comp.sys.gateway.really-bad-attitude ...

the first call is by another technician. don't mind his atrocious spelling, he got reamed by this jerk of a customer too, i feel for him.

the call i took is in the second lj-cut. note the eerily similar pattern the two calls have. almost like this guy gets his rocks off on abusing technicians. sad, really.

i should add that he is the first person i have said that i would hang up on for abuse, ever; he was by far the worst customer i have ever had. just why do i put up with this shit?

(initial call):

I let him know it was only an option and he could send it him self.
He told he he would send it without insureance.

-----Sun Jun 13 14:30:20 2004..EUS078291-----
When I told him I would be ending the call as it was no longer productive.
He told me
"To go fduck my mother" and that I was "a no good fucking skum"
I ended the call.

(second call, new activity, created by yours truly):
c- called in again for service, did not want to pay charges.

a- after i informed him that that was his option, or be responsible for
insurance and shipping and packing, he AGAIN became abusive (see parent sr
for more gory details). he didn't want to pay, said he was going to write
a letter to 610 GW drive detailing all of his "poor service" (actually, he
should write about his own bad attitude).

after i explained that he could do that but that those were his two options
for service, he called me an asshole. i warned him that if he continued
verbal abuse that i could and would hang up (as per gateway policy). this angered him and he told
me the following: "stick your dick in your mother's mouth, you asshole".
i considered asking him if he kissed his mother with his mouth, but thought
the better of it.

r- he hung up on me, anyhow.

(crossposted to customers_suck, techsupport, and my journal)

edit: oh it gets BETTER. he called in FIVE MORE TIMES after he called me.
edit: because i am paranoid, i removed the customer's contact info from the post.

(third call)
A: Customer wants to send system in for service. I asked him what address
he wanted to have this shipped back to. He continually interrupted me and
was extremely vulgar. He would not let me give him the address to ship the
system in to. When I started to give him the address he kept interrupting
and was verbally abusive. I asked him multiple times to refrain from
vulgarity and from verbal abuse. He continued to persist so I told him I
would have to disconnect if he continued. Kept at it so I disconnected the

times to refrain from vulgarity and verbal abuse
