When people ask for water a lot of times it ticks me off too. I had an obnoxious lady come in today with her kid and friend. As I was trying to get her order she just totally ignored me and kept talking to her friend. Then after she finally stopped talking to order her heart-attack-in-a-cup this is how it went down...
Disgustomer: I want a blah blah blah...
Me: Okay, no problem. *Goes and makes her drink* Here you go have a great day!
Disgustomer: Oh and could you rinse this cup out for me? I just bought it for my son. Can you rinse it in really hot water?? (Her friend asked her why she can't wait until she gets home... same thing I was wondering...)
Me: Sure... *goes and rinses it AND dries it* (Why was I so nice?? -_-) *Hands her the cup*
Disgustomer: Oh and can you fill it with some ice water? (Why couldn't you tell me that right away?)
(Just when I think she finally got lost, she returns, leans over the counter, and says...)
Disgustomer: Can I have some napkins??
Me: Are there none out on the bar?
Disgustomer: No, you're out.
Me: Okay, one second. *Hands her paper towels*
Disgustomer: You're still out of napkins!!!!
Me: I KNOW I'LL GET TO THEM IN A MINUTE!
Yep, I raised my voice to her. The first time ever I have raised it to a customer and I really don't care. She was so freaking obnoxious.
I work at a licensed store inside a larger store, so not only do we get a lot of customers asking for water in the afternoons, but we also get every IMPATIENT EMPLOYEE who works in the store asking for it as well... We'll have a line to the door, and one of them will come to the handoff, butt in front of the customers waiting, and ask "Can I get a water???" GET IN LINE, FOOL! I'm not here to be at your beck and call. Get some respect. It's beyond irritating. We even have a water fountain in the store for goodness sake. Then we have some employees who are so stinking impatient that they come into the KIOSK during rushes (98% not even asking mind you), get in front us blocking the ice box and the counter where we make ice drinks, just to get their own water... So that means we have to stop making drinks because their big butts are in the way and wait until they're done.
Buttheads. All of them.
