Have you worked retail? You might be amused by a new book called Hello Do You Work Here?, a collection of illustrated true stories about crazy-making customers.
Suvudu’s Matt Staggs recommends it, and says its “stories of suicidal cat ladies, lecherous fast food customers, conspiracy-minded copy store clients, sadistic bosses and alcoholic coworkers will strike a chord with anyone who has ever done a stint in customer service, and be a real eye opener into the particular despondence of that world for anyone who hasn’t.”
The website for the book has a few sample pages if you’d rather get your obnoxious customer fix for free. Also, why aren’t these grapes labeled fat-free!?!?1!
