We’ve all been there – dealing with an unruly and ridiculous customer. Maybe it was with your first retail job, or perhaps you endure complaints at your current position. Either way, you’ve probably had an earful of the dreaded “Karens” of the world. It is not a good day when you hear, “Can I speak to your manager?” That goes double when it’s something ridiculous, and you know the customer is wrong.
You can find some comfort in knowing that you’re not alone. True, most of us have had to deal with customers like this at one point in our lives. Keep reading to read Reddit users, and others share the worst customer complaints. Most of these complaints from around the world are beyond crazy.
20. You Can’t Please Everyone
“I worked in a liquor store that was right next to a retirement home. The owner stocked some basic groceries because he was trying to be nice. He obviously made very little from the sales of eggs and bread. On a regular basis, the tenants of the retirement home would complain that the grocery selection was terrible. It was a liquor store; what the heck did they expect?” asked Reddit user string97bean. While it’s nice the owner took an extra step for senior citizens in the neighborhood, perhaps it would have been better to stick to liquor.
One mistake this owner made was calling it a “grocery” section. If it was positioned as a convenience store, he might not have had as many complaints. Hopefully, more seniors were happy he provided food because it is a nice gesture. Not only is he saving them money from a further trip, but he was also saving them time. It’s too bad there are some bad apples in the bunch.
