I'm 36, PFan, and I cannot relate to it either.

I just found out that the girl I have a crush on at work (and who started throwing some serious hints my way tonight that she might be interested) is currently boyfriend-less.

This is a definite advantage over the majority of girls I end up liking.

Time to step up the game a notch.

I'm actually excited for my next work shift. What's this world coming to?

I remember working in retail from age 18-23 or so, and, for a lot of reasons, I loved it....helped pay for college, I actually learned some valuable lessons I still apply now, the comraderie a lot of us developed...the chaos of holiday shopping...but nothing was better than having a crush on a coworker there, and knowing that on a certain night, you'd both be working.

I really do enjoy retail, actually. I've worked a lot of really shitty jobs (call centres and fast food, mostly), but the two retail jobs I've had weren't so bad. I think it has something to do with the fact that you really get a sense of accomplishment when you do well and make a sale (although I don't make commission, unlike some of my co-workers).

I just wish it paid more, I'm making minimum wage and as a part-time job (10-15 hours a week), it's not really doing much for the ol' pocketbook.

I didn't make commission, either, but that was a good thing...it made me a more honest salesperson, and a better overall employee. I really did learn a lot at my retail gig...it was interesting taking marketing or econ or other business classes while working there....and, I'm still in touch with a bunch of people from there, which is great....we were a close bunch.

Yeah, that's true too. Everyone in the store is really close, despite the fact that we've got about 50-60 employees. Lots of social events too, there's a Christmas part and a pub crawl next weekend.

We were just voted in the top 3 "funnest" stores in the whole franchise across Canada.

ETA: Maybe I should convince work girl to come to one of those events...

I'm glad you experience that same comraderie. It makes the job a lot more fun. We were lucky...about 13 of us started within the same 6-month range, and of those 13, 11 of us worked there at least 3 years....

My last job had over 750 employees and every single person there despised their job, it was such a poisonous work environment.

Damn, I can't wait for Tuesday night
