You may not remember what order you learned them in or what source specifically, and it may be in your own words, but you can't take credit, paraphrase it, and site experience as the only reference. I have seen this same type of stuff elsewhere. You didn't come up with it.
    It's what I have learned from 20 years in the hotel industry and hospitality business. This is not a copy and paste quote. This is what every person in the customer service sector has to know in order to handle guest complaints. I've worked for the Four Seasons Resorts and other top brand hotel chains. You bring nothing to the table but accusations.

    This is the third forum that you have questioned my post. This is my life long training talking, and not your pathetic detective skills has no merit or proof that it is paraphrased. Get a life and contribute to a thread and stop questioning others that contribute.

    Well you can only put up with so much. This has been an issue at all of the retail-like businesses that I have worked in, and I am sure that it is talked about everywhere. We all know the customer is always right, but we also all know that that is just a saying and sometimes the customer is the dumbest person alive. It is a decision that must be made though, and sometimes the ties must be severed, as you say. Thanks for sharing.

    Sounds about right. Thank for summing it up for us. It is certainly not an easy thing to do all of the time, but I do think that the more you can really isolate it like this, and look at this, the more you can just see it as "the reaction" that you need to have. Doesn't matter how you feel, or how upset, the reaction you need to have, is the ones above. It is a guideline, then, for all workers to follow. Again, easier said than done, but good to see simplified. Thanks again.

    Well, it really is true that the customer is always right and that sometimes they might not be too right about their opinions, however, the best way to deal with this kind of customers is to do what they request you to do in order to get to the bottom of the problem and eventually, try to fix it as soon as possible, it might be a hard thing to do, but I can not really think of any better way to deal with them, that's my opinion though.

    Yup. We put up with as much as we can and I would say I only allow either myself or our employees to deny a sale instead of pushing for it when it crosses the line from being just difficult onto being abusive. So far we haven't had many of these situations thankfully and even some of the angry customers were at least still reasonable enough in some ways but I do allow denial of sale because I know someday it might come up.

    There are many situations actually. If you are an employee who wants to keep a job you will go by that rule and bite your tongue every now and again. If you do not want to put up with this you just go and loose it along with your job
