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 often think, at first, that some stories on www.notalwaysright. com are fake, but many years ago I did work in a callcentre for a large part of a year and I believe all of them. It just mystifies me how some people manage to function, feed and and dress themselves and have an actual job.

Maybe the woman just gave birth not too long ago because I've read it and heard it and experienced it myself that right after birth many woman kinda literally lose it. You can't connect certain things, decisions become more complicated when before they were dumb-easy. It's 2 years after I gave birth and I finally got back to my old self but once in a while I do find myself trying to solve a simple problem that before was a piece of cake and now takes me a little longer to resolve. Maybe that's what happened to this woman.

I used to to roadside service (ran out of gas, I'm one of the people sent out with a gallon or 2), I got called for an unlock. It was a fairly busy road, so for safety, I walked to the passenger side. I noticed the tab for the lock was up, so I pulled the door open. I didn't even tools with me yet! They were embarrassed. I still had to charge an unlock service (felt bad, but it was policy).

I have seen a person smash their driver side window in with a brick (which is a lot harder than you'd think to do) before he realized that the passenger door was unlocked the entire time. This sounds like a blonde joke though.

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.
