Working in retail is tough. Some people may think a retail jobs are easy or beneath them, but I'd like to see them try dealing with the merciless consumers and war zone conditions of a staple clothing store.

Those who work at Old Navy definitely know how cutthroat the retail environment can be. Here are 21 struggles every Old Navy employee will understand:

Hearing the same damn Old Navy approved songs over and over

Make it stop, I beg you.

Knowing that you work for the least cool brand under Gap Inc

Let's be real: Banana Republic > Gap > Old Navy

Being forced to use a folding table even if you're an expert air folder

Now it's going to take two times longer to finish.

When people try to pay with Super Cash during the wrong time of year

Yeaaah I'm going to need real cash or a card. Sorry not sorry, Jennie.

Working a shift on $1 Flip Flop Day

Enough said.

Working a shift on Black Friday

Also enough said.

Always being the last store in the mall to close for the night

Because Jennie decided to ignore the 10-minute warning.

When you finish folding a table but Jennie destroys it 5 seconds later

Thanks Jennie. You're a pal.

"This didn't have a tag on it so it must be free."

You're not funny, Mike.

Being haunted by cheesy Old Navy commercials after work

There's just no escaping it.

Having to do the "Old Navy Fold" on every pair of denim

Every. Single. One.

When a customer blames you for misleading signage

It's not my fault you don't know how to read, Jennie.

Not knowing where to put back certain clothes on the sales floor

So you dump them in clearance.

"Did you even check the back thoroughly?"

No Jennie, I had my Quinceañera back there instead.

When a customer brings a gazillion things to the cash

But doesn't want 90% of it anymore.

Holding up a line because you have to do a price check yourself

Since everyone else is busy as hell.

Handling unruly hangers.

R.I.P. fingers.

When a customer brings more than 10 things to the fitting room.

Apparently, the limit does not exist to Jennie.

Ringing items faster than the computer can process.

Not efficient.

Half of your closet being from Old Navy.

Wardrobe problems.

Getting either too many hours or not enough.

There's never an in-between.
