    My favorite was this like 30 something lady who was trying to change her cake order and refused to let me help her and had me call over a manager.

    Turns out the manager didn't know how to do that but I did because I used to work in the bakery.

    attn ronnie if you wanna use "Fryvolution" or "Burgereoisie" I won't begrudge you it because that's some grade-A historical materialist burger humor and it belongs to the world

    it is the common heritage of mankind

    I've found on average my worst customers at Home Depot will be middle-aged white women with this insane sense of entitlement.
    It's not as bad when I work in electrical, people tend not to second guess you when it comes to that. I know I helped a bunch of people today, but damned if I can remember almost any of them. It's awful how much the horrible customers will stick with you, while the nice people become just background.

    I carefully put together the next order and walk up to the counter and call the number. A man standing just a little ways away from me walks straight up to me, looks down at the order and says

    "That's not what I ordered. I wanted {something completely different]."

    "Oh I'm sorry there must have been a mistake. Take the rest and I'll get your {whatever] right now"

    "I didn't have any of that!"

    ...

    ...

    "Sir what was your number?"

    The man hands me his receipt and low and behold this is not at all his order.

    My best customer-service experiences were when I was a cook in an open kitchen, so my station was like 3 feet away from about 14 seats and I'd interact with customers all the time.

    When you're in your chef whites and whipping through orders and doing fancy dessert things people tend to get... maybe not intimidated, but far less likely to just start spouting off like they actually know something. So I could straight-up tell people that no, no you can't have a low-cal creme brulee, because that is not a thing that exists. Whereas if I was working as a server and explained it to them with exactly the same words they'd never believe I could possibly know what I was talking about cuz he's just some server and damnit lemme talk to your manager who I'm so totally friends with I want my fat-free Hollandaise and I want it now!

    A trap is for fish: when you've got the fish, you can forget the trap. A snare is for rabbits: when you've got the rabbit, you can forget the snare. Words are for meaning: when you've got the meaning, you can forget the words.

    Though, honestly, if I could make a wish to a genie to make all customers do one thing all the time, it would be to actually read the menu.

    Why are you asking me what comes on this burger?

    The entire topping list is right underneath the name.

    It's just as bad anywhere. I swear people lose the ability to read the second they walk in the doors.

    I worked in lumber and building materials, and let me tell you buddy, contractors are absolute scum nine times out of ten.

    I think it was all about control and intimidation. Dude doesn't seem like one for thinking things through.

    The fourth to last panel...whatever else might be said about it, I love Order of the Stick's asides and commentaries about the nature of power. It's not "A sellsword stands in a room surrounded by three great men" riddle, but it's good.

    Today I was paged to the counter and in the 10 seconds it took me to get there the customer ignored me and instead pulled out his phone to make a five-minute phone call. While constantly leering at the female staff member next to me who had her back turned.

    Someone smart is gonna tell me I'm wrong I suspect, but I always understood it as being about most forms of power being kind of imaginary, and dependant on people agreeing that you have power, the sellsword can just as easily kill any (or all) of the men regardless of their wealth or titles.

    That's how I interpreted it as well.

    such a good scene

    A trap is for fish: when you've got the fish, you can forget the trap. A snare is for rabbits: when you've got the rabbit, you can forget the snare. Words are for meaning: when you've got the meaning, you can forget the words.

    ed: also the answer to the riddle is, the sellsword takes all of their money and kills them all (not necessarily in that order)

    Actually I'd argue that in this example the Sellsword obeyed the priest.

    sellsword kills the king and the priest, because the rich dude is the only one who offered any money

    that's what a sellsword is, they are mercenaries

    he wouldn't kill the rich dude because he needs to keep his reputation intact to get more clients

    BAM, riddle solved

    That's why you cut off his face and make a mask after you kill him, to get at it.

    Duh.
