Why are govt workers so rude? I called the copyright office and after waiting 30 minutes to speak to someone, the lady was extremely rude! Not even friendly in answering my questions, very condescending, and totally put off and uninterested in answering my questions. And I was very polite and friendly! I was confused about something and was calling for information.

Just had to vent! :mad:

I've dealt with government employees in many different countries and I find them more customer oriented than private enterprise, generally speaking. I will gladly walk across the street and spend a little bit more if I get bad service. The government of course, has a lock on some services and we are forced in dealing with them. You will find rude employees everywhere. The question is who takes the time to write to the employer to complain about this so they can rectify this and also writes to reward exemplary service.


My life is like one big RAW file....way too much post processing needed.

Like any business, write down the name of the person with whom you were speaking and write to the head of the agency and let them know how they are dealing with their customers. Agencies are under pressure to save money and it helps to know who should be cut when the funding gets slashed.

Who knows, bad day - it's not a government employee thing, dealt with plenty of them and can only remember one off the top of my head that was rude on the phone. However, can remember plenty of private employees that were a lot ruder - but deal with them a LOT more. If it concerns you that much ask to speak to a supervisor and be done with it.
