Keeping It Brand, Part 13

  1. I can’t help but laugh! I am in retail as well, and have been for pretty much every job I’ve had. I completely understand this story to the last word. You are an amazing storyteller, I look forward to what you post.

    1. I’ve found these are stories you just can’t make up. I find myself just standing there at work sometimes and just laughing out loud. Working with the public can be so exasperating sometimes but oh the stories we could tell!

      1. Exactly! I get a good laugh multiple times throughout my day. Every day is a new experience. Successfully working with people requires a unique type of person. Everyone who does it is not cut out for it.

      2. And you can always tell the people who aren’t cut out for it. They either disappear pretty quickly or they piss off enough other people.

      3. Those are the ones. I am not a fan of working with them, but every now and then they have it out with a customer and it is interesting to watch them try to dig themselves out of the hole they dug themselves into.

      4. What I love is when they’re saying something “behind the customer’s back” but the customer hears them. Then they try to backpedal. That is hilarious! Where do you work now?

      5. Oh yes! Don’t let it be a customer who is already heated about something they feel they are entitled to. That’s when the bell rings and the “Round One” sign goes up. Hilarious, when the associate has it coming to them. I work at Lowe’s. Where do you work?

      6. I work at Target. Our big team member phrase is all about keeping it brand, remembering that we own the brand while we wear the red and khaki.

      7. I bet I spend more time there than you. 🙂 Seriously though, one of the reasons I decided to work there is because I love so much of their stuff. You know, I think I’m going to check out your blog now.

      8. Yes, I bet you do! I wouldn’t mind spending more time there in exchange for a discount on my purchases. Thanks for checking it out. It’s still in the developmental stage, but feel free to check it out.

      9. Hey, we were all in the developmental stage at one point! I like what I’ve seen so far, by the way. But of course now I want to know your name.

      10. And of course all I had to do was check out your About page. I think I’m probably the only person who doesn’t go there first when visiting a blog. LOL.

      11. Lol, don’t feel bad. That is literally the LAST page I check on everyone’s blog (That’s IF I check it at all). Thanks again for checking it out!

      12. It’s pretty cool being that in the middle person. You are accepted by the majority, yet you aren’t popular. You have a small group of close friends, but you aren’t considered uncool.

      13. Of course I would have killed to be one of the cool people. I have my high school reunion coming up next weekend and I’m excited and nervous at the same time. Kind of just like high school. Interesting.

      14. Secretively I would have too back then. Today, I see what the popular crowd is up to, and I am better off than most of them. Not in wealth, but in mental state. Most of them are bitter, sad, depressed, and a whole host of other negative things. I hope you enjoy your reunion. Please blog about it. I am sure it will be a great read.

      15. It’s interesting how that works, that some people just don’t change or grow throughout the years. Imagine peaking in high school and then everything is downhill from there. Yikes. I wouldn’t know what to do with a life like that. I think life is all about shifting, changing, and growing into the person you’re supposed to be, then growing some more. I will definitely blog about it. It is sure to be a wild experience indeed.

    1. Thank you very much. I try my best to make sure they leave feeling at least somewhat good about the experience. Difficult to do when all they want is eggs, but most people wanted other things too.

      1. That’s one thing I definitely found out. It’s funny, but we had a Keurig coffeemaker on sale for $149. It usually sold for $150, and our sales doubled the week it was on sale. Go figure. It just makes me scratch my head sometimes!

      2. That’s the real key, isn’t it? Ask yourself if it is a necessary purchase (i.e. would I get it if it weren’t on sale), and if it doesn’t pass that test, don’t go for it on sale. You are just wasting your money. I’m glad you have your hat firmly on. 🙂

      3. It was a wonderful day. Good food, good family. And the kids had fun which is the best I could ask for. How about you? I hope the day treated you well also.

      4. Being inside is good for me but can be isolating. Mum visits on Sundays so thats great. otherwise just one person a day and when I get comments on post. I like comments on posts because its give the opportunity to interact with others. I just posted about my day. If you are curious, you should take a gander
