I don't care about the real reason...to me it is the tiniest Speaker's Corne.

I need to make such a display in my office, too -for my hopes and dreams.

Ahem...this is such hard, demanding work that I really feel uncomfortable to read about it as "playing a game". Just because it looks effortless (much like ballett) doesn't mean it's not exhausting. I know, the headline surely just wants to admire how satisfying this actually looks- but too often I heard people talk about dedicated workers without getting the effort behind the neat looks. (Damn it, I lost my train of thought sonewhere...)

You did great- but I'd like that customer's ass whipped! What an asshole!

"Here" not "herr". Thank you, autocorrect!

I'm totally with Sgtpsycho herr! And for "friends": Due to an endangered pregnancy I had to lie for 3 month- a friend cleaned our house once a week and I was (am stil!) so happy and thankful. I can not believe this bad behaviour - of course you pay the full price, of course you tell them how thankful you are!( I still felt like apologizing- I'm on the couch and she doing all the work!) Can't believe you did what you did--- you're far too nice (and should have cared more about your health)

"Dream job" for me includes good treatment (appreciation, nice coworkers etc). I am currently working under conditions I never would have thought possible: Great working field, nice coworkers (well, it feels more like the most awesome crazy buddies you'll ever meet), supervisors you can put your trust in....one year in heaven! BUT: I was told I will be relocated in the next 3 month. I am working in public service so I won't have to fear unemployment but damn, I will miss this bunch of crazies and the great job.

If water is too tough for you, you can switch to Bud Light. Reminds me of this: -Why is American beer like making love in a canoe? ... ... -They're both f*cking close to water!

This was SO satisfying to read! I am sorry you had to go through all this shit (and reading your encounter with this asshole and your reaction was already gold- I guess I would not been that good, so you are my hero!)--- but my, the outcome was perfect and I am very happy for it! Thank you so much for sharing- this is like balm for every scarred retail slave. Love it so much!

Kudos for being able to smile through this. I swear, just reading custy's bullshit let my face drop waaaaaay down. (Also: Great manager! And I truely hope this was an once-in-a-lifetime encounter)

Well, I would not call it "piss poor planning" because everything might happen that causes you to take a plane-- but I don't get her "Your website was down so poor me had to PHONE, what an inconvenience!"- attitude. Yes, custy, you live in a time and age where you can immediately get a flight simply by calling someone. Isn’t that wonderful? Why not be THANKFUL? Next time don't wait an hour for the website when you just can call someone! Why not "Hooray, customer service saved the day because we were able to get a flight even though the website was down!" You got the flight, stop complaining-.-

Because bears are the worst mosquitos in the world! I am still laughing. @Neverdie: Reading is waaaay overrated in a Custy's World!

Nice twist but in my heart I hoped for: After all the research we found out what an awesome worker you are and give you a raise!

I am so very sorry for your loss. And you are far too kind to this "lady". Even without knowing your personal tragedy it was a hell of a nasty, rude & disgusting thing to say! Again, I wish you all the best!

Am I the only one loving it? I'd laugh like hell if I'd come back from my vacation to see this. Especially love the "You've been gone so long that you're keyboard grew some grass"- vibe. Wish my coworkers surprised me like that!

As the good person I am I would totally agree to help him get rid of this phone and give him the actual price for a used Iphone 4. So if you have his contact informations....*nudge, nudge*

I am totally with Lightning. This kind of shitty behaviour doesn't need kindness.

I would have to drive by... Can't tell me not to laugh without making me...yeah, you already know.

Why would someone want to be a cockroach? Let's ask a doctor... "And how do we begin to covet, Clarice? Do we seek out things to covet? We begin by coveting what we see every day. " Gee, thanks, but my name is not Clarice and could you please stop licking my fingers..that's disturbing and...aaaaaaaaarg!
