Fecking cyclists, skaters, skateboarders, etc., on the pavements. This is not taboo in Spain but it should be.

At traffic calming, a clown decides to nip through, though you have priority. Five more follow the ****. :seething:

 

I'm with you - I hope they tripped over their big floppy feet.

 

While we're at it, I also hate metaphors :verymad:

In Marcos Pool Hall, overheard someone saying this:

 

"We send aid to third-world countries, making them first-world countries and make us a third-world county"

Well I could've called them arseholes, but that might have been a bit too metaphorical for you too. :D

People who steal your toast out the conveyor belt toaster thing when you are having a buffet breakfast at a hotel.

 

Sub-human scum.

That's never happened to me but I can imagine how raging I'd be if it did. I hope you retaliated with a greener in the corn flakes.

Wait til you get your toast then turn the thermostat all the way down so everyone else has to put their toast through two or three times :smug:

If I knew how to insert a facepalm here i'd do it. I'm a receptionist , don't want to say where I work (not a doctors surgery) and wish i could let you guys shadow me for a week and i'm sure you'd appreciate how difficult it can be in dealing with clients or customers who can often be really rude when receptionists are only doing their job. Rude people often shoot the messenger (me!) when they're unhappy with a situation. As a receptionist i treat people with respect but often don't get that back as some don't like the rules/situation they find themselves in so i get the abuse. Next time you get angry at a receptionist have a think before you give her grief, she doesn't make the rules. If you do find a receptionist's attitude to be bad bring this to the attention of the practise manager.

 

Sexist imho

We've done this before. Receptionists at doctors are brutal and, in my experience, usually ignorant. That's across two surgeries.

 

Any public facing job you're going to meet idiots. No need to take that out on everyone though.

I've been going to the same doctors surgery for 22 years and have seen a lot of receptionist come and go. Apart from one soor faced female (who wasn't unhelpful or a bitch) I've never found any of them to be ignorant. And I agree with the no need to take it out on everyone comment. I've often been verbally abused by a client when I've told them there is no appointments on the day they want or that they'll have a wait to be seen, and it's not easy when that's been done in a busy waiting room, when you have a line of people waiting to be seen ,your face is red with embarrassment with the humiliation, your hearts pounding in your chest and you cant hold a pen properly as your hands are shaking so much. It's hard to smile at the next person you deal with but I do because the decent people far outweigh the arseholes.

Susan presuming that you get more hassle working in Dr's surgery than you do in a busy city centre bar or hospitality etc...where you are paid less/by the hour/work overtime for free and have to put a smiling face on for the customers sometimes in the threat of physical violence.

 

But I come in and say, "hello, I have an appointment at 10:30" and they are absolute witches about it, without fail.

Scott I worked as a hotel receptionist for years and could count on the one hand the number of abusive people I had to deal with. The clients who use doctors surgeries (and in a similar environment) are a different kettle of fish altogether and I totally get that. Most are either ill or stressed and seem to have a very short fuse when they don't get what they want. Receptionists are often the ones who get their anger. Genuine question - what do they say or do to you that turns them into a witch?

Don't you know they are busy? Because a Dr asked them to file a prescription and they also have to deal with someone coming through the door. That's two things they have to action at the same time and the stress must be taken out on innocent bystanders.

 

How Dr's receptionists percieve their own job:

Reality:

:lol: In my doctors surgery they have a new check yourself in system that bypasses the reception team. It's a small screen that's fixed o the wall and you just tap in your details and this lets the doctor know your in. That would suit you eh! Imagine - no witches to deal with and the witches would have no arseholes to deal with - win win!!

'Ji' is horrendous. Instantly makes me think the person is an imbecile. It's quite a Scottish trait.

I've never dealt with a male receptionist in a doctors surgery Ribble, have you?

 

No but then i've never set foot inside a GP's surgery in over 15 years. Are you saying it's a female only job?

This isn't the desired maternal attitude.

I think you'll find that treating people with respect is the desired maternal attitude.

Maybe you're in the wrong job then?

 

Just a thought...

Question for you Cigaro- If you had a bad meal in a restaurant would you be verbally abusive to the waiter? If you bought a shirt that was damaged from a shop would you verbally abuse the sales assistant? If you were over charged at the check out for an item would you verbally abuse the check out operator? My point is that Receptionists only do their job, if they cant give you an appointment on the day you want or advise you that you'll have to wait to be seen and you're not happy with that why be abusive to her? Put any complaints you have about her in writing to the practise manager. We don't often get complaints in my work but when we do we don't see that as a negative - it's information that the clients not happy and work out what can we do to make the situation better for them.

The admin side is a piece of cake, rude people make it a difficult job imo

Didn't encounter any rudeness, maybe it was just the surgery I was in though.

 

As an aside, 'Jay'.

I've never abused a receptionist for saying there's no appointments. :lol: that's not my issue with them. My issue is their seemingly consistent ignorance. It's not their job to continue their conversation rather than speak to the 'client', nor is it their job to completely ignore the 'client' when they approach the desk.

All of your examples are problems with products that the person in question has no control over. A receptionist has control over their attitude.

So next time you're pissed off at the receptionists attitude do something about it. Just a thought.........

You should probably see a doctor, they may be able to give you something for the anxiety!

Got to the gym this morning to find it was closed. :muggy:

 

It used to be every fourth Monday, now they've decided to make it every two. Seriously, what kind of bullshit is that? It's supposed to be a 24 hour gym FFS.
