Customers who refuse to leave store after closing Complaint - Rude, self-entitled customers
To those customers who enter a store three minutes prior to closing:
Since I have been accused of being excessively verbose, and since most of you will fail to understand vocabulary beyond that of a six year old, please allow me to get straight to the point.
It is RUDE, SELF CENTERED and OFFENSIVE to the extreme when you saunter into a store at closing and subsequently want to have in-depth discussions with staff (some of whom have worked 12 hours that day)about HDTV or, worse yet, proceed to the Customer Service desk to scream about something you could have screamed about earlier if only you had planned your day better. To listen to customers' excuses as to why the posted store hours of operation do not apply to them, one would simply be amazed at how many:
1. just got out of the hospital after being at death's door for three months
2. work seven days a week for 12 hours each day and 9:08pm is the only time s/he can come in to shop for a new wireless carrier
3. just came back from burying their beloved _________ (fill in the blank)
4. don't give a d*mn and derive great pleasure from seeing underpaid, overworked retail professionals work even harder and later because, as we know, "the customer is always right"
Many stores feel that to make a closing announcement is boorish. Refusing to leave a store after closing is more so. Not so ironically, the manager who made that rule in our store not only lacks true mannners but intelligence as well. He of all persons should know that most people think only of themselves and care nothing about those who try hard to assist them as long as they have achieved their objective.
Since most customers have neither a brain or a clue, and would gladly stay until 10:30 pm or later in a store which closes at 9:00 pm, please allow me to state what I wish I could tell all you self-important little @*#!@!!!!!:
"It's 9:00. You need to get the @**# OUT OF THE STORE!!!!"
Thank you for your consideration,
