–I’m a supervisor at a local drugstore. Our manager has a reputation of going above and beyond policy just to shut people up so they don’t call head office or complain about the store, which can make us look stupid in comparison when we are following store policy.–

Lady: *storms in* “Where is your supervisor?”
Me: it’s me, how can I help?
Lady: I need a return.

She has the receipt for the item, but not the item.
Me: ma’am, I cannot return an item if you don’t have both the receipt AND the item with you
Lady: but the item is damaged. It leaked, so I threw it out. I want my money back.
Me: once again ma’am, I cannot perform a return if you do not have the item AND the receipt.
Lady: why not?
Me: for all I know, the item is still intact and you just want free money. I cannot do that. If you would like to speak to someone higher up, here is the number, and my manager is in tomorrow morning at 9am. Feel free to complain to them.

She tells my manager that I was beyond rude and threatened her. She comes into the store the next morning; my manager demands I apologize to her. I refuse. Then, to make it up to her, she not only returns the item without it being present and gives her the cash and another bonus item to boot.

Should be called “manager isn’t always right”
