Customer service can be a nightmare.
Well, at least my job experiences kind of were. I worked in grocery stores and restaurants for a long time and, if you’ve had similar gigs, you know that the general public can be a real handful.
And they can get on your nerves in a major way.
Take a look at these things that customer service workers really don’t like and be sure not to do any of them next time you go into a store, okay?
1. Just go ahead and put that anywhere.
This is a big NO-NO.
2. Ummm, what about me?
People really blow my mind sometimes.
This morning, the young barista woman told me that a customer came in with a mask, but not wearing it. When she asked the customer to put on her mask please, the woman said: "Why? There's no-one in here."

3. Uh oh, now you have to think.
And nobody wants that!
4. Let’s not even go there, okay?
Math is not my strong suit.
Me: opens drawer
Customer: oh wait I have a penny
First of all, I don't know how to count

5. YOU. You’re why I’m here.
Any other questions?
I hate when customers say “Why do they have you working on Holidays?” because you’re in here tf

6. I’m not sure how this helps me.
People, you’re really blowing it.
me: your total is $5.30
customer: here’s $6
customer: oh wait here’s 70 cents too

7. Never heard that one before.
I guess you just have to fake the big laugh.
Me: “Can I get you guys anything else?”
Customer: “Yeah a million bucks!!”

8. No, I’m just in here hanging out.
Is that weird to spend time in stores I don’t work in?
Customer: hey do you work here?
Me: no, i just come in here to fold clothes because its good for my health

9. I don’t think that belongs there.
This drives workers insane.
10. Also, never, ever do this to a retail worker.
If you do, you’ll be cursed for life.
11. Out of my way!
Move it, move it!
12. Please don’t do that.
How rude can you get?
How about you?
Have you ever had any interesting experiences with customers?
We want the good, the bad, and the ugly!
