(There is a new hire who has been working at our store for just over a week. Before moving states, he worked for many years as an elementary and middle school teacher.)

Me: *approaching the register* Hey [Coworker]! Having fun yet?

(At that moment, a group of children is actively tearing around the store, playing with loud squeak toys, throwing tennis balls, and generally making a mess.)

Coworker: You know, I used to love children. Now….*sigh* not so much.
Me: Welcome to retail.
