Welcome to Wrong Planet, and "ay oop" from t'other side o't moors.

Retail work! Eek! Hats off to you. I tried it many moons ago, and it completely squished me!

I've been in retail but I struggle too much now. Surprizingly at one time I was really good at it and became head of a department in a store... I then took a job on the railways.

Looking back, I was masking so much I just don't know how I did it for so long... But eventually things caught up with me.

Hi and welcome :)! Some of my earlier jobs, to pay my way through Secondary School, were in retail. Good to have you with us...
