"But but but the customer is always right!"boomers are losing it over this vid
Yikes. I've worked at Pizza Hut and Gumby's (RIP Ames location). Usually if you mess up you just move them to the front of the queue and make the pizza right away. It takes what, 10 minutes?So much truth to it.
Awhile back I ordered a takeout pizza from Pizza Hut and I show up and they completely forgot about it. At that point there was an hour wait to get another. I started to get irate/demanding to make up for their error but the manager working there basically had a "**** you I don't make an extra dime whether or whether not I make you happy right now"...to his credit he was right and I just went somewhere else.
I used to sell shoes at Dunhams Sporting Goods. I don't know how many times I went and "looked in the back" and just stood back there and sipped my fountain drink from the food court. "Sorry, couldn't find any of those in a size 14!!"I think the only way you can't find at least parts of that funny is if you've never worked retail before.
100%. I think a fielded a version of every one of these when I was a kid. My favorite is the unanswerable statement... These days it's "It said on the website that it was in the store"... as if A) it couldn't have sold out between now and then, B) no errors ever occur, or C) the staff is hiding it from you?Anyone who has ever worked a minute in retail will appreciate this video.
I had an old co-worker at Hy-Vee when I was in high school reply with the "can I talk to your mother" line when he was asked to go get a manager. I had to walk away so I didn't laugh in front of the customer. The lady walked out, and thankfully for my co-worker, never complained.
