Fuckwad Customers

Sometimes you wish people wouldn't buy your software, because then you wouldn't have to put up with bullshit like this:

I need this thing sent out today without question. If you cant pick up the phone and call me at an 800 number, I'm going to dispute the charges on the credit card and go with someone who will give me results.

I don't respond well to being threatened, I couldn't care less about his deadline, and for our cut of $59 I'm inclined to just tell him to go screw himself. We provide outstanding support, and to threaten us with a chargeback is ridiculous and childish.

In the end, gee, we'll suck it up and provide great service, as we always do. But dammit, sometimes a single customer can really just put a stain on the whole experience, I tell ya. >:-o
