Retail Staff Have To Shoulder Many Burdens

, , , , | Right | April 21, 2021

A woman comes storming out of the dressing room while I am browsing a rack nearby. She gets right up in the face of the attendant.

Customer: “Your clothes are broken! It says it should fit but it’s not fitting, and I’ve tried everything! It isn’t working!”

She continues to shout in this vein for about half a minute, not letting the attendant get a word in edgewise. Finally, she pauses to take a deep breath, and the attendant is able to speak up.

Attendant: “Ma’am, it might fit better if you straighten the shoulder.”

The woman just stares at her blankly, possibly confused that her verbal punching bag was talking back. The attendant reaches over and fixes something about the shoulder of the shirt the woman was trying on, leading to the lady continuing to stare for a few moments, before finally rebooting.

Customer: *Very cutesy voice* “Oh… Well, that’s much better. See!”

She then turned around and stalked back into the dressing room, while I shared a commiserating head-shake with the attendant.
