Am I the only person noticing that these things are being reposted several days later?

I got it right on the first try.

Not only was it a perfectly valid complaint but it's clear that the responder didn't even bother to understand the original post. It said right there at the beginning that he showed up before 9.

And the problem is? It's that much less money for them that month.

My memory is a little vague on this one as it happened over a decade ago. I was dealing with a customer who was a complete dumbass. They kept doing something wrong over and over again. For the life of me, I cannot remember what it was. Behind this woman was a 14 year old boy. Anyways, the customer starts yelling at me about her own mistake and then out of nowhere, I see the boy doing the hand to chest gesture symbolizing retardation. It took every ounce of my self control not to do anything more than smirk which the customer thankfully didn't see. After she was gone, I rang up his stuff which came to about $10-$14. I paid for it myself and told him that he was my new best friend.

A gigantic facepalm from the equating of gay people and guns to the general douchery of the response. When I see responses like that, I generally wonder if the responder actually feels like they're superior to the OP.

You have a massive history of posts. This one was shared a mere few months ago.

At least this one is from a few weeks ago. Some reposts happen a week later.

That's a slogan. Not a company name.

Wow. Harsh.

While I don't doubt that they'll become a subject of mockery, the legacy bit is a wild overreach. I had a jerk for a manager. His legacy will be his children and the life he lives. I sincerely doubt anyone will give a damn about how he treated employees come the end of this year. :P

Another ridiculous example. A perfectly valid complaint.

Yeah. I highly doubt that this was intended as a wheelchair ramp.

I had a bit of a gem happen a few days ago. I was stocking a shipment of ice cream and breaking down the boxes into a grocery cart. While I'm stocking the ice cream, I hear the boxes moving around behind me. I turn around and find this older lady going through the boxes. I unintentionally stare at her for like 10 seconds. Thoroughly shocked that she wasn't even going to say anything. She ends up noticing me staring at her and simply says that she needs some boxes for moving. I don't know about most of you but I think it's basic common sense that ice cream doesn't exactly come in huge boxes. Most of them wind up getting ripped apart or come semi-wrapped in plastic. Anyways, after I acknowledge that she needs the boxes with a simple 'ok', she grabs one box and walks away. On her way out, she casually mentions that she works in the store. I couldn't possibly have cared less if she was Ivanka Trump.

I fielded no less than 40 phone calls last night asking for the glasses. The only thing is that I work the overnight shift in a grocery store. People were calling a grocery store after midnight to find out if we had any glasses in stock.

I'm assuming from what I can see inside of the shop that it is a candy shop. If that's the case, that is expert planning.

Barring awful behavior on the part of the customer, the real losers seem to be the employees.

I won't lie. I had this happen to me once as a customer with a new laptop. It was about four months later when I realized that there was a protective film over the screen. It didn't impede my ability to use the laptop. It was more of just a 'huh' moment.

Let's be honest here. Who the hell cares if they're choosing a bigger table due to a desire not to appear gay? I'd only be upset if some other customer was being inconvenienced. I'd be fascinated to see that lesson though. "Remember, Timmy! There's nothing wrong with two men being physically close to each other! Be sure to remember that!" "But mommy! Why should it matter if I don't want to sit so close to someone else?" "Well someone might think you're homophobic, Timmy! And we wouldn't want that because, as we all know, the perceptions of others are more important than you feeling comfortable!" This homophobia (and I laugh as I call it that) hurts absolutely nobody. Personally, I absolutely hate being in close quarters with anyone and would absolutely ask for a larger table if one were available. Such a shame. I guess people will think I'm homophobic.

The worst bagged order I ever received was in a Wal-Mart. The cashier put four cans of soup into one plastic bag. They were in two stacks of two. She then put my bag of grapes right next to the cans. I didn't see it until I got out to my car. I still struggle to figure out how anyone could be that dumb/naive. Double sacking paper bags was such a joy for me when I first started in a grocery store. Took me a week before I was able to instinctively fill the bags without putting massive scratch marks on my arm.

Was there ever a follow up to this post?

^ I like that. I was going to chime in with super glue.

Generally unrelated but I feel a need to share this. Just a week or so ago, I had a customer come up with a banana peel and ask me to charge him for one banana. I charged him 12 cents. I didn't really think anything about the 12 cents at the time. Seemed like a good, low price for a banana. Then a manager (much later) pointed out that bananas are like 59 cents a pound and that I drastically overcharged him for one banana. Though I felt oddly good about that.

This isn't sexism. No one is trying to discriminate against someone. They simply prefer a male when they buy their magazines. Admittedly their awkwardness is hilarious but nothing to insult them over. Some people are simply awkward in some situations. Personally, I have a real hard time making eye contact with people and maintaining eye contact. And that's in any situation. This story would've been pretty funny if not for the need to insult people for being human.
