Sunny Side of the Two-way Street

Filed under:Misc,That's Ridiculous!!! — posted by JAWjaw on 10/3/2005 @ 10:53 pm

Recently I saw some articles concerning the subject of how dealing with persons who are less than gracious can jade even the most enthusiastic service personnel. And of course, there are articles on how if a person is not prepared to deal with ungrateful patrons then they should not be in the industry. Let’s be realistic, we have all had and heard horror stories on both sides of the topic. The thing to me is when is someone being unreasonable in a situation. What has happened to common sense and consideration for fellow human beings?

Out of curiosity, I was wondering what are some of the more ridiculous customer requests other people have seen or heard? And what ridiculous reactions to customer obnoxiousness by a service person have other people heard or seen?

In example, this weekend a customer at a drinking establishment that doesn’t charge a cover for live entertainment and, because it doesn’t have a running kitchen and understands that some people get the munchies when they are drinking, allows patrons to bring in their own snacks. (Not exactly what I would call an unreasonable place.) This particular customer bought one drink, pulled out his own snack, and then expected the drinking establishment to cover the cost of a disposable container in which to place the snack. If a person is going to bring their own eats somewhere, isn’t that person responsible for providing their own accompanying necessities (such as tableware, napkins, etc.)?

I’m watching the eclipse on webcast, unbelievable. This is the first time I’ve seen such a thing on the web! While I watched the total eclipse, the moon actually had a bluish hue to it. It just blows my mind knowing that I am actually watching our living universe as it happens.

As they say, “Music soothes the savage beast.” In this case, it may even be the beast within. There are many uses for music and the surgical DJ may have found one way to take sounds to another level.
