Sheer Rudeness!

Todays bad customer was an elderly lady who was extremely rude and ignorant. After giving me her name she started saying that she had received a load of ‘rubbish and crap’ and wanted to know what it was. She then started giving me a mouthful on how she couldn’t read it because it wasn’t in large print, and then proceeded for another 2 minutes with the rubbish theme.

After eventually getting her details and listening to another load of the ‘rubbish’ topic I was able to inform her, quite politely of course, that it wasn’t rubbish at all. It was her renewal letter. (If we hadn’t sent it she would definitely have something to moan about.)

Having politely informed her that she only needed to ask us for correspondence in large print, we could then make sure that it was larger in the future. She then indignantly stated that she was asking me now. She wasn’t. She was moaning because it wasn’t in large print. That is not a request. I could have ignored her. I didn’t. I changed the preference to large print.

I reminded her of the policy she had and gave her the renewal price. She was shouting that it was £400 and something. Again I very politely stated it was £48. She then started ranting and raving that she didn’t know where to send her cheque to. I reminded her that there was an envelope with the renewal, but I also gave her the address.

I have to say that quite a few elderly customers are extremely rude. Not all of them. Some are the exact opposite. But the minority seem to think that because they are pensioners they don’t need to be polite or ask for something to be done. After all how are we to know if something should be sent in large print if it is not requested? We are not mind readers.

People like this should know that they are likely to get better service if they are polite and friendly. When they are rude and abusive, like this customer, I can cut them off. I normally do. I don’t need to deal with this type of customer. I was just in a good mood today. She was a knob.

I'm an EFT practitioner, Matrix Reimprinter, Colour Therapist, Reiki Healer, Tarot Reader, And Astrologer. EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) was pioneered by Gary Craig, tapping on acupressure points to help a person heal themselves. It proved to be extremely effective and has been taken up by many people worldwide. The therapy was taken further by Karl Dawson who found it very effective to enable the client to access memories, many hidden, sometimes pre-birth. By accessing the memory in the matrix the client is able to identify the root of problem areas, and with the help of the practitioner address the initial cause of trauma, phobias, addictions, pain, etc. I also use colour therapy and reiki as separate therapies, but they also work well together. It's no coincidence that nurses wear blue - blue is a very calming and relaxing colour. Just the thing you need when recovering. Too much blue, however, can lead to withdrawal and in some cases depression. We've all heard the term: 'I'm having a blue day'. This is just one colour example. Reiki is a very relaxing complementary healing technique that originated in the East. It is used worldwide as an effective therapy. The practitioner allows universal energy to flow through them into the client, to help the client recover. The therapies mentioned above are complementary. In orders words they can be used alongside modern medical practices. I do not diagnose or prescribe. Diagnosis and medication is dealt with by your GP or hospital consultant. I've been reading the tarot and runes for over 30 years both in the UK and internationally. I'm also a member of the Astrological Association of Great Britain after studying astrology through the Mayo School of Astrology. I offer Natal Charts, Reports, and Readings. Please note: Tarot and astrology is for guidance only. The reading or report will not make decisions for you and should not be used as a substitute for professional advice.
