Oh, yes.

I had a lady walk up to the front desk and start raging because there was no ironing board in her room. She insisted our pamphlet said there would be ironing boards in our hotel rooms when they plainly said guests were supposed to come to the front desk to request them. She was cursing and yelling even with other guests and their kids in the lobby waiting.

Another time, a guest called to ask if we had two extra pillows. We did, and I offered to take it up to their room, but he said he'd come down to get it himself. Since his room was right above the lobby, I waited for him outside. I heard someone running into the railing, laughter, and people talking about how drunk they were. A few seconds later, the guy staggered into view, saw me, and then told me they were just kidding. He could barely stand and he'd chosen to use a steep staircase while drunk lol....

I'm more of the customer guy.

Ever call up rogers tech support and purposely ask stupid questions repetitively to piss them off?
Then call back and bitch about their bad service?
Then get a free iPhone?

I sure have.

sometimes, im ashamed to bring my mom with me coz she's a nagger, especially when she gets the wrong order.
I do think, employees should smile (whether it's fake or not)
it's a bit insulting when they frown, i get the feeling they dont like serving me and this negatively affects my mood.

I'm quite patient with the customers at GAME

For example, this old lady came in, in her 80's, clueless about games and wanted to buy:

X-Box 360 Elite
Kinect
AND 4 games for her grandson.

She was also "that" type of granny so I tried to convince her to get the package which has the Elite and Kinect in one, and you also get 4 games for £20 with it, but she wanted to buy everything separately. I was like "But you get better value with the package" .......

whatever....I had no choice but to let her buy all the things separately and she blew out SO much cash, she could have saved around £180 had she listened to me. I tried I tried

I've had my share of this.

Which is why, i never get annoyed if the person behind the counter isn't all smiles and good vibrations. Because you know what, maybe they had a shitty fucking day. Or 10 minutes before me was someone retarded.


As for specifics. Years ago, things sort of got out of hand. ^^
(I started writing this story, then realised it was so long no one would read it.) So looong story very short.
Crazy middleeastern macho tard gets extremely agro, i don't back down. He vows to have him and his friends ready when i'm off work.
Friend of his, is apparently a guy i had had run ins with over the years. Friend shows up to scope out store. mean mugs me, leaves. I know shit is about to get ugly.
I get off, no one is there... I get home, turn on TV, and see homedude on the news wanted for murder.

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


Yes I have! Considering I delivery pizza to people. :<

The latests obnoxious customer I had gave me $40 dollars to break when their order was $21.00. (I AM NOT A DAMN ATM).
Anyway to clarify deliver only carry less than $20. I gave the customer all my bank and told him what change was left. (it was $2.00 and change).

He didn't say anything, but took all the money I gave him.

10 minutes later, I get a call at the shop asking to bring the $2.00 and change back to that customer. (It wasn't a tip) XC

I WASTED GAS BY GOING BACK TO GIVE THEM TWO DOLLARS AND CHANGE. (They were far away).


To add insult to injury one of other members on the house insulted my looks..... assholes. I'm taking my time on their delivery next time.

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.


Um, no. Don't some people have common sense? Of course you won't be able to get a refund for this item because 1) you don't have a recepit (most places do this) 2) you had this blanket for 10 months. That is over 90 days. WTH

I wish we were allowed to smack stupid people like that.

i had experience at an electrical shop repairing electric motors and stuff.. funny thing about shops is you always have customers who seem to know more than you then bitch about the price of service.

dude, i'm handling dangerous equipment, (acetylene torch in hand) are you sure you should be talking to me while repairing YOUR stuff? If you have problems talk to my boss.

guy goes to the boss and gets chewed out.. If you think you can fix it why the hell did you bring it to here in the first place?! don't want to pay? fine! GTFO and take your damn motor with you!

Nope. I worked behind a till before and while I met some really weird folk, nobody threw a tantrum. Some were actually very understanding as I was a noob and once or twice needed to call someone else in to show me how to do something on the till.

As a customer the only thing I can think of that made me go "wat" was when I was on a bus to the airport and this girl about my age ran up to the bus just after it left but it'd stopped. She was like "PLEASE PLEASE let me on! I can't miss my flight!!" And the bus driver ended up getting in an argument with her and tbh it would have been quicker just to let her on. He was also like "fucking Africans" cause she was black? lol?

I worked in a photography studio that took pictures for all the local schools, and dealing with all those moms was a pain in the ass.

Most of them were too stupid to find their way to the studio. I was constantly giving directions over the phone, and they'd be taking wrong turns all over the place and blaming me for it. If you're too retarded to read street signs it's your problem

A lot of them were really rude too, showing up an hour late for their appointments and then getting pissed off when a photographer didn't take them immediately, or just not showing up without calling and canceling and cursing me out when I called to confirm if they were coming or not. The best ones were when they showed up without money to pay for the pictures, and I'd have to deal with all the begging and pleading and saying they'll bring it later and shit.

I encountered a few creeps too. One kid came in to take his senior pictures, and after he left, he called and asked for me, and kept insisting I go on a date with him. Seriously just leave me alone.

So glad I'm done with that job.

I work at subway. The thing I hate the most is:

1. When customers complain about standing in line forever. When I ask them what they would like, they dont know what they fucking want.

2. They tell you how to do your damn job.

3. The motto: "Customers are always right." Bitch, please. You don't work here, fuck off.

4. When People CAN NOT FUCKING CONTROL THEIR KIDS....how the fuck am i supposed to concentrate when kids keep screaming??

5. Snobby ass customers that get pissy with you because you i accidentally dropped a couple more drops of vinegar on their sub.

6. People who constantly ask me what i like; I hate eating at subway. In fact, I eat at home because i hate fast food restaurants.

7. Cheerleaders that think they're loosing weight. Example: I want a six inch turkey sub on italian herbs and cheese. American cheese, extra pickles and mayo. Yeah, i totally lost five pounds off subway....

8. People who constantly beg for 10% percent off.

9, When I have to read peoples minds.....fucking irratating.

10. Cleaning up after these fucking assholes. How the FUCK do you miss your mouth, you filthy fucking pigs???? Are you serious??? There is no reason why you left your huge and nasty crumbs behind.

Working at my job has made me hate society even more.....

oh my god...i'm sorry, but that is hilarious......the whole directions part. But everything else, i totally give you my sympathy...people are asshole. You should have photo shopped their pictures and deformed their faces...and played voodoo with them later.
