Everybody who has worked in the service industry in any capacity has had to deal with some truly horrendous human beings at one point or another. It’s a statistical matter more than anything; the sheer amount of people you are forced to interact with on a daily basis inherently lends itself to odds that bad people will make up certain percentage of said group.
People who are rude to service employees are trash people (unless we’re talking about telecom or student loan companies, you can be as mean to them as you like.)
But though rude customers are to be expected, dealing with them is never a pleasant experience. What’s worse is that they don’t usually get their comeuppance on account of that familiar ‘customer is always right’ adage (everybody knows the customer is always wrong.) Not usually. But sometimes.
One such tale of retribution was posted to subreddit r/TalesFromYourServer, a place for industry workers to share their customer horror stories. User u/lustfulspiritanimal told a gripping tale; The date is Valentine’s Day, the setting: a restaurant (duh). And though this story undoubtedly featuers a customer from hell, it also concludes with said customer getting her just reward. Vengeance is a dish best served spontaneously and with zero effort on your own part, as they say.
