Two Phrases That Destroyed American Culture

so I know that there will be a lot of TL:DR about this post because it's quite a read, but the stories are to the point so I encourage you do read it if you have a few minutes to spare.

For those of you that don't want to read it, here is the short version.

#1 - The customer is always right.

Sorry no, sometimes the customer is a punk. But you can't tell them that because this stupid idea is worked into society and you will get fired.

#2 - I don’t give respect freely. You have to earn my respect.

Again so very wrong. If you don't give respect in the first place you do nothing to earn any in return. Get it through your thick skull.

    Sometimes, I have to agree.

    well... most times.

    actually... all the time.

    Customers are idiots.

    When I first clicked here I thought I was going to read..
    "Would you like fries with that?"
    "Supersize please"
    or something along those lines

    One thing I was told at orientation for my first job: "The customer is always right, as long as they're being reasonable.

    I have no issue with the second statement.

    I think to me it's more about, I don't want to have to call in a manager to tell the person to jog on for being a jerk or making outrageous demands. It should be more along the lines of "The customer will be courteous and kind or will be met with hostility and a swift boot out of the door."

    "All of a sudden."

    The phrase that created hillbillies and rednecks. It is a blight that must be wiped out quickly and mercilessly.
