One of the shittiest professions...One that causes much depression, psychosis, anger, jealousy, frustration, and anxiety. It is extremely degrading. They never pay people what they are worth; the workers have to deal with a bunch of crap while getting paid peanuts.
I had to go to therapy after working in retail for a decade.
People treat me like I'm stupid because I work in retail.
I work at a retail job where people don't get raises, but instead there's a shitty "Employee of the Month" reward.
I work in retail; therefore, I cannot afford to pay back my student loans or take nice vacations.
