I hear stupid people

Poor Harvey had the Customer From Hell yesterday....

The worst part about being in the service industries is you can't tell the customers what idiots they are to their faces--which is the nice thing about having a blog: you can vent.

Stupid people call us all day long.

Susie (answering the phone): Thank you for calling the Dollar Movies
Customer: Yeah, is this the Dollar Movies?
Reply Susie wrestled back but really really wanted to say: No, this is One Hour Martinizing--would you like to hear about our drycleaning specials?

Customer I listened to your recording and it says the only showtime for American Wedding is 9:30. Are you showing it any other times?
Reply Susie wrestled back but really really wanted to say: Yes, we do have other showtimes, but they're secret, so I can't tell you.

Anyway, this is to make Harvey feel better:

On Friday I went over to our bank to get the change order for the weekend. While I was waiting in line, I was witness to a little divine retribution. The teller at the drive-through was dealing patiently with an increasingly abusive man who could not understand why his expired driver's license was not a valid id for check-cashing purposes. The irate man finally drove off, and the next car up to the window held an off-duty police office...who had heard the entire confrontation and radioed in a report of a motorist driving on an expired license....

Sometimes stupid customers do get their just rewards....
