Today, a customer at work said his table was dirty. I asked which one he was sitting at so I could clean it for him. For some bizarre reason he got pissed and called my manager over. He ended up reporting us to corporate, and my manager got written up. He's blaming me for everything. FML

This needs a follow up. I want to know what the guy said.

It is so stupid how corporations & managers write people up or fire them over the stupidest little customer complaint. People are idiots. Someone shouldn't lose there job because someone else is a moron. They shouldn't get written up either.

OP should have reacted by picking up the nearest table, said "is THIS the one?" And thrown it into the customers face. Either way he gets in trouble, so why not enjoy the opportunity for a WWE smack down?

Then OP could probably get charged for assault? OP clearly deserves it as they should've had the common sense to know that it was a shitty corporate owner they were dealing with. Lrn2read people OP

OP deserved what he got as much as your comment deserves a thumbs up.

OP needs a new job, and a better paying one at that...

What if op was rude about it. We really don't know......

Comment moderated for rule-breaking.

Show it anyway

I'm going to assume you haven't either.

I dont get it

I assume he means the manager, and not the OP. Still. . Not sure how that has any relation to this. xD

I think he's trying to imply that someone is stressed out due to not getting laid in a long time. Who he's referring to? no one knows.

I agree. I feel that bosses should stick up for their employees. In this case the boss should have tried to calm the man down & explain that his employee did nothing wrong, and if the guy was still freaking he should've given the number of his higher ups and kicked him out, immediately going to his higher up and explaining that they will most likely be getting a call from some psycho customer.

I work in retail and in my first week I got screamed at for 10 straight minutes because our store was "misleading." She was referring to how our sale signs said "with purchase of 2 or more" in the top corner. Anyways she threatened to call head office and have me fired. Some people just want an excuse to yell.

I work in a restaurant and i meet the most rudest people and attitude. It's kinda hard to keep a cheerful mood to asshole customers and smile at them saying,"Have A Nice Day!"

That sucks. Hopefully you don't lose your job

Shouldnt you magically know which table he was sitting at?

I would guess the not clean one. But that's just me.

It's quite difficult to tell if a table is clean, as they may be referring to a sticky table from a spilled drink, which can only be seen at certain angles. Also there may have been several different tables that could fit the description.

Good point on the sticky/spilled drink. I didn't think of that. But if there's multiple dirty tables it's time to get someone out to buss and wipe.

why dont you get to it then?! they're not going to clean themselves!

I swear some people just want a reason to call the manager! Hopefully your not fired op.

well, the customer is always r- wait what was he even pissed about

He is pissed because op asked what table he was sitting at.

Ah, captain obvious, we meet again...

I hate customers like that!! you will never understand how hard it is working a job like that until it's you doing it!

my favorites used to be the purple who would eat half their food. then complaine ab it.

Ah yeah, purple, they just turn out of the blue and ruin your day.

Personally I think the greens are the worst of it.

Ugh, greens just make me red with anger.

And what about those horrid yellows.

Don't worry that customer will get his someday.

Never give up! Never surrender!

I laughed my ass off at this. Well done!
