Annoying customers

Overheard in restaurant -
rather drunk diner at dessert ordering stage asking the waitress how on earth she lived under communism, sure it must have been terrible ( imagine some slurring going on here too ).
Waitress looking slightly embarrassed as patrons wife looked on waiting to hear the answer.
I didn't hear the answer as I could only hear the loud gentleman who was doing the asking.
It made me cringe. How must the waitress have felt?
I suppose it is much the same as being asked about growing up under terrorism and army on the streets here.
Bloody annoying then.

The primary lesson I've learned from a few years customer service:

All customers are annoying, primarily in their unreasonable insistence on wanting service in return for parting with their money.

'course, any time a furriner asked about living under the threat of terror, etc, I used to really enjoy myself. Tales of needing helicopter cover to go to the shops really confused the dumber of them.

Peoples dumbassedness (hey, new word)never fails to amuse me, sometimes even my own.

I have never been that cruel as to make up tall tales to confuse those of lesser neuron density than myself. Well, not since I was very young.

Helicopter cover for the shops though, I'll bet their eyes just widened.

Well, thems wot believed that one had no difficultly accepting that school buses required an armoured car as escort and could only travel in groups of 3 or more.

Of course, even they didn't believe the tall tales about whole parts of the city being surrounded by steel gates which could be closed to prevent anyone leaving. That'd be one step too far...

No one would ever believe that.
