Dumb Customers

I hate it when "customers" call into the customer service department and they don't even know why are they calling ¬¬

I mean, what's wrong with that guys?!

Totally wrong for this but who cares...

Working in retail has somewhat affected how I look at certain types of customers and how they get dealt with.

For example:
Customer: You speaka da esaponal? (thick spanish accent)
Me: No how can I help you ?
Customer: speaka espanol?
Me: Nonone does... Paying bill?
Customer: (customer rattles on in spanish)
Me: (after typing in to google translate what do they need help with)
Customer😲h yes bill
Me: Number?
Customer: Jose sapata
Me: Number???
Customer: *shrugs*
Me: ☹️ (a few minutes go by of more spanish I dont understand) Your bill is $425. Cash or card?
Customer: What?! i thought i pay $80 dollares (accent mostly gone by this point)
Me: I thought you didnt speak English sir?? 😁 😁

I don't feel empathy for you

when you yell at me that you have been with us for 15+ years, and your service has always been crappy, always. I cannot relate to you, nor understand you. Who would continue to pay for a service that sucks for 15 years?

have you ever ventured into the lounge?

i know you shop talk types; devoted employees, kiss asses, rule followers...

you should try the lounge next time youre bored out of youre mind while talking to a 70 something wanting to know how to make the font larger.

you might just enjoy it.

you might also meet a significant other or random hook-up, for it happens often in the lounge.

its magical

Customers can never be kind and Loelia hits me.

We are updating our customer's information (so when they call they are asked to provide their current address, contact TN, email, etc...)
Besides this my co-worker Loelia hits me with her eyeglasses case or hand wallet just because.
It seems that this is due to the high availability (time on the phone without getting a call) that we have due to the holidays.
What is it like for you guys working as CSRs for other phone companies?

Do you still have an oldie (2 Yrs or more) cellphone as your main cellphone?
I still have my old HTC Desire HD (Inspire 4g in the US) running Android 2.3.3. I can handle my whole agenda with that device. It covers all my needs (Besides working as a C.S rep for a M.V.N.O; I also offer tech support to small/mid business for their computer networks and equipment; I am trying to establish a small tech support business on my own).

I do not live in the U. S. and I guess many people that work on C. S. for cellular carries around the world (and U. S carriers that outsource their customer service) follow this website.
Which phone do you have?
