Customer Service and Driving Etiquette

Well hello there. I know it's been FOREVER since I have logged on and actually wrote something. I apologize for that. I have been thinking a lot recently trying to come up with a blog idea, I didn't want it to be whiney, I wanted it to be funny, but.... This is what you are getting, a rant, about things that bother me in regards to people's driving habits ( which I have written about once before but this is new) and how I feel about TERRIBLE customer service. Come join me in my right!!! READYANDGO.....

Alright, here it is. I guess I will start with driving habits.... IF YOU DON'T AGREE WITH THE SPEED LIMIT, IT DOES NOT MEAN YOU GET TO CREATE YOUR OWN!!!!!!!! Seriously people, there is a speed limit for a reason. And this certainly goes both ways. For those of you who think the speed limit is too fast for the road ( MY FATHER)  that does not mean you should drive slow than the speed limit. For your safety, and for my mental health, DRIVE THE SPEED LIMIT. Us normal people usually like to do that, if not a few miles over. Kthanks for your cooperation. Now..... for those of you who think driving everywhere is the flipping Indy 500, you are sadly mistaken and I hope you crash and die.. A little harsh I know, but hey, that's what you get for being in such a rush. Again, as us NORMAL people like to drive, we usually do the speed limit, and on the highway "fast" is 5 miles over. And yet I still have people flying past me. Life isn't about winning and chances are you won't be the first person to make it where you need to go, I promise this to you.  Kthanks. Now for those of you who REFUSE to use your blinker... GET AWAY FROM ME. That's all I have to say about that, cause you guys make me poop my pants every time you get near me cause I have no idea what you are doing!!!!  I have road-rage, this I know, but seriously, I took a driver's ed course and it feels like the older people drive worse than us younger ones, and yet we get the blame!!! WTF IS WRONG WITH THAT PICTURE? Think about it.

Now for those of you who work in customer service jobs, don't take this personally. I have done my time in retail and I know how I did things ( put a smile on my face and then when the customer exits, talk shit about them) BUT do not act like you hate your job, don't want to serve someone, or be snotty while the customer is in your presence, whether it may be on the phone or in person. It's pretty easy, let me tell you. I am so sick of rude people serving me and I try to be nice. I GIVE UP. Don't you want my business, don't you want my money? I thought you did, but the way people have been acting lately I am not sure. I guess I don't get it. I used to always put on a happy face while I was working with a customer and then I could complain later. So what do I have to say about this?? SUCK IT THE EFF UP!!!

END RANT. Kthanks.


  1. Haha! I cannot agree with you more. I came from GERMANY and the autobahn was intense and I STILL drive better than 3/4 of the people here! I've caught myself saying I actually miss the German drivers.

    Secondly, I hate customer service. Except for USAA, I love them. :)

  2. Customer service sucks no matter which end you're on. I feel like I'm the only one, ON EITHER END who who has any patience and common courtesy!! I had a woman call the hospital the other day and yell at ME because she couldn't get an update on her mother (who was in a procedure and UNDER ANESTHESIA!!!) because BY LAW we cannot give out patient information to ANYONE who does not have the patient security code.

    Andy yes, Ashlee talked for a good chunk of the way from Denver to the Springs about missing German drivers and how bad US drivers suck lol.
