Looking for some advice on a job related issue. What's the best thing to say, to say a co-worker - though in this particular case it's not a co-worker, but a customer that I make deliveries to, who is always telling you of ways to do things different in such a manner as though to make you feel stupid and inadequate. Should I just say to let me concern myself with that? This is a rather confrontational person I'm dealing with.

Unfortunely as the saying goes, the customer is always right (even though they really aren't half of the time, if not more, and the last 15 years I have worked in retail) which means you have to be so, so careful with the way you interact with customers because with some, they will complain about the slightest things and the last thing you need is to get in trouble yourself.

I would speak to your management if it is affecting you so, so much.

I think I'd say something like 'Thanks, I'll bear that in mind' and then ignore him (i.e not do it that way).
