I Have to Bite My Tongue!
I often come across rude people especially working as a sales assisstant. But just as an example of "rude" on a day to day basis for me, i will tell you about 2 customers i had to do. I work at Blockbuster Video and every member has a members card. We ask for it everytime but most of them forget it, so for security purposes we ask to see ID instead, so we can look up their membership and know we are giving it to the right person. This one guy came up and as usual i ask if they have their card, he said no, so i said have you any ID? he looks at me in disgust "excuse me? ID?" so i say it's for security reasons and he could be anybody trying to use anybodys account (which is true) and he says "Urgh! well the manager know me". My boss was at the back of the shop and we was really busy and no way could he have heard me if i'd have called him over. So i politely said "well sir i don't know you, my boss isn't here to confirm and the ID is standard procedure for members without their cards", so then he delves into his wallet and chucks his driving license at me. I take it like it hasn't bothered me even though by this time i wanted to slam his head onto the counter. I start to type in his name onto the computer and he throws another card at me. Then he just starts chucking every card he has in wallet at me all the while shouting "is this enough ID for you! How about this one? or this or this!" A*hole.
Second (was a man again) and he wanted a Nintendo DS. We have display boxes on shelves and on that very day (which was busy again) we had ran out and didn't have time to put out of stock stickers on them. So this guy comes up with a box and i explain we have sold out of them. He goes "your f*cking joking aren't you?". So i just said "well no and i'm sorry" and then i recommend a few places where he might have more luck. He just starts shouting "but this is for my daughters birthday it's tomorrow and you haven't even got out of stock stickers on them! you f*cking b*tch!". Chucks the box behind the counter and storms off! WTF??? lol
I should get paid more. Some really rude stressy people out there.
