"You're xyz is falling apart and needs tp be replaced."When I had my automotive shop. Customer brings in vehicle for repairs. I tell them it'll be a few hours and they leave. 4.6 minutes later, they call and ask what time it'll be done. I let them know an approximate time and get off the phone.
An hour later, they call and ask if everything is going ok and if the time I said before is ok. I tell them yes and get off the phone.
An hour later, they call and ask if it's just about ready.
Like, mother fucker. If I didn't have to answer 3 dumbass phone calls, it probably could have been done.
The people dropping off major projects were just as bad. Every other day, is it ready? Is it ready yet?
NO BITCH, if it was ready I would have called you.
Call them to tell them it's ready. "Ok, we'll be there next week to pick it up" 🖕
yoooo - CompUSA is the retail job i had in collegeMan, I got the fuck out of retail ASAP. My very first job was at CompUSA and some geriatric fuck had a full on meltdown in the software section b/c I refused to open a box and show him that the cd was in there. He thought we were trying to scam him by selling empty boxes I guess? Once I realized he was an idiot I pointed to the discount bin and told him to rummage through there.
I have the reverse situationWe're going through a systems transition right now. Decision was 100% a business decision and IT has no say. Well, it has been nothing but a pain in the ass for IT to make work.
It's funny cause everyone on our team (front office) has industry experience with what we do (staffing) so everything was always set up with the day to day in mind. These people mean well but they want to do so much shit that our IT department either isnt willing to support or it opens us up to various audits. And it's so funny how us vs them it is.I have the reverse situation
Our IT director is making the decisions and has no clue how our site operates. He’s been here numerous times and still doesn’t know his way around the place even just basic locations
#1 for me. Office hours are not a suggestion. If you show up 20 minutes before we open just patiently wait until the open sign turns on and we unlock the office. Pounding on the door, ringing the doorbell, circling the building looking for an unlocked door or pressing your face to the windows is just annoying as fuck when the open sign isn't on and the office hours are clearly posted on the door you walked up to.

working black friday in 2005-2006 was the main motivation i had for finishing my degree. i remember watching people getting trampled over a shitty $199 panasonic LCD and thinking "there's no way i'm willing to deal with this bullshit when i'm fucking 34 years old."
