Yes, yes and yes - to everything you just said in this comment. If you’re in the UK and are paying 9 thousand per year (not sure about fees elsewhere) you are paying for this guidance. It would be stupid not to maximise what you can get from it. No question is too small or stupid and your tutor knows this.

A few years ago I was looking after a baby who was probably around 8 months old. I’d babysat this kid many times before and it seemed that as soon as his parents left, he’d do a poo and I’d have to change the nappy. Once, it had been a few hours and he hadn’t done a poo so I thought I’d gotten lucky. I was watching tv and there was five minutes left of an episode. I heard the baby poo before I’d smelt it. I decided that we’d wait for the episode to end so I sat him in front of me on the rug. Later, I picked him up to take him to the changing area and I saw a puddle of green gloop on the rug. My heart sunk. The poo had leaked through the nappy, and when I’d picked up the baby without looking, it had gotten on to my trousers too. The poo was so far up his back that I had no choice but to bathe him. So I ran upstairs, took my poo-stained trousers off, put him in the bath, washed him, abandoned my trousers, clothed him and the ran downstairs, baby-in-tow, to scrub the rug. With the rug clean, I ran back upstairs, cleaned my trousers, wore my gym trousers and went back downstairs. The parents returned just moments after. Lesson learnt: if you hear the baby poo before you smell it, it’s a code red situation.
Yes, trash young girls about the clothes they wear. This is what we’re missing in our society; criticism of what women choose to wear, or what they once wore. Maybe I’m being unnecessarily catty, idk.

We had idiots like that where I worked. One guy insisted that we didn’t know what salt beef was and were selling the wrong thing. I think he wanted pulled pork, idk. Fortunately my manager always took our side
I worked at a fast food place where, unless specified beforehand the customer would receive their order on a random type of bread i.e. seeded/plain/brown etc. Company policy, staff don’t decide the rules. When I first started working there I was that one member of staff that was always smiling. It was a genuine smile everytime. Now? Pretty much just a corporate polite smile. One time this family of four ordered some sandwiches and ordered a bottle of drink to share between themselves. A few minutes later the mother returns with her sandwich and tells me that her family all had white bread, she had brown and she didn’t want it. So I told her that it wasn’t a problem and we could change it. I sent it to the back and had it re-made on white bread, as she wanted. I gave her the sandwich and apologized profusely. Two minutes later she returns, red in the face and screams at me that she’d asked for it to be on white bread. I check and it’s on white seeded bread. I ask her if she wants it without the seeds. She huffs that yes, she does. I send it back again, apologising in the meantime and serving other waiting customers. Meanwhile, she’s telling anyone who will listen that my customer service skills are horrible. I give her the new sandwich and apologise again. She tells me that I should be sorry and storms off. I learnt a lesson that day about meaning what I say. We’re rarely actually sorry when we say we are, we just cba for the drama. The customers that always demand that they are right are not rational, thinking customers.
