The customer is NOT always right!!

Twoman-- We have worked a combined total of 63 years in the retail business, and in all those years very few times have the customers been right. As a female working in a male dominated world of hardware I get very little respect for my knowledge on a daily basis. A man insisted on me getting another manager for him to make a key. The only problem was, I was the only one working who knew how to run the key machine! Sometimes people can be so ignorant! The other manager, who was a man , could only laugh when the customer left key less because he would not have a key made by a woman.

Vman-- I had a customer that wandered up and down the the can food isle, I had asked a number of times if I could be of assistance. Finely this customer approached me very upset, and stated that "I have been up and down this F-----G isle and I cant find the tampon's any where".... I had to search deep with in myself, not to ask her how it felt to go through life completely stupid. Instead I just pointed her in the right direction.

I've never worked in retail, but having been a waitress off and on through the years, I can identify. I actually had a woman send back a chef's salad because "the olives were not ripe".

She and countless others have won a warm and fuzzy place in my heart ;o)
