I've seen that before in a bakery. A woman came in to order a loaf they make there and got the money out to be told the price had gone up by 20p. She shouted at the staff for a good 5 minutes saying this was no way such a loyal customer to be treated! Poor lady behind the counter had to explain four times that she only does Saturdays and doesn't decide the prices....
Some people overreact far too much. My mother sent me to a store once to get some delicious garlic bread and when I went in I found that the price for a loaf had gone up 50 cents. I didn't freak out. Instead, I went to my car and dug around for quarters to pay the difference. There are good ways to handle things and there are bad ways. In your case, that woman handled it very badly.
Well I am sure you and your co-workers had a good laugh at her expense, she is the one who looked stupid after all--not you. Though it is not nice to be called a slut.
Where my brother works, no matter if he's on duty or not, he has to keep letting customers in front of him.
I've heard of bitchy customers, but this just takes the cake. Maybe when she said "Fruity Tart!" she was just talking about your cake.
