I am going to rant about one of my biggest pet peeves: customers bothering me while on my break or on my way to the break room.
The other day I was on my lunch break, which was extremely late, and I only get 30 minutes for it. No big right? I run to the mall that our store is attached to, grab some stirfry from this delicious little place and book it back to eat in our break room because the chairs are way more comfy.
Then some ass hat customer recognizes me apparently ( I was wearing a sweater over my uniform shirt ) . And grabs my arm, like what the fuck? I've got a container of food in my hand and a fork obviously I am on my break. He than proceeds to ask me the dumbest question ever. We will him DumbFuck.
DumbFuck: "Where are the bathrooms?" The only reason I acknowledged his presence when I am not getting paid for it is he physically grabbed me. My bitch switch has been flipped.
Me: "Don't touch me, the closest bathroom is in the food court." I yank my arm away and proceed to stomp off where he starts yelling after me and following me towards the 'STAFF ONLY' door.
DumbFuck: "Why don't you have bathrooms? I need to go to the bathroom, and the food court is too far away."
I slam the door in his face. Like I give a shit if you need to drain the main vein or void your bowels. I'm not getting paid to deal with your bull shit. You can obviously see I am on my break yet you are being selfish and interrupting me. I completely ignore him and about 30 minutes later when I come back from my break my supervisor comes over. Lets call her SweetPea because she is super nice but kind of round.
SweetPea: "Hey CosmeticCanuck, I just had some guy come up to me and tell me you were rude and told him off when he asked you a simple question."
And Mr. DumbFuck comes strolling up right behind her with a smug look on his face. I glared him down and looked right at my supervisor.
Me: "Well I was very obviously on my break with a food container in my hand, but not only that he physically grabbed me to get my attention. So I answered his question and told him not to touch me when I was technically another customer in the store because I am not clocked in."
She turns and his face is white, he starts to stammer and say that I am a liar and screaming. Keep in mind this supervisor is one of the nicest ones we have and usually stands behind her fellow coworkers which is fabulous.
SweetPea: "Sir, I'm going to ask you to leave because I believe her, and I will check the camera, if this is the case, please do not come back to my store and if we see you again you will have the police called on you."
He literally runs out of the store.
I'd like to hear everybody's horror stories of having breaktis interruptis by dumbass custys.
