I don’t work in the food service industry… however, I am almost done with pharmacy school (doctorate program… 7 long years of studying to earn that degree), and people treat the retail pharmacy as if it were McDonalds and that they can just drive up and magically have their medicine 90 seconds later.  They have absolutely no idea what needs to be done to get their medication ready for them (and it’s not just pouring from a big bottle to a little bottle!)  I’ve had people argue that they want the medicine even though they are allergic to it!

Sorry, end of rant.

UUUUUUuuuuggghh I know how you feeeeeeel. Yesterday and today, its been a FLOOD of incredibly rude people. It makes me want to smash my face against a wall. I just want to stare at them and ask. “Do you have ANY idea how rude you are?!” When did manners become optional!? P.s. get off the g-damn cell phone and look at ME when you are asking for something.

I used to work with the Parks and Recreation Department in my hometown and that meant that I had to work concession stands sometimes. I ALWAYS had rude customers, rude kids, equally rude parents… One parent got mad at me because I got onto her kid for trying to climb behind the counter because I wouldn’t let him have a burger for free. I wasn’t rude to him, just told him that he had to get down.

But it’s not just food service, I used to work at a movie rental place and people were even worse there.

@Mrs. Puffin: I’m not going to defend the old man’s rudeness – no excuse for that. I wonder though whether he might have been frustrated by all of the choices and the feeling that he could not get a simple salad.

@Mrs. Puffin: Some older people get really set in their ways and have a hard time dealing with change or many choices. Sucks that he was rude to you. What kind of restaurant is this place?

Theres a way to handle frustrations and being rude is not one of them. Yesterday I just had so many rude people I started slipping and was rude back. Oh well, I can’t be good every day lol!
