11 Awesome Stories About Great Managers Who Have Your Back

| Right | July 22, 2021

Dear readers,

If there’s one thing we’ve learned from reading over eighty-thousand of your stories (so far!) is that a manager that has your back makes all the difference! If the bad customer knows all they have to do is make that infamous request “I’d like to speak with the manager” to get their own way, then that’s what they’ll always do. Therefore, we’ve rounded up eleven stories from our archives about managers that stood their ground against bad customers or stepped in to rescue their staff when the going got tough.

11 Sweltering Stories About Heatwaves… Again!

| Right | July 20, 2021

Dear readers,

Last August, we brought you a roundup about heatwaves. Where I live, we’re currently enjoying some (relative) relief in the upper nineties (Fahrenheit) after a couple of solid weeks above 105! And unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve heard about the truly obscene heat the Pacific Northwest just went through. I saw pictures of people’s homes literally melting.

SO! It’s time for another heatwave roundup! Here are 11 stories from our archives about people who lost their heads in the heat!

 

Putting The Parent Into Park For A Minute – Some people should probably not be parents.

Customer Service Is Collapsing – No matter how hot it is, some customers can be so cold.

11 Maddening Stories About Massages!

| Right | July 19, 2021

Dear readers,

We’re back at it again with another weird “holiday”. This week, it’s Everybody Deserves A Massage Week! No, we’re not making that up; in fact, this week was established by the Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals, the largest massage therapy membership organization in the USA, twenty-six years ago!

A massage is usually a soothing experience that leaves you feeling loose and relaxed and pampered. But we actually take issue with the name of this holiday; anyone who’s worked with any kind of customer knows that everyone certainly does not deserve a massage. To prove our point, here are 11 stories from our archives about massages that were way more stressful than anyone expected!

 

A Touch Too Much Inappropriate Behavior – I’d stick a picture of her on the wall of shame. Gross.

We’ll Stretch Your Muscles And Offend You At The Same Time – Hits from the comments: “Send him to a misogynistic masochistic massagenist; that should fix him right up.”

Not Even Going To Try To Massage The Truth – This kind of person rubs me the wrong way.
