The Customer Is Always ANNOYING
Working in retail may not seem too hard, but given the amount of customer service involved, it can easily be one of the most frustrating jobs on the planet.
Anyone who has ever worked in a job where they have to cater to and work directly with (or for) a customer knows that, even if something is completely out of their hands, the customer is always right, and they’ll expect the worker to answer for any problems that might arise.
What’s your worst experience on the job? Did you ever work at a store where the customers got out of hand, or perhaps you were witness to the event? Redditors who work in retail were asked to share their wildest stories from the job, and between misunderstandings, difficult customers, or straight-up shoplifters, you’ll be thankful that your retail days are done!
Customers from heck…
I worked at *******. A woman came in to return a bag of soil because “the bag was dirty”.
She was dead serious. (imfinethough)
The Freshest Fries
I worked at a fast food place for a while and had this one regular who ALWAYS had something to complain about.
The worst was that no matter what, our fries were NEVER fresh.
Whenever we saw her we’d drop fresh fries just so she wouldn’t complain about them. She’d order, and we’d give her fries directly from the fryer and she’d tell us they weren’t fresh…What the f**k? My manager got them from her, walked to the back, and brought her the exact same container and apologized…The lady said “these are perfect” and went about her day (Mattxy8)
