Irish Services Sector Sees Growth Despite Retail Staff Constantly Rolling Their Eyes At You



IRELAND’S service sector, made up of banking, real estate, communications and retail businesses, continues to grow steadily despite retail staff constantly rolling their eyes at you.

An Investec survey shows Ireland’s service sector grew in October and serves as yet another example of a return to some economic prosperity on the island.

However, many in the services industry have been quick to point out the growth in the sector was in spite of a large part of retail sector employees.

“Every time a member of retail staff tuts loudly and rolls their eyes at a customer, the service sector suffers slightly as customers lose faith in the industry,” explained consumer expert and economist Gerry Baldwin.

10 out of 10 Irish people are said to have experienced a member of retail staff in a shop roll their eyes in a passive aggressive protest at some outlandish request such as ‘do you have this top in a medium?’

While the sector as a whole performs well, there are fears retail staff will drag down the rest of the businesses.

“Look, we all heard about the retail worker who punched an elderly lady looking to buy a scratch card because she interrupted the taking of a selfie,” added Baldwin.

Economic experts have previously stated that retail workers, complex contract clauses have been a part of the problem.

“Well, during the Tiger years, obviously the unions won some key battles which resulted in retail workers gaining the right to talk to their co-worker about how fucking mental last night’s drinking session was before serving a customer,” confirmed Baldwin.

The concern isn’t just for the customers, though, as many retail workers develop health conditions associated with long term eye-rolling after years of acting the absolute ignorant bollocks.

“We’ve seen a rise of 10% in detached retinas following retail workers engaging in particularly aggressive eye rolls, our advice is to try channeling that passive aggressive behaviour into a more aggressive yet safer form,” advised optometrist Martin Reilly.
