Accurate post is accurate.

Reminds me of the time a lady told me whip doesn’t melt. Or a guy yelled at me for not understanding him/hearing him because he kept talking on the phone

Lame

For those in retail.

I worked in a Lil Caesars and a woman came in and wanted a sausage pizza with no sausage, but got mad when she was given a cheese pizza.

So when I worked at fitting room in Old Navy, a woman told me that a medium top was too small, and that the large top was too large. So she asked me to find her an “x-medium”. Old Navy carries x-small, small, medium, large, x-large, 1x, 2x and 3x. There is no “x-medium”. But she insisted, so I went and found her an “x-medium” (which was just a medium in a different color but the same top, same make, same EVERYTHING) and she goes very happily, “THIS! THIS FITS ME PERFECTLY! THANK YOU SO MUCH! See, you can do anything you can set your mind to!”

I’m a waitress at a big fancy resort, and once a woman asked me for a diet water and when I told her there was no such thing she demanded to see my manager (who then also promptly told her there was no such thing and brought her regular water).Another occasion of stupidity occurred when a woman had been brought a steak cooked too much for her liking. I offered to take it back and bring her out a new one, cooked a little less, and she said “NO this one’s fine I just want you to cook THIS one a little less.” I then had to get the chef and have him explain why you can’t UNCOOK a steak.

When I was working at dunkin donuts there was this woman in the drive-thru who asked for a lightly toasted croissant and then started complaining that the croissant was warm. And wanted her money back, so she gave me the croissant back and I gave her the money and then she tells me “now i want my new croissant” she wanted a new one for free and as she was screaming at me this guy in a biker gang covered in tattoos leans over the counter in the store and yells “ma’am let me just tell you what we’re all thinking. fuck off, you stupid ****.” I couldn’t stop laughing and she drove away in anger.

Most of the people like in the stories above know that they’re being totally irrational, but also know that if they complain enough they’ll most likely get something free or discounted. So really most of the the nonsensical fucks are actually just cheap fucks with no shame or respect for people.

That last bit of commentary though.

Sadly, we’re also actively training people to behave this way - if you ask nicely for mistakes to be rectified, often you’ll get shafted. I worked in the restaurant industry for years. At one particular restaurants, the cookstaff were less than qualified. I had a table whose steak was cooked wrong twice - first too rare, then the kitchen got pissed it was sent back and purposefully over-cooked it. There was no time to cook it a third time, so I comped their steak and offered free dessert (which they didn’t take because they were full, but they were very appreciative). Later, my manager expressed her extreme displeasure with my actions, because the customer hadn’t complained. The idea was, they didn’t complain, so don’t give them shit (even though the issue was entirely our kitchen’s fault!).
Meanwhile, that same night (I worked in a resort town, so incidents were frequent), a man threw a fit because the mahi mahi (a subtropical fish) he ordered tasted “fishy”. At first I didn’t understand, because I haven’t eaten meat since childhood, but he said that fresh fish doesn’t taste fishy, and accused us of freezing the fish… 
For context, I was working in the more Northern portion of the Canadian prairies - about 2,000 miles / 3,150 km from the nearest subtropical fishing site. He expected fresh sub-tropical fish. I explained that it was impossible to offer him mahi mahi that had not been frozen given our location, and offered him some local varieties that I knew to be fresher. He refused, threw a huuuuuge fit, and I had to get the manager. She ended up comping their entire meals.
So then, I have to wonder at the industry’s decisions. When people behave appropriately, we take advantage of their good behaviour. When people are irrational and rude, we bend over backwards for them. A logical person would eventually learn that it behooves them to throw public temper tantrums. 
TLDR: I blame the restaurant/customer service industry for reinforcing bad behaviour, and sometimes requiring people to act that way to get the treatment they deserve. 
After all, these owners/managers/industry people are the ones treating customer service representatives as disposable, interchangeable parts.

This stinker is the reason I’m scared of water in video games.

O.O

I am super paranoid of water/underwater levels

Though for me it’s because of that damn countdown in the original Sonic the Hedgehog games whenever you start to run out of air…

Ditto that. A graphic representation of drowning is sure to impact any kid.
