An Average Day of Retail Work

(Author’s note: This does not necessarily apply to ALL retail work, mostly hardware retail, but if you relate at least in some way, like and leave a comment/thought! šŸ™‚ And this is merely meant in playful, witty– but oh-so-truthful– jest. But also SLIGHTLY satirical– no way on God’s Green Earth I’D get that many EPPs or credit card applications in a single day! LOL. )
