+22 "The customer is always right" became an excuse to be inconsiderate to employees, amirite?

Because they forget the rest of that saying it actually goes "the customer is always right in maters of taste and style"

right, it means more like "if they think the red shoe is better than the blue shoe, just sell them the red shoe", as in they are always right in their choice of things.

You beat me to it. I always say ‘taste and preference' though. Same gist!

The problem with "the customer is always right" is that it's half the old saying. The whole saying is "the customer is always right in matters of taste" meaning they can choose whatever options are available to their liking and they're right for wanting those choices.

The customer isn't always right. Frequently, the customer is wrong. But sans customer, you're just standing around like an idiot, waiting to go out of business. Your complaint should be with your employer, who hasn't set rules against such orders. Here's another little industry secret, y'all need every sale. Cry less.

It is your job unless your place has a rule about calling large offers ahead. If they don't then you have to do what people order, don't like it, find another job.

I believe the problem is, unreasonably large orders take time. So if you just walk in and place one, you'll have to wait. And wait a long time because meanwhile, other people are coming in placing orders that also have to be filled. In other words, use common sense when asking for something out of the ordinary.

The customer is usually an idiot.

Nothing to do with the customer being right or wrong. Someone walks in an orders 100 cheeseburgers and 50 large fries (or whatever) and you don't think you can provide them then you refer the matter to your manager. If they say take the order and get on with it then that's on them, not the customer. I guess you are in the USA so you have the right to end your employment with no notice you don't like it.

The customer is always right in matters of taste; As in, when it comes to preferences in style, design, and palette. That is the full saying.

Id say "the customer is always right" was the first step in the wrong direction

That's why many people threw tantrums in stores during the pandemic when they were asked to social distance or wear a mask. Many Americans believe they have absolute rights to do whatever they want one someone else's business property.
