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 worked as a glass collector in a bar when I was 14. A man actually bit my ass 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.

And this is why I never use those bullshit 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.

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.
