Good thing I'll never be able to buy a Lexus, 'cause that would annoy the crap out of me.

Terrible parents and their bastards will become subjects of the DOC in the future. I'd have lost it like the associate, too, and I wish more stores would boot out parents and their unruly children. I have almost lost it a few times while shopping because some "parent" didn't want to do anything about their rugrat running amok inside of a grocery store.

You want high-class treatment while acting like a boor, go to some place like Nordstrom's. They're paid to be nice to jackholes there.

I agree, I will add guess who gets to clean up the mess these kids make? The clerk of course.

It amazes me today how people think because they feel they were "slighted" that they have to take to social media to tell everyone. Even the cops are doing this. " the mean girl at Starbucks didn't let me use the restroom"....go tell the manager or Starbucks corporate. Not act like a 15 year old girl who didn't get her way.

Put on your big boy/girl pants, in life you're going to end up feeling slighted.

The stupid mom with the headband: "It was extremely unprofessional..."

Since when is being a clerk in a dollar store a "professional" job? Those poor people have to check, stock, face the aisles, clean the bathrooms, all kinds of grunt work, all while customers are in there shopping and needing to be checked out, and they get paid minimum wage for it. They have a hard job.

Granted, the poor clerk should not have screamed at them, but who can really, really blame her....those 8 kids were probably destroying all the facing of the merchandising that she had just done. Sadly, she will probably be fired.

"These two moms say they're taking their business, and their kids, elsewhere." LOL Just LOL. "Good riddance" is what I'd say if I were that store's manager.

I do well with most types most times, but I have had a "crazy moment" every now and then (none quite to that level). One I will quickly tell you of--I was outside gathering up loose carts, right by the door, I was only taking maybe 10-odd seconds. A lady appeared at the counter, I motioned to her "yes, I'm coming" basically saying "let me gather this 2-3 carts up and I'll be RIGHT THERE" (in a nice way of speaking). She started going "EXCUSE ME! EXCUSE ME! YOU WILL COME HERE RIGHT NOW" to which I replied "I will make that decision, not you." The funny thing is, in the ensuing transaction she didn't make an issue of it, she just frowned her way through the ensuing transaction and went on her way. Customers behind her were going "wow she was rude" and I replied "guess she forgot to take her Mydol pill."

I say that to say this.

We are called to tolerate a lot of stuff, let it go, shake it off, bite your lip, you can always gab about it later (or when customers behind such people make comments, you can agree with them and let that be your "venting"). For the most part, I agree. HOWEVER, after awhile, and with more extreme things, I think there is a time where it's appropriate to say something and respond to it. This whole thing of tolerating everything all the time and saying nothing is ridiculous.
This is so true. And true in any customer service position. In my long employeed life I have worked in restaurants, hotel front desk and now, retail and that's how it's been in ALL those jobs. We are not allowed to have a "bad day" and if we are we better not show it. I have to say that the vast majority of my customers are really nice people. The 'bad apples' I can live with. They are only going to be at my register for a few minutes and gone.

OK, thanks. I guess it shows my lack of contact with the justice system.

I support having a one-child limit per customer, per store. A special permit should be needed for two children, gained only by meeting with each store manager in advance. More than three is an absolute no-no. Hire a babysitter or make a pact with a friend or family member. Be responsible rather than demand more tolerance from the rest of us,,,including store clerks.
this is the craziest thing i've read today....i have 4 kids ages 13 (twins) to 21...i have stayed home with them from the beginning. going shopping wasn't always fun and games for me but my kids behaved and when they didn't we left the store. seriously, you support some crazy scheme of only being able to take in 1 kid per parent??? i'm just going to stop right here now because your belief is totally insane and not worth more of my time.
