The customer isn't always right...

Susie over at Practical Penumbra has a little contest going. It's simple, just relate your worst first hand customer experience. Leave your entries in her comments. Or, if you don't have any of your own, just have a chuckle at what's already there.

My entry... well, I'll put it in the extended entry.

One of my jobs in the family business involves waiting on customers at our automated car wash. This is a conveyor wash which involves guiding the customer onto the track and stopping them at a specific spot. There have been many poor drivers who don't listen to the shouted directions, but usually you can get them on the track with out too much difficulty.

But the absolute worst customer I had pulled up on a very busy day and apparently thought that we should take the car through for him. So he simply got out of his car with the engine running and with it still left in drive.

I had to chase it down the car wash tunnel, dive into the open door, and put it into nuetral before it hit the car in front of it. Almost broke both of my legs as they were half out the door as I was dragged through the car wash.

Just a hint that you might want to copy that and leave it in the comments over on Practical Penumbra as I personally know one of the judges is really a stickler for people following directions.

Actually, I copied it from the entry I put in Susie's comments.
