ever dealt with obnoxious and/or ignorant customers on the job?

ya know.. the one that throws a tantrum, when one of their 500 coupons has expired; or the one that flies into a blind rage, b/c they've suddenly realized they have to wait in line like everyone else. gasp!

share some of your encounters.

Not yet, fortunately. However, I've delt with obnoxious/ignorant employees.

Every day of my life!! One time this customer screamed at me and called me an f*cking bitch because I wouldn't return a pair of jeans that were over a year old...he carried on and on about how I was accusing him of stealing even though I never said anything of that nature, swearing at me, yelling etc. just acting like a total asshole.

The line of customers who were standing behind him started to get backed up and they told the guy to stop yelling that I didn't do anything nor deserve it...I tried to get him to leave but he just wouldn't.
So I called my manager and told him there was a crazy guy up here at the the check out lanes... and he came and told the guy he was acting immature and not to come back lol.

All the time...and I find them amusing most of the time.
I had an old man call in leaving a message in our company box. He said our answering message is horrible and it was too long (when in fact, it's quite short compared to others...I've had my fair share) and as a company we just suck. Wow, it really was senseless! I couldn't help laughing out loud when I listened to the message. Mister old grumpy man. It was quite amusing, all over the answer machine message, haha.

Not yet, but I've heard some pretty terrible stories.

I don't believe in that "the customer is always right" bull for this very reason. We only work for the company, we are NOT the company.

Now to share a story I've heard:

The store in question has a very strict no receipt, no return, policy. A customer comes in with a blanket they were given as a gift, ten months ago. When the employee stuck by store policy, saying that there was not any proof that the blanket was bought at that store if the customer did not have a receipt, the customer cussed the employee out for doing their job correctly.

Why the customer wouldn't get off of their high horse and realize, they were just a customer like everyone else and that the store wasn't going to make a special "gold star sticker" exception for them, I do not know, but the employee did not deserve that abuse.

Not many. Just ones who bump into you or the prejudice ones. I have though dealt with rude, obnoxious employees the most.

I haven't been employed before but have seen these scenes =.= . Frankly I would just pay the cash and if I know that the coupon or w/e has not expired and i'm sure of it then I would use it. Using expired coupons just make me feel embarrassed once i'm caught and it won't do good helping my esteem.

LoL. This is funny. Nope. But some of the employees are just plain rude anyway!

Not exactly on the same subject, but still deals with rude, obnoxious people.

This one guy whose a school clown AND a flippin' jerk pointed out the obvious during one of my class periods, and I totally dripped with sarcasm when I responded. He said some VERRRRRYYYY rude things, among them b*t*h and a few other cuss words. God, I wanted to ******. And I still hate him to this date.

During my first hellish job i had to deal with crap like that all the time.
My favorite customers were the grumpy old men who complained about the smallest things

I don't have to deal with customers, but I do have to deal with lazy and immature coworkers that are all at least 10 years older than me.
