"C**t"omer Service Part 1

"C**t"omer Service Part 1

A Story by AlexValkyrie
"

Based on true experiences I've had

"
"So does your ice cream melt?"
Inwardly I groaned, knowing I was totally incapable of answering this question with any level of sincerity. Still I had to try.
"The display keeps it cold sir. But if it were taken out it would begin to melt after a few minutes depending on how warm it is in the store."
The customer glared at me. "No need to be rude. You minimum wage workers are all the same."
My fingers gripped the ice cream spades tighter but I calmly asked, "Would you like to try some flavors or are you ready to order sir?"
"Don't give me that attitude."
I felt myself being dragged towards my breaking point. Fortunately my grandmother who owned the store came out and noticed the customer, recognizing him. 
"This guy is my friend, I'll serve him. Why don't you do some dishes in the back?"
At this point I was unsure if she had heard anything the customer said but I gladly obliged. I thought to myself, "Of course customers deserve the best service. And of course I have no right to be rude at all. But kindness should be a human responsibility. Not a work responsibility. I am human as well and deserve the same respect, if not more respect, than someone who thinks certain kinds of ice creams won't melt."
I shrugged it off and started washing the dishes.

Author's Note

AlexValkyrie
This is my outlet for the frustrations of dealing with customers. If you have something rude to say about the people who serve you, you are absolutely not welcome. I have always excelled at going out of my way to kiss ass until my breath smells like shit. Customers are just to blind to see it.

I know the feeling! I had a lady that yelled at me saying that she wasn't going to come back to the store I was working at and she was going to call the head managers because she didn't read a sign correctly and acted like it was my fault she didn't know how to read. This one lady one time was so mean she made me cry. I was going to let it out in the break room but people ended up being in there. So I waited for my ride to pick me up before I let it all out. So I know how you feel!!! I would have done the same thing in your situation and from the sounds of it you were just fine. I dont know what that guys problem was but I would be like if you think you can do better you are more than welcome to fill out an application and show me how to do my job. Sorry for this being so long. Great part one!! Can't wait to go and read part 2 =) Keep up the good work!!

Every time someone says "I'm never coming back" I feel a strong desire to say "Thank God"
