These are the moments that retail workers hold near and dear. No, we aren’t just talking about fond memories with coworkers. These workers got to witness as their worst customers got instant karma for their terrible behavior.
Meltdowns aren’t just for babies and toddlers. Retail workers have to deal with grown adults having tantrums every day. There are lots of folks who are led to believe that the only way they’ll get what they want is to be aggressive and demanding about it. Technically, this does work some of the time, but it’s dehumanizing to the workers, who are just people too. Retail workers deserve so much respect, and receive so little from the very people they’re helping to pick out a shirt or ring up groceries.
Moments where the meltdowns end in instantaneous karma must be so satisfying though. Those are the kinds of thoughts that make you warm and cozy on a day where the customers are being truly terrible. Some of them will get exactly what’s coming for them.
Speaking of customer service, the only people who may have it worse than retail workers are the call center employees of the world. This person also had a great day at work—they were allowed to hang up on the same irate customer over and over and over.
