Today, a customer yelled at me so furiously that she sprayed my face with spittle. I had to stand there, smiling and politely explaining that I needed to see a receipt before I could give her a refund. When she finally gave up and left, my boss bitched me out for "provoking the customer". FML

19 - I wish I was taller then. Being 5'9" certainly does not help when I cannot intimidate anyone merely by my height. And yes, I am intimidated by anyone 6' and taller and won't complain to them.

#41 that's the best idea I've ever heard. Think about it. 1 day where employees can talk back to customers and not get fired for it. I will sign that petition.

For some reason "yuck as fuck" seriously made me giggle like a little kid. I'm now determined to use it in as many situations as possible!

Me: "Ewww that is so yuck as fuck!"

I also work in retail and quite often have to refuse sale of alcohol to those without ID. The worst I've had is a customer screaming at me for it and throwing the basket and the cans of beer at me, I got a written warning for processing customer refusals incorrectly and leaving my till mid service to go wash my face off and sort myself out!

Retail is a bitch, particularly customer service roles, but despite all of the crap that you get everyday, I found that if I can just improve one person's day then it's makes it worthwhile!

13, What a great outlook and attitude! I commend you on it. If only more people looked at their job and their life as a way of bringing others up and encouraging them then the world would be a match happier life.


Never worth it.. In the end its the corporates who take away all the money, fame & credits. Go get a life dear before time runs out, life is too short too take all this crap.. soon you will realize you are in your 70's and still working in that same position.

59, surely it's that mindset that keeps us in a society where 'it's not worth it' to put a smile on people's faces? Happiness is by far the most essential part to life, how you get it is down to you. For me it's making those around me cheer up and smile, to me that makes it well 'worth it'! :)
