Customer fucking service! You can't train that shit, when you train it it comes across as fake and awkward.
You're either good at customer service or you're not IMO. And my customer service is motherfucking top notch shit.

I don't know about that.

Quote:(As an eager young 16 year old, I get my first job, as a busboy for a local pizzeria. While training me on my responsibilities, the manager tries to impart some timeless wisdom to me.)

Manager: “Customer service is important. You’ve heard the saying, I’m sure: ‘The Customer Is Always Right.'”

Me: “Yes, I’ve heard that.”

Manager: “Well, don’t believe it. Nine times out of ten, the customer is a f****** moron.”

Me: “…”

Manager: “But here’s the thing: the customer may be the biggest g****** sack of s*** douchebag idiot out there, but we want to take his money from him. So we let him THINK he’s right. If he says he’s the f****** king of France, what do you say to him?”

Me: “May I clear those plates, your majesty?”

Manager: “You’re going to do fine.”

(Thus began my cynical career in customer service…)

awwww shit...

Just realized (thank goodness kiddo reminded me to get him early so I got my phone alarm set -- yes I'm totally that disorganized), I've got to pick up kiddo at 12 from now until the end of school (three more days).

Crap. That's seriously going to fuck with my Monday. Dodgy

'Rural' is not pronounced 'rool' or 'ruhl'. Angry

It has two r's and two syllables. This was on NPR, for fuck's sake. Facepalm

My friends live on that street and they can't even pronounce it correctly.

I don't see what the deal is ... it's just 2 'r's. I don't even bother with other people's speech impediments any more. If they can't say 'February'... fuck 'em. Drinking Beverage

R's and L's are very difficult to say for some of the people I work with.

It's a funky word. Fast talkers like myself tend to avoid it all together.

Going the other way, I don't think I've ever heard anyone pronounce 'realtor' correctly. Everyone wants to put an extra syllable between the 'l' and the 't' -- 'real-a-tor'. It makes me cringe every time I hear it.
