    This place seems to be a great source of "other" (not as many IT) WTFs: The Customer Is Not Always Right
    This was the only thread I could find and it can't be replied to. So let's fix that: any discussion related to the content of that site can now be posted here. Most of you probably already knew this existed, but I'm sure there are a couple of strange people like me that didn't.

    That is all.


    Filed Under: I Must Be New Here...

    I Must Be New Here...

    Yes.



  • Here's a good one I emoji-fied.

    (I work in a brand-name :uk: clothing store. The brand is :uk:, but as an artistic choice most of the clothing has :jp: text and the word ‘:jp:’ in the logo, so it is common for a lot of customers to think the brand is :jp: . I am :cn: but I was born and raised in the :uk:.)

    Customer #1: *to [Customer #2]:* “Why are we in this stupid store?”
    Customer #2: “Because I like it! And I like supporting :uk: companies.”
    Customer #1: “You’re so stupid! This is a :jp: company! All you’re doing is supporting the :jp: !”
    Me: “Sorry to interrupt, madam, but I couldn’t help overhearing. [Store] is actually a :uk:
    company. The :jp: element is just an artistic choice. Not only that, but all our clothes are made in the :uk: as well.”
    Customer #1: “You’re just saying that because you’re :jp:! You just want to send our money back to :jp:
    Me: “I was actually born here, madam, and not that it matters, but my ethnicity is :cn:, not :jp: .”
    Customer #1: “Same thing!”
    Customer #2: “Oh, my God! You can’t say that!”
    Customer #1: “Sure I can.”
    Me: “Madam, I couldn’t help but notice that you are carrying some [Other Brand Clothing Store] shopping bags.”
    Customer #1: “So?”
    Me: “That is an :us: brand. I am sure the :us: appreciates your support.”
    Customer #1: “Whatever!”
    Customer #2: “Oh, shut up, [Customer #1]! And besides, you’re :de:Polish !”

    Needs more emoji.



  • If I emoji-fied more the Poland-is-Germany punchline would have come to soon. :giggity:


  • Winner of the 2016 Presidential Election

    Well you should've at least emojified the people



  • That sounds like work. And you can go Belgium yourself for that suggestion.



  • What a pack of fucking nanny state SJW busybodies.

    :baby: I WANNA BUY GUN!
    :man: Okay. As is the law, here's some paperwork to fill out, otherwise you'll get in trouble and we'll get heavily fined
    :baby: NO PAPERWORK I WANNA GUN NOW!
    :man: Sorry, but without the right ID we can't sell it to you. You can get in trouble, and we can get heavily fined.
    :baby: OTHER CLERK I WANNA BUY GUN LOOK TOTALLY RIGHT PAPERWORK
    :boy: Okay, if this is the right paperwork...
    :man: Whoa, you just told me you didn't have the right paperwork. Even if I could bend the rules for you, I won't now because you're being a douchenozzle and lying to my employees. You trouble, us fined.
    :baby: FINE I GO LIE TO OTHER STORE AND BUY GUN U FAG!
    :man: :phone: Hey, Barry? I'm sure you don't want to get heavily fined-- plus we both hate douchenozzles, so...

    You can literally replace "gun" with any other item that requires paperwork, and the story is still :thumbsup:



  • You're a bleeding heart nanny state SJW trying to infringe my constitutional right to be a massive douchenozzle.



  • @flabdablet said:

    You're appropriating douchenozzle culture. There were douchnozzles Aboriginals before Christopher Columbus sailed to California to rape them for their gold.

  • Treating other people like dirt is every New Yorker's God-given right!



  • The "This Is Why We're In A Recession" series is particularly disturbing. For example:

    Customer: “Well, like I said, I don’t understand this. I spent all the money on my credit card and I cut it up. WHY DID I RECEIVE A BILL FOR IT?!”

    There's quite a few stories like that in the "Why we're in a recession" chain (this was part 40). I've heard of it before, once; someone I knew spent a whole evening explaining to a student, how bank accounts worked and that there wasn't necessarily money to spend just because there were check blanks in the checkbook.



  • This site is meh.

    There are no comments. Also, the way stories are told remind me of the front page: somehow too mellow and "produced". For a better experience, there is the unfiltered feed: http://notalwaysright.com/category/unfiltered

    There's, however, a much better alternative: http://clientsfromhell.net/

    Sorry, that site has one of those overlay popups that covers the page while I'm in the middle of reading, so I can never visit the site again.

    Yeah, the guy who maintains it is one of these Patrick McKenzie followers, who are all about getting you onto their mailing list, so they can try to sell you their crappy products.

    I think there should be a checkbox to disable it completely. Dunno, I mostly follow it through RSS feed.

    My biggest beef with NotAlwaysRight is how obviously fake a lot of the stories are.

    "I was in line behind this guy and [ten paragraphs later] as he yelled at the cashier I calmly said two words that shut him up and everyone behind me applauded and the cashier gave me my order free and asked me on a date and now we're married"

    There is. It's called GreaseMonkey.

    You might think I'm lying, but that's exactly what happened to me the other day, with the only difference, that the cashier was hot as hell, I think she's miss universe or something.



  • No BJ?

    Thought about mentioning it, but then o realized I might be appropriating and we wouldn't want that, would we?

    @Luhmann said:

    Ok, ok, BJ was. I'll send a picture when I get back home.

  • Discourse touched me in a no-no place

    This reminded me of a coworker at a previous job, who was the spitting image of Hagrid from the Harry Potter books.

    Seriously, the guy was like 6'6", weighed over 300lb, had longish, shaggy/curly black hair and a full beard going salt and pepper.

    He told me one day he was in the mall when a little girl about 4 or 5 ran up to him, threw her arms around his legs, and yelled "I LOVE YOU, HAGRID!"
