Work is one of life's necessary evils. Few people want to drag themselves out of bed in the morning and join the grim-faced rat race, but the vast majority of us have to in order to keep the roof above our heads. We might not be able to avoid it, but at least we're in this together, and no matter how much your job might suck, there's always somebody who has it worse than you. Check out this funny collection of posts about working in customer service, compiled by Bored Panda, to see what we mean. Don't forget to vote for the best!

I have been the person who asked an employee for something right in front of my face! I was cool about it, and we both had a laugh. :-/

Lets be honest... I work in customer service in one of the largest retailers in the world, and its RARE and i mean RARE the managers side with us employees, they almost always let the customer get their damned way, which is why they pull the same shit over and over, because they can. On the rare occasions the managers DO side with employees... its almost frame worthy!

believe it or not, "the back" is not an infinite space of all the products we neglect to put in the front.

I used to love this! Gets you out of work for half an hour, and you get to act like a big shot who knows everything.

Corporate solution: "Send employees to other stores, demolish current store, build new one, move employees back. Same employees, same customers, same work, same, benefits, same pay, same same. But, shiny new building." President and VPs: "Oooo, ahhh..."

I had a job where I was salaried if the boss needed me to stay late, and hourly if I needed to leave early.

Ever since I worked at a place that was "open until the last customer leaves," I never go places near closing time anymore.
