It's 2 PM on this day, and I am starving. I am just coming back from the fast food joint down the street and I am walking towards the break room with my food in hand.
I'm hoping to enjoy a quiet, peaceful lunch to re-energize myself so I can continue dealing with the endless waves of snarky customers that my workplace is notorious for attracting.
As I am getting to the door, this blonde woman, around her 50s, begins to follow me (I can feel her following me) and she begins to do that "pssst!" noise that is so fucking annoying. She continues about three times or so but I ignore her, since, you know, I am not a fucking dog or anything. After she realizes that I am not going to react to her summons, the conversation goes a little something like this:
Woman: Ex-CUUUUUUUUUUUSE ME!!!
Me: Oh sorry ma'am, I am on break right now. But let me get one of the other employees to help you out.
At this point I begin to reach for my walkie talkie to call someome to the aisle for help, but she isn't having any of it.
Woman: WHAAAAAAAAAAT?! I will NOT be treated like this! I am a valued customer and I demand to be treated as such! You will provide your service to me RIGHT NOW and that is THAT! No questions asked!
Woman: I don't give a shit! I don't care if you're starving! The customer always comes first!
At this point, I didn't even retaliate. I just turned around and ignored her as I walked into the break room with my key and shut the door behind me. She began to angrily pound on it for a few seconds until she finally stopped, presumably because a co-worker came to the rescue.
I later found out that she complained to the manager, and of course the manager simply brown-nosed her and told her that I would be "dealt with" as an employee should "never refuse service to a customer" even if they are on break.
This supposedly applies even if I call an employee over the walkie for help.
Honestly, I am just venting. I am getting sick and fucking tired of this company and the management. Especially the customers though.
