This is a question Customers from Hell

The customer is always right. And yet, as 'listentomyopinion' writes, this is utter bollocks.

Tell us of the customers who were wrong, wrong, wrong but you still had to smile at (if only to take their money.)

This is
the best post I have ever read on this website.

I've worked for a fairly medium-sized North-East bookmaker* and know exactly where you're coming from, the only difference is I had to actually meet the cunts in question. All the same problems though. There is just so much here that I agree with.

My many experiences include my favourite. "Oooh I'll just have a daft bet on the football. 36p on Chelsea to beat Wigan." These were often the same customers who complained when they got little back, as in their mind, if you win a bet, you're rich beyond your wildest dreams. Another one I got was "check that again please, there should be loads more off this. 3 winners and a place!" In this case, the bet was normally a fucking 2p EW Lucky 15 with odds no longer than about 3/1. I honestly don't know where they find these twats.

I especially agree with the "Ladbrokes are giving 3/1 on this" part, the amount of times I heard that was unreal as we were quite a small bookmaker in comparison to the giants. If they want Ladbrokes prices, they can fuck off to Ladbrokes for all I care, it matters not one bit to me.

I'm all annoyed now thinking about how much I fucking hate nearly all people that bet. I think I could write almost as much in my reply as you did in the actual post there's that much to say about the generally thick-as-pig-shit betting public.

Edit: sorry forgot the *click*.

*Fucking management were a bunch of cunts too. "You took 3/1 on this £1 bet Dave, the price was actually 2/1 so you were 4 seconds late." ARRRRGGGHHHH!!
