Have you ever had to work a job where you had to deal with the general public day in and day out?
If you haven’t, I’ll let you in on a little secret…it kind of sucks!
People complain, they harass you, they think you owe them something. It can be a real sh*tshow. And don’t even get me started on those wild “Karens.” They’re real and they’re usually out for blood.
Do you want to take a look at some posts about the things that customer service workers really don’t like?
I thought you’d say YES! Let’s check them out.
1. Do you really love your job?
You don’t have to lie to us. I think we can tell you don’t.
11. Oh, no, please don’t leave!
You know you’ve heard this one before. Bet on it!
No retail worker has ever been intimidated by the phrase “you just lost a customer.” Like oh nooo we’re only gonna make $345,629 instead of $345,671. I’m sorry you feel that way about our store, would you like your apology letter in the mail, or hand delivered?

3. I’ve heard that one before…
And I’m gonna keep hearing it over and over.
4. I ain’t wearing no mask!
These people are really delightful.
5. I made it!
Well, isn’t that incredibly rude?
this customer walked in 10 SECONDS before we CLOSED and she had the audacity to yell “yay i made it” bitch you made what? made me mad?

6. What do you think?
Well, the doors are locked…so…
“Are you closed??????”
no ma’am, we actually just decided to lock the front and start mopping for fun

7. I know it’s not my fault…
Enough with the abuse!
Why do customers give ya actual verbal abuse for ten mins straight then go ‘I know it’s not you, it’s not your fault’. Yeh I know it’s not

Now we want to hear from you… even though these employees don’t.
Have you ever had any bad experiences when you were working in customer service? Ever been a horrible customer and later regretted it?
