In the words of Apollo Creed ' some people got to learn... the hard way'

Selhurst Celtic 12-03-2015 11:13 AM

I was a being trained as a till monkey at Texas Homecare back in the day (part of my warehouse staff role was to be able to cover the tills if required) and when a what appeared to be a vagrant approached my till clutching two bottles of white spirits my supervisor whispered in my ear: "Don't serve him, he's going to drink those" and then scarpered.

So I said to yer man that I can't serve him. He looked shocked and explained that his appearance was due to gutting a house and the painters needed white spirits for the gloss paint work they were doing.

That was fair enough for me, especially as I'd been abandoned, and as I was putting them through the till he gave me a wink and said: "You haven't got any in the fridge have you?"

I was back ragging the forklift around the loading bay in about 10 minutes & was never put on the tills again.

His response wasn't taken in good spirits then.

Only having 3 weekends off as a family this year due to me and Mrs mushroom's shift work.

The clapping and cheering and fawning that goes on as animal and waving jockey walks down the winners enclosure, just because a bloke managed to sit on a horse that beat some other horses over the line. It was the horse that won, not you, so pipe down. You in fact made it go slower.

Good point!

Ban horse racing. Full stop. Capital letter.

Yeah, like it. They can do whatever they wish with their winnings too!

It reminds me of the unsung Sherpas who carry all the kit bare-footed up a vast mountain for explorers who get all the credit and goodies.

Some people's standards are higher than others.

besides, as I said, customer service works both ways.

Here's a great example of your customer service:

The one I always used to get was,

"Is this the fast train to London Bridge?" I would say, "Yes". Of course, they are all fast. He didn't say fastest though.

When they do ask is this the fastest, I say, "No, the Gatwick Express is."

ANd another,

"Does this platform go to London Bridge?"

"No, but the train does."

High standards? :D

They are moments of comedy gold given to those that deserve it. It's how customer service should be all of the time, but it isn't, because we have to be 'professional'.

Where's your sense of humour, BE?

;)

CPFC2010ANDON 12-03-2015 05:15 PM

Also, BE, do you really have that much time on your hands to go digging?

Have you not heard the phrase 'hung like a horse', don't you think that is enough ?

I was actually working all day today so no, but generally yes I do.

(If I'm honest I came across it when searching for a post of mine on a completely different subject. It just seemed perfect for this thread.)

Language experts that start threads that they don’t know what they’re talking about. :bash:

Tomorrow the PM will say …………
Tomorrow the Chancellor will say …………..
Tomorrow the leader of the opposition will say in a speech………….
Tomorrow the leader of the Lib Dems will say …………………..

There was a time before media advisers when announcements were made to the House!

Or the feckers who empty their ashtrays under the car when it's parked.

For once it would be the nags on the nose bag not the jockeys.

Lunchtime Palace matches. It's just not right. How is a man supposed to watch football half-asleep?

On the contrary, I'm quite looking forward to the early kick off tomorrow. Out the ground by 3. Then either in the pub, or home to watch the late kick off and the rugby on TV and iPad.

Drivers who dither at junctions
Drivers who go 25mph in a 30 on a clear road.
Drivers who do not use their indicators.
Drivers who do not acknowledge when you have been courteous to them when you give them the right of way.

So basically all drivers.
