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 AM HAPPY BECAUSE Google paid each week on-line from home over $4000+ simply by operating merely on-line. Last month I actually have got paid $19523 simply by operating four weeks on-line. Its simply wonderful and my earnings ar currently far better than regular nine to five workplace job. This job is simply outstanding. attempt currently to induce additional money on-line from the small print here...... http://bit.ly/2mgS6mW

The guy was a jerk, but putting your hands on a patron is actually not legal. You can ask him to leave, but you can't legally eject him by force. So I don't buy this story at all, as any manager should've known this, and that the only thing to do at that point would have been to call the police. Only they have the right to drag someone out of their seat, as this story suggests.

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.
