Working Retail Made Me Hate Most People

It’s NOT okay to talk down to store employees, bus drivers, bank tellers, or anyone who provides you a good or service. Why? Because they are people.

I believe that respect is earned and not deserved, but this isn’t about respect. This is about being a grown up and not yelling at a cashier because you don’t get what you want out of them.

You don’t get to behave poorly and still get what you want. It just doesn’t work that way.

Smart people know how to get what they want or need by being nice and reasonable.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
