Spare a moment to think about the poor the souls who will be sacrificing their Christmas to serve the dismal holiday shoppers this year. That’s right, retail workers will have it rough over the next couple of weeks, and we should all make an effort to be extra kind to them whilst finishing our festive shopping.
Working retail at Christmas time has every employee at some point in time in their warehouse asking for an Advil and a minute to cry.
