One time this customer wanted a pizza and diet dr kelp and we forgot his drink and started to scream at me. So I decided to throw the pizza in his face.
@Joe Dirte, aaaannd then they fired you.
@CriTiKa1, I think you might have missed the spongebob reference
@Batmanvoice, Maybe, haven't watched that show in over a decade.
@Joe Dirte, When the customer orders a medium and you give him a large. YOU GIVE HIM A LARGE! -JustKrustyKrabThings
@CriTiKa1, That episode came out over a decade ago, since I own it on Gameboy Advance Cartridge.
@CriTiKa1, I don't even like the show and I knew the reference......
@Joe Dirte, the Krusty Krab pizza, is the pizza, for you and me
@Gay Ninja, woah woah woah, hold up here, you don't like spongebob?
@Jeff Spicoli, no his voice irritates me..... And I just want to punch him half the time for being so stupid... I mean yes I understand it's a kids show but still! They have smart kids shows!
@Gay Ninja, spongebob is very clever
@CriTiKa1, you aren't worthy of your name
@Joe Dirte, Don't try to church it up, boy. You're Dirt and that's all you'll ever be.
I work in a food establishment, and can say that I have dealt with my fair share of unreasonable people. One time, a man called back after having his food delivered saying he didn't get a sandwich and wanted one brought to him. My manager then asked him if he had opened the bag of food yet, to which he said no. He then opened the bag, saw the sandwich was there and that was it. Just one example of many.
@BloodyBlade94, there was a guy that complained he didnt get diet coke with his order. I looked down and the straw wasnt even in the drink! He was just going based off the button on the lids.
@wolfman9803, it really makes you wonder about some people, huh?
@wolfman9803, that prob isn't as irrational as you think. The guy prob couldn't drink regular coke due to a heath problem and was double checking before he drank it. Isn't pressing in the buttons to identify the drinks something that staff are supposed to do?
@BloodyBlade94, How did the manager think of asking if he had opened the bag?
@King Tutu Fatcrack, no it's not
@King Tutu Fatcrack, but you get an upvote for using your noggin :)
@BloodyBlade94, I work at Potbellys, which caters, and this one woman comes in a lot, never on the same day, and wants us to make a catering order of 20+ sandwiches plus shakes, and complains when we are taking too long because we have a rush of customers walk in at the same time. And the worst part is EVERY TIME we tell her to call it in so we have time to work on it and never ONCE had she, in the many many times she comes in....
@HelpfulPaperclip, I'm not sure, but I'm glad he did.
@BaggyPipes, Some people just can't be pleased.
I worked at a cinema once. I had a woman come out of her film, pretend crying, demanding her money back. Why? She didn't know the film Snakes on a Plane had snakes in it and she was terrified of snakes. I refused and the manager backed me up
I used to work in the most popular club where I live. Naturally it's packed on the weekends. I was collecting glasses and trying to politely edge my way back to the bar and this guy was ready to attack me because I was "in his personal space" and then couldn't offer him and his friends an uncrowded part of the bar :| I just waved the bouncer over and suddenly there was no problem.. Weird huh?
@Ry Or Am I, oh my god I love this XD why can't other establishments have bouncers?
I'm a manager at a drive in restaurant in MO and I had a lady straight up come in and start yelling at me demanding 3 free shakes because she claimed to order 3 vanilla shakes but received chocolate. I asked when she had come in and she said she had been there like 2 hours ago. Well, little did she know that every employee working at the time was also working at the time she explained and none of us had ever seen her. She couldn't show me the shakes or a receipt or anything. So I scrolled back through each individual order in all the registers and there wasn't an order like the one she claimed to have in the entire system for that day. When I told her I couldn't give her any shakes or money back for an order she had no proof ever even happened, she caused a scene and threatened to sue me for serving her chocolate instead of vanilla because she could have died because she's allergic to chocolate. So I told her to go ahead and do that and see what happens and told her to leave.
As a bartender in a semi-upscale restaurant, I can confirm that this is true. I had people tell me everything was wonderful, and on their way out stopped at the host stand and screamed that I was terrible and tried to get my manager to give them a free everything on their next visit. Thankfully, my manager knows better. Better luck next time, betches.
@TacoBelle, there's a bar in Taco Bell? Huh. You learn something new everyday.
I work at McDonald's, so you can imagine the people I deal with. My biggest problem is when I'm working on front counter, and some person bangs on the drive through window, and asks where their food is. I will tell them "I'm not sure, I work the front counter, but I'll go ask who is working here when your food will be out" and give them a polite smile. The person then will often ask "you mean YOU don't know?!". People don't seem to grasp the concept that people who work at McDonald's don't have a hive mind.
Nearly skipped, but totally worth reading it all.
I use to work at subway when a man came in ordering two different 6inch subs, he wanted me to ring it up as a foot long 5$ sub. When I told him I could not do that( on a count that they were premium 8$ subs) he lost his mind for 10 min, he then threw the subs over my head and gave me a 20$ tip. Like WTF? Thank you ass hole?
@EvilGoku, you got a good tip, just don't question it
@EvilGoku, should have gone super saiyan on his a$$.
I work at a high end grocery store and I used to be a cashier. We had one woman who was notorious for returns. She came to my register one day with Halloween pretzels wanting to return them because they were stale. She didn't care that it was February.
Worked at KFC a few years ago, this guy asked for fresh cooked chicken, when he opened the box he says "umm why is it oily?" Apparently "because it's fried chicken" didn't explain the oil on his chicken
Working at BK, we had people in the drive thru asking if we were going to start serving Salad McShakers. Also had a guy who refused to believe we didn't carry the Flame Thrower Burger, because "I know you do, I just saw the commercial!" (Yeah, there was a commercial; it was a new sandwich at DAIRY QUEEN)
In the last sentence they use "the" twice in a row.
@I smell of smores, well noticed!
This a very accurate post. My experiences at McDonalds are on par with these!
During the Xmas season I worked for a company in the mall that sold "gourmet", individually wrapped cookies. To make them faster machines wrap and cut the packages. Anyway this woman claimed to have bought a sampler box where one cookie package was sliced open (common error with the machines) she said she called corporate and they told her to come to the store and we would give her a gift card, no receipt needed. The company didn't sell gift cards and she needed us to give her corporate's # again. That woman was full of crap.
I work in a pizza place as a driver. I swear. I have literally had to drive back deliveries because a customer "wanted thing crust instead of hand tossed"
Hmmm... Cheese Pizza. You can do anything you can set your mind to! Uncook a steak. I couldn't stop laughing and she drove away in anger. I'm trying to figure out what it means but... I just can't!
I work in a sporting goods store. A customer once yelled at the cashier and manager for a good 15 minutes because they read the ad wrong on the price of the running shoes with toes. The debate was over a $10 difference that happened because they couldn't do the math behind 50% off
@8 Inch Fallacy, well if they were $100 dollar shoes they may have been surprised to pay an extra $10 because some people forget a out tax.
Just an observation, but every single customer was a woman... even in the picture
@Alexander Cola, the worst people I've dealt with have been men. So it doesn't matter what gender.
I work at a car wash. One time I just finished doing an interior when the owner said i broke her radio. I asked to have a look at it and the first thing i did was turn the volume up and lo and behold, the radio was never broken.
If you guys like stories like this check out notalwaysworking.com
I work IT and a customer complained that they were getting spam messages.... in their spam folder.
I can't even begin to tell you all of the stories I get at Bed Bath and Beyond. I'll just leave it to your imagination when I say that we're not allowed to say "no" to the customers.
No one is going to read this, and I don't mean to be sexist, but anyone else realize all of the people were women?
@Nipples Enchilada, I read it, I'm a woman and even though you didn't say it, unfortunately a lot of women aren't smart because they feel they have to be served and given whatever they want our else it's being sexist. This applies to most but not all obviously. It also sounds like the stories are from the U.S. so it doesn't help that there is a sense of entitlement here.
Anyone else notice the majority of these idiots in the stories are women?
@Crabman, it would be more funny if all those stories were actually the same woman.
I work at SeaWorld, people tend to wine so much that we give them free tours, free strollers, free food deals, basically anything if they whine. They do it so they shut up and do it. But we also find a way to make them leave if they whine for too much
@High Summoner Braska, *whine
@Octavian Soup, I spelled it right
@High Summoner Braska, the first time you didn't.
My boss once told me how a customer asked for a pizza half cheese and half pepperoni. When said customer arrived to pick up the pizza they yelled at my boss because the "toppings were on the wrong side."
I work at a park that has natural waterfalls. More than once I have been asked when we turn them off or on (on when the water is very low due to a dry season). When I explain that they are natural waterfalls, some people insist that they should have a set time to be on and off, and have suggested we fix the "problem"
@Cmnder Shepard, What if a customers asks "What word can you not say to customers?"
@BlackGod, a lot of words, pick your favorite
I'm probably gonna get yelled at, but did anyone notice that in all the story's the customers were women??
Ladies and gentleman, people like this are the problem with America.
How steam support works: Can someone help me? ....Hello? .... It's been 2 weeks, you guys okay? ....Hello, thank you for being patient, the answer is no.
I work in a cafe an we have the menu sitting on the counter at eye level. It has breakfast on the front and lunch on the inside (like a normal freakin menu) well a lady picks one up has her thumb in between the pages looks at me and says "this only has breakfast" I was so shocked by her stupidity I could only put my hands together and open them (like a book)
I hate, no loathe customer service jobs... I have one right now and it's awful, customers can suvk a d1ck
I work at the fitting room in forever 21 and the lady demanded a manager and to talk to corporate because she said the mirror made her look fat
At a banquet hall we serve coffee that's already premade with milk and sugar and the amount of times people have asked me to take out the milk and sugar from their coffee is ridiculous. I can make an individual cup, but I cant reverse mix-out milk and sugar. Sometimes that's not good enough.

Cheese pizza. You can do anything you can set your mind to! Uncook a steak. I couldn't stop laughing and she drove away in anger.
I remember when I worked at Wendy's and this lady wanted a cheese burger without cheese.. so I said oh okay so a hamburger.. she got angry and said no she wanted a cheese burger without cheese.. I laughed at her face .and told her to learn how to order and called the next guest. Idk how I didn't get fired but I don't have time for dumb request..
I work at a Walgreens in one of the richest areas on the east coast The VP lives here and shops at my store about once a week. So I have to deal with literally hundreds of old rotten rich people all day. Sucks
We should send these picky ass people to north korea and see how it plays out for them.
