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.
