The Verizon lady...

Called me a retard when she thought I was on hold. Uhm. And she was a supervisor.

I was calling to inquire about an over payment sent almost a month ago (not really sure how it happened but extra was sent and they said they couldn't credit the account, they had to mail it back.)

I actually called to make a payment. And the automated system wasn't working so it forwarded me. I made the payment and just asked if my check had been made out yet. She said that I shouldn't expect that back ( ) and to just forget about it. Uhm. No. So I asked again if the check had been made out, if not, no biggie. Just asking. Well she asked to put me on hold. AND THEN SHE CALLED ME A RETARD.

She said "what a f*^%ing retard.

I. Am. Livid.

I demanded a higher up right away. They profusely apologized and took care of my whole bill next month.

I am so floored still! I wasn't even asking anything ridiculous?!

sent from my iPhone. excuse all typos

Talk about someone who clearly does not like her job and may have just lost it.

WOW!I would be livid! We cancelled our Verizon contracts because customer service was always so rude, we now have Sprint and looooove them. I am so sorry you had that experience and I hope they reprimand her for her thoughtless behavior.

Re: The Verizon lady...

Oh my god, I know Verizon has the worst customer service ever! But this, this is pretty heinous. I would probably take it a step further and send an email to headquarters just to make sure I had all my bases covered. I've had a Verizon lady be a total a-hole to me on the phone and it's utterly infuriating.

Wow. I'm sorry, but I just laughed a little - not because it's funny, but because it's so astonishing.

Open mouth. Insert foot.

OMG, I would expect more than just one month's bill to be paid!! I don't know what I would expect, but definitely more than that. OMG. I can't even imagine. You have ever right to be livid!!

Uhh holy crapoli.

Are you kidding me?!?! It's nice they're taking care of your bill for a month but seriously, I would expect more than that. I am honestly in shock. I would have ripped those buttholes a new one!!!

Re: The Verizon lady...

I do this at work. I don't curse because, customer or not it is not professional and i would hate for my supervisor to hear me saying such stuff. I do however put a customer on hold or mute my phone and rant about their stupidity or bad attitude. It doesn't mean I don't like my job. It does mean that I don't like the disgusting customers I have to deal with throughout the day.
When people call and are nasty rude from the get go(not saying you were nasty OP) don't realize they are ruining their chances of getting what they want. Some of my accounts I DO have the ability to comp them for this or that but it is at my discretion. When I get told I need to close my mouth and listen with BOTH my ears, nope sorry, I'm not going to honor your expired coupon. It's expired. But call in and say you have a problem you would like me to help you resolve I would be happy to refund you the difference of the items you bought that are now on sale.
Not saying you were wrong for asking for a sup or getting comped for the reps rudeness. Just giving a little inside perspective from a customer service rep.
