9 Hilarious Customer Success Memes of 2024

The life of a customer success leader is a rollercoaster. One minute you're celebrating a customer win, the next you're fielding a question about a feature or worse - worrying about other customers at the risk of churn. And I know not everyone likes rollercoasters, which is why I'm writing this blog - to cheer you hardworking heroes of CS. 🥹

Me and my friend Hardeep compiled the 9 funniest Customer Success memes of 2024. Let's explore the lighter side of the Customer Success world. 😉

I work in Customer Succes bro!

Me: "I work in Customer Success, I love keeping my customers happy!"  ☺️
Reality: Wearing multiple hats, putting out fires, and living on coffee and chaos. 🫠

What it's like working in Customer Success

I am young, wild and free

That's what I used to tell myself sometime back. But ever since I've joined customer success, I feel kinda old. Like an old soul reading a book on a rocking chair. I'm 26, a Customer Success Manager.

How working in customer success feels like

I have successful QBR meetings

Well, not always. Sometimes the insights in the QBR deck lose the battle againsts customer eyelids. They may smile politely, but their eyes plead "please can we get this over with?" 🥱

But I have a weakness - Bad-fit Customers

Bad-fit customers are bad for business. Sounds obvious? Not to some sales guys I suppose. Oh you've signed a new deal? Congratulations! Look what they've done to my mental peace and work-life balance. I have no time to walk my dog Karen.

I gotta make tough promises sometimes

Me, after promising a new feature to calm an angry customer: Looks nervously at product manager who's sharpening their keyboard like a kitchen knife.

And I get nervous at the time of renewal

Me: So, umm, I was thinking, the renewal date is near.. 😬
Customer: Renewal time? Nah, I'm good 😌

How customers behave during renewal time

There are moments of sorrow and misery

I hate the moments when the customer says a positive sentence and it has a "but" in it. During times like these, I have no idea whether to laugh or cry.

And more sorrow and more misery

There's Brenda, the churned customer who used to call me on speed dial, telling me about how she loved the new feature. Why did you change Brenda, what about those old times? 😭

Sometimes I expect too much from my customers

Are you even a Customer Success Manager if you get exactly what you want? Well I don't want a ton of things. Actually, I want only 1 thing - to get my customers agree on whatever I want. God I wish I had this superpower.

Expecting too much from your customers
