Boss Trolled For Trying To Make Employee Work On Day Off

If you've ever worked a customer service job then you'll know the struggle of being called in to work on your day off - if you say yes, then you'll set a precedent to your boss, and if you say no? Then you risk getting fired for not being a "team player." It's all a bunch of BS if you ask us.

This story may or may not be fake, but the point there still stands...and it certainly still made us chuckle.

Retail Warriors Share Nightmarish Customer Stories

Retail workers have undoubtedly been one of the most under-appreciated class of workers since the dawn of mass consumerism. Being polite and helpful to rude customers all day for a wage that barely covers living expenses is soul-sucking enough when there isn't a series of commercial holidays intersecting with a global pandemic. Since the dreaded Black Friday is upon us, we thought we'd share a handful of retail horror stories from the subreddit r/TalesFromRetail for all the brave wage warriors out there. You're not alone and we feel for you.

It doesn't take a genius to know that working retail during the holidays is an absolute shitshow. But Twitter user @dylan_thyme took to the site to share how insane it is to work in a fancy grocery store in particular. From shows of extreme entitlement, to people who are apparently willing to throw away money, it's a thread filled with trashy atrocities - and of course, the token Karens.

The industry can be great; you meet tons of people, make tips, and eat a whole bunch of delicious free food if you work in a restaurant. Perhaps the biggest downsides are the whole being-poor thing, and the fact that you have to occasionally deal with horrible customers who make you want to punch a brick wall!
