    Caller: “Don’t talk to me in that tone of voice! Now explain it to me like a civil human being, and tell me how to get to your f***ing store!”

    Me: “…I’m sorry, ma’am. If you just head south–”

    Caller: “What in God’s name is wrong with you? All I want to do is get to your f***ing store so I can get some f***ing music! Is that so d*** much to ask for?

I’ll find my way there myself! *hangs up*
