A 1%'er went off on my daughter today: "I am a medical field executive and I drive a Lexus.."
She is an asst manager at our local movie theater and often takes calls from customers who wish to voice their complaints/concerns.
She took a call from a guy who wanted to tell her how upset he was about people's cell phones being used during movies..ok, fine, valid concern (though, he was not in the theater at the time, he called up to complain).
She listened to him and said, you know, please come out and tell us if you are in a theater and someone does that, we will tell them to stop or leave". He kept going on and on, telling her how bothersome it is to "leave the movie, miss parts of it, find someone to tell.."
She again said that they will try to quickly resolve any problems he has if he is at the theater and has problems.
He then went all 1 percent on her: "I am an executive in the medical field, I drive a Lexus, I shouldn't be having to put up with this...you all should have cell phone jammers in the theater so people can't use their cell phones, I want to talk to a manager!"
My daughter: "sir, I am a manager"
Guy: "Don't get arrogant with me...."
She wanted to reach thru the phone and slap him. Not because he didn't have a valid concern about cell phone disturbances but because of his whole "I drive a Lexus and shouldn't have to..." bullshit.
