    Complaining To A Fault

    | Chester, England, UK |

    Customer: “I want a refund on my sofa!”

    Me: “I’m terribly sorry. What seems to be the problem with the sofa?”

    Customer: “I’m not happy!”

    Me: “I’m sorry you’re not happy. What seems to be the problem?”

    Customer: “Well, I’m not happy with it.”

    Me: “I see. Why exactly is that?”

    Customer: “There is a manufacturing fault.”

    Me: “What is the fault, sir?”

    Customer: “I’m not happy!”

    Me: “I understand that, sir. What is the fault with the sofa?”

    Customer: “Well, I’m not happy!”

    Me: “With all due respect, ‘I’m not happy’ is not a manufacturing fault.”

    Customer: “Of course it is. It’s manufactured to make me happy! This sofa is not fit for purpose!”

    Me: “Can you sit on the sofa?”

    Customer: “Of course I can!”

    Me: “Then it is fit for purpose, sir.”

    Customer: “But I am not happy! There must be a manufacturing fault to make me not happy with it!”
