Everyone. I mean it.

THIS IS THE BEST POST

I HAVE EVER SEEN

EVER

they really do mean everyone

The first thing I noticed on my first day on the job is that in retail no one sits. Ever. It didn’t matter if it was at the beginning of my shift, if the store was empty, or if my knees, back, and feet ached from hours of standing. Park your behind while on the clock, went the unspoken rule, and you might find it on a park bench scanning the want-ads for a new job. Another quick observation: Working in retail takes more skill than just selling stuff. Besides the mindless tasks one expects—folding, stacking, sorting, fetching things for customers—I frequently had to tackle a series of housekeeping chores that Stretch never mentioned in our welcome-aboard chat. Performed during the late shift, those chores usually meant I’d have to stay well past the scheduled 9 p.m. quitting time. Mop the floors in the bathroom, replace the toilet paper and scrub the toilets if necessary. Vacuum. Empty the garbage. Wipe down the glass front doors, every night, even if they don’t really need it. It was all part of the job, done after your shift has ended but without overtime pay.

My Life as a Retail Worker: Nasty, Brutish, and Poor (via azspot)

It’s the fine print that comes with jobs like this that often make them burdens. Ballooning expectations for as minimal pay as possible.

(via invisiblelad)

Everyone should work retail, a retail Christmas preferably, once in their lives. It makes you a better customer.

(via mommapolitico)

^^^^ At least once in their lifetime. $1 tax credit for life with proof of compliance.

(via bilt2tumble)

Retail can be fucking brutal physically and mentally.  But because it never, ever lets up, I eventually got so used to it that I didn’t fully realize just how much of a toll my retail job had taken on me until I had to quit and suddenly I just felt SO MUCH BETTER ALL OF THE TIME.

cancerchild asked: Speaking as a white girl living in a society that, for whatever reason, caters more to my race than yours, I would like to apologize on behalf of all the racist assholes in the world. You are beautiful and an amazing cosplayer. Don't let the jerks in the world tear you down. <3 :)

msjayjustice:

This ask was intended to be kind and so I am responding with equal kindness. If anyone reading my response thinks that I am being mean or unfair, take a deep breath and read it again.

The reason society caters to white people more than black people or any other people, is because white people designed it to be that way. ‘whatever reason’ is white supremacy. White people explicitly invented the idea of ‘race’ to dehumanize black people and turn us into cattle that require no compensation for being worked to death. ‘Race’ was created to maximize profits for white people. The idea of ‘race’ comes from greed and greed alone.

Thank you for the compliments, but all of the racist comments I may hear and all of the racist treatment I may receive on a regular basis are so much bigger than me as an individual. Racism today is still used to reinforce the differences in status and wealth between our people, to widen the gaps between poverty and self sufficiency. To imprison and murder the innocent and allow the guilty to roam free to victimize others.

The racist jerks in the world are not tearing me down. They are regurgitating the racist ideals that they have been taught by their fathers before them. They are trying to tear down black people as a whole, to build up white people as the sole owners of beauty, intelligence and creativity. Whenever it is implied that someone is accomplished or doing well in spite of being black, THAT is why. 

I appreciate the sentiment behind your words, but your apology is unnecessary. It is very kind of you to reach out to others when you feel that they have been treated unjustly, but you can do more by spreading positivity and signal boosting worthy causes than you are accomplishing by attempting to apologize on behalf of all the racist people in the world. Take care.

I don’t think you’re being mean at all. You’re right. I was raised in a fairly sheltered home and didn’t realize how pervasive racism is until I was in 8th-9th grade. The schools I went to never taught us much about it, except that it happens and it’s bad. No kidding, right? Racism wasn’t tolerated at my schools, but we weren’t told about all the small, insidious ways it happens in day to day life. You explained more clearly in a blog post about white supremacy than any teacher I ever had in school. I find that disturbing. Kids need to be taught from the start about what is happening and how to stop it.

I want to share a story with you. When my cousin was in grammar school, a girl overheard him say to one of his friends,”I like white better than brown.” She told the playground monitor what he said and he was hauled into the principal’s office and his parents had to come in because the monitor and the principal assumed he was being racist, just based on what the girl told them my cousin said. He readily admitted to them that he did say it, but he and his friend (a black boy) were talking about their favorite candies. My cousin likes white chocolate more than brown.

The fact that racism is so common a problem that the adults in charge assumed that my eight year old cousin was being racist when he’s the farthest thing from it is absolutely devastating but also completely understandable, given the world we live in.

We are the only ones who can change our society and I say it’s about damn time it happens.

P.S.: I’m glad you knew that everything I said was meant in the most positive and supportive way. I realized after I hit ‘ask’ that the way I worded things might have come off as condescending and that is absolutely not how I meant it to sound. Stay awesome. :)
