What A Tool, Part 2

| WA, USA | Crazy Requests

(I work for a large department store known for selling tools and hardware under their own brand. They have a lifetime guarantee on tools of this brand, and will exchange any broken or defective tool at any time. I am working in the tools department. A customer comes into the store with a whole lot of tools.)

Me: “Can I help you, sir?”

Customer: “Yes, I’d like to exchange all of my tools for new ones.”

Me:All of your tools? Are they broken?”

Customer: “No, they’re not broken. They’re used. I want new nice looking tools.”

Me: “I’m sorry sir, we cannot exchange all of your tools just because they’re used. We can only exchange them if they are broken or defective.”

Customer: “But they have a lifetime guarantee! I can exchange them any time I want! And now they’re used, and I just got a new job working for a car dealership, and I want new tools that look nice! You have to exchange these!”

Me: “Sir, are you going to be actually working on cars, or just hanging your tools on your wall?”

Customer: “Get me your manager now!”

(I call my manager, and overhear part of his conversation with the customer.)

Customer: “No, they’re just used. I want new tools that look nice for my new job at a car dealership.”

Manager: “So, are you actually going to work on cars with your tools, or just hang them on the wall?”

Customer: *leaves in a huff*
