One time working at Disney, I informed a woman that the line to meet a character was closed. But I reassured her that she could come back in x amount of time, (usually about 20-30 minutes) and the same character would be out again.
She took this with some grunts and moans, but eventually left with her spawn.
A few minutes later she comes up to me, points her camera at me, and takes my picture. Then just walks away without saying anything.
I guess she wanted to complain about me, using my picture?
Well excuse me for staff wanting a friggin break!
From Reddit: My dad's work told him to bring home some of the excess Girl Scout cookies they had from an event today. I don't even.. But, he's actually going to be giving them out for free to his fellow veterans. Which will be easy because he works for the VA.
At one of my sites, we had an issue with people parking in the fire lane. Eventually, the city got fed up and sent the PD to crack down. One lady got a ticket and immediately came to howl at security because it was just a few minutes! And we needed to fix it.
The best part was that the cop who wrote the ticket was still there, writing more tickets. She walked right past them to get to us. The cop turns around, and writes her another ticket.
When she got back to her car, she howled and demanded we write a letter telling how it was OK for her to park there and how it was only for a few minutes.
Oh, and of course, how she was never coming back.
The real kicker: we had a parking garage where the first hour of parking is free.
May your custies be smart, or actually follow through on the never coming back promise.
I think everyone should be required to work retail/restaurant/service job either during high school or just after. Such experiences would teach everyone exactly what goes on in those stores.
Yes, amazingly, they have more things to do than to listen to you bitch on and on about how the store is not up to YOUR F-ing expectations.
Sometimes I just want to shout at people, "What the Fuck don't you understand? Shut the Fuck up, Choose your shit, pay for your shit and then get the Fuck out! I have things to do!"
