Today, it's a customer who is so pissed off that he brought in his cell phone and went out of his way to call you over and play it for you.

Tomorrow, it's the local ABC/NBC/CBS affiliate hungry to fill their "Tonight, We Fight For You!" consumer protection segment asking you for response (five minutes before air so they can say you didn't respond when asked), because the next customer just went straight to them.
