If you’ve ever worked retail you know the customer isn’t always right
I worked at a bookstore in college and would find books in certain sections with entire chapters RIPPED OUT! Yes people wouldn’t just steal the book (which is bad enough) but they would rip out stories and leave the rest behind.
(btw these were not children’s stories. Let’s just say they were in the adults section.)
On Twitter this week retail workers came together to unite in their frustrations with the hashtag @ThoughtsWhileWorkinginRetail and it quickly started trending

When you greet a customer “Hi” and they see you and don’t say anything or acknowledge your existence

At the bookstore so many customers put books back in the wrong place making them IMPOSSIBLE to find!
And forget finding them in the back.
What guests think “the back” looks like:

So when someone came in and asked for one I would “Go in the back” look around and come back out and say “I’m sorry we’re out but I can special order a new one for you.”
