My daughter and I were having a discussion about retail employment this evening. Our talk involved a rant I had with retail stores in general (subject of a later off topic thread), but afterwards it got me to thinking...
Many teens get their start in the working world at retail stores because they'll usually hire anyone with no previous work experience. I know from job related threads that many younger ADISC members presently work in retail. For stores that carry baby and children's items, what better people to have on the sales floor than *B/DLs. The items being sold wouldn't just be *things* because they're actually what we're all about. Whether they're fetish with us or not, we still enjoy baby/children's items. Infantilists could be the most enthusiastic workers a store like Toys-R-Us or Babies-R-Us could possibly have. Even larger stores like Wal-Mart or Target could greatly benefit by having us in their baby and/or toy depts. Who else knows so much about baby diapers? Who else can name many of the brands of all sorts of baby items? Who else knows all about the various paci sizes and styles? Who else would so enjoy playing with...err...demonstrating baby gear to customers like stollers, car seats, and high chairs? Who else in teen or adult years enjoy toys so much? *B/DLs, that's who!!! We could run circles around the sales people presently employed in those areas. I've always been a firm believer that store sales personnel should know their product lines. For infantilists in baby depts. it would be easy.
With the lower salary scales of retail sales workers you might not want a career in retail sales, but while employed in it you could have lots of enjoyment with what you're working with. Customers would also appreciate having knowledgable people in the baby and toy stores, too! If I were a teen again, that's where I'd want to start my working career. Baby/Kiddie retail is a definite niche for *B/DLs in the working world where we could really excel, and have a little fun while on the job too.
