@allyfally:  working in customer service is just amazing. Why are people so rude? Why has all of this become acceptable behaviour?

OMG @allyfally….I think I love you….I work for a major retail store and I can sooooo relate to most of what you just said. One of my BIGGEST pet peeves is definitely the drinks in the trash…seriously???? in my position at work it’s more so my fellow employees that do it, but customers will still ask “Hey, do you have a trash can I can put this in?”….ummm….OH….the almost full cup of coffee/soda/slurpee that you or your bratty kid didn’t finish…? Um…no…BUT if you take it outside the door (the one you JUST walked in through), you can pour out the rest of your whatever, and there’s a HUGE trash can RIGHT there. I know you probably have a housekeeper and/or a nanny and/or your mother or mother-in-law at home that takes care of that kind of thing for you, but um…here in our store…well it’s NOT called a Do-It-Yourself store for nothin’….just sayin’…..

I also hated when people would just put their basket on the belt without removing the items!  I don’t know why it bothered me so much but it did.

I used to work in a gas station/convenience store as well. I recall the amazing stupidity of a lot of people. Those were 4 years of my life that I won’t forget. My favorite was when some rodeo guy came into our store not wearing a shirt and then proceeded to pull his pants down via his hands in the pockets to reveal an area of him I really did not want to see…not all the way down, but lower than a low-rise jean on a woman. Ewww. He was trying to flirt with me.

About a zillion eons ago (my 20s and 30s) I used to work part-time as a Cashier, then later a Waitress in the Restaurant biz (first fast food, then chain)… did this in order to make ends meet while in college, and getting established in life.

By far, Fast Food was by the worst…

We truly used to say, that there were people who would get up for their day and say…

“Gee what am I gonna do today… lets see, I’ve got nothin better to do, maybe I’ll go down to the   McDonalds / Subway / Burger King etc   and see if I can’t p!ss off the cashier there for kicks”

People were BEYOND the “normal” limits of RUDE and STUPID… they were downright MEAN SPIRITED AND AWFUL.

Saw amazing stuff in my 10 years or so in the Restaurant Biz…


Have to say the worst tho was…

When doing an hourly check in the woman’s bathroom and I discovered some obviously full grown adult had decided to take a dump in the garbage can… I mean they SAT on it and took a dump !!

Pooh everywhere… in the garbage can, smeared on the counters, wall, sink… everywhere !!

Unfrickin believable !!

Honestly some folks are ANIMALS and should be locked up / caged for the protection of others !!

My first job was being a cashier while I was in college. After the business closed down (I had only worked there a year and a half), I SWORE that I would never ever work retail or customer service ever again. So far I have kept that promise to myself.

People can be so awful! I worked in a corner store when I was 18 and the things people  would do was crazy. There was a guy who didn’t want to wait in line, so he would throw money and leave…then expect his change next time he came in! A creep who would buy a single can of Pepsi and stand just a few feet from the counter, starring at me while slowly sipping his drink (he scared the $h!t out of me!) And of course, rude kids, rude adults, mess makers, shoplifters and arrogant jerks, I don’t miss it. 

Oh! And people who would get all upset about being asked for ID when buying cigarrestes!
