MINIKRITIKA | A. J. Adams - The customer is not always right

Retailers, restaurants, and tech support providers believe service is king, but in The Customer Is Not Always Right, A.J. Adams proves that customers will do anything they can to put that motto to the test.

Readers get a collection of insights and stories from the popular Web site The book and site showcase customer-relations horror stories everyone can relate to. No matter what side of the counter you're on, there are hilarious tales about everything that can go wrong between the customer and retail or service provider. Whether it's a confrontation in the drive-through over not enough fries or arguing over a one-cent price difference on milk, this book proves the principle of „the customer is always right” can be dead wrong.

From groaning, to intense complaining, to situations that leave workers asking, „Are you serious?,” readers will enjoy these hilarious tales of customers gone wrong.

Vannak benne vicces és kevésbé vicces történetek. Most már csak azért is szeretnék a kereskedelemben dolgozni, hogy megtudjam, tényleg vannak-e ilyenek, vagy csak fikció ez a sok rémtörténet. :D
