3) You will realize that this infamous saying ‘customers are always right’ is actually wrong and redundant. 9 out of 10 times customers are wrong.



4) You will get to work with people that are in a different ‘class’ with you. People that have no money to study, school dropouts, people that will just work these jobs for the rest of their life and people that are not English speaking. It will make you appreciate your life and you’ll realize how lucky you are to be in a college.
