I went on Norm Feutis' of RETAIL comicstrip fame... and clicked on the link to take a quiz to see how suitable you are to work retail, results are as following:
Your Retail Suitability Quotient is 67%. You are moderately suited to work in the retail industry. You see unreasonable customers as par for the course and have a good tolerance for abuse. You don't let the customers push you around, but you're smart enough to know that they're going to get what they want most of the time anyway. You may find yourself occasionally frustrated when a customer's behavior doesn't meet your expectations, but that's the price you pay for insisting on basic human civilities. You are fairly realistic about your retail overlords and recognize that they have no intention of taking care of you.
You know the game, but that doesn't mean you have to like it.
Thanks for taking the Retail Personality Test!
