    -Talked to an operator to ask a simple question that I couldn't find the answer to on their website.

    -Was met with an extremely rude, condescending older man who kept interrupting me.

    -I wanted to go the fuck off on him for being such a dickhole, but I kept my cool. I understand it's probably a shitty job having to answer phone calls and the same questions over all day, but I won't stand for complete disrespect.

    -So when I finally managed to get my question answered, I politely told him that I appreciate his help but that for future customers he might try and be a little less rude and a little more kind. He took it surprisingly well.

    yeah those people know how to be assholes. At the Md Motor Vehicle Administration they have like 20 cops on each floor and hif you raise your voice they hand you back your papers and two state cops escort you from the building. I think they had a shooting at one of their offices a few years back.

    Thanks. :)
    I've been through far too many similar situations where I either don't say anything or I get just as nasty back, so finding a balance was refreshing.

    Good job, Lace. I wouldn't have been so considerate but acknowledge we could all really use a little more of your zen in this rat race world.

    Isn't it their job to be assholes?

    It's like gas station attendants... they know that you're gonna get your gas and ciggs no matter what, so they take advantage :)

    Good job on the keepin' your cool.

    You did what Samuel L. Jackson would do, until they fuck with him too much, then he would have shot them.

    You damn right.

    Being well balanced and responding to rudeness with a cool head shows a tremendous level of self-discipline that many, many people never attain.

    Blowing up does nothing besides stress you more... it doesn't help a situation, it isn't going to inspire an offending party to go one bit out of their way to accommodate you. The only thing flying off the handle can accomplish is to communicate to a complete asshole that he or she has succeeded in pushing your buttons. It can only encourage them to continue doing so. To an asshat nothing can quite match the frustration of realizing that the person (s)he's trying to aggravate hasn't been the least bit bothered.

    people wonder why people's licenses always have frowning faces..... its probably due to the fact that the dmv is full of gloomy people. they are never happy to see you or wait on you.....
