Dirtbag Customer Tries Returning Painting After 4 Months

It starts with this old client trying to dispute a cleared charge on an item they bought 4 months previously, lying about it, admitting it, then holding the transaction hostage. Where do such kind customers get it in their heads that this is the right thing to do? Who are these entitled people with their absurd audacity? It just never stops.

People's "I Don't Get Paid Enough for This" Moments

At some unfortunate jobs, your boss doesn't pay attention to your job description, and will make you do whatever you're willing to do. At other jobs, you're basically a punching bag for mindless customers.

The Weirdest Things Drive-Thru Employees Saw

Cars are a strange semi-private space, and they give people an extra sense of security to be weird. That makes it harder to work a drive-thru job where you spend all day leering into people's cars. Some customers are even looking to freak employees out, which has gotta make work a little rough. For more customer service stuff, here are weird things Walmart employees witnessed and some totally mindless things said by credit card customers.

The life of a barista is a weird one. When every customer you have is someone who hasn't had their first coffee of the day, there's no knowing what kind of people can lumber in.

Customer's Translation Fail Results In Begging Bartender For Nothing

Translation fails inspire all kinds of hilarious confusion between two perfectly rational human beings. In this case, we have a customer unknowingly repeatedly pleading for nothing at all.
