Jobs. Can’t live with ’em, literally can’t live without ’em, because they provide you with money that you trade for things like food and shelter from the elements.
But also you get to wear fun flair and talk to angry customers all day about stupid policies that you didn’t come up with! So it’s not all bad!
On the real though, the job market for younger generations absolutely suck and we gotta do something about it. Something more than just tweet funny complaints, though, that’s definitely a start and we should laugh at those for a minute.
11. Wait, wait
I’m really not gonna sincerely apologize for a thing I have no control over.
i said “sorry for the wait” to a customer today and then she said “no you’re not”. you know what you’re right

Staring into the void, waiting to be home.

8. Take a tip
“If they want more they should work for it.”
I brought you the things you ordered, that’s my job, pay me.

7. The imbalance
An absolutely daily thing.

6. Use and abuse
I’m not sure you DO know.
Why do customers give ya actual verbal abuse for ten mins straight then go ‘I know it’s not you, it’s not your fault’. Yeh I know it’s not

Don’t let the man get in your way.

2. On the level
It’s frightening and you can never unsee it.
Until you work in food or retail you will never understand the level of stupid that exists in our world

1. Hand it over
Wait, I totally forgot I’m an octopus.

Please be nice to the lower-level employees you interact with every day. They’re going through it. Don’t be a part of the problem.
