Today, I got yelled at by my boss for being insensitive to a customer. I'd told her I never heard of the requested item even existing. She walked off shouting, screaming and throwing stuff from the shelf. She wanted to order a bird feeder with heated perches so the bird's feet won't get cold. FML

No it's like a bird feeder, which is in the comment

Oh dear..

Sounds like she's drain bamaged. Prolaby otter gut therrrrrrr*beeping sound*rrrt fixed and you'll be good to go. Seriously, what the hell just happened?

9, I believe comments 1 & 11 are supposed to be sarcastic.

Yes, it's a mansion and it comes with a bird snuggie.

Man, I hate when I get my drain damaged 36.

Drain bamage... XD

You should patent that.

Little late for a patent. Quite a few companies make them for colder climates to encourage the birds to use them. Op looks like an imbecile to my fellow Canadians, even Walmart sells them here, a clerk at a pet shop is supposed to be at least a little informed on pet related products.

Op was probably thinking about a bird feeder for wild birds, not pet birds.

Sorry if we look like idiots thedrifter, but in the USA, at least where op lives (i live in the same area) bird feeders like that aren't common. I've never heard of that or even thought of it. We aren't big on birds over here. Even in our super walmarts I barely see bird items.

Don't know where my comment went... I live in the States and I see them rather frequently at Walmart, Petco, Petsmart, Agway...

#59, some of us don't live in areas where products like that are common. Where I live in Texas, there are barely any basic bird supplies, much less any 'fancier' products. Just because something is common to you, doesn't mean it's common to everybody.

OP wasn't hired to think. (s)he is hired to be knowledgeable in the field and to provide good customer service. The least OP could have done is to ask other staff about it.

I'm Canadian and I never knew about these.

Crazy bird lady. O.o

Nice birds you have there. Would be a shame if anything were to happen to them. 0.o

That's what I'm called. I have 10 of the suckers

Yea.. There's a reason that product doesn't exist.

Fried Fenton's anyone?

They exist. My Walmart, Agway, Petco, and Petsmart all sell them.

Birds don't have feet they have claws... Just sayin

Bird talons = bird feet. Birdy feet. SQWAH!

You have to admit that's kinda funny...

Isn't that how you're supposed to handle all situations like that these days?

She's American. Tell her you have little kabbalah ankle threads for the birds. The keep their feet warm through ancient mystical forces, ward off cats and will ensure all their eggs are fertile. Only $24.99 for a pack of 10. Recent breakthrough in kabbalah technology by chiropractors means that they now come in other colours that just red (suck on that Madonna!). Then go out back, pull a few loose threads off your jeans and whack them in a plastic bag.

Crazy people we share the planet with...

Dude, today I went to the store to buy a heated purch bird feeder, and the douche behind the counter was so insensitive! He didn't know what the hell I was taking about... ;)

Ask him to get it for her as you feel there are too many bad feelings between you and the customer now. Make sure he chases after her.

That was so terribly worded I could barely make out what you were trying to say.

This idiot girl post on almost every FML and gets negatived on every comment she makes. Someone tell this chic to get a clue.
