Today, a customer berated me and told me to stop whining because I have to work on the weekend. What did I do to deserve this? I said, "Hi, how are you doing today?" FML

You should have just hugged him and said *shhhhh it's okay... I know* and then he would have started crying because of his deep emotional trama.

Someone's having a bad day FYL op.

How dare you say such a thing? First world problems, am I right?

No. No you're not.

I imagine he was joking

1- your pic looks like spaghetti and meatballs with eyes.

#38 has not heard the good word of Pastafarianism

#38 That's because that's exactly what it is

I wonder if that would have worked

You should've told them to stop projecting their unwanted thoughts into you

Well, someone was having a bad day...

As crappy as that was op, just remember that that person is probably going through a really hard time and having a bad day. Maybe they just lost someone close to them. It doesn't excuse their behaviour, but it helps me realize that people often say things and react in ways they usually wouldn't just because of what's going on in their lives.

Having a bad day or going through something in your life does not justify being rude to someone simply doing their job. I've had days where I was near tears or seethingly angry but if I had to interact with someone in customer service I switch those emotions off, smile, and be polite.

#42- If you had actually read the second half of #41's comment, you'll see that she says something like "it still doesn't excuse the customer's behavior" and she's right about the rest. I personally try to make myself realize that a lot of people are extremely rude only because they are going through a hard time, they don't feel good about themselves, etc, etc and they don't know how to process that negativity correctly. She's simply implying that she allows herself to let it go because she tries to be understanding and, based on my personal experience, it usually helps make you a happier person because you don't let things like that bother you. If things go too far, yeah, don't let it go because some people really are just assholes. But most of the time, it's best to just try to be kind and understanding.

Seems as if they've been having a bad day. Sorry OP! Just get past it. People will always be stupid!

Hi, how are you doing today?

Not bad, actually. Thanks for asking.

Well. My father died of asphyxiation earlier today.

So condescending, how dare you greet someone! Haha, I get it all the time in the hospital. Don't let someone else darkness dim your light!
