Customer service has to be one of the most under-appreciated roles out there in retail and ecommerce. I remember working for a major book retailer and another time on phone support, constantly being heckled and treated like scum. With social media it seems like there is a never ending stream of unhappy individuals. 

 

Two pieces of advice I received that really helped me were

  1. Overwhelm them with kindness
  2. Do not feed the troll - some people just want to stir the pot
