1. The customer is NOT always right.

I know, you want to clutch your pearls in mortified horror right now, don't you? It's practically unanimous from retail workers all over that when a customer, or even a potential customer, throws this line out, it's hand-in-hand with a bad attitude. Hey, newsflash: being a customer is not an excuse to not be a decent person.

2. Being rude to the employees gets you nowhere.

Hey, we've all been there. It's frustrating when you go to the store or to that fast food restaurant and they don't have something or they can't use your coupon or offer you that discount. But these employees you're face-to-face with don't make the decisions. They make minimum wage and do as they're told. What do you think being rude will accomplish besides embarrassing yourself? I'm sure it feels good to take your attitude out on someone else but everyone is staring at you in disbelief while they shake their heads in shame. Stop it.

3. Repeat after me: We are not flirting with you.

It's 2017 and people STILL confuse genuine kindness with flirting. That barista is not flirting with you when she miles and hopes you have a nice day. The cashier is not hoping you'll ask him out when he hopes your weekend goes swell. We are not flirting with you, we're not!

4. We don't actually hate people.

Sometimes we only see the worst in people so it can be hard to focus on everything else but the truth is that we don't hate people. We just really don't like mean people.
