Refunder Blunder: The Halloween Edition

, , , , | Right | October 31, 2022

It is spooky season — three days before Halloween — so, of course, our costume store is absolutely swamped and we’ve run out of most rental costumes.

Customer: “If I don’t like the costume, can I bring it back for a refund?”

Me: “We have changing rooms to make sure you’re 100% happy with your costume before you purchase it.”

Customer: “What if I bring it home and then don’t like it?”

Me: “We don’t accept refunds after Halloween on items purchased before Halloween. Also, this close to October 31st, we would only accept a refund if the costume had a defect, which we would implore you to detect when you try on the costume before buying it.”

Customer: “What if I wanted to refund it on November 1st?”

Okay, so she’s not listening.

Me: “As I said, ma’am, we don’t accept refunds after Halloween.”

Customer: “How long after Halloween? What if I came, like, a week later?”

Me: “Indefinitely, ma’am.”

Customer: “Well… what about—”

Me: “Ma’am, you are not going to be able to wear a costume for a Halloween party and then return it after you don’t need it.”

Customer: *Huffs* “That’s bad business!”

Me: “Actually, the opposite of that is true. Are you buying the costume?”

Customer: “How about if I return it when—”

Me: “Next customer!”
