I speak to a lot of people on the phone at work every day, and the calls I get from people under 25 are usually my favorite ones. I work for a mutual funds company and a lot of young people call in to redeem money from their college savings plans or find out how to claim custodial accounts that were set up for their benefit, and they're usually really patient and courteous when you help them out and answer the myriad of questions they have. The same also happens frequently with elderly investors who don't talk to their financial advisors anymore, but at least with the younger crowd they're more open to learning how to use our company's website so they don't have to call in every time they want to take out money or get a statement sent to them.
@Sexy Homunculus, on a side note the oldest person on my team is a woman in her 50s who's also named Janet. She's actually pretty chill, much more than the one in this pic
This happens at the place I work all the time, and they always get mad like it’s my fault. It always has the expiration date on the coupon, check your coupons, Janet
@K1l, hey now, that’s unfair. It’s not ALWAYS Janet. Heather does it too occasionally
@K1l, I work at a Drycleaners. The issue we get a lot is what the coupons can be applied to, and when they can be used. For example
Customer who has been here many times before: Can I use this coupon?"
Me: Sorry, it only applies to your first order
Customer: What does that mean
Me: It means you can only use it the first time you visit the store
Customer: *Proceeds to bitch and moan while I have to stand there and take it*
@K1l, the truth is that they know that the coupon is expired, but they want to try and get away with it anyways. Sometimes the cashier is incompetent or impatient enough that it works.
Refer to my previous statement you never know how terrible someone can be until you're serving them and the slightest thing goes wrong
You're right, instead you see them marching around on the streets destroying property and assaulting people while demanding more entitlement programs from the government at the expense of everyone else. Totally better than trying to use an expired coupon!
@Doctor Krieger, Yes because millennials are the first generation to have non-peaceful protests
@Doctor Krieger, example: serveral previous generations (yes in the U.S) had protests and even wars occasionally against black people and women because they didn’t want them to have equal rights.
@K1l, sure, but name similar violent and entitled protests from a generation alive today.
@K1l, name these "protests and wars". Klansmen lynching people is not a protest for entitlement.
@Doctor Krieger, There have been people in ever single generation ever to have unpeaceful, violent protests. Just because there are millennials today that have been involved in violent protests, it doesn’t make us a violent generation. You wanna know entilted? Im 100% certain that there baby boomers were involved in several violent protests because they didn’t want black people to have the same rights as them. Im sure there are also many unpeaceful protests from Gen X that were violent for whatever reason, we just haven’t heard about them because it’s not current, topical news and they’ve been forgotten about, just like these protests will be in 20 some years. Sure, millennials are the only violent generation currently, but that’s because the other generations are too old.
@Doctor Krieger, im not giving you a history lesson on the fact that most people in most generations before Gen x were extremely racist. I shouldn’t have to list specific violent protests that both of us know happened
@Doctor Krieger, well I mean there were mobs of people that went and beat people or worse because how dare anyone think black people can ride unsegregated buses
@Doctor Krieger, and then there was a huge protest against five black kids going to a white school when desegregation of schools was happening
@K1l, I think you're missing the point. Where are the violent and ENTITLED protests? We're not talking about racism here.
@Doctor Krieger, didn’t the racism-related protests happen because black people (rightfully) thought they should be entitled to the same rights as white people? I think I’m a little confused about what you’re asking. Aren’t all protests technically based on entitlement in some way?
Entitled definition: believing oneself to be inherently deserving of privileges or special treatment
If protests by white people against black people having equal rights isn’t the prime example of entitlement, the definition means nothing
The customer is always right....
@Pocket Knights, FVVVVVCK THAT!
@Pocket Knights, The customer is very frequently a cvnt
@Pocket Knights, but never correct
The millennial has no job and lives at home, why would they even need to ask for coupon to be valid if it's their Mother having to demand for a little break because they are having to financially support their 25 year old in the basement?
Am I the only one who reads "aye" as "I"?
@Quoth the Revan, Aye
@Quoth the Revan, aye mean, it's how you're supposed to read it.
@Quoth the Revan, you are correct. Despite being spelled differently, it is pronounced the same as the letter i or the body part eye.
Get with the program Janet!
