Can I pay in pennies?

It’s not easy dealing with other people all day, every day. Even the most patient among us have our breaking points.

That said, it takes a special kind of person to be able to work in retail.

Day after day, month after month—and often at ungodly hours—these pillars of our society are used to the rest of us coming in, rain or shine, full price or sale, possibly carrying around children, and probably in bad moods. And we take it all out on them. Clearly, whoever said “the customer is always right” didn’t know what they were talking about.

Retail workers of Reddit were asked to share their absolute worst experiences and the biggest pet peeves that customers always seem to do, and their responses will have you questioning your own behavior the next time you’re at the register!
