Have you ever been at a restraunt and seen that waitress or waiter being yelled at by that one cusotmer? What about that cashier at the store that accidently gave the wrong change? Well this is for them.
You are not always right anymore. We control your food, when you dine out, we control the parts for your car, when you need it fixed. We sell you clothes when you need them, we stock the shelves at your grocery store that you always go to. So when you talk down to us, or treat us as if we do not exist in your world, or you decide that you are going to have us fired because you are not satisfied with anything and you believe it is our fault for your displeasure, think about what would happen if the shoe were on the other foot.
What if we were able to take you to civil court because of your accusations against us that got us fired from our job? Do you think about how you hurt that persons life because of your selfish desire to have the wrong you believe you experienced righted by having that meaningless employee fired from possibly the only job available to them? How can you live with yourself? Do you experience unemployment at the same time? Of course not. You probably believe that if a person looses his or her job they must not be very good employees. Of course it could not be due to your complaint, even after you told that employee that you were going to have him fired. It's not your fault that they are a bad employee, Or was it that what actually happened was that you were having a bad day and the first meaningless employee that you came in contact with, no matter if they were nice or mean, they would receive your wrath because in your mind they were at fault. Did you ever stop to think that you were the one with the problem?
Did your food come to you hot and edible or are you just so superior to everyone else that you had to send it back because it was just not good enough for you? Everyone else is beneath you so treat them like the gum on your shoe because they deserve it? Well I want to stand up today and say it is time for this to stop. We may not be as rich as you, we may not drive an expensive car around, and we may not own a mansion, but we are human. We deserve to be treated with respect, We deserve to be viewed as good people. If you are having a bad day, dont take it out on us. Don't have us fired for your mistake. And stop trying to get freebies for your accidents by blaming them on us.
We do not deserve to have our lives threatened, our employment threatened, or our very existance threatened.
If you have us fired in this economy are you going to give us a job? Are you going to tell that single moms children that they are soon going to be homeless because you had to have their mom fired from her job because you felt she did not deserve to work? Are you going to tell the children of all single parents that you had their parents job taken away from them because of your selfish desires?
Just stop it. Think about the situation. Who is really at fault for your mistake? Us? Or did you just have an event that upset you to the point that you did not know what to do? Did you know that we have sympathy for you? We are not just cusotmer service professionals. We are also caring people. We do honestly care about what happens to you. So the next time you are having a bad day, try talking to us and say what is on your mind. We might surprise you by being really good listeners and can be capable of turning your bad day into a good one.
In other words, don't take your troubles out on us, tell us about them. Maybe we can help.
