“No one is more insufferable than he who lacks basic courtesy.”― Bryant McGill
I was working at the mall Customer Service desk today when an expensively-dressed man bustled up to me. He was holding a phone in his hand and rudely asked where he could get it looked at.
I glanced at the phone and noticed it was an Android model from a carrier that doesn't have a store or kiosk in the mall. As I was trying to think of a polite way to tell him we wouldn't be able to help him, he looked at me like I was simpleminded and asked in an insulting voice where the Apple store was.
I wasn't going to be rude back to him, so I just smiled as I pointed him towards the Apple store. Without a thank you he turned on his heel and was on his way. I would have liked to have heard the conversation between him and the Apple associate who had to point out his mistake.
