Dear readers,

Many of you will sadly know – either from reading this site or from personal experience – that some customers enjoy the power dynamic in the customer/employee relationship. The very phrase “the customer is always right” helps to reinforce that entitled view that the customer is worth more than the employee.

Sadly, we’ve found a bunch of customers who take this even further, who don’t even view customer service staff as people. Prepare yourselves for today’s roundup of ten stories about customers who don’t think employees should be treated like human beings…

 

Why We Can Always Use A Hug – Maybe if you tell them you can’t serve them if you’re frozen?

Off The Clock Customer Block – It’s cute that this customer thinks they fall under “normal people.”

Sometimes On The John But Always On The Job – Well, there’s no need to be pissy about it.

How Much Is That Human In The Window – But that is called slavery, my dear children, and is in fact frowned upon in most societies.
