I work in customer support for 4 banks...I know EXACTLY what you mean. I have a customer at one of our banks that will call wanting help but he gets 12 pages ahead of me and I can't figure out what the hell he's clicking on. So of course he gets mad cause we can't help him.

One time I when I was waiting tables..I worked at Shoneys and there is no pay at the table here at Shoneys.  Anyway, sometimes older people would ask me to pay their bill for them. In order to do that I would have to go up to the register wait on whoever was in line and cash it out and return with the change..this can take a bit of time especially when you are busy.  Anyway, one man came in and ate and asked me to do this for him so I take up his money and before I got back this man was up and screaming at the manager and another waitress that I STOLE his money and he was going to kick my A**.  That was interesting.  Sorry you had a bad day too.  I don't get what people are thinking sometimes.

i had a woman here on cafemom tell me i wasn't good at my job, which was army interrogator.  the woman was a civilian and probably didn't know the first thing about interrogation or human intelligence collections...

but it's cafemom so i blew her off, lol.  i admit, i would have been really angry if she said those things to me in person.

I used to sell diamonds...what tools would come in telling me lines from the movie blood diamond or wipping out there eye pieces...TOOLS!  I hate it when they would come in with some bs off of QVC about tanzanite or something it was really annoying!  My mom has worked for the PD as a dispatcher for 20 years and I know she could tell a few stories too!

I work for an ambulance transportation company. We have quite a few hospitals that will send us a request with nothing more than the room the patient is in and the hospital they are coming from. We then have to call the hospital to track the nurse down and ask her where the patient is going, what thier DOB and SS# is, insurance information and what kind of transport the patient will need. Most of the time, they dont have any idea, even though they are the patients nurse. Or what really gets me is when a nurse calls and needs to set up transport but has no information on the patient. Mind you, we ask the same information for all transports we do, both emergency as well as non-emergency. 

Or whats even better is when a nursing home or an assisted living facility call to send a resident out, they call us when half the time they very clearly should have called 911.
