When the waiter singles you out for death, everyone else on the waitstaff does their best to avoid you. Dead men don't tip.
These hilarious moments will resonate with anyone who works in the restaurant industry. Restaurant workers are some of the most underappreciated, underpaid, and overworked people in any industry. If you are one of these people, oh bringers of the late night munchy snacks and ridiculous drunken pizza orders, we salute you. And just for you we have a bunch of memes to help you survive the late shift with a smile.
Sometimes there are memes that go beyond the realm of taste and must be hidden away for a special day. And we have just one such list of memes prepared for your entertainment. And if that isn't enough, we have a list of work memes especially apropos to helping to explain the highlights, and new lows that the work week brings us.
The sad thing is that this is already 10 minutes into the conversation according to the caller:
This recording picks up roughly 10 minutes into the call, whereby my wife and I have already played along and given a myriad of reasons and explanations as to why we are canceling (which is why I simply stopped answering the rep's repeated question -- it was clear the only sufficient answer was "Okay, please don't disconnect our service after all.").
Imagine this: you're a student looking for some specific edition of a no doubt ridiculously overpriced textbook, and you think you found what you need on Amazon. You order it, relieved that you don't have to go to your school's bookstore and provide your firstborn as payment. Only when you get the book, it's the wrong edition. You contact Amazon to track down the right edition, and after a few days they tell you they don't have it and to return the book for a full refund.
That's exactly what happened to Pedro in Ireland. Frustrated with his experience, Pedro left a negative review in a customer satisfaction survey, only to later find an enormous schlong, "The Hulk 10.25-inch Huge Dong Black," in his shopping cart ready to offend any delicate sensibilities: "I was at the office, in an open space, with people behind me. A guy and two girls were sitting by me when I opened up Amazon and they saw the contents of my shopping basket." Well, maybe your coworkers should learn not to look at other peoples' monitors, Pedro.
Pedro contacted customer support, and though they wouldn't confirm an Amazon representative had placed the item in his cart, they issued him a €100 credit and an apology, saying they would work with HR to make sure this didn't happen again.
Pedro stands by his actions, believing that any bad customer service should be reported, and that "the entry for "The Hulk" is completely misleading. I would expect something called "The Hulk" to be green. It's picture is pink and the description says it is black. My whole issue with Amazon.de started because of incorrect description of items -- and this entry does not help their case."
