Retail doesn’t pay enough to have to put up with all the crap they do. Customers can be impossible to communicate with and sometimes you just need to say a little white lie. Other times, you do it because you just feel like it. It’s great.
As a waitress, I would thank people for being so kind to me because my last table had made me cry. It wasn’t *always* a lie and it meant I made more money that day. They feel good and I get paid, who cares?
People on Twitter are sharing the funny lies they tell working customer service jobs that make their life a little easier. These are a real goldmine if you work in customer service.
