I can't believe your manager would actually think your were serious about something like that. Hopefully you didn't get into too much trouble. Might want to rethink your place of employment.

Well if the manager was worried about other customers hearing something like that then they would have just talked to OP. Maybe threaten to reduce OP's hours or even fire him. Calling the cops is over doing it.

Well considering op's reaction im guessing it wasnt the first time he said something like that. U can't just walk around threatening people no matter how rude they are. And especially not if people can hear you. Every job has its down sides, still he chose sales, everybody knows at one point you will have to deal with rude customers.

You shouldn't have to get used to rude customers, the manager should grow some balls and handle the situation. There's a difference between being upset and being belligerent, management has just lost the ability to tell the difference and handle it appropriately. It's called being tactful, you tell people what they don't want to hear by wording it respectfully, and ask them to leave if they continue being stupid. It's all about wording it right. Just because you're a customer doesn't mean you can treat anyone however you want.

I can completely understand why OP said it. Working in any type of retail job can really test your patience and sometimes the only way to get through your shift is to say stuff like that yourself.

Except the customer wasn't in earshot and OP muttered it to himself, no one else. I understand not saying it to other people but he didn't, he said it to himself when he was sure the customer couldn't hear.

#60, the negativity was not intended to be expressed to anyone but OP. It's relief from some of the frustration when people are able to express the emotion in some way. In fact, I would argue that NOT doing this in some form or another would actually be a detriment to your mental well-being. And it was inteded for OP ONLY. OP intended for no single other individual to have heard that statement.

#60, they should pay more to deal with shitty customers, I would regularly end up with abusive customers that would almost leave me in tears just because we ran out of stock of something or something equally as minor. Customers take it out on those who aren't in control.
