Unfortunately I've been working there ever since.
I couldn't help but feel sad today. Today marks my two-year anniversary working at the arts-and-crafts store.
My God. Two years of my life given to that place.
When I first started, there were around 40 people. So many either left, were "infractioned out", or got fired.
Now there's only 8 "veterans" left. Everybody else started after me.
Such constant and high turnover is scary. I've seen so many managers and staff come and go and be replaced...only to happen all over again.
The name badge I wear to work everyday!
Retail can bring out the WORST in people and I swore I'd only quit when I found something else to replace it with. So far I haven't had much luck.
But thankfully I've become close to many of my coworkers and interacting with them on a daily basis helps make the job less miserable.
So for now I'm stuck at the crafts store but can't wait until the day comes when I can finally be done there!
