More Bad Customers Than You Can Fit Through A Cable

, , , , | Right | June 11, 2020

It’s 2003. Many of our customers are difficult, irrational, and bizarre. I’m still fairly new and learning but I’m already burnt out dealing with the crazies.

I am instantly happy to have a customer ask for something when I know the exact item they need and where to find it.

Me: “Coaxial cable? Sure! It’s right down th—”

Customer: *Angry, yelling* “I DON’T CARE WHAT IT’S CALLED! JUST TELL ME WHERE IT IS!”

I walked off without another word. You just can’t win when you work retail.
