worst customer experience Answered

Has anybody had a real bad experience with a customer? or a customer with an employee? So i was once worked at an ice cream parlor.A woman says to me in Spanish and the only word i recognized was chocolate (there's actually two chocolate flavors, regular and chocolate pecan ) so i gave her the pecan one ...she tastes it and she threw it at me, (lucky for me i had to do the long shift). On that same day another woman showed up and asked for chocolate pecan in broken English and i asked waffle or cone (people never specify waffle or cone) she gave me a dirty look and i gave her the cone,she throws it down on the ground, Being the only one there and I had to mop it up, some customers are yelling at me in spanish (later i figured out it was bad words). So by the end of that day i had about 5 people throw ice cream at me 2 were adults and 3 were kids. But i didnt quit because of that it was because the manager keep making me work on days i had school

The only real job I ever was selling game currency to people. I did that for like a month before I got bored of it. I made plenty of cash that month, (For a fourteen year old) The worst customer I ever had was a stupid 12 year old kid who spoke the most horrible English ever. He got mad and threatened to "sew" me because I told him I wouldn't do be business with him until he decides to use Spell-check. Meh.

As a photographer, I did pet portraits for someone, when I gave them a CD of their pictures, they complained that the pictures didn't show their dog's personality enough, because the dog wasn't being himself that day. They expected me to come back out (45 minute drive) to take them again, no extra charge.

People take just as good pictures of their pets as they do of other people. Credentials for any type of photography come from portfolios. Good pictures of pets can be hard to get, especially because they don't like to stay still/pose for you.

Did you ever ask them just "who" their dog WAS being that day ? I wouldn't be good as a small company owner as I tend to fire customers like that...yeah, I fire customers :-)

As a customer, Pan Am, some fly by night bought the name, had tickets to chicago, flights delayed hour and a half later they say two more hours two hours later they say six more hours went back to the ticket desk and said "You have five minutes to return my luggage to me". Went home, found out my dad had died, that was a bad day. They ended up canceling the flight but refused to return my money, got the CC company involved, got my money back. On the other end, as a gov't employee, I'm always amused by "I pay your salary" HAR HAR

No cuz I live in a different county than I work for. BTW I just received my non merit based merit raise after my annual performance review, however the decision as to who will receive the non merit based merit raise is irrelevant to the performance review as the merit raise is non merit based, therefore everyone gets the raise regardless of review. it's unsane.

Are you complaining about the fact that you got a raise? It really seems like you are.

I'm complaining about the methodology behind getting the raise, the same senselessness that the county applies to everything. BTW 3% raise Whoop de doo! Doesn't even cover the increase in gasoline.

When I worked for a VW shop (programming the TRS-80 computers in BASIC), a customer called late at night and screamed and yelled about suing us. But that was not the worst one: the worst one came during the day, a fellow demanded his car be fixed for free, since he brought it in to be fixed, we said it needed new injectors, but he wanted them "repaired instead". He was warned it could leak and catch fire....and guess what it did do. So, he was going to go home and get his shot gun and take care of the situation....I was a little frightened at the time ( I was only abou18 too young to be shot for being in the auto repair business *sigh*).

My neighbor was working the midnight shift at blockbusters when he got robbed. I live in a small town so stuff like that doesn't happen too often. He was held at gun-point and locked in the bathroom. He quit the next day.

future shop. i spent 15 min drumming my fingers on the counter before someone noticed me. they sent some guy who could not speak English. he was from the fridge section, and obviously could not help me with my computer problem. i resisted the urge to say: could i talk to someone who didn't come here on a floating door?? and managed to explain how i needed a computer technician. he came, sneered at the dead motherboard i had and said: we don't sell that kind of old junk. buy a new computer. i have never gone to future shop or best buy since.
