So, to preface I work in my county's courthouse in the Clerk's office for Superior Court. I handle adult felonies which means I see, hear, and meet some of the worst of the worst on a daily basis. I am expected to appear to work in a suit every day for work.
So, keeping all that in mind you'd imagine we have to conduct ourselves in this office in a professional manner. I ROUTINELY hear one of the two ladies working at our front counter ask a member of the public who is looking for information on a loved one that was arrested for a felony "are they still locked up" instead of like "are they in custody at the jail", chewing gum... and the annoying farm animal mouth open type of chewing gum. One person in my department will routinely call out sick on Monday's with a "102 degree fever" and then show up on Tuesday seemingly just fine and answers the phone when the public calls like she's annoyed that she has to be bothered with it.
Am I asking for too much here? You know, cut the gum chewing, don't ask if someone is "locked up" and treat members of the public with the respect we would want them to treat us with?
tl;dr... I am 29 and working at the courthouse and people far older than me that should know better act like unprofessional twats on a routine basis.
And just so people have something fun to watch if they don't want to respond:
