If you’ve ever worked retail then we’re sure you’ve dealt with customers like the ones below. Here is how I don’t want you to respond with when I ask you how you are:
1) Throw money at me and point at your car. (It’s okay, use your words.)
2) I’m on my period, so how do you think I feel? (Is there even a correct response here?, ex. Midol is in the 2nd aisle?)
3) (A guy who has always limped everyday that I have seen him for the last 5-6 months) Just great you f*ckin’ idiot I’m limping.
4) Okay but kinda horny and my wife is outta town. (I was rendered speechless, this made me uncomfortable for a multitude of reasons.)
5) Can’t you see I’m on the phone…? (Complete with a dirty look. If you come in on the phone expect to have to pause for a second you idiot. Or better yet hang up the phone.)
6) Bored… ( Do you want me to perform a trick for you or something?)
7) Great doin’ just great. (With an attitude like I inconvenienced you by saying something.)
8) Yawn at me then say nothing and stare at me like a deer in headlights. (Am I boring you people?)
9) Grunt at me. (Like a caveman to acknowledge you heard something but don’t care what I said.)
10) Well I’m still alive. (Are you expecting death in your immediate future?)
