Well.. yep.. you read it right..
Exactly what the title says. I got called a whale.. at work.. while serving a customer.
The exact conversation went like this:
Serving a 60-something year old lady who was buying some olay wrinkle cream...
Customer: Ooh I wish I had skin like yours, mines all wrinkley, I need this cream by the bucket load..
Me: Don't be silly you look fine, If I look like you at your age I'l be chuffed.
Customer: Oh I doubt you will, Chubby people very rarely age well.. Infact your not even chubby really are you, Your just really really... well fat! Just like a whale.
Me: What... Eh? Pardon.. what did you just say?
Customer: You heard me.. Your a massive fat whale..
Me: Oh.. Well thats a bit uncalled for!!!
Customer: I hate fat people, they turn my stomach..
Me: *Walked Off...* Left my collegue (Whos also "quite chubby") to deal with rude customer while I sob in the bathroom.
I mean how fricking dare that old bag say that!! I was in a pleasent manner, going about my day fine, Serving customers and getting on with my job and the all of a sudden WHAM!!! Well.. It was all down hill from there on in tbh..
I hate my job. Serving people is crap. I used to love it but it seems I keep getting all the nasty people atm but that was the worst customer I av ever had and thats saying something because last month I had a customer spit at me because I wouldn't give her a refund because she didn't have a reciept.
Anyways Im just ranting tbh, I've had my cry and now im really embarressed. Work has been going down hill for a while tbh and im desprate to get a new job. The company I work for has recently cut our hours and expects us to do doubt the amount of work in half the time and its just stressing me out. I don't wanna work in customer service or face to face retail anymore.
