Some customers suck more than others...

The consensus today seems to be that if you argue enough, you will get your way. Thankfully, the customer is NOT always right; in fact the customer is seldom right in such instances.

I have had my stints in retail before in my life, and I do not care to return to those days. Even worse is working in a sales environment, where you are expected to kiss the ass of every customer who walks in the door. I also dislike being a customer in such environments, the sales staff always seems less helpful and more pressuring than in non sales driven environments.

When I walk in to a store of any type, I WANT to be served by an apathetic sonofabitch just like myself; because they get straight to the point, answer questions quickly and directly, and they don't waste any more of anyone's time than is needed. And if they are like me, they will continue that no-bullshit attitude right in to the resolution of any valid concerns that might arise. I call that efficiency, and that is how I want to be served when I go somewhere. Of course, the efficiency of this system is also dependant on my capacity as a customer to not ask such idiotic questions as described in this and last weeks comics, and to understand the meaning of that mysterious word, "no", of which so many people seem to lack comprehension.

The vast majority of us have worked retail at some point, yet there always seems to be moron customers who apparently have had a memory lapse during that time of their lives. Oh how I wish I could look up a person's employment history at will, when I see someone being so ignorant and disrespectful.

It really did turn in to a "rant" today.

I like today's comic, and I personally believe it is one of the better stories we have ever had here on FARTS.

One of these days I will have to convince Alex to make a comic out of one of my driving stories, and then there truly will be a rant to behold in this space.
