My Love/Hate with Retail

I've worked in retail my whole career.  Hell, counting my work in high school and college summer jobs, I've worked in retail for most of what I've ever been paid to do.

And I love it.  I love the hustle, figuring out the game, the competition, and the wins.

But the older I get, the more a hate side has crept up.  I hate always having to be on, regardless of the time or day.  I regret how much time has been spent away from people that I love.  I suffer from the lack of sleep, the stress, and the physical and mental toll it takes.  I hate that I'm starting to hate holidays.

I'd write more about this love/hate with retail, but I need to get back to work...
