Many people got to Walmart on a regular basis. As a college student, I go to Walmart for many reasons. After some serious consideration, I have decided there are only 5 types of Walmart trips.

1. HURRY UP! WE GOTTA GO!


Go to Walmart. Get what you need. Get back to campus before you're considered late. If you take too long you may or may not need to change outfits in the car.

2. Goofing around

Okay, so maybe you don't jump headfirst into a low-key death trap, but you still might do some silly stuff while walking around.

3. Grocery shopping

Even if you could, somehow, get only the food you needed then it would still probably break your bank. Therefore, go ahead. Buy ALL OF THE RAMEN.

4. Grocery shopping while hungry

NEVER EVER DO THIS! This is how you end up broke with a cupboard full of Ramen, mac and cheese, and Little Debbies treats.

5. Shopping while broke

As a college student, I am always broke. However, there is a difference between a broke college student and so broke you can't even impulse buy a candy bar college student. If you're the later option, then I feel bad for you.

I'm A Woman And You Can't Convince Me Breastfeeding In Public Is OK In 2019

Sorry, not sorry.

Lately, I have seen so many people going off on social media about how people shouldn't be upset with mothers breastfeeding in public. You know what? I disagree.

There's a huge difference between being modest while breastfeeding and just being straight up careless, trashy and disrespectful to those around you. Why don't you try popping out a boob without a baby attached to it and see how long it takes for you to get arrested for public indecency? Strange how that works, right?

So many people talking about it bring up the point of how we shouldn't "sexualize" breastfeeding and seeing a woman's breasts while doing so. Actually, all of these people are missing the point. It's not sexual, it's just purely immodest and disrespectful.

If you see a girl in a shirt cut too low, you call her a slut. If you see a celebrity post a nude photo, you call them immodest and a terrible role model. What makes you think that pulling out a breast in the middle of public is different, regardless of what you're doing with it?

If I'm eating in a restaurant, I would be disgusted if the person at the table next to me had their bare feet out while they were eating. It's just not appropriate. Neither is pulling out your breast for the entire general public to see.

Nobody asked you to put a blanket over your kid's head to feed them. Nobody asked you to go feed them in a dirty bathroom. But you don't need to basically be topless to feed your kid. Growing up, I watched my mom feed my younger siblings in public. She never shied away from it, but the way she did it was always tasteful and never drew attention. She would cover herself up while doing it. She would make sure that nothing inappropriate could be seen. She was lowkey about it.

Mindblowing, right? Wait, you can actually breastfeed in public and not have to show everyone what you're doing? What a revolutionary idea!

There is nothing wrong with feeding your baby. It's something you need to do, it's a part of life. But there is definitely something wrong with thinking it's fine to expose yourself to the entire world while doing it. Nobody wants to see it. Nobody cares if you're feeding your kid. Nobody cares if you're trying to make some sort of weird "feminist" statement by showing them your boobs.

Cover up. Be modest. Be mindful. Be respectful. Don't want to see my boobs? Good, I don't want to see yours either. Hard to believe, I know.

10 Things Being A Retail Manager Has Taught Me

Being a manager is always hard, but being a manager in retail is a league of its own.

43

Working in retail has really changed me and how I think about life. It is true that I am an optimist and an idealist to a fault, but those traits are overshadowed by the way I now react because of my experience working as a retail manager. I have been at my current job for a year now, and I have been the acting manager for six months.

Being a manager comes with a lot of responsibility. When you work under someone else, you can look out for yourself. But when you have people working for you, you have a duty towards nurturing them and their talents. I see myself as a natural leader, but I really had to come into my own when I first got promoted to the position. I didn't have any aspirations toward becoming a manager. I was offered it and so I accepted it.

Looking back, I really should have thought about the decision more. I said "yes" without weighing my options. Do the pros outweigh the cons?

Just like the food industry, retail workers deserve more credit than they are given for what they do and have to deal with on a daily basis. The higher up you go in the chain, the easier it becomes to be and feel overburdened by everything.

It has been six months and though I've grown, I still have a long way to go. I know being manager has taught me a lot:

1. People show their true selves when they don't get what they want

We want what we want, but we won't always get it. Some people cannot accept this as the truth in their reality and so they fight you. You can tell a lot about a person by how they react to not getting their way. When people don't get what they want, they will be their most real.

2. It's okay to walk away from a difficult person

When someone is intentionally difficult before you even begin interacting, it is okay to breathe and take a moment to process what just happened. Sometimes the best option is to walk away from the source of stress. Other times, it's okay to keep moving on around it because time is moving on, despite how you feel. If you can, you should step away from a difficult person. Maintain a semblance of sanity.

3. Keep work at work

Don't bring work home with you. Being on the clock means being the most productive you can be at the job. Once you clock out, you don't have to take on any other work-related problems. It is your problem when you are in charge, but after that, it's only your problem if you allow it to be. Have separate mindsets between your business and personal lives.

4. Being respectful doesn't mean allowing others to walk all over you

Everyone is allowed to have their own opinions. Opinions are not facts. You are not what they make of you. You don't have to bend to their whims. It is your job, they don't work there.

5. The customer is *not* always right

Allow customers to argue, but don't let any of them get away with imposing their way onto you. They want things and will behave in a manner that might get them what they want. Words are words. They only take on meaning when put together in a way that makes sense to others. Don't let a customer push their version of being right onto you.

6. You can argue with a customer 

Arguing is not a shouting match. It is an exchange of views about a specific stance surrounding an issue. Persuasion can happen in either direction. Arguing is not bad. It can help with getting a better understanding of how people think.

7. You don't owe anyone a service

Do not give in to impossible demands. Just because you offer services, doesn't mean you are obligated to provide certain people those services. Customers choose the store. They are not forced into that choice.

8. Honesty, especially when harsh, is exactly what employees need from their boss

When the circumstances allow it, be as honest as possible with your employees. They will appreciate you telling them what's wrong.

9. Establish clear boundaries with employees from the start

I made the mistake of being too nice and thinking my co-workers are my friends. I let my personal and business lives overlap. I gave them everything and they took advantage of my kindness. Being a good boss requires treating everyone the same by holding everyone to the same standard, starting from day one.

10. Being selfish is the key to winning and surviving every day

You have to preserve yourself: your mental health, your physical health, your energy, your time, etc. Think of you as the most important person. If you are not 100%, how will your team perform?
