Millennial preteens wear sluttier underwear than I do
I rang up purchases for sixth-grade girls who could barely see over the cash wrap and it was jarring what they considered to be age-appropriate undergarments. When I was 12, I was wearing Fruit of the Loom briefs under my overalls. I was certainly not shopping at Victoria’s Secret for V-strings so thin you could thread them through the eye of a needle. I didn’t buy my first thong until high school, and even then, I’d secretly hand wash it so my mom wouldn’t find it in the laundry. Gone are the days when sexy panties were deemed big-girl weaponry. I blame you, Miley Cyrus.
High-end stores attract elitist clientele
Victoria’s Secret is a store of prestige. Thus, some clients boast a sense of entitlement just for shopping there. This includes my least-favorite breed of woman who wished to be hand-held around the store, then would ask for a five-for-$25 deal on the non-sale panties. You know, just because. Ma’am, I don’t make the rules. I make $8 an hour, so you’ll pay full price like everyone else.
I could spot a cheater by his purchases
Every once in a while, there’d be a guy with a wedding ring on purchasing a white bra in size 34A and a lacy red bustier in size 36DD. He’d wink at me, then ask for two separate bags. Let’s just say, that’s not the client I ever gift-wrapped for.
