Bad Consumer, No Doughnut!

If you've ever worked in retail, then you know just how terrible some customers are. Fortunately, if you want to feel better about your own experiences, there's now a great Reddit thread filled with venting retail workers, some of whom have the worst stories I've ever heard, like this one:
Yesterday while I was helping out in Best Buy, a woman approached me with a pink plastic phone case asking how many txt messages it could store in an inbox....

I said she needed to have a cell phone for that. She clearly did not understand.

After about 10 minutes of trying to explain that the case was solely for style/protective purposes, I sent her over to the phone department and let them deal with her for the next HOUR.

Working at Guitar Center, I have a few terrible stories of my own. What about you guys? Feel free to share them in the comments.

ick, i worked at Guitar Center many years ago too! i'm sure i've got a few customer stories, and i'll have to think back on that. but the most frustrating part of working there was the company itself! they always figured out a way to screw me or my department out of bonuses, even when i sold $20,000 worth of gear in one day...i never saw a single cent from that!

Try working at Trader Joes. Mostly wineos shop at Trader Joes because that's were the cheap wine is. They come in all drunk and you know they drove to the store. Jesus people suck. Retail and fast food you really see it.
