I worked at a restaurant for years while growing up. Let me tell you it was awesome and amazing money for a young fellow like myself at the time.
There were few times when someone got up and left without paying for their meal or drinks whether it was an accident or just on purpose. Few managers always made me pay for that loss which ranged from $20-60 sometimes. This is aimed at teens and maybe college students who don't know better. This is ILLEGAL a manager can not force you to pay something that a customer consumed without paying.
So if it happens to you just inform them you aren't required to do that.. Most servers in the industry make $2.13 an hour and rely on tips to make a living. It's fucked up to expect someone to pay something that they had no control over. Job description is to serve the customer not supervise them and chase them demanding a payment.
I'm gonna try and make this is short as possible to not sound too much like a whiny bitch, but I never thought buying a $60k car would suck this much.
When taking delivery and spotting all the defects, the delivery rep told me "don't worry they'll fix everything, just take photos of everything and make a service apt though the app". I spotted so many things wrong that the app wouldn't even let me upload all the photos for 1 service appointment. So I made 2. Of course I had to wait over a week(past the window for returning the car) for my 1st apt.
Fast forward to today when I show up 10 mins early for my apt. I check in at a jam packed service center without any room to park. A few mins later I get a call from the service rep telling my apt is not for another 4 days. I say "no, it's today. I'm looking at it right now in the app. You want me to send you a screenshot of it?". He says, "That's weird, okay I'll grab a guy and head over to you".
Turns out my first appointment had been del... keep reading on reddit ➡
“The customer is always right” saying is so terrible that it has created this toxic culture that makes customers think they have the right to be rude and disrespectful to staff. Usually the customer is not right so IDK why this saying is still a thing. Also I’m sick and tired of being treated like a lesser human because some people use this saying as an excuse for being an asshole. I personally would even go as far to say that mindset is dangerous. The saying needs to be completely denormalised or better yet completely removed from the way people think
I hope this helps at least one person. No one should get slapped with a bill or collections notice that is not their responsibility then get told to “just pay it.”
My loving husband came with a very nasty ex-wife. They were AT&T users and after they split, he did a transfer of billing responsibility(TBR) to split their account so she would be responsible for her line and phone and he for his. He got a new account for his line and phone payment. After we got together, we paid off his phone, closed his account (“Thank you, Mr. X for your service all these years. You have a zero balance. Have a nice life” or whatever they say when you leave them) and he was added to my Verizon account. All was well, right?
A few months later, we got another collections letter. (We already paid off all his other collections and credit card balance from her.) Of course, I was pissed because this one was $800 and I thought we were done paying off his past. So he called AT&T to ask about the bill.... keep reading on reddit ➡
Yesterday I went to pick up a cold brew (just one) at 2:15 and there were ten people standing outside waiting for their drinks. One by one trays of 4 venti Frappuccino’s were coming out and the line kept getting longer. It was clear that the store was understaffed and I felt bad for the employees who had to deal with this. The promotion is abusive to employees and customers are taking advantage of it. Happy hour needs to go. Thanks to all the baristas who made it through yesterday and I hope corporate can figure this one out.

This occurred 22years ago when I worked as an inbound call auto and home insurance agent in all 50 states. I would sit in my cubical 8 hours a day taking incoming phone calls from people who could get a discount t on their insurance because of who they worked for.
I answer the phone with my normal “cheerful” self and a woman cuts me off and asks me how much her auto insurance will be. This isn’t uncommon so I start to ask my questions.
Me: what state are you in? Her: I’m not telling you.
Me: what company you work for? Her: I’m not telling you.
At this point I explain that rates vary by state and the discount varies by company (if you coworkers are crappy risks you get less of a discount)
Her: I just want to know how much it’s going to cost to insure my car!
Me: what kind of car? Her: I’m not telling you.
Me: I have to know the year make and model at least because costs vary based on that info. Her: fine, it’s a red one.
At this point I have done my very best but after 1... keep reading on reddit ➡
I (21F) am a server in a small town in Kansas, where the minimum wage for waitresses is $2.13/hr, which is just enough to cover income taxes. Due to that, all of my income (and for most of the servers in the state) is comprised of tips.
Recently, I got into an argument with an acquaintance (25M) of mine. He’d mentioned how he doesn’t believe in tipping, and that it wasn’t right of me to treat customers that never tip as less important than other customers. Generally, if I have a lot of tables, I will put off serving cheapskates until my other tables are caught up.
I understand that the tipping system is broken, but I also believe people that don’t tip with the mindset of “I’m gonna change this system,” are either consciously or subconsciously taking advantage of it.
And I believe a portion of people refusing to tip is not gonna change the system and force my employers to give me a living wage, but instead, just screw me over because I live in a small-town and don’t have the option... keep reading on reddit ➡
I work at a crafts store, and today I was putting out freight in the fine arts section. A customer asked me if we sold anything to clean canvas paintings. I told her that we didn't, we only sold brush cleaner which is the truth. She looked around the aisle and didn't find what she was looking for, as I expected.
She then asked if we sold cardboard boxes specifically for shipping canvases. We sell no cardboard boxes, apart from decorative boxes, so I told her that we didn't sell them. I suggested she look in UPS, but I honestly wasn't sure if they would sell boxes of that dimension which I told her.
She then said that I was unhelpful and rude and shouldn't be working in retail If I wasn't going to be helpful. I told her that I had answered all of her questions and that I wasn't being rude. She then angrily left the aisle complaining about me. I'm not sure if she's going to call corporate or something but I know I 100% didn't do anything wrong so I'm prepared to defend myself if I ne... keep reading on reddit ➡
The level of cheating is just beyond stupid now.
Just played 1 game of Duo's and 3 games of Plunder.
Almost every single kill on kill cam, you could see them tracing me through the wall.
To then just shoot as I came out of cover.
What is the point in playing if you more often than not, that is who you are playing against?
Night after night, dying last few circles to hackers. Most of them don't even try and hide it anymore.
Edit: Bloody hell this blew up. Stay safe, folks.
