Not A Morning Person Every Five Minutes

| MI, USA | Right | November 6, 2015

(We get a line of about ten cars at once in the drive-thru. Two cars in, I hear a car at the end of the line laying on their horn.)

Me: *over headset* “Is that one of our customers honking?”

Coworker: *over headset* “Yes, and she’s yelling about something, too.”

(Less than four minutes later, the angry customer is at my window. I have her food ready.)

Me: “Here you go. Sorry about the—”

Customer: “I want to know why the hell it TOOK SO LONG TO GET THAT LINE GONE.” *she yanks the bag so forcefully out of my hand that the bag rips* “NOW YOU’VE MADE ME LATE FOR WORK, YOU F****** IDIOT. WHAT TOOK SO F****** LONG?!”

Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am, we just got busy. I do apologize for your wait—”

Customer: “GIVE ME MY F****** [SODA]!”

Me: “Here’s your [Soda]. Again, I’m sorry about your wait.”

Customer: “F*** YOU ALL!” *speeds away*

Manager: *over headset* “If a five minute wait made her late for work, she obviously didn’t have enough time to go anywhere before her shift. Clearly, somebody peed in her Cheerios this morning.”

Me: *over headset* “I hate people.”

Weeding Out The Irresponsible Users

| Atlanta, GA, USA | Right | November 6, 2015

(I am working the closing shift one evening, with my only other company being my boss, the head pharmacist. A man comes in to pick up a fairly mundane prescription.)

Me: “Before I ring this up, do you have any questions for the pharmacist?”

Customer: “Yeah, will this have any interactions with marijuana?”

Me: *looking to the pharmacist* “Um…”

(My boss comes over to the registers and makes a show of looking through the printed information pamphlet that comes with every prescription.)

Pharmacist: “I don’t believe so…”

Customer: *picking up on our unease* “Oh, don’t worry. I don’t go out on the road or anything when I get high. I just stay home until my trip ends.”

(He then paid his bill and left.)

Me: *to pharmacist* “…Well, at least he’s being responsible about it.”

Boy, What A Problem!

| USA | Right | November 6, 2015

(I’m a vet tech. The first appointment of the day is two ladies in their 30s bring in a young Shih Tzu puppy for its first visit. The owners tell me that this is their first puppy.)

Me: “Wow, what a cute little guy. How long have you had him?”

Owner: “Him? The breeder told us it was a girl.”

(I lift puppy up and all the male parts are there, I then turn him around and show owners. Both owners look shocked!)

Owner: “NO! IT’S A GIRL DOG BECAUSE THAT’S WHAT WE PAID FOR!”

Me: “Ma’am, he has a penis and testicles.”

Owner: “NO! NO, IT’S A GIRL!”

Me: “Ma’am, if you look here there is—”

Owner: “The breeder said it’s just a ambilican hernia and I believe the breeder! Why would he lie?”

Me: “Umm, I don’t know, ma’am. It’s pronounced umbilical hernia, and no, he doesn’t have one. That is his prepuce which sheathes his penis.”

Owner: “What do you know? You’re not a vet! I want to talk to a vet!”

Me: “Sure, no problem.”

(I walked out and informed my vet of the clients’ concerns. I went into the room with the vet and he told them the same thing. The owners actually continued to try to argue with my vet as to whether it was a boy!)

More Than Just A Pet Hate

| USA | Right | November 6, 2015

(The owner brings in a little, quite adorable, mixed breed dog. After talking about everything under the sun about her pet’s healthcare we get to the topic of having her pet spayed, which the owner agrees to.)

Me: “We have to wait a couple more months but this is an estimate for how much the spay is going to cost, so you can go ahead and plan for it.”

Owner: *looks at estimate and her face gets really red and she yells* “It says here you have to put my pet under anesthesia!”

Me: “Well, yes, she is getting spayed. It is a it is a surgical procedure where we have to go into the abdomen and remove the—”

Owner: “You are trying to rip me off! There is no reason my pet should have to be asleep for that!”

Me: “Ma’am, like I said, it is a abdominal surgical procedure—”

Owner: “I DONT UNDERSTAND WHY YOU CAN’T JUST HOLD HER DOWN AND SPAY HER! I WAS AWAKE FOR MY C-SECTION!”

Me: “Well, that is a very different procedure than the one we are discussing. Doing surgery on an animal is different than a human.”

(The owner goes into a rant about how she read on the Internet that vets like to rip people off and that her pet will die if she is put under anesthesia.)

Me: “Ma’am, would you want someone to hold you down, cut into your abdomen, and remove your reproductive organs while you are awake!?”

Owner: “NO, I WOULDN’T, BUT I’M A PAYING CUSTOMER. ISN’T THE CUSTOMER ALWAYS RIGHT?!”

Me: “NO! We are a medical practice, not Macy’s. Your pet is our patient.”

Owner: “You clearly don’t know what you’re doing! I’m going to take my pet to a more competent vet!”

(I then gave her her pet’s records and off she went ranting and raving without even paying her office visit fee.)
