Weekend Roundup: A Day In An Employee’s Life

| Right | March 18, 2012

A Day In An Employee’s Life. This week, we share five stories that share the ups and downs (well, mostly the latter) of being an employee. If you’ve ever wanted to share with a friend what your job is like, send them this roundup!

  1. Teaching The Next Generation:
    Fold…unfold…fold…unfold…It’s a wonder more clothing store employees haven’t gone crazy!
  2. A Time To Laugh, But Mostly A Time To Cry:
    This one will get you teary eyed: A customer’s precocious little girl leaves a big, smelly surprise in the changing room.
  3. Mrs. Understanding:
    Teach your children by example…the example of poor, suffering employees, that is.
  4. In This War, There Are No Winners:
    When they say “stick it to the man,” they probably weren’t referring to the guy stuck cleaning up your mess with a mop and a broom.
  5. Nothin’ Like A Good Old Existential Meltdown:
    Customers often ask stupid questions, but on occasion they can have profoundly earth-shattering ramifications.
