worst place you've worked as far as customers

checkuroil's thread about visiting Chuck E Cheese on 'gangs eat free' night made me think of this. What was the worst job you had, strictly from how bad or entitled the customers were?

Retail sales - cellphone industry. T-mobile was OK but VZW was by far the worst.

back in high school i worked at a Kinney's Shoes 1991

 

it was the worst and the best

 

i can't tell you how often i got hit on by milfs

 

this was back when you went to a shoe store the sales associate actually put the shoe on your foot for you (for those old enough to remember)   so i honestly can't tell you how many times i'd be kneeling down and the woman would be intentionally showing me her goodies while her husband or kids are standing or sitting right next to her.

 

was awesome but frustrating at the same time...and there was always the one step away from homeless guy who would come in and try on 10 differnet pair of shoes with his feet smelling like a cross between spoiled cabbage, horse manour and big white sexy's arm pit. and you'd be down there having to touch his feet.

Grave yard waiter Shift at a Downtown Vegas Casino.Saw plenty of world starr worthy fights but mostly cunty bums and asshole cab drivers.

When I worked for a third party Verizon distributor, it was pretty awful. It was the usual fair regarding phone service, getting yelled at multiple times a day for various things people were pissed off about. The worst was that because we were third party we weren't even legally authorized to view people's monthly statements, that made people even angrier.

I didn't last long.

How the fuck is that even possible? Doesn't Olive Garden have a policy that customers can't share an endless menu options? I don't blame you for being pissed, that's ridiculous.

McDonald's when i was 16, every customer treated you like you weren't shit.

Pretjah, I sold shoes for several years in high school and college. I had the same experience. I also put the shoes on the customers' feet. Kids were bad, too - a lot of work for cheaper shoes meant small commissions.

I worked at a gas station convenience store. People generally ranged from mediocre to complete and total assholes, and lottery ticket addicts are some of the most pathetic and annoying people ever.

The worst I have now are guys that are "inventors".

I'm in manufacturing, and they'll come in with some idea that's either going to make them rich, or change the world. Almost all of them never see the light of day.

Most of the time, they don't even really have a design. Or when I tell them the limitations, or that what they are looking for can't get done, they get pissed off.

If there is a design, they will bitch about the cost. Or how long it will take. Usually both.

When I try to explain to them I'm in the middle of developing a product for GM/Ford, medical industry, etc, and I have to give them preference, they get pissed off.

99 times out of 100, it ends up being a waste of time. So now I just tell them what it's going to cost at a minimum and how long it will take, and be honest. That usually runs them off.
