Anyone who has ever worked in the retail sector probably knows the age-old motto: “The Customer Is Always Right.” While this is a well-intentioned piece of advice for good customer service, it doesn’t mean it’s true! In fact, there's a whole website devoted to exposing the truth behind the myth, aptly named Not Always Right.

Some customers, because they are people like any others, make mistakes. They might have had a bad day, feel overly emotional and take it out on the nearest person, who just happens to be their waiter. Some people are just unrealistic in their demands, and expect the impossible. And of course, there will be a few customers out there that are just idiots, plain and simple.

The guys from Not Always Right have compiled a list of stories from times when customers got it very wrong indeed, with hilarious results! Scroll down below to check them out, and don’t forget to vote for your favorite!

I'm glad the caller got genuinely laughed at. Some people just deserve that as a response to their stupidity.

This really concerns me. Is there no such thing as explanation about these things given my gynaecologists, who prescribe it?!

Insecure people are everywhere. They like to be intolerant, too.

Actually, not all mammals have nipples. For example, male horses don't.

Disabled people do not need pity, and usually even not help, but respect.

Parents imposing sexist sterotypes on their own children are the worst.

If some people would get a slap on the left cheeck for everything stupid they say, and a slap on the right for every time they behave as an a*****e, you would not know which cheeck was more bruised.

I worked as a glass collector in a bar when I was 14. A man actually bit my a*s once when i was clearing his table, then his wife had the audacity to shout at me and blame me for 'encouraging him' because I was wearing tight pants.

It's sad to say that every woman has at least one story similar to this, and most, if not all, men. Sexism just sucks. Period.

The amount of stereotypes someone uses is inversely proportional to their level of education.

I get annoyed at people who don't ever tell off their children. Even if they are punching your legs nonstop. (happend to me)

Useless trivia: in France we use first names instead of NATO phonetic alphabet. B as in Brigitte, D as in David...

And this is why I never use those b******t terms at coffee shops. I either say Small/Med/Large, or I specify the size in ounces if they happen to have it listed. That way The size name is always accurate.

I am not sure how the age limit change will help though. People older than 21 can get angry as well.

Count yourself lucky. I used to deal with an elderly woman with Alzheimers who would come into reception, tell us about her appt, wait, pay, request a receipt etc.... all for in an organisation she had nothing to do with. We'd just do what she asked, make her a cup of tea while she was waiting, call her son and quietly refund him the $ she's paid. She was always very sweet, just confused.

Something similar happened to me, but the other way around. We went to a supermarket to get something twenty minutes before closing time and were told that they had already closed the registers... Not cool. It's not like we showed up one minute before closing.

Um... I think that's how it works when you compliment a baby. Or did the other costumer expect an answer from your daughter?
