    My goodness, I see these 8 people every time I work. It`s horrible, but then I also see a lot of customers during the day when I work. Retail is an ugly business sometimes.

    Ugh, the Cellphone Sh_theads are my personal favourites. Although, I used to work on the front gates of a zoo, so there were hundreds of seriously angry parents with out of control bratty little kids just dying to take their rage out on you.

    Cellphone Sh*thead, Dinosaur, and I`ve taken game trade ins from MANY a stoner. For god`s sake the game box smells like it was HOLDING his stash!

    T.T.T.`s never exploded on me though, perhaps they all foresaw the verbal bashing they would have gotten.

    How `bout the people who order the nastiest item on the menu, and then act like it`s your fault when it tastes like ass?
    Like, when and in what universe did you decide that cotton-candy flavoured ice cream would be any good? Really?

    All of the customer interaction we have is over the phone, but we STILL have a Captain Linger. He calls during the busiest part of the day and refused to hang up the phone, telling us about the weather or how many lame jokes he has written down on a piece of paper in front of him, just waiting to be said to someone (which becomes one of the few people at my job who answers the phone). Whenever he calls, everyone always knows it`s him because of the sheer amount of eyerolls the phone answerer makes, and the lengthy amount of time they spend on the phone nervously chuckling.

    how about the people who always want a freaking discount. i work at a shrine gift shop and every single person is convinced that since it`s a religious place, there must be no tax. and when we tell them we do have tax, they get all pissy. plus, i get stuff like "well,i go to church here don`t i get a discount?" no, no you don`t. you never will. i hate my job.

    I disagree with the stoner customers. I smoke, which may make me biased, but I never had a problem with them. They never were retarded about stuff. The COKE HEADS I had problems with. They always wanted to fight, or steal poo. Not saying everyone who does coke is like that, but I definitely had the most trouble with people on amphetamines. Stoners don`t faze me in the slightest. All they want to do is chill and eat.

    It sounds like the guy who wrote this has never met a person smoking pot before. Because last time I checked I am not fading in and out of reality. I am just having a good time.

    ugh yeah people like that make working suck. Always getting the people that say `well at the other store it only costs this much blah blah blah" or the "I was here yesterday and it only cost $3 why is it $5 now?" A- we just changed our prices or B your other day was 5 years ago. Also I hate it when people expect you to get their stuff out to them in under a minute when they order 15 different things theres only two people working and there is 20 people in line. Its not going to happen.

    Definately see these people every day as a waitress. If you do to-go food, the people that unpack EVERYTHING in the bag, and even though it`s labeled clear as day, continue to ask you what it is, while the growing line forms beind them. People who don`t tip. The dude who ask if everything else is extra. Wow, I should quit my job.

    Cellphone pooheads and Procrastinators.

    How I loathe them.

    Hell, I don`t mind if someone`s chatting away on their cell after they`re sitting down and eating, etc. But you`ve been in line for 5 minutes and you couldn`t go, "hold on, lemme get my food?!?!"

    You twat.

    Them and procrastinators are the reason I can`t get anything done. I`d love to go take care of the HEAVING MASS of to-go orders but I have to wait for them to place their order.

    And just when I`m about to turn around and do so... "Oh, ma`am, I`m ready!!" DX

    I "entered the working world" at sixteen, and I`m still at the same job four years later. It`s pretty crappy and I have indeed met most of these customers, but I hate - HATE - the customers who assume it`s YOU who does the ordering and whatnot. They can`t find something? Well, it`s my fault because I happen to be within shouting distance of them. Grr.

    But I don`t bother finding another job since I assume it would be the same everywhere.

    I honestly don`t think the cell phones are that bad, as long as they can put it down or (if it`s a headset) tell whoever they`re talking to to hold on for a minute.

    Being the mildly antisocial person I am, I find the soapbox and anchor the most annoying.

    Luckily, I very rarely have to actually deal with anyone at all where I work.

    Boadicea, the point that Tenty was making is that no, you cannot pay with euro`s in england as we do not use them, we use pounds. Although I`m sure you would have known this if you even knew where the uk was on a map.

    tripple nipple -since when does a knowledge of geography automaticly morph into a knowledge of foreign currency. since we americans or so stupid and can only keep so much in our tiny brains youll have to pick one or the other. wheres such and such or what currency do they use. pick one.

    True story - I`m out to dinner with my wife and her obnoxious (but hot) friend. Waiter doesn`t come to take our order for 30 minutes after we sit down. We complain quietly among ourselves about how long the waiter is taking and how busy they are. Waiter finally arrives. Obnoxious (but hot) friend opens her menu for the first time and says "Oh, I haven`t decided what I want yet!"

    This person is the queen of all procrastinators in all facets of her life...didn`t even take her final exams on time in college, and her grandparents died eight times in her eight semesters in college in order to give her extensions for final exams, at least that is what she told her professors. Nice to know that every customer service worker deals with people equally as obnoxious every day and she`s not the worst person to walk the Earth. But, she gets away with it because she is hot.

    "since when does a knowledge of geography automaticly morph into a knowledge of foreign currency."

    Since it is evident that the U.K. is not part of the European Union. So, any knowledge of geography does, in fact, automatically morph into a knowledge of what currency they use.

    Ughh this was my first job. However they didn`t include retards who thought I was somehow flirting with them, when instead I was just being nice to them because I have to be nice to customers. >.> Seriously I`d feel bad about rejecting them, but come on I`m being nice because I`m at work, not because I`m interested. -_-

    Yeah... I`ve encountered ALL those people in a span of 2 years working there. -.-

    The other day I had one person who was the Stoner, the Anchor, the Cellphone poohead, a mild version of the TTT, and the Procrastinator.
    ONE person, 5 out of 8 types of bad customer...
    Shoot me.

    He walks into the convenience store, stoned out of his mind, talking on his cell phone, drifting in and out of his phone conversation. While doing this, I kept asking how I could help him. He wanted `tobacco` rolling papers (I wonder what for ;)). And kept asking if we had any others.
    He finally decided what he wanted, and then continued to talk on his phone (about McDonald`s fish sandwiches). A couple minutes later I get him rung through, and he walks over to the cigar wraps and asks if he could grab one. I kindly tell him, no, we can get fined for having customers self-service tobacco products. He then asks why I can`t sell them. I reply that they aren`t self serve. And he starts yelling at me, telling me not to get upset with him.
    All this time, I`m helping the 10 people that h

    Wow, sorry TripleNipple. I actually do know where England is on a map, but I`m not familiar with the foreign currency. I`ve been to France and Spain (both of whom accepted Euros), so I didn`t know if England did or not. I actually do know pounds exist, but thought maybe they could accept both. (Here in Canada, I regularly take American cash) So... I didn`t think it was a horribly ignorant thing to question. My apologies for my foreign ignorance I guess.
