Verizon (largest telecommunication company here) has a stand at most supermarkets here. While I was shopping for grocery I decided to stop by and pay the incompetent bloosuckers (but that is another rant). A gentleman was paying his bills and I was the only other customer.
While I am waiting for the clerk to finish with the gentleman there comes rushing a very well-dressed lady, reeking money from a kilometer and crosses in front of me and without a word hands her bill and a cheque to the clerk. Actually the clerk didn’t take it, just looked at the lady and said “please wait until I am finished with this customer”. She seemed in a hurry.
The clerk finishes and there comes the lady again, the clerk tells I am first and in a series of groans she tells me “I’ll go to the ATM, don’t let anyone take my place”. I look around, surely she must be speaking to her kid, or husband, or sex slave. She surely is not giving me orders in that tone of voice. But we were the only ones around. What a bitch!
Since I have three contracts with the telecommunication company from hell (that rant will come some day) I could pay all three in one go. But I wanted separate receipts as one of those is my business’. As the clerk was finishing with my first bill the bitch comes back again and tries to hand her her cheque again. I looked at her like I could melt her with my eyes and tell her that I am not done yet.
“What do you mean you are not done?”
“It means I have two other numbers to pay and I want separate receipts.”
She starts protesting, but the clerk tells her I am within my right as I can pay up to three bills in one go. I noticed she was doing everything much slower than usual (I always pay my bills there).
The bitch stormed out mumbling something.
Here is my curse: May Verizon’s be the very best service you get anywhere
