Those Who Think It's Satisfying to Report Others- Ok, if I get really shitty customer service, I'm going to tell a manager... at least. But that's if the person providing customer "service" is not even trying. But I cannot stand it when people report people in customer service just to have something to do. For instance, our new mail lady (have no clue if that's actually considered customer service, but it's what prompted the topic today so deal with it:)) that delivers mail to my work talks on her cell phone. A lot. And she doesn't dress very nice. But who the Hell cares? Well, apparently a co-worker of mine. She called and reported the mail lady and the mail lady was either fired or moved to a different route because she delivers no more. I think it's complete bullshit that someone would go and mess with someone else's livelihood just because the mail lady likes to talk on her cell phone and wears jeans everyday to work. She delivered the mail every day. She was nice when she actually talked. WTF is the problem?? Now her kids are probably gonna starve. And they'll have to kill their own dog for meat to stay alive. Just saying.
Those Who Treat Customer Service Reps Like Shit- So you walk into a store, grab the usual cup of coffee, giant cookie and pack of
Or the customers in restaurants who thrive on giving the waitresses/waiters a hard time just for the sake of looking cool in front of their friends. They should all be put on house arrest and never allowed in public again.
And this...you'll never believe. Boyfriend works in a video game store. Two customers came in and were looking at buying a Play Station 3. Well apparently, they didn't like the prices of the game systems so one of them decided to whip out his tiny manhood and piss all over the damn things. A grown ass man, and I use the term loosely, decided that since he couldn't afford to buy the PS3, he would just piss on them so that no one else could buy them either. WTF is wrong with people?
Those Who Hate Being in Customer Service- On the other hand, I absolutely hate it when I go somewhere and the person behind the counter treats me like a waste of space. Doesn't even acknowledge me, let alone treat me well. I have to get their attention just so that I can give them my money and get the Hell out of there. And then they act like I'm bothering them by coming in??? Seriously, if you hate customer service, find a new job. (Any DMV employees in my area reading this? I'm so talking about you.)
Those Who Mess Up Because They Don't Care- I understand mistakes. Everyone makes them. I'm sure you can find at least one in this very post. It doesn't bother me. What does bother me is when I'm trying to buy my stupid bookshelf-in-a-box at Wal Mart and the cashier is talking to the cute boy behind her register whilst taking my money and giving me back the incorrect change. And then when I ask for the rest of my money, she acts like I'm being just down right contrary.
Those Who Act as if Your Money Doesn't Matter- Much like Those Who Hate Being in Customer service, except this person just doesn't want to help you actually buy something. For example, you go into an Apple store with a few hundred bucks in your pocket and know exactly what you want. All you have to do is get someone to help you get that IPad your heart desires, but no one will take the time out of their busy socializing to help you.
Or being a young female like myself, I know from experience that I cannot get a damn car salesman to come out and help me. But as soon as I have someone older, especially male, they are like flies on shit.
