I had a guy return a new CD because he didn't like the mixing and he "had ain his basement and so knew sound quality," puffing himself up like a strutting rooster when he said it.
He swore at me and I went all school marm "That language is not acceptable or appreciated."
He apologized, but, as my grandmother always said, a good reputation is an easy thing to lose and a near impossible thing to replace.
Another customer pointed out that if he had a recording studio he could have fixed the damned sound and felt not like a useless twat.
It's a new cd, we can't predict if it's mixed up to your high standards.
God, I can't count how many times people bring in empty jars of cream and want money back. Or even worse, filled up with something that is obviously not $135 moisturizer.
Seriously, do people think I can't tell the difference between the stuff I've been selling for 4 years and Garnier Fructise Conditioner?
Yups. Some thing worse happened. A few weeks ago, some stupid girl wanted to return a sandwich she said was the wrong order.
We would've done it EXCEPT for three things that had happened previously:
1. She had already returned a sandwich before for another.
2. She once again returned another sandwich.
3. The third time, she had already eaten half the damn sandwich.
Seriously ... and the girl that had come to us the first two times wasn't even the actual customer.
The third time she came with the actual eater, in which the friend told the eater, "They won't take it because you ate half of it, bitch.'
Why do people who return every thing they buy think they are customers?
They actually COST the store money.
The store has to pay someone to ring up the sale,return the sale and fool around with the paperwork associated with the return(sending product back to the vender or whatever).
I think chronic returners should pay the store a service fee at least.At least we could get something for our trouble.
I once had a woman return a sunscreen because,she said,it made bees chase her.Another woman dropped an eyeshadow from her second floor balcony and complained that it broke and demanded a replacement.
Not to be outdone, one annoying skank returned a bodysuit because the snaps made her crotch break out in a rash.
Yeah, like I really needed to hear that.
A few months back in my Hardly Normal store, I had a customer try to return a- 1 day short of being a year since purchase.
Apparently, they only just realized that it was a mono-function printer, not a multifunction.
I flat out said no way, so they kicked up a fuss saying that they spoke to David on the phone (we don't have a David or anyone with a similar name).
In the end my manager returned it and refunded it for them.
I had a lady walk up to me with a bathrobe in a bag and asked me if the bathrobe came from our store and if she could return it.
I looked it over and it obviously didn't come from our store.
I told her that our store only has Blah-Blah brand of bathrobes and it's not ours and wouldn't be able to return it...
She paused and looked at me with a disgusted face and said..."..SO?!"
