In my experience, the men usually only get really ugly with other men. We had one call my former boss a "pussy coward faggot shitbag" at the top of his lungs when my boss threw him out of the store and refused to go outside and fight.
One kept calling the store to tell me he was going to "beat the shit" out of the pharmacist. Then he'd hang up. He called at least three times. I was salivating with anticipation.
Inasmuch as everyone would like to beat the shit out of that particular pharmacist, I was really hoping he would.
That night, right at closing, I noticed a car in the parking lot. (I not only walk the store before closing, I count cars as well so I know how many drivers are in the store - sometimes there are walkers, but not many) I thought, GREAT! He's here to beat up R. Now - do I call the police or sell tickets?
Sadly, it was just one of the new associates' father, waiting to pick her up.
To be fair, one woman threated to beat ME up when her credit card payment was turned down for $890 worth of narcs.
I see hundreds upon hundreds of person every week; the MAJORITY are, quite ungracious, demanding, rude, impatient and boorish, with more women exhibiting that behavior than me BUT if you go to Circuit City, where more MEN shop, you can hear them screaming as well.
Trust me on this one. I spent three hellish months doing Customer Service at Circus Shitty. We DID have to call the police on two occasions.
