Direction Deflection

, , , , | Right | June 21, 2017

(This takes place over the phone:)

Customer: “Hi, can you tell me which side of the street your store is on?”

Me: “Absolutely, we’re on the west side.”

Customer: “Is that on the left or the right?”

Me: “That depends on which direction you’re coming from. Are you coming from the North end or the South end?”

Customer: “I don’t know!”

Me: “Well, will you come through [major Southern intersection] or [major Northern intersection]?”

Customer: “How the h*** am I supposed to know? Look, is it on the left or the right? What is so hard about this?”

Me: “If it helps, we’re in the same plaza as [Chain Restaurant], and across the street from [Chain Store].”

Customer: “No, that does NOT help! I’m new to the area!”

Me: “Do you have a GPS? I could give you the address to plug in.”

Customer: “I don’t need a GPS! I have a great sense of direction!”

*Phone rings*.

Me: “[store], [my name] speaking.”

Customer: “Sorry, I wanted [competitor].” *Hangs up*

About a minute later. *Phone rings*

Me: “[store], [my name] speaking.”

Customer: “Aargh, I wanted [competitor]!” *Hangs up*

Less than a minute later *Phone rings*

Me: Sigh “[store], [my name] speaking.”

Customer: “[expletive deleted], why can’t I get [competitor]?”

Me: “Well, if you keep calling the same number, you’re going to keep getting the same store.”

Customer: “But this is the number I was given!” *Hangs up*

Seconds later *Phone rings*

Me: “[store] -”

Customer: *Cuts me off* “[expletive deleted] if you say you’re [store] again, I’m going to come down there and kill you.”

Me: “…yeah, I still work for [store], and I should tell you that as soon as we are done here, I will be forwarding your phone number to the police. Have a nice day.”

*Hangs up*

I called the police immediately after. It turns out he has a long history of making threats, and was currently out on bail for a similar charge. I’m guessing it was revoked.

Punched Out And Ready For A Punch Up

, , , , , | Right | June 11, 2017

(I am working as a cashier supervisor at a large store. I’ve just clocked out since my coworker has taken over to do the closing shift. A cashier stops me as I’m about to leave the store, not in any uniform and clearly dressed in my winter outdoor clothing.)

Cashier: “Hey [My Name], [Coworker] is busy. Can you override this markdown on your way out?”

Me: “No problem.”

Customer: “I’d suggest you get here a little faster next time.”

Me: “I’d suggest you don’t take that tone with me. I barely get paid enough to give a f*** about you when I am on the clock. I certainly don’t care when I’m punched out.”

(The cashier high-fived me and I smirked and walked out the door.)
