#153: Abre Los Ojos.

You can always tell between those who have worked (or have had parents who have worked) in retail, and those who have not. The difference in attitude is immense.

A person will never fully appreciate the full vitriolic nature of the human bean until they have gone through the trial of the part-time position in a general-public-facing position. Public-relations positions in corporate offices don't count, I'm talking real Joe Public consumers, not targeted clients.

The world would truly become a more understanding (if resentful) place, if it became mandatory practice for everyone to spend at least one summer holiday working in a local cinema/restaurant/convenience store/coffee shop/cafe/supermarket/takeaway/video store/take your pick.

I'm serious about this. Wars could be prevented.
