Retail Warriors Share Nightmarish Customer Stories

Retail workers have undoubtedly been one of the most under-appreciated class of workers since the dawn of mass consumerism. Being polite and helpful to rude customers all day for a wage that barely covers living expenses is soul-sucking enough when there isn't a series of commercial holidays intersecting with a global pandemic. Since the dreaded Black Friday is upon us, we thought we'd share a handful of retail horror stories from the subreddit r/TalesFromRetail for all the brave wage warriors out there. You're not alone and we feel for you.

customer service, retail, retail hell, retail workers, yikes, cringe, customers, stupid people, facepalm, reddit, karen, jobs, holidays, black friday | 10k Damages Over 10 Cent Overcharge Medium This happened few years ago working at large upscale beauty supply Wigs/ Weaves/etc Our register bit old fashioned so had punch some items by hand. Usually not big deal, but definitely left some room human error. One day woman came and my coworker pressed wrong button and overcharged her by 10cents

Twitter Thread: The Insanity Of Working At A Grocery Store During The Holidays

It doesn't take a genius to know that working retail during the holidays is an absolute shitshow. But Twitter user @dylan_thyme took to the site to share how insane it is to work in a fancy grocery store in particular. From shows of extreme entitlement, to people who are apparently willing to throw away money, it's a thread filled with trashy atrocities - and of course, the token Karens. Let's all resolve to be extra nice to grocery store workers this year. They deserve it.

Twenty-Nine Times People Were Trolled By 'Customer Service'

We love anyone willing to troll, roast, or deceive people on the internet - as long as they steer clear of bullying. This kind of mischief is pretty much all we have in the prank zone now that so many people are cooped up inside. One of the best trolls of all time, that fake Customer Service account, was actually run by two Georgia comedians. They'd troll some pretty obnoxious people by changing their account's profile photo to whatever business the poor sucker was trying to tear apart. We've put together some of their greatest hits, but damn do we wish these dudes were around for the age of Karen.

Twitter Users Bond Over The Heartless Entitlement Of Patio Diners

Dining outside, in many parts of the United States, is a happy seasonal treat. A chance to take in the sunlight while enjoying a relaxing drink or some good food. But as many cities are reopening following coronavirus lockdowns (some only allowing outdoor dining) Twitter user @fresshel (Helen) felt the need to remind people of how insufferable and entitled patio diners can be. Her June 19th tweet reads:

" Anyone who has worked at a restaurant with outdoor seating already knew tht patio people do not care if u live or die"

While this may sound like an unfair generalization of people who prefer to dine al fresco, it seems that many people who have worked in restaurant and bar service agree with Helen's sentiment. In the tweet's replies, people are sharing horror stories of "patio people" and revealing that a surprising number of sadistic people actually dine in the rain - forcing their servers to get soaked or be escorted with an umbrella. Next time you decide to sit on the patio, remember these people and avoid this entitled behavior. And remember to tip your server.

Frustrated Manager's Twitter Thread Reveals How COVID-19 Brings Out The Worst In Customers

As hysterical citizens flock to Targets, Walmarts, and local businesses to hoard toilet paper and hand sanitizer, some seem to forget that the people stocking shelves and managing stores are humans, too. Frustrated grocery store manager @dadopotamus took to Twitter to share his feelings about many COVID-19 fear shoppers: 

"I manage a grocery store.  I gotta say.  You're all giant scumbags."

While the tweet may seem negative, other retail workers joined in to share their experiences, and those of loved ones who are crumbling from the stress of trying to help people get the supplies they need. While of course there are polite people taking only what they need during this crisis, according to this thread there are far more people crying injustice and treating workers like crap. We've included many of the anecdotes in this gallery, but for more disappointment (and some seriously defensive tweets) check out the thread here.
