    *sigh*

    Customer service isn't for the faint of heart. I consider my current job a success because nobody's made a threat on my life or well-being (yet).

    The OP had this going for him, at least it wasn't a golf course where the old lady would have had some clubs to flail on his head. Hard for a 61 year old woman to throw a bowling ball far enough to get ya!

    Generally speaking, I try not to generalize because when one generalizes, one is generally wrong. I won't call anyone out for the sin of generalizations, but , I'm sure you know who's guilty.
    I don't think the woman's age had anything to do with the fact that she's a boor. It's been my experience that Boomers haven't cornered the market on boorish behavior.
    That said, I would have reacted the same way. No one should have to put up with kind of treatment.

    I threw a farmer out of an equipment company I was a foreman for years ago, for belittling one of my service men. The farmer said I'll have your job in five minutes. He went to the manager, and said he wanted me fired and explained what had happened to get him ejected. The boss (a former marine captain) replied while I may not agree with the tactics old TD employed, his overall strategy entirely meets with my approval. The guy had to think that over before it dawned on him the boss was telling him to beat it too! He left with his pickup tires burning up the driveway!

    I'd initially thought this thread would be about some HR suit walking out some faithful employee who'd been with the company 40 years, because her health issues have made her a liability to the underwriters

    I suppose we'll have to wait a while to see if justice prevails or something else. It's been my experience that some things never quite become "over." The little blurb I wrote about tossing the guy out of a business where I worked wasn't over for years, and would come up again at a different company later on. The odd thing is I really liked the guy, it was just that he was taking advantage of one of my guys who simply could not respond to him. The guy taking the tongue lashing was from a Nebraska farming community, and very shy. Once the farmer got going on verbally beating up his quarry he just wouldn't let go.

    Bravo on this point! You should have also pointed out the popularization of Disco, platform shoes, and polyester clothes (particularly the leisure suit).

    To be clear, I don't have a problem withher generation. I just like poking holes in anyone who demands respect or admiration based in some imaginary coincidental group they think they belong to.

    Sports! Glad those years are long past. At one point I ran the youth and adult leagues in my community, hundreds of teams, thousands of players and I played and coached. I could not go anywhere in town without someone stopping me to complain about a bad call, or their kid not playing enough. Every morning at work there would be misconduct forms and another person I had to displine.

    I even had a very difficult time getting my house finaled after a remodel because I had suspended the head of the building department from one of the leagues for his behavior.

    Some times some really good people can be really unpleasant in a competitive setting.

    People think just because they are old they can act as crazy as they really are and get away with anything. I don't have anytime for crazy old people especially old ladies. There should be laws against this type of thing. A lot of times if you tell them they just act crazier. You should be able to call the cops and let them deal with it.

    @WetBandit, she was just crushing on you.
    Many women don't know how tell a guy they like him.
    And they act aggressively for fear of rejection.
    Poor girl.
