Sometimes I think it depends on whether or not you've actually experienced that job. I've never done call centre work, so something that a call centre person might see as sucky wouldn't seem so to me. However, I don't call it out, cuz it's on something that I know sod all about, so I can't judge. Just as someone else who's never worked in a petrol station might say that a customer not putting the nozzle in the car isn't a sucky customer, but a petrol station worker might disagree.

For the record, on that situation, it depends on the customer's reaction to being told that they're doing it wrong. Whereas some people might say "Oh, sorry" and comply, others might be rude and obnoxious... and that's the difference between the brain burp and the sucky, at least, in my opinion.
People who don't like cats were probably mice in an earlier life.
