#26: That’s Hilarious
Customers who try to joke with the workers often have good intentions, but the thing is, workers aren’t always in the mood for stupid jokes. They have to deal with people all day, put on a smile and laugh at their jokes, and it gets pretty tiring. You don’t always feel like forcing a laugh, especially when you’ve heard that joke so many times before.
Every customer thinks they’re the first ones to say something clever or funny, but retail workers have heard it all before. Of course, they can’t say that to the customer, because that would be rude, and part of working retail is being polite to customers. So, the only thing they can do is laugh about it later with their coworkers.
