Is this a customer service job? Kind of goes with that type of job your going to have to deal with some rude / difficult customers. Been there before myself. Your boss and co workers are another story. They should be treating you with respect and in a professional manner. May want to start looking for a different job if it is that toxic of an environment. You can only control your own actions not anyone else's. Why are people saying you are an idiot? I can help you more if I know the general situation better.
Yep. Bottom of the barrel retail work here. Really not understanding why some have to interject these borderline "jokes" or constructs that serve to tear others down. It's not like they're angry, but it's more of a "If this is that, and this is here, then we should have x here, shouldn't we?" with a condescending smirk.
Like, one example was checking whether or not something was ordered, yet the system did not detect any previous orders, and I get this gunk from said customer about "Well, if it says there's no order history, then you didn't order it" with smart-assery dripping from his words. Pure yuck! Apparently, the system was wrong (not optimally configured), and the system would not detect things otherwise ordered either.
I mean, what now? Do I have to get logical fallacies pointed out to me or a logic lesson from everyone I stumble upon in life? It's bad enough that I already get berated for not being "in tune" with my surroundings, but lessons on logic? Forget it. And this mostly comes from the older crowd; and my parents as well. Very little hesitancy to label something as "stupid".
But the initial encounter was with a customer. They were asking if we had some product. I took a peek at said section, and stated that X company products are located here, so if it's not located there, then we most likely carry it no longer. And then, I get something like "Not a good answer, buddy" or some crap like that. Then, sensing his frustration, I stated "Didn't mean any rudeness there. If it's not in location X, then we don't carry it". And then, I get some pseudo-logical rebuttal like "Well, rudeness and not giving a good answers aren't mutually inclusive" or something like that. At that moment, I was done. I casually slinked to the restroom in the back, and cried. Not only am I getting called out repeatedly by others for being a clumsy clutz, apparently, I'm also an idiot that can't even use simple logic.
At that point forward, I began to tune out; deeply immerse myself in daydream land, and fantasies; no longer wanting to be acquainted with this gunk we call reality. I am able to jolt out of it when needed, but mostly, I stay in that space.
I can imagine things being far worse in a corporate environment; especially in those team meetings. One word uttered about something, and I'll likely be shut-down or ignored. Don't think I could handle working in such a position.
