Everything Retail Workers Would Say If They Didn't Want To Keep Their Jobs

Yes, we are here to serve you, but we are not your slaves.

I LOVE what I do. I'm a retail manager for a successful clothing company at a really busy location. I get to be around what I love all day (fashion), and I get to meet and help people from all over.

I get to manage alongside a team of amazing managers as well as teach an aspiring new generation of sales and stock associates. What's not to love?

Those are only a few of many perks of my job...Now onto the not-so-great things.

Yes, we are here to serve you, but we are not your slaves.

We are human beings with feelings just like you. You don't get to see the emotional distress my co-workers and myself go through at the end of the day.

Sure, yelling at us will save you $2 off your $10 total but is it worth it?

I've seen it all, and I've come out stronger because of it but not everyone has the same heart as I do.

We deeply apologize that your coupon is expired. We're sorry, we can't always combine promotions for you. We're sorry we don't currently carry that item in the size you want in stores — but we have it online!

We will ALWAYS do our absolute best to ensure you, the customer, leave our store happy. No matter what.

The only thing we'd appreciate in return is the respect we deserve as human beings. Some of us end up sacrificing time with our family and friends on holiday weekends and on holidays in general in order to be there for you. Please try to be kind if you can. How you treat others says a lot more about you than them.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
