When you work at a job where you have to deal with customers often, you’re bound to run into a few that test your patience, gross you out or are down right nuts. There’s not much you can do but smile, nod, and continue to assist them.

Well, we can sympathize.

We’re launching a new show soon here on CAREEREALISM based around the crazy stories that people have from their jobs. You can read more about this great new show at the bottom of this post!

We  created a list of some of the types of customers and situations you might run into when dealing with them.

When a customer comes into your work right as it’s closing.




The customer that tries to intimidate you to get their way.




Messing with customers because, yeah they totally deserved it.




Listening to a customer file a long, detailed complaint.




The customers that pay with ALL PENNIES!




The customers who meltdown when you don’t have what they want.




The customers who are lonely and just want someone to talk to.




The customers who can’t decided what they want.




The customers who just can’t take a hint.




Somedays they make you want to just throw in the towel…



BUT you need the money. And the job.

So, put back on that smile, take a deep breath and continue to ask them the dreaded question, “How may I help you?”




Submit Your Stories!

We’re launching a new show called Careers On Tap. The premise of the show is that J.T., our Founder and CEO, will be discussing with her humorous co host the crazy stories that viewers submit about their career. Then, she will give her advice on what might help the situation or how to better handle it next time. On top of all of this, you can drink a nice cold beer with them through out the whole show. There will be featured beers on each weeks show.

Now, this is where we need your help! We want you to tell us your craziest work stories. This whole process is completely anonymous. Your name, the names of your co-workers, boss, customers, and company will NEVER be mentioned. So, what have you got to lose!

Just to give you all a sense of what our topics will be, here is the list of the next few episodes:

- Retail Nightmares

- Food Industry Horror Stories

- Co-Workers: The Bad, The Worse, and The Down Right Obnoxious

- Clash Of The Personality Types

- Romancing The Office

If you’d like to submit, please fill out the form below with the title of your story, what episode you think it should be featured in, and all the juicy details of your awesome story.
