You Won That Closing Argument

, , , | Right | August 27, 2020

I work in the shoe section of a department store that’s closing down. I’m in a sea of red “Store Closing” signs behind the register, ticketing prices on shoes, when a lady comes up and throws her receipt and a box of shoes hard onto my counter.

Customer: *Annoyed tone* “I want to return these; I don’t want them anymore.”

Me: “Well, ma’am, I’m sorry, but I can’t return these due to the store closing.”

Customer: “What do you mean, your store is closing!? Why did no one tell me when I got them?! You people should put up a sign, for God’s sake!”

I was in shock from the amount of stupidity I had just been exposed to, and I glanced at the thousands of signs posted around. I gestured to the one on the counter, which said in big, bold letters, “NO RETURNS/EXCHANGES.”

The customer looked at the sign, let out a big huff, grabbed the shoebox, and stormed out without her receipt. I glanced at the receipt, curious as to when she got them. Know what the bottom said?

“DUE TO CLOSURES: ALL SALES FINAL!”
