Guy Shares Experiences From His First Five Days Working At Target

We all know working in retail can be an absolute hell, but this account of a dude's first five days at Target proves there actually are decent days working in customer service. In just five days of tending to paying customers, he met a lot of...active...older people, some seriously funny weirdos, and a whole lot of cute kids. It may not be a gripping account, but it certainly is an entertaining and heartwarming one.

    Text - kimpossibooty Day Four: -The store is having a 10% off your entire purchase sale. I have a coupon to scan if anyone asks for it. I scan it if people don't ask for it if they're nice to me. I don't scan it if they're rude. Power is a new sensation. Power is a good sensation. - Because of the sale, we have been flooded with guests itching for a bargain. When I need to go on my break, the manager has to stand in front of the line and tell people to go somewhere else. As the line died down, I

    Text - kimpossibooty Day Five: -I open my register. An octogenarian woman approaches. She purchases bras and lingerie. I cry on the inside. It is too early for these images. -A small girl helped me put her parents bags into their cart. Every time I hand her a bag, she digs through it, announcing which things are hers and which are her parents, and putting her parents' items in the cart without the bag.
