They’re Dog-Gone Outrageous

| Columbia, SC, USA | Right | May 22, 2017

(I own a dog salon, so the clients that come in can be rather… interesting, to say the least. This customer however was a beautiful piece of art that I just had to share. A woman calls to ask some questions about our services, get a price, and book an appointment. After speaking with her, I tell her that the service will be $45. She sounds pleased and books an appointment for the following Saturday, our busiest day. Let’s skip to the appointment day: The client shows up five minutes early with the requested shot records in hand so we can verify her dog’s rabies vaccination. Seems good so far.)

Client: “Wait… Why are there other dogs here?”

(I stand there in silence for a moment, a little confused by her question.)

Client: “Hello? Why are there other dogs in here?”

Me: “Well, ma’am, this is a grooming salon, so we have clients drop their dogs off and pick them up when they are finished.”

Client: “I understand that, but I don’t want my dog around other dogs. I thought you only did one dog at a time.”

Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am, I don’t. I groom one dog at a time, but I have clients drop dogs off throughout the morning so I can stagger baths, drying, and haircuts.”

Client: “Well, I’m going to need to book on a day where you can close the shop and only take my dog.”

Me: *stands there, dumbfounded at this demand*

Client: “Is that an issue? I don’t want her around other dogs. I also need to keep her here until 6:00. I get off of work at 5:30, so it will take me a bit to get out the door and back over here.”

Me: *I take a moment to collect my very confused and shocked brain* “Ma’am, I’m sorry but I can’t do that. I have to take other dogs in order to make money. I also don’t offer day care services. I close at 5 and usually require clients to pick up their dog after the grooming is finished.”

Client: “Well, I can tip. I usually tip $10.”

Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am, but I usually make at least $300 in a day with all the dogs I book and groom. If you would like for me to do this for you, you can pay $400. This will cover all of the appointments I would have to block off and cover the day care service from eight am till six pm.” *I don’t bat an eye while giving my price*

Client: “Are you f***ing kidding me?! You said it would be $45!”

Me: “Yes, ma’am, but a $45 groom and a $10 tip does not make up for the $300-plus I could be making by taking multiple dogs. May I suggest that you use an at home groomer or maybe a mobile groomer? They don’t offer day care services, but they only take one dog at a time.”

Client: “F**k you!”

Me: “All-righty. Have a good day.”

Too Much TV Stops Them Reading

| Surrey, BC, Canada | Right | May 22, 2017

Customer: “Excuse me, where do I go to see your Sony TVs?”

Me: “We don’t carry Sony TVs.”

Customer: “Of course you do! It’s in your flyer!”

(The customer pulls out a flyer and points at the TV in question.)

Me: “Sir, that’s a Sanyo TV, not a Sony. It even has the Sanyo logo on it.”

Customer: “Then why does it say Sony here?”

(He points to a fine print next to the picture of the TV. It reads “Warranty not covered by Sony.”)

Me: “That’s a misprint, I’m afraid.”

Customer: *triumphantly* “Then it’s false advertising! Your flyer promised something that you don’t have! It’s really awful that you guys are resorting to bait-and-switch tactics to sell your junk TVs!”

Me: “Like I said, it’s a misprint. Despite that fact, it’s actually still telling the truth. It reads ‘Warranty not covered by Sony.’ That’s not exactly wrong; Sony definitely wouldn’t cover a Sanyo TV.”

Customer: “I’m still very disappointed by this! I read ‘Sony’ on your flyer, and I was expecting a Sony TV!” *storms out*

(I’d like to know how this guy’s brain works. Apparently he can read the fine print, but not all of it. And somehow, the big, obvious Sanyo logo next to the fine print just went over his head.)

Half The Bacon But None Of The Understanding

| AR, USA | Right | May 22, 2017

(We have a sale on bacon. It is buy one, get one free, but we have it in the system where it just rings up half price, which is the same thing.)

Customer: “That’s supposed to be buy one get one free.”

Checker: “Yes. It just rings up half price.”

Customer: “I should only have to pay for one of them.”

Checker: “It’s marked down to half price so it will be the same thing as buying one and getting the other free.”

Customer: “I don’t think that’s right; you should take one off!”

Checker: “I can call the store manager up here if you would like.”

(The manager talked to her trying to explain it. She never understood it and ended up not getting bacon at all.)

Announcement: Mid-2017 Update

| Friendly Hopeless Learning Related Right Romantic Working | May 22, 2017

Hey readers! We have some exciting changes to share with you:

Not Always Right – In addition to our new logo, you may have noticed all sites now bear the “Not Always Right” logo. This was done on purpose: having multiple sites was problematic and inefficient for both readers and staff. From now on, there will only be one site and one brand: Not Always Right. For our loyal, long-time readers, don’t worry — the former sister sites will remain in separate categories, but under a single unified brand.

All Tab – This new tab is exactly as it sounds: all stories from all categories under a single tab.

Popular Tab – Read our most popular recent stories from all categories.

Unified Unfiltered Tab – Unfiltered also gets unified, with all unfiltered stories from all categories under this tab.

New Commenting System – This was a tough call for us, but we’ve decided to switch commenting systems to Disqus. The main benefit will be that anyone (not just Facebook users) will finally be able to comment. The big downside is the loss of the old Facebook comments. Please note we are actively investigating a way to provide access to the legacy Facebook comments.

Unified Facebook Page – For our Facebook users, all stories from all categories will be posted to the Not Always Right page. The former sister site pages will no longer be maintained.

Random (under construction) – Thanks for everyone who noticed issues with the Random button! We’ve temporarily removed it so we can get it working properly. We’re also looking into making it pull only stories from the category you are in.

Got comments, suggestions, or criticisms? Please let us know in the comments below! And thank you as always for being a loyal reader and visitor!
