    Some company actually sells a fly swatter with a graphite shaft - no more flimsy wire handles. I'm gonna swat these flies at 90 mph.

    An argument is two people sharing their ignorance.

    A discussion is two people sharing their understanding, even when they disagree.

    I'm assuming the advice is meant to apply outside of working in the service industry. If not, then disregard the above.

    In terms of WORK, putting the customers' needs above your own in paramount. It isn't about being a doormat, but about being productive. You can do something really "productive", but if it doesn't actually meet anyone's needs, it isn't productive (except maybe to you). The art of being successful is figuring out how to meet others' needs without putting out a lot of effort on your own part. So, you find something that you love doing and are naturally good at (therefore not a lot of effort on your part to do) that also meets others' needs (therefore you get paid to do it!).

    If it's just about work then why did she bother mentioning things like safe spaces?

    Because in real life, there are no such things as "safe spaces".

    Work life has no safe spaces at all, because you are FORCED to work with other people, no matter how disagreeable.
    Home life, unless you live entirely alone, has no safe spaces, because you are forced to live with other people.

    So the only way to have any true safe spaces is to be an unemployed hermit who lives off the land. Or a college student.
