A Customer To Send You Up In (Broken) Arms

| Berlin, Germany | Technology, Theme Of The Month, Top

(I have a broken hand, and have my arm in a plaster.)

Me: “Hello this is [name] from IT support. What can I do for you?”

Customer: “Hello, I have a problem.”

Me: “Okay, what is your concern?”

Customer: “As I said, I have a problem.”

Me: “Okay, I should be more specific. What is your problem about?”

Customer: “My computer doesn’t work as it should.”

Me: “What is it your computer is supposed to do? I mean what program do you want to start, or what you want to do with your computer?”

Customer: “Are you a moron? I told you my computer doesn’t work. I want you to fix it right now!”

Me: “I need more inf—”

Customer: “You’re just being stupid and lazy! You’re a bunch of f****** morons! I will get your a** fired, and I will get it done today!”

Me: “Please calm down and—”

Customer: “Don’t tell me what I have to do! I want to talk to your manager!”

(My manager sits in the same office and has heard everything.)

Manager: “Give her to me.”

(She takes the call and leaves the room. Some moments pass as my manager talks to her. She comes back crying. I get the customer back on my phone; I’m really mad, as my manager is a friendly person.)

Customer: “WILL YOU NOW HELP ME, MORON? I NEED MY COMPUTER TOD—”

Me: “Shut up.”

Customer: “What!”

Me: “I’ll give it a last try. If you yell at me, I’ll quit the call, and you will have to fix your computer by yourself, understand?”

Customer: “Erm… well yes, but—”

Me: “No ‘buts’. So, what program do you want to use?”

(From this point on, it’s easy. I get the information I need to take her case, and give it to a team of specialists. After the call my coworker gets my attention.)

Coworker: “What the h*** did you just do?”

Me:*looking down* “Oh, yeah. I broke my plaster.”

Coworker: “You just yelled at a customer, defended our manager, and risked your job, and the only thing you care for is your plaster?”

Me: “I thought it was a really nice plaster.”

(This makes my manager smile again, and all my other coworkers laugh. I still work for the company, but now all the angry and rude customers are sent directly to me.)

Why Nurses Need Hazard Pay

| IN, USA | Bad Behavior, Health & Body

(I’m a senior nurse. A patient has been caught leaving her room to go to her car and smoke. After repeated warnings on numerous occasions, her doctor finally draws the line.)

Doctor: “If she’s well enough to go and smoke, I think she’s well enough to be discharged.”

(The patient is enraged at this, and starts yelling.)

Patient: “I need my cigarettes! You’re discriminating against me!”

(She finally leaves. I get called by another nurse to her former room several minutes later.)

Nurse: “You have to see this.”

(The patient’s room is completely smeared with feces; on the bed, in the bathroom sink, all over the walls. There’s even a pile just inside the door that we almost step on.)

Me: “What kind of person does something like this?! It’s not human!”

Nurse: “If you’re that upset about not getting your nicotine, something is wrong with you!”

(I am chatting online with a potential customer.)

Customer: “Hey, I really like this necklace. Can I pay by Paypal?”

Me: “Absolutely, if you follow the instructions on check out, you can pay and leave your shipping address there. I’ll get it shipped in the morning.”

Customer: “Do I have to leave an address? Can’t you just email it to me?”

Me: “Email you for your address?”

Customer: “No, email me the necklace. I don’t want to give you my address.”

Me: “You want me to email you the necklace?”

Customer: “Never mind, cancel it. You’re too much work!”
