    Breast To Be Aware Around Bigots

    , | Melbourne, VIC, Australia | Bad Behavior, Bigotry, Food & Drink, Theme Of The Month, Top

    (I’m a male shift manager at a popular drive-thru fast food chain. I’m 19 and the only manager on duty. I am doing my rounds when I overhear an argument.)

    Customer: “You f***ing b****! You obviously don’t know what the f*** you’re doing! Ten f***ing breast pieces!”

    (At this point the 15-year-old server runs out of the serving window area in tears and begs me for help. I send her on a break and approach the customer warily.)

    Me: “Sir, what seems to be the issue?”

    Customer: “Who the f*** are you?”

    Me: “I’m the manager on duty, sir. Is there-”

    Customer: “You? The f***ing manager? You’re f***ing 12!”

    Me: “Sir, I’m 19 and I’m—”

    Customer: “That b**** wouldn’t give me ten breast pieces of chicken in my ten piece box!”

    Me: “Unfortunately, she was correct and we are unable to do that. Only one in every nine pieces of chicken is a breast piece, and in order to fill your request we would have to cook an extra 81 pieces, which would severely affect our profit margin. Could I suggest the fillet—”

    Customer: “You’re a f***ing f** aren’t you? You’re one of those queers!”

    Me: “Sir, I’m going to have to ask that—”

    Customer: “F***ing f** boy!”

    (The customer then descends into a tirade of graphic descriptions of the sexual acts he would expect me to perform as a homosexual. I’m finding it difficult to maintain composure at this point.)

    Me: “Sir, if you do not stop immediately I’m going to have to call the police.”

    Customer: “You wanna fight me, f** boy? I’ll f***ing kill you.”

    (The customer gets out of his car and lunges at the window. I slam it shut and lock it.)

    Customer: “Come out here and fight me, you queer!”

    Me: “Sir, I cannot help you any more. Please leave my drive-thru immediately or I will call the police.”

    Customer: “You can’t make me! Give me my f***ing chicken!”

    (I pull out my phone and dial the police. As I’m explaining the situation, the customer has reverted to his tirade of sexual comments aimed at me.)

    Me: “The police are on their way. You can either leave the store now or be removed.”

    Customer: “You little f**! I’ll be back f** boy, just you f***ing wait!”

    (The customer roars off. I’m shaking and my voicing is cracking at this point, having maintained composure for so long, but I stay at the serving window so I can explain the delay to the next few customers, and apologise to the next car, who witnessed the entire episode.)

    Me: “Hi, welcome to [fast food restaurant], I’m so sorry about the delay there, I was un—”

    Customer #2: “He’s right! You are a f***** aren’t you!”

    (Worst shift I ever had.)

    Stuffed Candy Meets Sweet Justice

    | Kearney, NE, USA | At The Checkout, Bad Behavior

    (I’m checking out a couple with a lot of groceries and other items. The wife is unloading the cart on to the belt while the husband has come down to the end of the belt and starts chatting with me.)

    Me: “Oh, the weather’s been lovely for—”

    (I stop mid-sentence when I notice the wife stuffing assorted items into the candy, trying to hide them.)

    Me: “Ma’am, you can give those items to me and I’ll take care of them.”

    (She gives me a blank stare.)

    Me: “The items you don’t want? It’s no trouble; I’ll just take them.”

    Wife: *holds her hands up and shrugs* “What are you talking about?”

    Husband: “Oh, just take the items out of the candy and hand them to her.”

    (The wife retrieves the items and hands them to me, mumbling.)

    Wife: “You weren’t supposed to be watching…”

    (She goes back to unloading the cart but is visibly pouting. The husband just gives his wife a puzzled look and apologizes to me. Thankfully she didn’t have any other unwanted merchandise!)

    Flying Off The Handle Will Get You Handled

    | USA | Awesome Customers, Bad Behavior, Tourists/Travel

    (I’m at an airport, and the flight I’m on has been oversold. The representative calls over the PA system for volunteers willing to be bumped to another flight, in exchange for a free ticket. I am talking with the representative about changing my flight when a man storms up and begins berating the lone employee at the counter.)

    Employee: “I’ve found another flight on [airline] departing in 15 minutes which would get you to your final destination half an hour later than your originally scheduled arrival. Is that okay?”

    Customer: “This is outrageous. My family needs to travel together. I demand that you give my son a boarding pass at once! Stop helping other people!”

    Employee: “Sir, as I have already explained to you, your son bought a standby ticket, while you and your wife bought normal tickets. Your son will not be able to board this plane unless there are empty seats, and we are currently seeking 7 passengers willing to alter their travel plans. Please sit down and I will call you over if that becomes possible.”

    Customer: “No! I was talking to you first; you need to deal with me now!”

    Employee: “Sir, I cannot help you if there are no empty seats, and there currently aren’t, but there may be shortly if you will just wait.”

    Customer: “I shouldn’t have to wait!”

    (I decide to speak up.)

    Me: “Excuse me, but you’re making your own problem worse. I’m one of the 7 people who might be willing to get off this flight, for which I have a valid ticket, but only if the airline can reroute me. This man was trying to do so, but the flight he was going to put me on is leaving in less than 15 minutes. If he can’t get me on that flight, I’m not getting off this one. There is only one employee here; if he is busy with you yelling at him, he can’t process people being rerouted, and your son won’t be allowed on this plane. If you want your family to travel together, get out of the way and let this man do his job.”

    (The customer walks off in a huff and goes back to sitting with his family, muttering all the while. Meanwhile, the employee speaks to me.)

    Employee: “Technically, sir, I have to instruct you to let the airline employees deal with the other passengers.” *pauses* “That said, I’ve booked you an exit row window seat for all of your remaining flights at no additional charge, and please accept these vouchers for meals valid today at any of the airports on your itinerary, in addition to the credit for a round trip ticket we had already mentioned. Here is your new boarding pass, and your new flight departs from [gate] at [time].”

    Extremely Opinion-hated

    | Springfield, MO, USA | Awesome Customers, Bad Behavior, Bigotry, Theme Of The Month

    (I am on WIC (Woman, Infants and Children) support. My husband and I are having some hard times due to the fact it has been extremely difficult for me to find work. WIC covers some of the more expensive items on our food list. I’m in the store with my two-year-old daughter. There is also this older couple who are the rudest couple I have ever encountered. They are going around having something to say, loudly, about everyone they walk by. The older couple walks past a girl with maroon coloring in her hair.)

    Rude Wife: “Oh god, what a rebellious b****! I bet her parents are real proud.”

    (Next they come up on a young man in a hoodie, with his earphones from his iPod in. He has in his cart things to make a good dinner, but they are unimpressed.)

    Rude Husband:, “Well that boy is just an immature thug with his loud music in his ears.”

    (This whole time, I am being silent as they may just be having a bad day, until they get behind me in the bread aisle.)

    Rude Husband: *to me* “Get out of the way!”

    Rude Wife: “Yes, I really wish she would just pick out her welfare bread and get gone!”

    (Thankfully, at this point another older lady speaks up.)

    Older Lady: “Honey, she has WIC; it’s very different from welfare. Also, did you think that maybe this young woman has that because she is down on her luck and needs it?”

    Me: *to the older lady* “Thank you!”

    Never Get A Law Student Wind-ed Up

    | Scotland, UK | Bad Behavior, Theme Of The Month

    (I work as a customer service agent part time whilst obtaining my law degree. It has been a long day of shouting customers.)

    Me: “So, sir, I really can’t discuss this with you as it’s all down to our claims team.”

    Caller: “But you know it’s with them; you must be able to tell me what I’m getting.”

    Me: “Sir, you’re asking me to comment on a legal issue. I’m not trained in this department, so all I can say is that someone will be in touch within the next two days.”

    Caller: “I’m not satisfied with that answer. You’re going to tell me what’s happening right now, or you’ll be losing a customer, and if I have my way, your job.”

    (This is followed by a 3 minute rant, heavy on the swears. Eventually, I get tired of it and manage to get a word in.)

    Me: “Sir, the trolley was blown into your car?”

    Caller: “Yes, but I, I’m not satisfi—”

    Me: “As in by the wind?”

    Caller: “Yes, bu—”

    Me: “In that case, what has happened is classed as an Act of God. The store has made the best effort to make sure that trolleys aren’t left around the car park. However, if one person does leave the trolley and then that trolley is blown into a car, we can’t be deemed responsible, because 1) we took the utmost care to make sure that the carts were in the trolley bays, and 2) we don’t control the wind. Frankly, you wouldn’t be entitled to anything, but [brand] does not like bad advertising, so you’ll get something but you are going to have to wait for that till Thursday. Are you satisfied with the answer now, sir?”

    Caller: “…Yes.”

    (He then ends the call. Only time I’ve been glad for my degree choice.)
