For a person struggling with anxiety, working in a customer service job can be a bit of a minefield. You can have hundreds of successful social interactions with strangers every single day, and it only takes one of them to go wrong before you start to doubt yourself.

I'm a visual editor at Bored Panda. I kickstart my day with a mug of coffee bigger than my head, ready to tackle Photoshop. I navigate through the digital jungle with finesse, fueled by bamboo breaks and caffeine kicks. When the workday winds down, you might catch me devouring bamboo snacks while binging on the latest TV show, gaming or I could be out in nature, soaking up the tranquility and communing with my inner panda.

Honestly some people will never be happy. There are also people who seem to get meaner the nicer you are to them. Doing something like this, where the HAVE to know that it's kind of a 'screw you're to them, but you're not being rude so they can't really report you- it's amazing. Hopefully it at least somewhat sinks in and he'll think more about what he says to people... probably not though.

I'd go so far as to say that working in customer service can actually be the cause anxiety. It feels like people forget that those in customer service are even humans sometimes.

Why is this a story? Anxiety problems or not. Get over it and move on. This encounter with one demented, rude , customer, is not even worth remembering.
