Am I wrong, or am I entitled to choose not to disclose personal information to customers? When perfect strangers come in and ask where I live, how many hours I work, what days I work, how much I'm paid, etc. Is it not perfectly reasonable that those things are none of someone's business? I'm asked these questions regularly. I'm a private person, I don't think working customer service means I have to be an open book and discuss my schedule with people because they see me a lot and want to know why. Would anyone go into a lawyer'a office and say "Geeze you're here again? They've got you working a lot. You must live nearby. How many hours do you work a week? Whadda they pay you? Better pay you for that!" It'd be inappropriate right? So why is it okay to ask that of a cashier? Why am I called a bitch for being 26 and thinking that my work schedule is my business and doesn't require discussion with a bunch of strangers? Correct me if I'm wrong, it just seems like I'm entitled to politely not answer questions that most people don't have to answer at their jobs. —Opinion curious.
