If you’ve ever worked retail before, you know that it’s not always glamorous. Cleaning up inventory spills, dressing room wardrobe malfunctions and weird bosses are things you just have to get used to. You also probably have a ton of hilarious stories about strange encounters with customers.
The bigger the store, the more interesting people you see come through the door. One new Target employee proved this theory right with his recent documentation of his first week of work.
The employee, Tom, took to Tumblr to share his stories. His posts have since gone viral. From selling lingerie to an old woman to customers getting trapped in doorways, his first day yielded some pretty funny moments. Read his reflection below.
His humorous spin on his first day encounters is really what makes the post. Day two was just as interesting and included an intimating farmer, a nasty accident in the baby isle and also an extremely polite three-year-old. See below.
The stories don’t stop there. Day three was equally as entertaining.
Once again, his sarcastic tone is definitely what has made the posts go viral. Day four does not disappoint and included dad jokes, a Harry Potter look-a-like and a baby feud.
Day five was the last of the Tumblr posts, and is just as funny as the employee’s previous four.
262 adult diapers, now that’s a lot. And speaking of a lot, Tom’s Target posts have garnered over 197,000 notes on Tumblr. It makes you wonder if Target has seen his hilarious documentation, and if it has had any effect on Tom’s employment.
