I love to hate these service providers who respond, "No problem", to "Thank you", meaning that, serving you didn't challenge me this time. Don't be a problem if there's a next time, because serving you is about me. Say, "You're welcome", even if you don't mean it.

Day after day, the same service outrages happen over and over again and no one ever learns anything from them. The future society depicted in the film " Idiocracy " is already here.

I have not run into any of those except for Hurry up and listen. That one really makes me angry though; why is the person on the phone treated like they are more important!

Hurry up and listen is DEAD ON! I always told the people working for me that the person standing there with a dollar in their pocket is infinitely more important than someone calling on the phone. Worse is when they are on their own cellphones taking a personal call and deal with you in between sentences. Thanks Rubén!

I hate people who think you owe them an explanation about an obvious personal handicap or mallady. I have to cover the fingernails on my right hand with a band aid. There isn't a day that goes by that some idiot will stop me and go OOOOOOOOOOOOOH whats the matter with your finger nails. I finally have rerduced myself to simply saying none of your GD business or that I just came from the doctor and I just found out that I have been wiping my butt the woring direction for over 30 years. The looks on their idiotic ignorant stupid faces is priceless. I don't owe you squat so don't ask...............period.
