14 things only people who've worked in Penneys will understand

One word: Saturdays. *scream emoji*

1. To start, the uniform is rotten

You haven’t been able to even look at a pair of black slacks since.

2. But that didn’t stop people asking if you worked there

No, I just adore wearing black polyester and a nametag.

3. There is no sorrier sight than the t-shirt, shoes, and knicker sections at the end of a long Saturday

You might ask why we didn’t just clean up as we went along, but have you even SEEN a Penneys on a Saturday? It’s a losing battle.

4. The area around the tills comes close, though

So much regret and indecision. And crisp packets.

5. You dreaded anyone asking you for a size from the stockroom

And that’s because the stockroom was massive and full of boxes and you didn’t know where anything was. Ever.

6. But at least it was a couple of minutes of respite from the floor

So quiet. So cold. Almost…peaceful.

7. The absolute frustration that was this

This is the reason you always put things back in the right place in shops.

8. And the mammoth task that was returning the stuff from the fitting room at the end of the day

Rails on rails on rails ON RAILS.

9. Christmas was literally hell on earth

And it started in October.

So many people, grabbing so much random tat. Giving out about all the tinsel being gone, like it was your fault. *sighs*

11. But it was great being on the tills, because you got to – gasp – sit down

SWEET RELIEF.

12. Until someone came up with a million things with no tags on and you had to manually input them all

I only came in here for bobbins and a packet of fairy lights 😳 #thankspenneys #primark #hohoho

Meanwhile, the customer is standing there making “Ha it must be free so” jokes. That’s helpful mate, thanks.

13. Yet despite all this, you were still grateful to get the first look at all the new stock

You spent your shift thinking about all the stuff you were going to buy before clocking in the next day.

14. And there was nothing like a great bitching sesh with a colleague

I can never resist! #primark #penneys #shopping #thankshunpenneys #ihaveaproblem

“I was in Kids today and a little girl let her 99 melt all over the baby-gros.”
“That is SHOCKING.”
“I know.”
