    Default You know what really grinds my gears?

    What really grinds your gears at the moment?

    I'm really sick of customers tbh. I swear about 75% of the customers that walk into Currys are all utter b**stards. I find that a lot of customers walk in with a bad attitude and lack communication skills. How does swearing and being verbally aggressive really help them find the product/help they require! It's just ludicrous.

    I've walked away from a Customer before saying that I don't get paid enough to take the abuse they are giving me. To which they stood there gob-smacked and stormed out the store as I walked to the staff room to have a coffee.

    I hate working retail sometimes.

    So what really grinds your gears?

    - people playing music out loud on their phones
    - people in general
    - arrogance
    - unspreadable butter
    - closed minded people
    - the government
    - travel prices
    - stereotypes
    - secondary school kids

    most of my hatred is based around people

    My gears? Usually sand or mud. :p

    Working in retail does have it's downside. Customers can be pains. But if you don't like it, don't do it.

    Yeah, working for any customer service is a real p*ss off. For some reason, customers think that just because you're being paid to be there and provide the service, that they can treat you as badly as they want. My boss sometimes p*sses me off too actually. He yelled at me once because people were leaving the cooler door open and the condensation inside ended up freezing up the pipes. I said "It's not like I try to leave the door open, I just forget sometimes, and I'm not the only one who does it either." Then he apologized and told me that he knew it wasn't all my fault he just needed to blame someone at the time. So he's not that bad.

    My school bell is actually pretty annoying now too. It used to be a ringing, now it's like a train sound. I think my science teacher was messing with them again and he must have put some padding in them.

    Hmm... you know, I don't think I've ever been rude to someone in retail... I wonder what causes a person to be so bitter. :s

    ^ Where I work I think it's normally because it's a gas station, so people tend to come in after long drives and they're a bit cranky, need to use the bathroom, hungry, etc. so I don't give them trouble over it.

    Hurray for night-time activity!
