Being considerate would require them to think about something other than their own needs! What kind of radical idea is this you're trying to spread? :)

What happened to using your brains? Oh right, the customer never had any in the first place.

The man needs to go back on his meds and quick.

Those are the kind of people that soured me on religion. I'm now theistic but highly anti-religious. For scumbags like that, I adopt a different version of the Golden Rule: do one to others before they do one to you.

H'mmm. Remind me to move to Belfast. What is it about the USA that causes customers to lose all sense of manners?

OH hell yes! I've wanted to say this so often...

Brilliant! Hopefully word gets around and those nutjobs won't bother you again.

At least they spelled "education" correctly...

It's called "being aware of your surroundings"... a lost art among customers these days.

Being tolerant is always the best policy!

Thankfully your regular was there to give Bitch a lesson in sensitivity -- namely, you are not more important than the medical emergency in the store.

The fact that you came in and were willing to try and work was what convinced the bosses to flex the guidelines a little. I've noticed that bosses tend to be more willing to do that for someone who tries to be productive. At least, the good bosses do.

There's always the classic line, "Wow, it looks just like a penis, only a lot smaller!"

Must be a British ad... here in the USA "fag" has a different meaning.

Customers who fake allergies should be banned, IMO. They cost more in time than their order is worth.

My manager likes asking them if they've accepted Satan into their lives and then haranguing them for hours about why it's a good idea to do so. Of course, this is only in off-the-clock situations. At work, we're told to just walk away or at the register, say, "Next customer in line, please!" if being polite fails.

Even if the procedure was only going to take 15 minutes it's STILL a bad idea to park in the fire lane! Why would anyone think that was the least bit okay?

I hate stupid people. especially the ones who, when told we're closed, still try to open the damn door.

Someone who eats fish, but not meat, is a pescetarian. From the dictionary: "Pescetarianism is a dietary choice in which a person, known as a pescetarian, eats any combination of vegetables, fruit, nuts, beans and fish or invertebrate seafood, but will not eat mammals or birds. Some animal products like eggs and dairy may or may not be part of a pescetarian diet plan."

"I wouldn't know, sir. No one I know frequents strip clubs." [said in a tone implying the customer is a sleazy dink for knowing about strip clubs]

What happened to looking up the schedule first?

I give my standard answer when asked about Jesus: "You're badly mispronouncing it, the correct pronunciation is HAY-ZOOS, and I recommend you try looking in Mexico." My bosses have always authorized me to say that.

I agree that it's insane that it's legal to pay restaurant workers sub-minimum wages. The minimum pay for all workers, including restaurant workers, should be $12 an hour. However... Since we have a f*cked-up system, I always tip well because I know the waiter/waitress needs the money.

Brain-dead old people are the bane of many retail workers' [and housekeepers'] existence.
