(Besides the fact that I don’t like it, and it doesn’t like me).

  1. The customer is not always right.
  2. Rich ladies who talk to you like you don’t know much at all.
  3. Non-rich ladies who talk to you like you don’t know much at all.
  4. Cameras watching every move you make.
  5. Lying.  “Oh, you should definitely buy this $98 t-shirt.”  Go to Old Navy, fool.
  6. The customer is not always right.
  7. Indecisive people.  JUST PICK OUT A DANG BALLOON.
  8. Having to smile at everyone, lest those hundreds of cameras catch you frowning at someone.
  9. The people who think they are doing you a huge favor by noticing your name tag and then calling you by name.
  10. Having to pretend like I genuinely care, oh so much, about whatever it is you are looking for.
  11. Ridiculous training taglines such as “The 9 Pillars of Front End Service.”  Pillars, really?
  12. Customers who are willing to cause a scene and put up a fight over one dollar.  One. Dollar.
  13. The managers who look like they hate their lives, when they’re the ones making the money.
  14. Always being tempted to buy whatever it is you are selling (clothes, flowers, etc).
  15. The. Customer. Is. Not. Always. Right.
