    I think you did the right thing. I always say that if you raise your voice, you've lost the argument. In addition, she was a paying (if extremely irritating) customer.

    Here in the UK, people aren't quite so litigious and don't always resort to making public liability claims as a first resort. However, as someone who has worked in the insurance profession for 38 years, that is the general direction of travel as insurers are seen, wrongly, as a bottomless money pit.

    Keeping calm in the face of provocation is never easy. The best thing to do, I believe, is to remain polite, focused and calm. Never get into heated debates, make notes and have CCTV footage and witnesses who will corroborate what actually happened / what was said. It's difficult to argue against hard evidence.

    I once had an elderly lady argue over the phone with me about the fact my companies website did not allow her to be on her phone and the website at the same time. This was on a one phone line dial up connection back in the day. It took awhile to even get to that point because she kept telling me she was connected to the internet and other pages were working fine wasn't until she put her kid on that we got a real answer that she had dial up and obviously nothing would work while not connected, then she got back on the line and was mad about it telling us to fix it because she needs to make calls while using the site.

    That is awesome! I’m a web dev by day and I thought I had heard them all but that one is new. There is no winning that argument but definitely leaves you with a great tale to tell.

    Yes i find with hard to understand or rude people they usually are the same with all so not to treat it to personally. The nature of the beast i suppose.
