    For the past year or so, I have been using this virtual office. The only purpose it serves for me is for clients to come in and see that it's a real office. I wouldn't give clients my home address because they might think I am a retard.

    So yesterday, a client comes in and asks for me. The girl there says "he is not here." The guy says "I want his cell phone number" the girl says "I am not authorized to give you his cell phone number"
    one thing leads to another and things supposedly get quite nasty and they end up calling security on the guy.

    today I went to the office and the girl said something like "the owners have said you cannot have clients come in any more. This is only mail service...it's not our job to take care of your clients...so if you are gonna have clients here, I would suggest you start thinking of another place."

    I do not blame the client for this, I dont think he was being rude. This is totally the girl's fault. she IS rude, she DOES act like a emotionless robot. There has been a lot of times when she has told me "I was talking to someone on the phone today and he called me a bitch" I wanna tell her "That's because you ARE one." lol

    Ultimately, this is all the owner's fault. He is a cheap ass and doesn't hire people to do his work, so this poor girl has 100 things that she has to do and she goes crazy.

    What should I do? The only purpose this office has for me is for clients to come in and feel safe because they see that I am a real company. I rarely receive mail. Should I leave and go somewhere else? Is there any way I can recover from this?

    Depending on your location, you might find certain places that offer mini offices for rent, usually pretty cheap, for very small start ups. Otherwise you could go to local office buildings and cut a deal with the owners to use the empty upper floor offices for a few hours at a time?

    You could find cheap one room "offices" I'd suggest looking on craigslist or something.

    Buy her some flowers. Nice ones. Flowers that say, "I think you are nice, and beautiful." And get her some chocolates. GOOD chocolate too. Something that says, "You deserve something of high quality." And then a nice card, and on that card say something nice, like "I appreciate all that you do, and I'm sorry for all the difficulties there have been lately."

    And then, stop doing whatever shit that you have been doing, that causes customers to become so angry that they come storming into your virtual office and make the receptionist girl's life miserable, because you, I, and everyone and anyone on this forum that has ever read any of your posts are ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN that whatever it was that provoked this client, YOU did it. Not the client, not the girl, it was YOU. YOUR fault.

    We all know this. We ALL know this. The question is, do you?
