It’s a well-known fact that working in retail is the farthest thing from a walk in the park. Of course, there are some stores that aren't complete nightmares, but I'm sorry ladies, the popular fast-fashion store I worked at was the worst.

Yes, I know, fast-fashion clothes are always trendy, and for the price, they aren't too bad! But try being behind the cash register, and you'll see that it is a completely different world. I worked in a fast-fashion retailer for two years. Two. Years. I've seen it all. From rude customers to odd liquids on clothes that someone decided to try and hide in the fitting room (yes, it actually happens), here are just a few reasons why you shouldn't work retail:

1. The customers are actually terrible.


2. You will always find the clothes you just picked up back on the floor the second you turn around.

Seriously??? Can you guys look at clothes like a normal and calm human being??

3. You will get asked ridiculous questions.

No, just because the price tag fell off doesn't mean it's free!! Stop asking!

4. You will always leave later than your scheduled shift.

Don't even try asking to leave early either. Oh, and I can guarantee that your section of the store will not be done by closing time.

5. The fitting rooms are honestly terrifying.

But hey, it's always a surprise when you walk in there. One second there's a Mount Everest sized pile of clothes, the next second there's a child smearing their sticky fingers all over the mirrors.


6. There are always people trying to steal.

They're usually mean about it too. But also do you really have to steal those $1.90 camis?

7. The sale section.

Or should I say the Bermuda Triangle?

Summer Slump

Summer isn't alway just fun in the sun.

Summer Slump

Summer is a time for fun in the sun, hanging out with friends, and living it up, but for some people, that's not the case. Summer is a nightmare for idle minds. Let me explain what I mean by that. For people with mental illness having the extra time to think and relax can be devastating for their mental health. Now, this isn't a problem for everyone but for some people who suffer from mental illness, this is a reality.

NYC Classrooms struggle with marijuana and high students

The Cannabis landscape has changed, and so have what schools experience

The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) reported that about 35.7% of 12th graders in the U.S. had used marijuana in the past year, and 11.8% reported daily use. As for coming to school under the influence, specific statistics can be hard to come by, but there is concern that the increasing social acceptance of marijuana may lead to higher rates of use among teenagers.
