I always get complaints about other workers when I'm on the register. They will stand there and tell me how rude someone else was to them on the floor....like what am I supposed to do about it? Does my name badge say manager?

Then they ask for discounts on items that are on clearance and it's our policy not to discount on clearance items, even if they are damaged...the register actually won't do it. Then they will tell me that "The did it at the other store" And I'm just like that's not even possible because the register is incapable of doing that.

^ I just... People love to complain, and they love to try to get something for nothing.

I always think that, too. After working retail, I have so much more sympathy and patience for the people who are helping me when I shop.

You also learn how stupid people can be. I was in the toy section ant my first job and someone asked me where the cards were. I wasn't sure if she meant greeting cards or playing cards or baseball cards. (Since we were in the toy section) so I asked.

"Do you mean greeting cards?"

She replied

"No. I mean birthday cards and stuff."

These stories about working retail.

I work in a grocery store right now and we have a 100% proofing policy, so when I ask people for their ID's, some of them are like "Really? You know I'm old enough." Yes, I know you're old enough, but I need your date of birth to finish your order and I'm not going to change the policy for you.

Really. Wow.

^ I worked in a grocery store back in high school, too. Checking ID and coupons were the WORST.

When I was working in a department store, what I hated the most were the teenage girls who tried on EVERY single pair of jeans and then left them in a pile in the corner of the dressing room. Ridiculous.

I could spend hours venting.

My job is very strict in the dressing room. They can't leave anything on the room or we send them back in to get it. However I have been handed a pile many times which is just as bad. Then we get people who get mad that we have to count the items going in and coming out. They even make us hang them and pat them down to make sure there isn't anything in the pockets. Some people get furious when you do that. I'm just like dude that's policy. I'm not going to get fired because you're insulted that I patted down your clothes.

Patting people's clothes is a really strict policy. I've never heard of that before. I've seen restrictions on the number of items, though. It's smart. A lot of people try to shoplift out of the dressing rooms.

Stressed. I hit a big snag on a project I've been working on for the past two weeks at work. Now I basically have to start again from for the beginning. And it's already been delayed more than it should. So, I basically need to stay home all weekend and work on it.
