    Types Of Shoppers

    Types of Shoppers (draft classification essay) Working at a supermarket has given me a chance to observe the different ways human beings behave. I like to think of the shoppers as rats in a lab experiment, and the aisles are a maze designed by a psychologist. Most of the customers follow a dependable route, walking up and down the aisles, checking through my counter, and then escaping through the exit door. But not everybody is so dependable. The first type of unusual shopper is one that I call the amnesiac. He always seems to be going down the aisles against the normal flow of traffic. He

    Beauty sells products; that’s the argument that Marshal Cohen uses to justify this opinion about the hiring protocol at many retail stores. Cohen believes that by hiring better looking people, stores are able to promote their products and increase sales. It is understandable why companies make these selections, but people should not accept all of the discrimination as typical. By hiring only “good-looking” people, retail stores are showing prejudice and discriminating.
