You’re mature, experienced, and often have a very short fuse for delays, inefficiency, excuses, back talk and just plain discourtesy. Here are ways to take a stand to fight back with appropriate Ω߶§ words to: 

Hotel clerk: That price is outrageous. I don’t want to buy the ƒ¶§≠ place, just sleep here for a couple of hours.

Taxi driver: I didn’t say go the scenic route to get me here. You have a choice. Do you want me to pay half of the §Ωåß rip-off charge or none at all?

Rude waiter: You’ve been snide, slow and stupid. The only tip you’ll get from me is: find another ƒå®´∑ line of work.

Airline counter clerk: Just get me on that  ƒ¥®∂ flight, and don’t call me dearie, sweetie or honey. I’m old enough to be your parent, and ƒ∆¥®∂√ thankful I’m not.

Maitré de: Turn down that §¶∆ø rock music and turn up the lights. It’s bad enough trying to eat this ∫¶≤µ overpriced meal in the dark.

Baggage handler: I suspect you flunked remedial reading class, because the label on my √∫©ƒ suitcase says Boston, not Botswana. Last time you sent my bag marked Philadelphia to the Philippines.
Airport security guard: It must be nice for a pervert like you to have a job where you get your ∫¥¶∞ jollies by groping little old ladies.

Flight attendant: All right, I know you’re now charging extra for ¶§∆¥Ωß blankets, pillows, snacks and coffee. But I resent the ∫∂£œå∑Ω coin-operated toilet.
