The Frustrations of Being a Retail Clerk

This is an impassioned plea from someone who works in retail sales: Do not mess up my clothing racks and displays!!! I beg you. I am the one who gets to untangle all the bra straps after the rack has been pawed through and left in disarray. That sweater that someone carelessly lets fall to the sales floor? You guessed. I am the one who gets to bend over for the 7000th time and pick it up and rehang it. The fitting rooms don't clean themselves, in case you've ever wondered. Someone, in this case, I am that one, gets to turn all the inside-out clothing right side out and return them to their respective homes. After a customer rummages through a stack of tee-shirts marked size "large" hoping to find one marked size "extra small", someone gets to refold the crumpled garments. You guessed it. I am the lucky someone. I'm not complaining. I'm just saying......
