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.

Young women who work at department stores.
At first, I had considered fast food, but then I saw the ReTail girl at the clothing store. I chose to get some ReTail.

The profession of most homosexual males. This implies that the individual's income and sophistication is limited. Working class gay.
I don't want to go out with him. He's retail. Everyone at this club is retail.

A reminder as to the benefits of a corporate job. Sure, you may have a stiff neck from eye strain, but its beats anything vs. a job where you're treated as sub-human, have to meet sales deadlines, and will make piss poor change from commission. Also every month of December is treated as hell due to Christmas.
Person 1: "I fucking hate my corporate job; doing the same shit every day."

Person 2: "Highly doubt its worse than retail. Because its horrible being a depressed sales person."
