looks like snowflakes raising snowflakes...


minimum wage jobs kids get in high school are rarely "enjoyable" or catering to their skills or abilities. It is a job for them to learn how to deal with responsibility, customers, bosses, schedules and expectations. Stick it out; unless there is a better job. Quitting all things you aren't thrilled about is a horrible lesson.

Sure she can quit, but what other job could she realistically get that won’t have a similar degree of interacting with the public?

Maybe make a list of potential employers/jobs and she’ll see the situation will probably repeat itself in one form or another no matter where she goes.

She was never taught how to say "excuse me" to someone who is in the way? It's not the customers' fault that she doesn't know how to maneuver around someone who is blocking her line of travel.

It's impossible to get around people in an aisle and maintain distance. At my local grocery stores, aisles are one lane and people - including staff - are expected to wait until the person ahead of them moves in order to maintain distance. Not everyone does it, but that just puts staff more at risk.



I can't imagine how stressful it is for staff to have to be around people who ignore distancing all day.
The one lane practice is stupid because it ignores the fact that viruses dissipate when they are in the air. Whoever came up with the one lane concept obviously never took basic Chemistry.

Buttercup needs to buck up and learn some coping skills. And 16 ain't too early.
