Not Always Right relates horror stories from people working in industries that serve the public. And it seems that the public is a ass.

I have my own personal experience with the crazy whacko loony set, which I dutifully report here.




No Time Limit


Retail | Utah, USA | Bizarre

(This happened several years ago. I sell a nutritional product on the web. It's imported from Canada, and at the time, I offered a 100% satisfaction guarantee. Below is a digest from a long series of email exchanges.)

Customer: I'm not satisfied with your product, I want a refund.

Me: I'm sorry to hear that. Just send the bottle back and I'll be happy to refund your money.

Customer: I can't, I've used it. Also the other four bottles I've ordered over the last year. I'm not satisfied, and I want a refund for all of it.

Me: It took you a whole year to figure out you didn't like the product? That would be like shopping at Albertson's for a year and then demanding a refund on all your groceries because you didn't lose weight.

Customer: HOW DARE YOU COMPARE YOURSELF TO ALBERTSON'S? I DEMAND A FULL REFUND RIGHT NOW!!!

Me: *sigh* The best I can offer you is to refund 1/2 of your purchase price.

Customer: YOU'RE A THIEF AND A CRIMINAL!! HOW CAN YOU SLEEP AT NIGHT?!? I'M REPORTING YOU TO EVERYONE I CAN THINK OF!!

As I promised, I sent her half of her money back. Which is more than I should have done. My policy now specifies no-hassle refunds on the first order, unless the product is in some way defective.

Today's Retail is interesting:



However, I found the ending slightly unsatisfying. Here is my improved version:



I can't draw worth tuppence, or I'd do my own strip...



For what it's worth, I think Feuti's work is outstanding.

Every store ought to have a sign like this on their door, and then do it.

Dan Piraro seems to have hit a slump. Lately, Bizarro hasn't been as funny as it has in years past. But today's strip got a Yukyuk out of me, and I suspect my Retail-based F-List will have the same reaction.

Bizarro
