The fact that many businesses have “the customer is always right” written in their mission and vision statements tells you how important they are. To explain in layman’s terms, if there are no customers to buy your product, you will generate no sales. This will result in you incurring costs upon costs, ultimately making losses upon losses, which will cause the business to shut down. So, it is always in the business’ good interest to satisfy their customers to the fullest, fulfill all their needs, and make them feel like kings and queens while they are shopping from your place, and even after they make the purchase through your amazing after-sale services.
Unfortunately, though, customers have taken this statement way too literally, and knowing that the business they are purchasing from will always consider them right, they have started to exploit this by creating a new statement of their own which is “if I am paying, I am always right”. You see how this evolution of the original statements makes you feel like the customers have put on a coat of entitlement. Customers now feel entitled to make a noise about everything. No matter what happens, there will now always exist at every store or shop in the world a set of customers who will complain about something. Even if it is them having to wait in line to get their shopping billed, whether it is them not being able to reach the top of the aisle to grab the big can of ketchup, and it could also be the tone of the cashier which for some reason may sound rude to them. Sometimes customers come running complaining about a product and wanting to return it. Valid, if the product is damaged or the customer was charged extra for it. No, these people return products for that purpose. They return it because they didn’t utilize it and one day they realize “oh wait, I totally forgot about this…let’s just return it because why not, get the money back and then buy something else that I may actually utilize”.
The problem with serving such clients is that if you don’t listen to them, they will use social media as a machine gun to obliterate the company you work in. So yes ladies and gentlemen, there is actually no way to win against these people. And you will only get infuriated if you keep making efforts to make them understand their complaints mean nothing. Please don’t waste your time on that.

Guys, I still cannot get over that complaint of a customer who said he comes at 4:30 every Saturday and they always close at 4:00. This is unfamiliar territory when it comes to entitlement, I actually cannot believe this person. I could not stop laughing at the idiotism.
That’s what this all is, pure dumbness for us to laugh at. People will just never learn and will continue to enjoy these moments for years and years to come. But then there is also a part of me that feels bad for the employees serving such customers. My respect for their high level of patience.
