Accurate post is accurate.
Reminds me of the time a lady told me whip doesn’t melt. Or a guy yelled at me for not understanding him/hearing him because he kept talking on the phone
For those in retail.
I worked in a Lil Caesars and a woman came in and wanted a sausage pizza with no sausage, but got mad when she was given a cheese pizza.
So when I worked at fitting room in Old Navy, a woman told me that a medium top was too small, and that the large top was too large. So she asked me to find her an “x-medium”. Old Navy carries x-small, small, medium, large, x-large, 1x, 2x and 3x. There is no “x-medium”. But she insisted, so I went and found her an “x-medium” (which was just a medium in a different color but the same top, same make, same EVERYTHING) and she goes very happily, “THIS! THIS FITS ME PERFECTLY! THANK YOU SO MUCH! See, you can do anything you can set your mind to!”
I’m a waitress at a big fancy resort, and once a woman asked me for a diet water and when I told her there was no such thing she demanded to see my manager (who then also promptly told her there was no such thing and brought her regular water).
Another occasion of stupidity occurred when a woman had been brought a steak cooked too much for her liking. I offered to take it back and bring her out a new one, cooked a little less, and she said “NO this one’s fine I just want you to cook THIS one a little less.” I then had to get the chef and have him explain why you can’t UNCOOK a steak.
When I was working at dunkin donuts there was this woman in the drive-thru who asked for a lightly toasted croissant and then started complaining that the croissant was warm. And wanted her money back, so she gave me the croissant back and I gave her the money and then she tells me “now i want my new croissant” she wanted a new one for free and as she was screaming at me this guy in a biker gang covered in tattoos leans over the counter in the store and yells “ma’am let me just tell you what we’re all thinking. fuck off, you stupid cunt.” I couldn’t stop laughing and she drove away in anger.
Most of the people like in the stories above know that they’re being totally irrational, but also know that if they complain enough they’ll most likely get something free or discounted. So really most of the the nonsensical fucks are actually just cheap fucks with no shame or respect for people.
as someone who’s worked at shopko, mcdonalds, and now walmart, these kind of customers are what we have to tolerate all the time. ugh. i’ve straight up had customers in walmart tell me I don’t know what the hell I’m doing just because we didn’t have what they wanted in stock. there was also a woman who once asked if we carried an item in a completely different department (I work in toys, she asked about a smokeless cigarette tray or such). when I tried to tell her it might be by the cash registers, she commented that since I work at walmart I should know where everything was. thank god my coworker had the courage to sass back a response that we aren’t robots and didn’t know everything about all the departments in the store. suffice to say the customer threw a fit and stomped off.
I work in customer service as well. Call center work and sometimes people on the phones are completely rude, irrational and abusive. There’s a fine line between paying for a product or service and expecting quality and then expecting quality plus people to bend over backwards for you and meet all your demands and on top of it to kiss your ass.
It’s not hard to be nice and calm even if there is an issue or a problem. If you feel the person you’re dealing with is not getting it done right, leave or call back or ask for a manger or someone else to help you and if you’re too much of a cheap ass to pay for said product or service, then perhaps you don’t need it anyway.
