I know exactly what you mean.

Is there anyone on the student room who works in a shop, supermarket, restaurant etc and had really annoying customers.
I work in mcdonalds and we have had our fair share. One threatened to throw a brick with a bacon and egg mcmuffin selotaped to it through the window because he had apparently had a burnt one in the past and apparently the one he had on this occasion was burnt too (it wasnt at all) He never did throw it through the window.
I work in a supermarket, they're like Asda except not as cheap and our uniform is blue, lets call it, Resco...
The customers, for the most part, are normally dead on but you get the occasional odd-ball.
There are a few things that really get me fuming at work, lol!
1) Customers who arrive in the shop to do all their groceries 5 minutes before closing time.
2) Customers who, when asked if they have bags, reply "Yes I need bags"...that's not what I asked!
3) Customers who arrive in and there is like a family of say 4...A mum, dad and two kids. The mum starts to empty the trolley and leaves to pack the bags, the two kids who btw are too small to reach the items at the bottem of the trolley try to empty it out, and the dad, just stands there doing nothing, cos hes the one with the money...makes everything soooo sloowwww. (He should help)

guy tried to short change me £20 on a £400 bet. Seeing as he wanted the slip asap before I could count the money i've become VERY suspicious, thinking he was trying to get a £20 discount on his bet (if your putting £400 on the nose of a horse then you are usually checking the amount 5 times prior to giving it to the cashier anyway!). So i've swiped the notes with the fake note pen and half have come up darker than the rest. Voided his bet. Legally I have to retain the money if it is fake, and I wasn't 100% so i've called the police and got them checked out. Was on my own at the time too. Didn't fancy holding £380 of fake notes when he was getting aggressive with me. Turns out the notes were fine, but had he just let me count the money without badgering me or had he paid the correct amount I wouldn't have had a reason to think I was getting done by this guy.
This is after being swore at by some customer because I Id'd him.... Customers trying to void their national bet and put it on the same horse because the price is bigger now.... customers smoking in the shop.... kids trying to enter the shop... ARRRGH
