Working with customers, you regularly end up in funny situations. Sometimes, it’s a combination of circumstances. In other cases, the requirements of customers puzzle you provoking an involuntary smile. We recommend taking such situations with humor. Don’t get angry, and don’t immediately start proving your point. Abstract your mind from the situation and imagine how it looks from the outside.
To help you with that, we have prepared a few selections of funny GIFs. Watch them, and you will surely recognize yourself or your colleagues in some animations.

Remember that managers, customers, and colleagues are just people.
