I hate when customers are rude to customer service people. I also hate when customer service people are rude to customers! Why is being polite so hard? Last night, for example, I went to dinner with my friend.

During the process of the dinner the waiter first assumed that my friend couldn't read--just because she's in a wheelchair and deaf. I should mention, this is while she had her phone on the table, which clearly has text on the screen.

Then he kept telling her that the food would get cold cause she wasn't eating fast enough. Her reply was just "okay, thank you"--again and again. Then when she was done eating, he stood there, waiting for her to finish all the food on her plate. It's not like she only ate 1/3 and he was expecting her to request to take the rest home--there were literally a few bites left, and even though she politely said she's so full she can't eat anymore, he still stood there. "Thank you, I'm fine." Basically my friend was super polite about it all. In fact, we were trying not to laugh cause we just couldn't believe what was actually happening.

Seriously, customer service people. I'm sorry if you had a bad day or whatever. But if you can't put it in a box and leave it at home, then customer service isn't for you. And if you can't handle the fact that you are going to have a wide variety of customers, and that you still have to treat them equally as customers, then customer service isn't for you. If it's hard to be cheerful or whatever, fine, I can understand that. But there's a basic level of "don't be completely rude" that you should be expected to adhere to--especially when your customers are being polite to you.

Sounds like someone I know. He is rude to wait staff 95% of the time because he thinks he's better than they are. Um, how? He has an arts degree from a rinkydink college based in his home state Bumfuq Square State U., his grandparents pay his rent as they harp on him to get a job. Oh yeah, he's an alcoholic and shares with 2 men (3 total) in a 750 sq. foot apartment (all rent). I see right through his rudeness to wait staff. Reason: He's miserable and knows he could be in their exact position of waiting tables.

Here's the quasi-profound morsel of the day: For people who don't have politeness naturally in them, politeness is hard work! But for those who have it naturally in them, it's pretty much effortless.

LOL! Your list is good. Except the milk. I love milk, but it has to be whole milk from braums. And margerine is just unsightly.

And never EVER nuke anything with tuna in it at WORK!!! ha ha. I did that once.

Good ones, 20yiB.

Mine is those weird super thin eyebrows that are 99% penciled in, wow, freaky. Especially on those guido's.

Speaking of which, (I'm on a roll here), those oompa loompa looking kids with the fake orange tans, pencil thin eyebrows and pursed lips.
