Thick skin. Get some.

Who cares what others think?

Go to work. Work. Go home.

Repeat daily.

Join the military. The will fix all of that for you and you'll get paid for it, plus dental, medical and possibly be able to travel the world.

No, I'm not kidding. Accomplish that and the rest of your life will be easy.

OP is transgender. Or was. I think she's changing back to male now. There is a long history of mental illness so not sure any of us would want him/her in a military setting.

I donít normally suggest counseling in these types of situations but in your case I believe you should seek some kind of ďhelpĒ in getting past this. You are the first person I have ever heard of that thinks Walmart might break them.

Not trying to be mean, but have you never stood up for yourself in life? There are all kinds of sensitive people in this world, but they work and function like everyone else. If I may ask....what makes you special?

you usually get what you give....ive worked retail most of my life and really enjoy some of my customers..... I learned early on.. kill em with kindness....be polite...and courteous..and if they are being a dick......it really stands out..

you cant control others but you can control yourself..

boss's can make your life miserable.....but set high goals for yourself..... rely on internal motivation...not external and do the best you can..

for 90% of the population from customers to coworkers....they will mirror you...
you don't pet a growling dog......so if you have one challenging customer....deal with it and move on.

Hate to say this, but every workplace its ugly, overweight no one wants women that cause trouble. The beautiful ones where men want to hit on are quiet, and polite and do nothing to make others mad at them.

I have had this happen more than once its not uncommon.
