Particularly those in the service industry, but anyone can answer! :)
I'll list things from various jobs I've had:
- If you must order pizza in dangerous weather, please tip your driver extra to show your gratitude.
- If your pizza is late, there's a 95% chance it isn't your driver's fault.
- If you're in a restaurant and request a certain seating, you are completely allowed to do so, but know that you may receive slower service as a result. Hosts do their best to seat you with the server who is the least busy at the moment, but if you request a table, we are not allowed to say no.
- For the record, if you insist on sitting in a booth rather than a table, please say so when you walk in the door, rather than waiting until I take you to a table and then asking to move.

I work 2 jobs so this may be mixed between the two.
I'm on my feet 8 hours a day so this can make my legs feel uncomfortable.
The customer's "not always right."
A lot of the bad jokes people tell like "It doesn't scan It must be free" are extremely lame and dumb and have been told a million+ times.
If you don't see a spot on the shelf for it, there isn't some magical "back room" where it's hiding. People act as if stores have some endless "back room" that spans thousands of miles where we secretly leave products for no apparent reason.
If we don't carry it, it's not our fault. Shop elsewhere, we don't care. Get over it and stop crying.
Threatening to shop at the competitor does absolutely nothing to strengthen whatever "argument" you have.
When you claim you "bought it here" before and we don't carry it, we know you're making that up or that you're delusional as to which stores you walk into to buy things.
Threatening to report me for doing my job is a waste of time.
As a customer, trying telling me what you think my job is and how I'm apparently supposed to do it just shows how unintelligent you are.
If you found something cheaper in another store, perhaps you should be shopping there instead,
Complaining that you're never coming back to the store again is good news for the employees you're whining to.
If you "don't know how this company stays in business" you clearly have no idea how businesses operate.
Please do not come into a break room of a store as a customer and start asking for help.1
