The age of no manners

I have worked in customer service for eight years now, serving food and now working as a teller. And I have come to one conclusion: we are in time where manners have completely been disregarded by the use of technology and the rudeness of people.

It all started a couple months back, where I was working in the drive thru at job. It is my job to assist customers and provide them with the best service possible. You think it would be convenient for a customer to be attentive as I’m servicing their needs? Absolutely not.

As I helped a customer the other day, I simply started with, “Hello, how are you today?” It was the happy preppy voice that I could ever conjure. With no hesitation the customer said “Withdrawal slip!” This was not the only Occurrence as their have been multiple times in which this has happened. Working in retail and customer service is one of the toughest jobs around. And it’s people like this that sicken me. I love my customers, I really do. But I deserve the same kind of respect as I give them.

This is when I realized that we are in an age of no manners. We have reached the pinnacle of disrespect. The point of no return. And it’s only going to get worse. I remember when I first started out as a server and I would have customers curse at me nonstop, and it’s even worse dealing with money.

My word of advice, kill them with kindness. I love that idea and have become much accustomed to it. It’s great.
