Employees who work in retail, fast food, customer service, and other people-oriented sectors are taught that the customer is king.

This sounds nice in theory. Many businesses train their employees to be courteous and respectful to clients as a result, and the reality is that people who pay for a product or service are usually right to ensure that they get value for their buck.

But like many rules, there are always exceptions. Some customers aren’t interested in getting good service, they may want miracles or “extras” that weren’t a part of the deal! That’s why one Twitter user asked people to discuss times the customer was totally wrong.
