A woman recently shared a story about an encounter with a customer at the DMV. She got her revenge on the customer when he continually disrespected her, but was her petty payback unprofessional? Here’s what she had to say:
The Woman Had The Job From Hell
“When I was young, I worked at the DMV in an attempt to crush my soul enough to join the corporate world. One of the only joys of being in that place was the occasional funny or cool license plate that randomly showed up.”
Everyone Wanted A Cool Plate
The woman explained that the license plates in her state were made up of two sets of three letters or numbers with a space in-between. Although these characters were randomly generated, this could lead to some amusing combinations.
Certain Combinations Stuck Out
Finding an interesting license plate was just about the only exciting thing that happened at the woman’s workplace. It wasn’t much, but it helped to make up for the rudeness of certain customers. But the woman was about to encounter a customer who would test her beyond her limit.
A Man Arrived At The DMV
“One day, a dude made it to the front of the Queue of Misery just as I finished up with a customer. I was about halfway down the line of stations, and I yelled the standard ‘I can help you down here!’ at him.”
The Man Refused To Come To Her
Things got off to a bad start when the man refused to come to the woman’s workstation. Instead, he wanted her to come to him. After some back and forth, the woman conceded defeat. But the drama was only just beginning.
The Man Kept Being Rude
The woman’s negative first impressions were proved to be correct when the man continued to cause trouble. Whenever she asked him for information, he snapped back with a sarcastic reply. She didn’t understand what was motivating him. Could he see that she was just doing her job?
The Woman Saw Her Chance
While she was processing the man’s forms, the woman noticed that the next available license code was one of the funny ones. She realized that the man had also seen this, and she could tell by his face that he desperately wanted it.
Karma Came Back To Bite The Man
The woman was sick and tired of the customer’s behavior. To even the score, she switched the exciting plate for a boring one. She could tell that the man was annoyed to be denied the cool license plate, but what could he do?
The Man Was Blindsided
When the man realized what was happening, he had no idea how to respond. The woman had put him in a difficult position. If he complained, he’d look petty. If he asked for a custom plate, she could charge him a fee. She had him on the ropes.
Was The Woman Unprofessional?
The woman had just been trying to do her job, and it was the man who had been rude. Although she’d sought revenge, she’d only done so because she’d been provoked. But should she have let his rudeness pass?
People Made Themselves Heard
One person said, “Absolute boss move to slip that plate from the top to the bottom of the stack,” while another added, “This reminds me why it’s always wise to be nice to whoever is helping you.”
Another person pointed out that the man simply reaped what he had sown: “Actions have consequences. That’s something that jerks never seem to learn.”
