Accurate post is accurate.

Reminds me of the time a lady told me whip doesn’t melt. Or a guy yelled at me for not understanding him/hearing him because he kept talking on the phone

Lame

For those in retail.

I worked in a Lil Caesars and a woman came in and wanted a sausage pizza with no sausage, but got mad when she was given a cheese pizza.

So when I worked at fitting room in Old Navy, a woman told me that a medium top was too small, and that the large top was too large. So she asked me to find her an “x-medium”. Old Navy carries x-small, small, medium, large, x-large, 1x, 2x and 3x. There is no “x-medium”. But she insisted, so I went and found her an “x-medium” (which was just a medium in a different color but the same top, same make, same EVERYTHING) and she goes very happily, “THIS! THIS FITS ME PERFECTLY! THANK YOU SO MUCH! See, you can do anything you can set your mind to!”

I’m a waitress at a big fancy resort, and once a woman asked me for a diet water and when I told her there was no such thing she demanded to see my manager (who then also promptly told her there was no such thing and brought her regular water).Another occasion of stupidity occurred when a woman had been brought a steak cooked too much for her liking. I offered to take it back and bring her out a new one, cooked a little less, and she said “NO this one’s fine I just want you to cook THIS one a little less.” I then had to get the chef and have him explain why you can’t UNCOOK a steak.

When I was working at dunkin donuts there was this woman in the drive-thru who asked for a lightly toasted croissant and then started complaining that the croissant was warm. And wanted her money back, so she gave me the croissant back and I gave her the money and then she tells me “now i want my new croissant” she wanted a new one for free and as she was screaming at me this guy in a biker gang covered in tattoos leans over the counter in the store and yells “ma’am let me just tell you what we’re all thinking. fuck off, you stupid ****.” I couldn’t stop laughing and she drove away in anger.

Most of the people like in the stories above know that they’re being totally irrational, but also know that if they complain enough they’ll most likely get something free or discounted. So really most of the the nonsensical fucks are actually just cheap fucks with no shame or respect for people.

That last bit of commentary though.

Well then…

Wait a minute, wait a minute, hold on here. This cartoon just fucked up its own message. He wasn’t fired because he was right or the customer was wrong; he was fired because he was an asshole.
When you’re working retail or any kind of service job, there are times where the customer is wrong, but being sarcastic and a jerk like the guy in the cartoon is unacceptable and bad customer service. Believe me, I know: I’ve spent the past 13 months at ShopRite telling people that we can’t take back the item they’re trying to return if they don’t have the receipt with them to prove that they even bought it from us in the first place. He may have been right, but he could’ve told the customer in a nicer way that ice floats and cannot sink to the bottom like she wants, so when the manager came up per the customer’s request, the story would’ve been “This woman doesn’t understand that ice does not sink” and not “Your employee was rude to me when all I did was ask a simple question.” And I know there’s still gonna be those aforementioned “nonsensical fucks” and “cheap fucks” out there who will get pissed even if you do everything right, but that doesn’t excuse bad behavior on your part. All you can do is be polite, be calm, be helpful, and be understanding. The customer can be wrong every now and then, but it’s customer service’s job to correct them in a calm and composed way, and to be courteous and helpful in finding an alternate solution to the problem. Bad customers do not excuse bad employees.

Decided to stop here on the way back from picking up my contact lenses and visit some members of my family who sadly left too soon. It’ll be twenty years to the day next month that my Grandpop left us, and twelve years this December since my Aunt Joanne left. I still miss you both so much, and I hope to be back here soon. ❤️

Excuse me but what is this doing in the potato tag
that does not look like a fucking potato to me

why were you in the potato tag



Let’s not forget it’s also tagged as “Cheetos,” “French,” “cake,” “McDonald’s,” “fries,” “chocolate,” “hamburger,” “crisps,” “tacos/taco,” and “pancakes,” none of which have ANYTHING to do with pizza. -____-

I am still in disbelief that it’s been ten years since I first discovered “American Idiot”. I remember picking it up on a whim because one of my middle school classmates had been going on and on about “I’m so excited for the new Green Day album” (or maybe he was saying “The new Green Day album sucks” and I picked it up to see if it truly WAS terrible; I’d believe either one); becoming obsessed with the record; listening to it on the bus up to NYC to see “Wicked” on Broadway; on the bus for my 8th grade trip to Williamsburg; just listening to it over and over and over; learning the lyrics; being blown away by its massive sound; imitating Billie Joe while watching the “Boulevard…” music video with a fake guitar I made out of cardboard, masking tape, Sharpie, pastels, and a plastic hockey stick; aspiring to be just like him when I grow up; and most importantly, opening me up to a whole brand-new world of different music and ideas and beliefs. That was a major transformative year in my life, and I will be forever grateful to Billie Joe, Mike, Tré, Rob Cavallo, Chris Dugan, Doug McKean, Jason Freese, Kathleen Hanna, Reto Peter, Dr. Vibb, Stimie, Jimmy Hoyson, Joe Brown, Dim-e, Chris Bilheimer, Chris Lord-Alge, and Ted Jensen, all of whom had a hand in expertly crafting the one record that, as cliché as it sounds, completely changed my life. Happy 10th birthday, “American Idiot.” All I can say is thank you. Thank you for everything. #greenday #americanidiot @bj_unoxx @mike_dosxx @treleparc
