Well I guess a vacation didn't help, because customers are still annoying the fuck out of me.
I would like to let you in on a secret: It snows every year.
Yes, I know that comes as a surprise to many people, especially our customers.
Every year my father plows some of the customer's driveways when the snow gets really bad. He does this because these people have been customers for years. They also pay him for snow plowing their driveways, but he mainly does it because they are loyal to our store and because he's known them for a long time. That means nothing to some of these people because they still use that as an opportunity to take advantage of him.
Some of these customers piss me off. What they don't understand is that snow plowing isn't his primary concern. His main job is running our store. But these people don't care about that. They will call our store at 3am wanting to know if he can plow their driveway. If I happen to be working night shift, I'm the lucky one that has to deal with these people.
Customer (at 3am): Yeah, I need my driveway plowed.
Me: Well the owner isn't here right now so you'll have to call back.
Customer: Can you call him? I really need my driveway plowed.
Me: No. It's 3 in the morning.
Customer: Well what am I supposed to do? I have to leave for work in a few hours.
Me: Start shoveling?
Customer: Can I have the owner's phone number? I'll just call him myself.
Me: No. Call back later. Have a nice day. *click*
I don't understand why people get so pissy about needing their driveway snowplowed. Do it your fucking self. Don't call me at 3am and expect things to get done. And these are the same fucks that come in and cause me problems about the gas prices. They use the line that they "know the owner" thinking that will intimidate me.
I hope next year he quits snowplowing for these assholes. I'm tired of dealing with them.
