This book is very familiar to me. After I graduated I was working in retail for a few years. The conversations and thoughts Keiko has I recognise. The questions Keiko gets asked about why she still works in a convenience store is also something I recognise.

Convenience Store Woman by Sayaka Murata.

It helps that I like the protagonist but the man she tries to help was some what detestable when you first meet him.
