2. The amount of waste. I worked in a clothes store for years and when delivery arrived every single item had to be unwrapped. A pair of socks, jeans, a pair of £3 earrings etc., every last thing comes in a plastic sealed bag. We’d throw away enough rubbish to fill a huge dumpster easily before the store even opened every day.
3. We HAVE to ask if you have our “X” card. Managers are often discreetly observing transactions and writing up little feedback cards. We’ll lose our jobs if we keep skipping that question and we dislike asking as much as you dislike being asked.
4. If you’re a local TV weatherman, or the radio broadcaster for the Major League Baseball team in the city, we don’t have a special discount just for you. Both would come in frequently, and neither ever expected to pay the full price for anything.
