Here we are folks, the dream we all dream of.

I work in a physical therapy office as something of an office manager/patient coordinator. There are occasionally a few crazy people that come through here, but for the most part folks are nice and just get grouchy because they are in pain or frustrated.

I tried to work with a patient that was recommended to us. We were giving her big breaks to get in to see us because of the doctor that recommended her to us. She went crazy on me.

Apparently:
* There is nothing that I can do or anyone can do because everyone is corrupt from the top down.
* Even though she was recommended to see us and I was trying to cut her a deal against her copays and deductable she had never felt so manipulated in her life.
* Describing what we do in our office as opposed to other offices means that I think she is stupid.
* She has a PHD so she knows more about anything than I could ever know.
* I am an animal and that I should get back in my cage.

Hmm.

Normally people like me. Even the really crazy ones. I'm not used to that.

Did she say that in a husky, sexy voice, preferably with a German accent?

She just outed you, that's all. Anyone who has had PT knows that the therapists are all animals and con artists who just want your co-pay and to steal your insurance card.

Wait, what?

She needs to go for mental therapy soon.

Ditto. In a Geekmail? That would mean . . . surprise
I'm guessing that they were offended by the interrobang microbadge. Some people get really sensitive about that kind of thing.

The first entry is too priceless to not post:

Me: “Can I help you, ma’am?”

Customer: “Yes. What are these?”

Me: “That is a fortune cookie, ma’am.”

Customer: “It doesn’t look like a cookie. Where are the chocolate chips?”

Me: “Ma’am, these are a different kind of cookie. You open them up and they tell your fortune on a piece of paper.”

Customer: “What kind of cookies have paper in them!?”

Me: “Fortune cookies, ma’am.”

Customer: “This is an outrage! Cookies are meant to be eaten, and paper isn’t EATABLE!”

Me: “Please, ma’am, the paper is–”

Customer: “Shut up! I’m leaving.”

(The customer begins to storm out but in her anger misses the door and walks right into the wall. When she finally stumbles out, I open up the fortune cookie and read its message: “Do not worry. You will get what is coming to you in life.”)

This is so good.

My favorite so far:

Quote:
There Is Such A Thing As A Free Lunch
Framing Shop | Montreal, Quebec, Canada

(I’m eating lunch at the front desk of our framing shop when I get called to the back. When I return to the front, I notice a customer standing in front of my sandwich at the desk.)

Customer: “Hi.”

Me: “Good afternoon. Is there anything I can help you with today?”

Customer: “No.” *stares at my sandwich*

Me: “Well, are you in need of assistance?”

(The woman suddenly snatches up my sandwich.)

Me: “Ma’am, that’s my lunch. Please give it back to me.”

Customer: “I was walking by and I got hungry.”

Me: “Ma’am, there’s a deli down the street. Please do not eat my lunch.”

Customer: “But it was on the counter. That means it’s complimentary! It’s my sandwich and I’m going to eat it.”

(At this point, my coworker comes out the back.)

Coworker, to me: “Isn’t that your lunch?”

Customer: “It’s my lunch now! MINE.” *starts eating the sandwich* “This has MAYONNAISE in it!”

Me: “Yes, ma’am. Ham and mayo.”

Customer: “I hate mayonnaise! It looks and tastes like sperm!” *throws my sandwich on the floor and runs out the door*

Me: “…What just happened?”

Just loooove it when such things happen. I'm in a counselling position attempting to help troubled parents with their troubled children.

Once had a single parent blow up and storm out of my office as I attempted to start explaining some helpful behaviour management techniques... "WHY DOES IT HAVE TO BE ME!!!" surprise

Ummm, because YOU are the parent who has to manage your child, YOU are the one who is sitting in front of me at this moment.

Sometimes people just tend to dump their frustrations and you end up taking the brunt.

Chin up... repeat after me "I'm good enough, I'm skilled enough, and dog gone it, I can help people."

Hilarious.

Quote:
(A woman and her three year old daughter leave the changing room and approach my counter. She looks to be flustered and in a hurry.)

Me: “Hi there, can I help you?”

Customer: “Just this, please.” *hands me her items*

Me: “That’s £49.96, please.”

(The woman frantically searches her bag for her purse and almost turfs the contents out onto the floor.)

Customer: “I can’t find my purse.”

Me: “It’s okay, take your time. Perhaps you left it in the changing room?”

Customer: “No, I didn’t leave anything in there! Here it is.”

(She hands me her credit card, I complete the transaction and hand her her purchases.)

Me: “Here you go. Thank you for visiting today.”

Customer: *nervous smile* “Thank you.”

(The woman walks away hastily. Just before she gets to the shop door, her daughter speaks up.)

Customer’s daughter: “But mummy, we did leave something in the changing room!”

Customer: *starts walking quicker* “Shhh!”

Customer’s daughter: *triumphantly* “We left my poo in there!”

(The woman grabs the child by the hand and runs out of the shop. My colleague and I run over to the changing room to see for ourselves. Sure enough, in the corner of one of the changing rooms, there is a small pile of poo. We didn’t know whether to laugh or cry.)

Sorry, Morgan. That sucks.

But this is funny:
Quote:


(Often I enter the beer cooler with shorts, a t-shirt and some rubber-hand work gloves on.)

Me: *walks out of the cooler*

Customer: “Are you f***ing insane? It’s freezing in there.

Me: “I don’t mind it.”

Customer: “That’s bulls***! You know it’s cold. Why would you lie to me?”

Me: “Excuse me? I’m pretty sure I know my own tolerance and I’m working so I get a bit warm, even in there.”

Customer: “WARM!? In a COOLER!? You’re a G**D*** LIAR! How can you be WARM in THERE!”

Me: “I’m Canadian, and ever since my igloo melted I only feel at home in there.”

Customer: “Oh, I didn’t know. I’m sorry for your loss.”

I have just spent the past two hours reading the linked-to site, and I feel like I peered into the abyss. After the first hour, I felt terrible about humanity. After the second hour, I want the first spaceship bound for the nearest civilized extraterrestrial race. NOW.

I can barely believe there are really this many people in the wild who are addled, high, drunk, and/or insane. I pity their struggle through this life, It is way harder than anything I've dealt with.
