Why is it that the rudest people work in jobs dealing with the public? If you don't like people then get a job working in a warehouse. As the public we expect to conduct business with a professional employee, and not to have our money snatched or change given in a snide way. After all we are just trying to pay for services the city provides, Water company in particular(female).

They are rude and snotty because they are not properly trained by their supervisors. They don't understand or care that without the public, they wouldn't have a job. These are also low-skill jobs that also have low pay and they resent us for making them do some work. If you ever want to see an example of this, just go to the Marketplace. The checkers won't speak to you until they tell you how much you owe, and even then no "thank you" or "have a nice day" or "do you need any help out". Just "that will be $142.67", nothing else. The assistant manager is the same way, if you can get him to open the express lane long enough to check some of the 28 people waiting in line to be treated like s%&t, so it all starts at the top. And what about the snotty carhops at Sonic that walk off with your change, without being told to keep the change. Or the ones that have the balls to ask "do you want your change?" It's MY change, so yes I want it. This is behavior that is taught or tolerated by management.

I agree 100% about rhe rude customer service. Dunno, but I've had to work with the public many many time in the past and would NEVER treat ANYBODY the way I get treated. Yes, Huge Azzhole is right on target by saying "It's the managers fault." I've been in The Marketplace and will not go back for that reason. I was completely shocked when I saw on his name tag that HE was one of the managers. And to the thieves at Sonic, back off a bit biotches. If you would learn how to act you would get a really good tip from me. Hell, I've waited tables and have ALWAYS tipped you people even before ANYBODY ELSE even thunk of tipping at the SONIC! BUT as long as NO ONE reports this type of behavior this is how we all will be treated. NEARLY every place I've been in around here should be bombarded with calls/complaints. START CALLING AND COMPLAINING, trust me it WILL help!

I forgot to say, I was TRAINED. There is your key word. BUT, some of it has to do with the way you're raised, too, though. Now, if you work with the public PUT A SMILE ON THAT FACE and try to act normal until you get off work. It's pretty simple.

It's the thugs of today. You couldn't train or teach them manners if you tried.

you can if you start young and aren't too lazy to keep after them, raising good kids takes years of work. and parents need to quit trying to be their freinds, and be parents. Whoop their asses when they need it, and from what i see they need it alot!
