I left a retail job a little bit before a coworker of mine did; we had been working together for over half a decade. I think he was better equipped to deal with the crappy work because he had this sort-of superpower to not put up with anyone's bullshit. I would frequently cringe at some of his interactions, but I was also a bit envious of his confidence at the same time

That's not super related to the story though. The final straw for him before leaving retail forever was when a kid pissed on the carpeted floor and no one from management cared. There were people whose job it was to clean the bathroom or pick up messes or whatever, but management didn't consider this particular incident to even be a big enough deal to ask someone to clean

He ended up doing what he could to clean it and quit very soon after for an even lower paying job. He still jokingly refers to this incident as "pee-gate."

My leaving story isn't as interesting or humorous -- I had actually intended to stay part-time because I ended up getting into an "okay" paying role that I legitimately enjoyed at the retail store. This only lasted for a few weeks though. During my orientation period at my new, "real" job, we were all given a list of benefits and this presentation ended up stressing that we could cash out our vacation time at any point, or have it roll over, or get paid out when we retire or quit. The retail job offered none of these things of course -- we would lose our vacation time year to year, and it was against policy to make any attempt to cash it out while quitting. I asked for a raise, roughly around the half-way point between what I made between the 2 jobs, got denied, and put my notice in immediately after. "This company really doesn't give a shit about me" describes most of these types of jobs that don't require an education, but eh. I've worked much worse jobs and I'm certain that there are many others out there working even worse than I ever had. Could do a lot worse than retail
