By fuck you, boss - United States

Make your mind up

Today, my boss scolded me for being too friendly to our customers and told me to back off and let them do their thing. Less than an hour after doing as he said, he scolded me again, this time for slacking off and not asking them if they needed help finding stuff. There goes my bonus. FML

The customer is not always right! Sometimes they are most definitely wrong...however bosses are a pain because they ask you to do one thing and then they aren't satisfied and ask you to do something else.

"The customer is always right" has to be the most stupid and damaging catchphrase to ever be introduced. It allows customers to become entitled fuckwads who think they can get away with anything (vulgar language, abusing employees, deliberately ignoring store policies, etc) and bosses to shift blame to employees when said customer complains.

"The customer is your priority" is more accurate since the goal is to accommodate their needs in order to guarantee a transaction, but there needs to be a point where you can say "You know what? It is not worth our time dealing with you, your constant scamming of our returns policy is damaging our income, and your rude behavior makes other customers uncomfortable and go elsewhere. Piss off!". Then again if someone like Walmart implemented this policy they wouldn't have any customers left.

And just for some variety, use off milk mixed with ok milk, put 2 fingers in your armpit, rub them around and then wipe the rim of your bosses cup with said fingers. Or, you could just fart in the cup before/after you have made the coffee.

As a crazy person, I am insulted. Speaking on behalf of my fellow loons, we are not dickless brown nosing asshole megalomaniacs who enjoy fucking with people's minds. Definitely a main requirement for management in retail though.
