The Question Club
This one is for all of you who work/have worked minimum wage or near minimum wage jobs in which you deal with customer service.|
My fiance and I were complaining to each other about our jobs the other day- we've noticed that around the holidays, people/customers/"guests" get even more bitchy, mean, rude, and demanding. Has anyone else noticed this?
Also, we were discussing about how we wish that we didn't have to kiss customers' asses all the time, and when they're rude, give them what they want with a smile. For example, this lady came in to my store the other day, ordered her food, and when we gave it to her, I admit, we got her order wrong. But instead of pointing it out to us politely, she YELLED at us and called my coworker an incompetant idiot. I wanted to tell her she was being a bitch, and if she couldn't be nice, then to get out of the store. But no, we had to smile at her and apologize profusely. I hate that stuff. So... if you were allowed to treat customers the way they treat you, would you be willing to make 50 cents less than you do now? How about a dollar? A dollar-fifty?
If I could treat customers the way they treated me, I'd be willing to take a dollar pay cut.
