8 Times Michael Scott Described The Horrors Of Working Retail

No one really knows the true struggle of working in retail, unless you work in retail. I have had the pleasure of working in retail for about three years or more, but every shift something entertaining always occurs. So today, I decided to have Michael Scott describe how fun working in retail truly is. For those who work in retail, sit back, relax and enjoy. To those who don't work in retail.. feel lucky.

1. Arriving at work.

Another day of fun –– NOT! But at the end of the day, your closer to getting a nice looking paycheck.

2. Doing Carts

I work two jobs; one being a grocery store and let me just tell you, I absolutely hate doing carts. I have done carts in the rain and the heat. It is not fun at all.

3. When you still have seven hours to go.

Workcangetsobusy! Itcanfeellikeyou havebeenthereforhours butinreality,it hasonlybeenanhour.

4. The rude Customer returns to your line.

IabsolutelyHATErudepeople. Ido, however, findithilariouswhenthecustomerswhowererudetome, returntomyline. Butallyoucandoissmile.

5. When your boss tells a joke.

Even when the jokes bad, just remember, they're in charge of your check. So, in that case, they are the funniest people in the world.

6. When a customer asks you a question that you do not even know the answer to.

Just because we work there, does not mean we know everything. And some things that the customers ask us, we might not understand... thank goodness for customer service!

7. Thoughts when the store gets super busy!

Sometimes, work can get extremely busy. To a point that there will be a line, going around the store, you are running out of bags, your manager is running around like a chicken with its head cut off and people are complaining. The only thing that will keep you going is the thought of your shift being over.

8. The end of the shift.

It's the end of the day! It is finally time to go home. After a long day, you clock out and head out of the building. Most of the time, after work depending on how long the shift is, you are usually exhausted.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
