Is that so? If your boss was enough to make you leave, he must've been a colossal douche. I love my job as a cashier. It makes my regular's day when I ask them about something they mentioned before, or notice they've had a haircut, and that in turn makes me happy.
Dealing with cranky customers is only the downside at my job. Other then the bathrooms and sweeping, it's a nice job. I've met tons of friends there. Just when 1 person pulls down four forks that they don't need, means I have to restock them constantly. D:
I would love to be working again and thankfully I haven't had too much experience with difficult customers, but I can easily see that people should definitely be more reasonable when it comes to service :\ Don't piss off the guy who's handling your food- poisonous substances are an arm's length away.
Working retail currently bro. Get all kinds here. before that was Dishpit in the busiest restaurant in town. and before that was Lumber Yard Bitch and before that was Cashier
I know these feels all too well. Just trudge through it man. vent about the fucking customers when you get home. I'm glad I have the job, but I really hate the mentality that even the most mediocre and hard working jobs require the red carpet for customers. Like, I clean the dishes man. I don't give a damn if you didn't like the meal.
Truth. I had a guy experience freakin' explosive diarrhea in my restaurant while I was on shift. They told me to clean it. and "it" as in the entire stall. I just left early before they could find me. Uhhhhhh
My mom works at a fabric store. Someone came to the door at 9 pm to find the door locked, because they close at 9. The dumb bitch of a customer COMPLAINED to the company about it, and now they can't lock their doors until 9:15 despite the fact they still work at 9.
Moral of the story, people that come after the store is closed get none of my sympathy and all of my hate.
I go through the same thing when it comes to opening the door when the store is closed. I work at a clothing store and once we were closed, the sign was turned to "CLOSED", the lights were off, the computers were down, however, one employee forgot to lock the door. We heard the chime that someone came in and low and behold it was a lady shopping around. I was like "Really?". When we told her we were closed she was like, "Oh, I'll just be a second." Lady, the registers are shut down! We are not booting them up and staying an hour over (which we would not be paid for) so you can shop. It was really late at night too.
But that comes with the customer service jobs. You just have to set your foot down on some people or they'll walk all over you.
I dislike when people come in right as we're about to close and dine in. We can't say our lobby just closed because they'll complain and someone will get fired. Reminds me of the time someone got fired because we ran out of food and most of the food takes over an hour to cook. Our ribs take five hours to cook, people don't understand it's not our fault.
