Yeah...our science department is lacking a bit...


That's a scary thought. The school system I came from was cheap enough to use coaches as teachers but they didn't dare do that for the sciences. If that wasn't even a coach but an actual specialized teacher I might just have hemorrhaging in my brain from the stupid.

I've seen some incredible spelling errors.

Bight = Bite
80HD = ADHD
Colon = Cologne
Soared = Sword
Crane = Crayon


This life. . . . is not worth living with such Dumass people sometimes. . . .

We were at the front desk of the hotel and a really rude guest who was in his 20s came in. Mind you, the front desk is IN the lobby. The bus stop is literally 30 feet away from where I was standing. This guy obviously works out since he looks pretty fit. He also looks smart. But my impression of him quickly changes.

Guest: "Do you know the bus routes around here?"

Me: "I'm not from this area so I don't know. But the bus stop is right next to the front of the hotel lobby and there are copies of the schedule in a box next to the bench. There is also bus information near the brochures in the lobby."

Guest: "Well, you work here so you're supposed to know all this stuff."

Me: "I'm sorry, sir, but I really do not know. I'm a part-timer as well as a stranger to this area, you see. The information is available in the lobby and in front of the lobby, though."

Guest: "Well, if you don't know, you're going to have to look it up for me. I'm the guest."

Me: "Well, alright, what do you want to know? I'll go get a copy of the information for you."

Guest: "No. You're going to stay right there and look for it online and tell me."

Me: "I've got to tell you that the computers here are somewhat old and slow. It really would be easier to just grab the paper copies."

Guest: "No. You're going to learn the bus route by looking it up and telling me. I'm not going to walk all the way over there."

Me: "Sir, that's a bit unreasonable. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'll be glad to go out and fetch a copy for you."

Guest: "That's not necessary. You need to learn. I was a concierge once so I know what the job requires. You're the worst concierge I've ever encountered."

Me: "Well, if you say so." *I start looking for the information online but the computers literally take a minute to load each page.*
Me: "I do apologize for the wait. The computers are a bit slow."

Guest: "You're way too slow. You're incompetent and don't deserve to work here. You have no idea how to do anything."

Me: "Sir, I told you several times that I did not know and I'm trying my best to do as you ask. I've already explained everything to you."

Guest: "Don't talk back to me. Find me the bus information. And while you're at it, give me the number to your corporate HQ. I'm going to file a complaint about your lousy service."

Me: "Here's the bus information and I've written down the corporate number for you in the back. Have a nice trip."

Guest: "You think you're so funny, huh. Being so calm and composed. Wait til I get you fired. We'll see how funny you are then." *At this point, he is starting to get really loud and really aggressive.*

Me: "Sir, if you keep this up, I'm going to have to ask you to leave. I have other duties to attend to and there are other guests here in the lobby. You've been very disruptive."

Guest: "You can't tell me to leave. I'm paying for my room here. "

Me: "First of all, you are being extremely unreasonable. I've already done what I can for you. Secondly, you are being aggressive and I have a right to call the cops if you start acting aggressively toward me or other guests. Thirdly, I am here because I work directly with the owner of the hotel. I am telling you right now that I can and will make you leave if you keep this up."

Guest: "I'm going to get you fired for sure. Nobody talks that way to a paying customer." *Walks out the door.*

Me: "Have a nice day!"



This is why I despise customer service jobs.

That really sucks so bad.

I almost had the same experience as you.
But you handled it way cooler by yourself.

In my case, I handled it like how they did it on the first season of Log Horizon (people of the land vs adventurers). I had to call someone to serve as a neutral party. Because once the customer sees you as a target, it's hard to persuade them and be reasonable.

It's just not really worth arguing with some people. It's way easier to just tell them to go away. I can usually handle it pretty well on the outside, but I am seething on the inside.

My sister recently turned eighteen, and since then, every other thing she says is, "I'm eighteen, I can do what I want!" regardless of whatever advice is offered.

I've been told that I'm a terrible, awful person because of one little thing that I can't control and that harms absolutely no one. It has no impact on others at all.

A few years ago, I heard this conversation between my mom and my uncle:

Uncle: "Sorry I couldn't come sooner, I was packing for my trip with a friend from work."

Mom: "Oh, that's fine. Where are you going?"

Uncle: "We're going to drive to Alaska and spend a week there before heading back down. It'll be a long drive, so we are stocking up on snacks and things to keep us awake behind the wheel."

Mom: "Woah, that bridge must be huge!"

She was convinced that Alaska was an island because of its placement on maps of the US. She was drunk, so I just try telling myself that she wouldn't have made the mistake sober.

I overheard a conversation from a Native American a while back.

"I wish all the whites never came here so I could just go to the grocery store and grab some milk without having to talk to any of them."

EDIT: This probably isn't the exact thing I heard since my memory isn't so good. It's a rough estimation.

I'll never understand why this happens so frequently.

Other person: "Where did you come from?"
Me: "I've lived around here for a while, actually." OR "I'm from near LA."
Other person: "Oh, I mean what are you?"
Me: "I was born in Taiwan. I'm Taiwanese."
Other person: "That's cool. I love Thai food."


Thai =/= Taiwanese. Pls. Pls.



I suppose it's good that he didn't do it since everyone told him not to. But sometimes I feel like people like that should just be weeded out by their own acts. Nobody who has gone to college should be so lacking in knowledge. Maybe he eventually read about why you shouldn't mix those.
