    I labored for a grocery store chain right here within the US for the previous three years. I busted my butt there for minimal wage in order that I pays for faculty. I at all times took additional shifts and did every part my supervisor requested me to do. I was worker and I by no means even had a lot as a write up.

    Yesterday a ladies got here in to the shop. She got here as much as the customer support desk whereas I was serving to one other buyer. She began to snap her fingers at me and demand my consideration. Stating she was in a rush and wanted assist discovering one thing instantly.

    I instructed her that I needed to end with the present buyer first and than I could be proper there to help her. She was not too completely satisfied about it however waited till I completed.

    When it was her flip, I requested her what she was trying for. The ladies requested me the place the “chicky figs” are.

    I was confused and didn’t perceive what she meant so I requested her to repeat herself however she mentioned it the very same means the second time. I actually had no thought on the time what she was referring to. My thoughts just went clean as I have by no means heard somebody use that terminology earlier than.

    I requested her what that was as I was not conversant in it. That’s when she out of the blue turned violent. Screaming at me that I was an fool and nugatory. I tried to defuse the scenario however this ladies just would not relax. She was inflicting an enormous scene that was drawing the eye of different prospects. I felt that it was essential to name for the supervisor and safety.

    My supervisor got there first. He has at all times been the “customer is always right” kind. He got here down and instantly requested me what I had carried out incorrect. He apologized to her for my behaviour and requested her what she needed. He was in a position to determine that she was trying for frozen rooster fingers. He gave her a free field of rooster fingers and she or he continued to verbally insult me.

    Later my supervisor mentioned I was within the incorrect. That I was being impolite and condescending to the client and I ought to have understood what she was asking for. I tried to defend myself and clarify my aspect of the story however he would not hear. He mentioned there are numerous school college students he can rent to do my job and that I was a dime a dozen lady. I was fired and instructed to get off the property.

    I really feel silly now for not realizing she was asking for rooster fingers however I actually did not perceive her. I don’t perceive why she couldn’t have just mentioned it correctly. I don’t perceive how it’s my fault that she prompted a scene and scared different prospects.

    Now I’m unemployed and making an attempt to determine what to do subsequent. I don’t perceive how the client is at all times proper even on the expense of a tough working worker. It just doesn’t make sense to me.




    Adults really want to cease with the cringy child language like that. Chocky milk is one other one.



    Fuck that place and that woman. Who the fuck calls it chicy figs within the first fucking place, and might’t determine to stroll their ass over to the frozen part that they are at all times in.

    Also fuck your boss for firing you over this. Even in the event you had been within the flawed right here (you were not), it is what like $10 fucking {dollars} you value the corporate? This place is poisonous. Find someplace higher.



    Personally I labored grocery for 8 years at one level and I’ve by no means heard of chicky figs. Fuck that bitch. I might have simply informed her to fuck off and stroll away, would have resulted in the identical consequence on this case.

    Also your supervisor is a cock sucker piece of shit by asking what you probably did flawed quite than what the problem was. Honestly go discover a higher job, as a result of it appears like they did you a favor. Customers aren’t at all times proper, in truth they’re usually instances utterly flawed and out of line. A supervisor than will not again up their subordinates is an organization man piece of shit. That’s poor management.



    What absolutely the fuck is a chicky fig? Getting fired appears like the very best factor that might have occurred.



    Better you get out of there. Any job that “the customer is always right” simply means the shopper is allowed to abuse you. I do not suppose anybody would know what she was asking for. Find a greater job and perceive you are price greater than being somebody’s punching bag. Good luck on the job search



    I used to be legit attempting to determine what a chicky fig was, since i do know there are figs and fig newtons. I by no means would have made that connection. I’m sorry you needed to undergo that. Managers usually suck. I consider every thing occurs for a purpose and that you’re going to discover one thing far more appropriate.

    I can nearly assure he’s the kind to complain about how no one needs to work anymore.

    File for unemployment and discover one thing higher, they set a really low bar on that one.



    Jobs are a dime a dozen proper now. You did nothing flawed transfer on and don’t take into consideration these pricks once more



    Wow! I’m enraged for you. “Chicky figs” I’d have been confused as properly. Like is {that a} factor this retailer carries?

    You deserve higher and can discover higher!
