mood: irritated

I woke up with one of those feel like vomiting migraines and really thought about calling in sick. However decided to get my ass to work.
I regret that decision.

Here what happened.

I had 5 mins left in my shift and was trying to clean up quickly. I was completely out of breath. Trying to get yet another 3-teir blue cart off the floor, and this guy runs up from behind me and says 'excuse me.' So I turn and say: 'do you need any help?" He says he needs someone to help him in at the washers. So I do the normally okay thing and explain that i don't work in that section. He demands I page someone to help him. So I tell him I don't know how to page. And since Jane was right there I said she would be able to page. He looks at me and says: "I don't understand what you're saying."  So I turn from him to go over to Jane and ask her, and what do I do, oh yes it's so shocking... I exhale because I'm exhausted. And as I'm approaching Jane and start to say: 'Jane could you--" He comes up behind me and yells: "Excuse me? How dare you 'Ugh' me?! Am I that wrong in amusing that as a customer in this store that I deserve some respect?! I'm a  medical Doctor I deserve more Respect!" I'm standing there holding back tears saying: 'i'm sorry.' over and over again. Until he shuts up, and then I turn to Jane and ask if she can page someone to major home for me.

Oh I got away from there as soon as I could.

I told my mom about it. Cried. Ranted a little on FB about. Got 2 great responses, one from a former co-worker who said if she had been in a store where a customer was yelling aty an employee she'd have ripped him to him. And another from my Cousin who really did say the best thing: "An asshole is an asshole no matter how much education he has"

So I decided to put it in the past, forget about it and move on.

So naturally today I get called to Kim's office and oh guess what? He filed a complaint against me.
In the complaint he said: "That I made eye contact with him and he said 'excuse me' and that I kept on walking."

That never happened.

I was grabbing the blue cart and he RAN up behind me.
That's the first time i heard him say "excuse me"

Kim also said he said he was walking through housewares when we made this eye contact. Considering I wasn't that far into housewares to begin with there is no possible way he was just causally walking thru housewares when we made eye contact and ran away from him.... *ahem*

All I can say is, if he was my doctor I'd feel like shit 24/7. I mean just from that one meeting, I seriously felt so great about myself, that maybe just maybe even thought about killing myself.  And I get the complaint against me? Fuck You.

Told a couple ppl at work about this thing today. Cried again. Geez. Haven't felt this great about myself since being bullied in school. And well In #animeost irc chan thanks to the British Bitch.

So yeah, nice, quiet Krista has a customer complaint against her. Yay me!

I don't think I did anything wrong either. I mean unless breathing isn't allowed anymore. And as a Doctor you would think Asshole would know one needs to breathe. But maybe that was taught in Asshole school.

I understand that....
even though no one ever complaint about me when I worked in a clothes shop
but there's assholes in every corner...

I've met a jerk... I just told her that no ice cream are allowed and she told me that "do you expect me to leave my mum outside alone?"
I was like WTF! Still pissed off whenever I thought about it...

Be strong!!

I suppose you got the load of crap about customer is always right :[
Guess Jane was of no help or willing to back up your side.

I've learned that these days, if you are not well, it is better off take it easy on yourself and take a sickie.

I totally agree with the comment your cousin made.
These people will never learn as they are selfish and never thinks of others but themselves.

What kind of doctor is he if he cannot even tell that someone is exhausted and not feeling well from their appearance?

Just forget about that person and don't make him make you feel sad and cry =( *huggles*

friends hate assholes

I hate when people have a sense of entitlement like that. And people who assume that every employee is an expert about everything in the store.

Try not to let Mr Grumpypants get you you. *hugs*

DC ☆ Heiji - No you did not just...

This "the customer is always right" sucks so badly -_-

I once got into trouble where I worked because apparently I SIGHED at the client. Perhaps I did, I do it all the time without noticing, but to assume I had ill intentions is just sick.

I hope you'll never see that guy again and that you won't get into further trouble! *hugs*
