are very thin. Honestly many of us work genuinely hard to assist customers, but we all have a breaking point.
I just realized this became my “why retail during the holiday season sucks” rant. Okay, i will end this now!
APPRECIATE THE PEOPLE WHO HELP YOU THIS SEASON! OH AND HAPPY HOLIDAYS…I GUESS!
