Actual Conversation #105 - Where we get back on track and are reminded of why we left retail.

*yours truly is browsing the Valetine's Day cards in a display at the front of Five Below, searching for the perfect set of v-day school cards from when we were kids to hand out to coworkers. No reason, just for a little fun. Upon selecting the Scooby Doo ones (c'mon, it's Scooby Doo!) yours truly proceeds to the counter where a salesperson who looks every bit the roadie for AC/DC is waiting*

Salesdude: Hey, how's it going?
Me: Not too bad! Yourself?
Salesdude: *pause* *heavy sigh* I fucking hate setting up floor displays.
Me: Well alrighty then.

I enjoy when people are honest in response to that question and don't answer out of habit. I do not enjoy when they are OVERLY honest.
