The key is to remain calm. If you can calm the customer down and let him now that you will address his complaint that would be ideal. If not, I think finding a manger would be the best option.
I would try one more time to calm the customer down and satisfy there needs. If that did not work I would politely let the customer know I am going to find my manager or team leader to assist them.
I would apologize first of all for whatever upset the customer. I'd also ask if there is anything that I can do. If necessary, I'd refer them to the manager for help.
If I can't calm the customer I would ask a member of management to step in. I would never agitate a customer I handle it with compasion and understanding.
I would ask them to calm down, apologize, and ask how i could make their experience better.
I would listen to their complaint. Then I would apologize for their inconvenience. I would try to solve the problem myself by offering a replacement, money back, et cetera, and if I still did not feel they were satisfied, I would escort them to a manager and make sure it did get resolved. I would not leave them until I understood that they were happy.
I would remain calm. It really wouldn't phase me, I would try to help calm them down and then I would figure out how to fix the problem,
