News, I work in a charity shop – what it’s really like, from POO in donations, ‘Balenciaga’ trainers & odd customer questions: detailed suggestions and opinions about I work in a charity shop – what it’s really like, from POO in donations, ‘Balenciaga’ trainers & odd customer questions.
A WOMAN has given hilarious insight into what it’s really like to work in a charity shop.
TikTok user Ash, who has more than 840,000 followers, shared a series of funny stories from the shop floor – including unwrapping donations to find poo, and the bizarre questions she has been asked by customers.
In one video – jokily captioned “retail will be the death of me I swear” – the woman explained how a female customer picked up a pair of shoes from the shelf each, with a £4 sticker inside.
Ash recalled: “She said to me ‘is that £4 each’?”
Speaking to the camera, she sarcastically said: “Yes, it’s £4 each. We sell individual shoes here in this shop. You can just pick a shoe and pick another shoe. We don’t sell pairs.”
The witty clip has been watched more than five million times, and received over 540,000 ‘likes’ – leaving many viewers in stitches.
One person commented: “Working with the public is the worst!”
