I’m essentially going to be posting ethnographic notes on my experience working in retail. In order to feel at ease with such an ethnographic experiment I should lay out what may become (or be perceived) as biases within the study:

  • This is my first retail job.
  • I am only doing it to pass my free time and save money for a camera kit.
  • As soon as I have said money for camera kit I will put in my two weeks notice.
  • I do not want to continue working in retail.
  • I have a low tolerance for bullshit.
  • I have issues with asshats of privilege who assume that retail/food service employees are somehow lesser beings.
  • My dad has always worked in food service.

I may add to this upon further self examination.
