A few weeks ago I scored a full-time position in the jewelry department at Departo.* This is somewhat different work from my previous part-time position in Customer Service. I'd been kind of hoping I'd have to deal with fewer frustrating customers, but this isn't so much the case.
Customer: Is it okay if I try on these earrings?
Me: We prefer that you don't.
Customer: You prefer. So that means I have a choice?
Me: Mm... no.
