Ugh. It's so fucking ignorant of people to just assume that the person serving their fries, or selling them a TV, or bagging their groceries, is any less intelligent than they are.
Makes my blood boil.
The worst part is knowing that there is pretty much nothing we can do to change customers' assumptions - mostly, the general public will still look at retail slaves and think we're too dumb for university and this is the only job we could get.
No-one should have to take that much shit and put up with it, but for some reason we do.
