The Seeds Of Their Discontent, Part 2

, , , | Right | October 1, 2020

My parents own a feed and seed store, but we have just started working there the fall before this incident. It is spring now. An angry-looking guy comes up to me, and I try to help him as best as I can.

Me: “Yes, sir, can I help you today?”

Customer: “No, I want to see the manager.”

Me: “Okay, hold on just one moment, please. Dad!”

My dad comes up beside me.

Dad: “Yes, sir, can I help you?”

Customer: “Yeah, I came in last spring and picked two flats of [vegetable plants] when [Former Manager] was still here. I went home and planted them, but when I started getting fruit off of it, it was the wrong type. I went ahead and sold them, but I would like a refund seeing as I didn’t get the right thing.”

Dad: “So, you’re telling me that I should refund you for two flats that you picked out yourself this time last year, even though you made the same amount of money? I’m sorry, sir, but I cannot do that.”

Customer: “Why not? It’s your fault I got the wrong thing! I want my f****** refund now!”

Dad: “Sir, it’s your fault you got the wrong thing because you were the one that picked them up. Also, please refrain from using that type of language in front of my daughter.”

Customer: “F*** this. I can say whatever I f****** want to! And you, I’ll report you to the owner and have your a** fired!”

Dad: “Sir, I don’t think I can fire myself. Please leave or I will be forced to call the police.”

The customer proceeded to storm out of the store, shouting at all the customers in the parking lot not to shop here.
