The Joys of Retail

Christmas is fast approaching and it brings some not so fond memories of working sales jobs at a popular department store during the Christmas season. In addition, I was working in the toy department at the time. The funny thing is it was not the children who made a complete and utter mess in the store. It was the adults. At the time, Star Wars Episode 1 The Phantom Menace was just being released in movie theaters and they had Star Wars figures and toys out the butt. Another coworker and myself interrupted two adults (one was at least in their late 30s while the other was probably in their early 20s) who where spraying shaving cream all over the Star Wars action figures. They took off running out of the department when we caught them and we were left to clean up the mess. You would think adults would have more sense than that.
