That Sale Is Stuffed

, | TX, USA | Ignoring & Inattentive, Lazy/Unhelpful

(I want to buy a stuffed cat for a friend and call a really big multi-product store.)

Employee #1: “[Store], how may I help you?”

Me: “Can you transfer me to your toy department?”

Employee #1: “One moment, ma’am.”

(The phone rings for a long time.)

Employee #2: “Hello, [Major Fast Food Chain].”

Me: “What?”

Employee #2: “[Major Fast Food Chain]. How can I help you?”

Me: “Well, I was calling to ask about a stuffed animal, but, um…”

Employee #2: “Well, I wouldn’t know. I’m actually only a customer here and the phone kept ringing and ringing and I just couldn’t help it.”


Your Checkout Does Not Check Out

| USA | Coworkers, Lazy/Unhelpful, Transportation

(Each cab at the company I work for is checked out by the driver each shift. When it’s checked out, it’s the driver’s responsibility to make sure the little things are taken care of. There is one coworker who is incredibly lazy and complains about everything. We’re talking over their walkie-talkies.)

Coworker: “This is such bull-s***.”

Me: “What?”

Coworker: “Whoever had cab [number] last left it trashed! There’s [Fast Food] wrappers everywhere!” *continues to rant a few minutes*

Me: *checks the previous week’s schedule* “Um… [Coworker]…? You were the last one to check out that cab.”

Coworker: “…”


Stucks To Be You

| Edinburgh, Scotland, UK | Employees, Lazy/Unhelpful

(I and two colleagues get stuck between floors in a lift in our office. We hit the emergency button which connects us to the front security desk.)

Me: “Hi. We’re stuck in lift three between the third and fourth floors.”

Security Guard: “Well, sucks to be you.” *hangs up*


Pin The Tail On The Culprit

| Phoenix, AZ, USA | Bad Behavior, Coworkers, Lazy/Unhelpful, Liars/Scammers

(We have several new coworkers, one of whom is working this shift. Coworker #1 is currently working and is known for being ‘too nice’ even when people are taking advantage of her. Coworker #2 is notoriously lazy, rude, and is very close to being fired. During a slow period, the following conversation happens.)

Coworker #1: “You know, this is one of the better jobs that I’ve had! I don’t think I have a problem with ANYONE here! Everyone works so hard!”

Me: “Really? Haven’t you worked with [Coworker #2]?”

Coworker #1: “Of course! He’s… well… not the nicest person in the world sometimes…”

Me: “Didn’t he take off last shift without filing any of his paperwork, and leaving you to do it?”

Coworker #1: “Well… yeaaahhh… but it’s not like it’s that much extra work!”

Me: “And didn’t he repeatedly call his cell phone last shift to look like he was on a call, but was just sitting there doing nothing?”

Coworker #1: “He did?!”

Me: “And he learned the trick of flicking the receiver to make it reset him to the back of the call queue so the calls roll and we ALL get docked on our call reviews?”

Coworker #1: “He’s not THAT bad!”

Me: *pointed look*

Coworker #1: “Okay, so he’s a bit of an Eeyore.”

Me: “Not so much an Eeyore as a jack-a**”
