Anyone who has a job or has EVER had a job... whether you loved or hated it... knows that customers/ clients, have a way of ruining your day. Maybe they mean to, maybe they don't, but it happens... and it happens frequently. If you're lucky, you're job doesn't require you to deal with the public directly, but if you're not- so- lucky, there is, inevitably, a list of things you can count on day- to- day that will drive you nuts. With that in mind, we have a list of '8 Things We Do That Servers Hate' and a list of '7 Ways to Annoy a Flight Attendant'. We picked these because these jobs are all about dealing with the public. Whatever your job is, we wanted to know: WHEN IT COMES TO YOUR JOB, WHAT CAN YOU GUARENTEE CUSTOMERS WILL DO TO PISS YOU OFF?
Cook: When people don't stick to the menu
Pharmacist: when people wait until the last minute to call in a prescription
Cop: people who put their hands up instantly and say "I didn't do it!" I would think as a cop you'd just kinda hate everyone.
Works at a call center: can't stand people who ask "why is there a late charge?"
Mailman: every day he's asked, "what's in the package?" If they know, they're a criminal.
Barista: being asked, "how big is the 16 ounce?" WTF?!? 16 fluid ounces is 16 fluid ounces. Always. You can tell when they call it '16 ounces'.
Hockey ref: people complain about every call he makes. Comes with the territory. No one ever believes that their team could possibly be guilty of an infraction. Must be a conspiracy! Come on.
Drives a recycling truck: hates people who won't just put their recycling IN the can provided
Lots more answers, but it really turned into a bitch- fest... which is fine, but I'm looking for some levity here.
SIT AND SPIN
Yea, I'm getting (have gotten?) old, but when Jolene told us that she was bringing is Baby metal, I assumed she meant that Rock-a-by-Baby stuff that's all the rage; songs from Metallica, Tool, Megadeth, etc. played on a xylophone or whatever. I was wrong. Turns out that Baby Metal is an actual f**king band. It's a three- piece chic band from Japan. Had no idea. Here's a link:
