Have you ever seen something incredibly stupid or seen someone behave in a way that was so unbelievably inappropriate you had to ask yourself this person can't be serious right? If so share your experiences here
Over the weekend I had the DIS-pleasure of running into a few morons at my job
So first off, as I do night shifts I don't shop at the mall where my job is located very often, I come to work go home and do any shopping I need to do locally or in the city. As a result, sometimes new shops will open and I wont be aware that they're there at all. Anyway a woman come in looking for directions and this conversation took place.
Customer - Can you tell me how to get to the meteor storehttp://blog.joerenken.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/Jackie-Chan-Brain-Is-Full-Of-Fuck-Wh.png
Me - I'm not sure if there is one of those stores in the center
Customer - *brandishing a bag from meteor* There is one I just came from it!
Me - Sorry I don't shop here very often I didn't know there was one
Customer - Fine! I'll go back the way I came; you're no help at all!
I wonder did she have a sudden moment of clarity the moment she walked out the door and realize how stupid she made herself sound.
The second event wasn't so much stupid as it was unbelievably petty to the point of being stupid.
Our store like countless others that serve food and drink suffers from cheap skates who try to pull one over on us, we have good old chestnuts like - "This coffee that I bought (half an hour ago) is gone cold I want another for free", "That sandwich wasn't nice (it was so bad I had to leave one bite on the plate) I want my money back", "I'll have a pot of tea and a pot of hot water (so I can give my friend my tea bag and he/she can have free tea), or just a plain old can "I'll have a pot of hot water (so I can make my own tea/coffee and drink it at your cafe for free). You might say oh get over it it's only tea, but we're a business if we give out free stuff it cuts into our profits we get charged for the water we use and the seats taken up by freeloaders could be used to sit paying customers not to mention the sneakiness of it just pisses off most people in my line of work. Anyway we don't just out right refuse we let them have their way but on our terms if the want hot water they get hot water in a small cup!
A woman came in and tried to pull the pot of tea pot of hot water scam, I gave her a pot of tea and a cup of hot water. "That's ridiculous" she sputtered "I cant drink tea without water on the side it'll be much to strong". "I'm sorry but unfortunately it's our policy to only give out hot water in cups but if you would like I can make you a fresh pot with the tea bag left out on the side that way you can make it to your taste" I offered politely. That was like waving a red flag at a bull "This is unacceptable" she roared "I demand to see a manager". Our manager was on an hour lunch and had gone out to eat that day, his lunch was about to be ruined because of a spoiled person's temper tantrum. I explained that he was out for another 45 minute and that I could give her a customer service number to call but still she insisted I ring him and bring him back off his lunch, which I did. For fifteen minutes she waited glaring at me while I served other customers I wanted so badly to say to her "You tried to scam a free pot of tea from us and it didn't work out the way you wanted it to, get over it". Eventually she got tired of waiting and slinked off in a huff just before my manager came in with his lunch in a doggy bag, meaning she'd just interrupted his lunch break for nothing.
