Are people getting dumber, or is it just me that has become tired of people?
I work at a ferry line in customer service and also selling tickets etc. Every day i have hundreds of encounters with people from all of Europe. I have never had to work with people before since i worked in different warehouses etc.

And now to my question; or my concern.

People that come here don't have ANY idea of what they are doing. They don't greet me, and are often very rude. When i greet them and what they would like, they just stare at me. So i have to SUGGEST to them what i think they would like to have. I mean, we sell tickets to Germany. And they go for about 120 Euros one way. If you are about to go for a vacation, one would think that you check that stuff up BEFORE you leave?

And the strangest thing is that they get pissed off at ME. I don't set the prices. And if a boat breaks down or it's delayed. It's my fault of course. Everyday people yell at me and calling me names just because i try to explain to them why the prices are high or why the boat isn't there yet.

There are many more stories about people acting strange, i just wanted you to get the general idea of what i mean with this.

I just wonder, have you guys the same experience with people that i have? Or do i just have bad luck all with the general public all the time?

If you have any more questions, please ask.

When you work with the public for even a short time, you start to see right away why the Elite hate us so much.
The average person walking is a programmed drone, when taken out of their paradigm, they are totally worthless.

The herd is about to be culled.

There's nothing like a job dealing with people to really make you want to have nothing to do with people.

Exactly! Luckily i have good people around at work, but still. It's sucking so much energy from me. If it wasn't for the good money i would have walked. I think i will manage, i've had worse.

I have another story for you guys, and this is one the stupidest things that have happened here during my time here.

People that travel here often can buy a card that gives you cheaper trips and a designated lane so you can board your car first. But that only works if you are here at least 10 minutes before embarkation.

One guy came after embarkation and just stopped his car next to guy who is loading the boat and starts a huge rant. He goes on and on about how bad it is that he couldn't be in the designated lane. After all, he is a frequent traveller! *sigh* Then the loading guy says, very sarcasticly, "Well, we could unload the boat and then let you through!" The customer thinks it's a great idea, and when he finds out he was joking he gets so angry that he just burns away screaming profanities.

Working out is a way of letting anger out. I also watch football games with my local team, so 2-3 time a months i can act like a caveman for 105 minutes.

I used to work with the public for many years. I used it
as an opportunity to hone my skills at sensing vibes.
It would get that I could pick up hostility or a positive vibe as soon as they walked in the door.
The better you get at it the more you are in control.
Believe it or not, sometimes just the right response really changes their attitude, especially if you have a sense of humor.
It is a skill that could serve you well.

I have tried it many times, but most people doesn't get humor. Even when they are short of money i say to them, "well, that's unlucky. But today i'm working and i will give you 10% off. How about that?" Then they just look at me like i'm stupid and burns off without even thanking me.

Only been there twice, so i can't say anything about that. But here in Sweden i think it's about the same. I noticed it's mostly middle aged women that are the worst. Younger people (18-30) are always polite and doesn't complain.

It has been this way for a long time. I worked at gas stations for 15 years. I could tell you some strange tales of anguish and depravity.

I used to start my training of new employees with this, "The first thing you must realize is ... The costumer is always wrong." lol

Most of the time people do not know what the hell they are doing. It's very draining. Good humor helps a lot. Good music is always soothing too. Just watch and learn. I am fond of telling folks, " If you really want to get to know your fellow man, take a low costumer service job for about ten years." You will be wise beyond your years.

It's gotten worse with the spread of smartphones. Now everyone just has their head down and they are tapping away, with their earphones on listening to music constantly. People can't even interact as humans in public anymore...just nods and grunts...forget about eye-contact or smiles.

When people say the headline you created, all I can think is...... that your dumb as door nails to be put in that position. People are not stupid for the most part. Your simply judgemental and peeved at people for no good reason. Obviously your no rocket scientist. Otherwise you wouldn't hold such a slave wage job. You are the one that needs improvement.

To you everything in your daily ritual seems like it should be common knowledge because it is so ingrained in the majority of your experiences. To them it is most often new, and since it is human, subject to complete randomness in custom, add on to that the fact that they are traveling implies they are in some sort of desparation, making them irritable.

Like i said a little further up, i only have this job so i have an extra income until my own company starts making more money. And i wouldn't call it slave wage since the minimum wage in Sweden is quite high. And it's not a minimum wage job.
