Pissed off day #2
Ugh! I'm USUALLY not b*tchy whatsoever. I mean to strangers, I'm quiet and polite. But today or rather just minutes ago, I was at the post office dropping off 3 packages to get them shipped off internationally. I pre-paid for 2 already and just need to pay for one of them. So I see this cranky, old, past middle-aged woman who I saw working yesterday at the post office, she was impolite and rude yesterday but worst today. I was shipping a package to Malaysia and my buyer just gave me her full address in which I don't even know what part of the address is the city and what's the street name, so I thought.. Well ok, I'll just pay for the postage at the post office. I was expecting some sort of slip I have to write on and stick it on the package to ship it off, but apparently I don't. Well I'm only experienced with pre-paid shipping, so I'll just blame myself for my ignorance. So I was holding a piece of line paper with the printed address on there. This piece of paper was uncut A4 paper - since I wasn't expecting to stick it on. I told her I needed to pay for the one package I have left and I need it shipped off to Malaysia. She saw that there was no label on there and took my sheet and she gives me this attitude and said to me (in these exact words) "Well you're lucky there's no line behind you". Her tone of voice just disgusted me. Then she starts cutting the address out and sticking it on the package. So whatever, I'm forgiving, I just ignored that part - for most people, I think they would have slapped her face and left. Anyways, I asked her to send the unpaid package as a Light Packet. But did she do it? No. Why? I have no idea, because I have measured the exact measurements of the package to be able to ship it off as a Light Packet (the cheapest method of international shipping). She just blew me off with a "No, it has to be a Small Packet." So then I was just pissed off at this point, I just walked off with my package. Now I just wish I've asked to see her superior. I mean with this sort of customer service, I think she deserves to be fired. Especially in this disastrous economy. This is NOT the first time I've dealt with her and EVERY TIME, she's been this rude. Sometimes, some people just need to learn their lesson the hard way. I seriously hate dealing with rude people, especially when THEY are the ones providing service and are getting paid to do their job.
