Rules and Pingback here 

I used  to  work in  Customer Services  in a large  supermarket, I had  to deal  with  all sorts of  complaints, difficult  customers, visitors  and  queries… Not  mention  take orders  for  party  food  and  cakes  and  at  Christmas, Turkeys  and  Geese! Easy  one hand  tied  behind your  back  stuff!

Well  you  would  not  believe some of  the  daft  things   we had  to  deal  with. EG : Lady  wearing  Barbour  Jacket  and  headscarf  throws any  empty  egg carton  at  me . ” These  eggs  all cracked  when I  boiled  them ”  she screeched at  me! I  replied  that  eggs  do crack  when  they are boiled occasionally. WRONG!  I will not  bore  you  with  what  happened  next  but in  the  end I gave  her  a refund  and  another  box  of  eggs! I also had  to  smile at  her  and apologise  for  her inconvenience??

Another  day  a woman  came up  to  the  desk  and told  her  husband  had  been in  at  the weekend  and  a cashier  has been  rude  to him. I asked if she had  the receipt so I could  see which cashier  had  served him. …. Imagine  my  delight  when  she handed  me  a bill  for  a Tesco’s … I  smiled  sweetly  and  said  sorry  madam  but  the  incident  did  not happen here.

I got  thing’s  wrong  too, one  evening  we were  checking  the returns  .. ” who  dealt  with  this prepacked  Colli ” the  supervisor  asked, I said  I had. “what  did  you  do  for  the customer ” she  asked  sounding  irritated. I told her  I  had  done  as always  given her  a replacement  and a refund. She  almost  smiled. “Great , they  are  from Marks  and Spencer’s”  we  did  all chuckle !

I  won’t  go on  but  below  is  an Acrostic  Nonet   about  the  time  a man  came in  and  thrust a bunch of  flowers into my  face. ” They  don’t  smell,  they are  seven days  old  and  were guarantied for ten day. ”  … what could I  do  apart  from smile?  Yes  a  refund  and  a new bunch of  flowers!

Acrostic Nonet  Complaint.

Can you  help me  these flowers don’t smell

Only had  them seven days see

My wife’s so disappointed

Please do something for me

Let’s see what  to do

Are  you  happy

If I give

New buds

Thanks!
