    My first job was at an Eddie Bauer store...

    The company had a satisfaction guaranteed policy where the store would replace any item with a new one if the customer desired.

    I had a middle aged man come in with a bag full of items that were at least 5 years old (the SKU #s were no longer listed or archived)...he claimed he was not satisfied with any of the items...not even the boots he had worn until the soles were worn smooth or the faded shirts he had obviously worn to work and washed 1000's of times. With a straight face, the guy explained his reasoning to the baffled manager

    and then he walked out with a brand new wardobe...

    I heard a lot of stores still do this. I think JCPenny has a guarantee like that as well. I still can't believe somebody would do that though.

    I work in accounting and one of my pet peeves is when a customer calls after receiving an invoice and claim they didn't get the shipment. I don't know if they're too stupid or lazy to realize that we put tracking #'s right in the middle of the invoice. It makes it even better when the person calling to bitch is the same person that signed for the shipment.

    We've also had people try to return something that is in our product line but not from a manufacturer we carry.

    when I worked in a computer store back in the early 90's I had a guy come in because he bought a motherboard there and it didn't work. Soooo the guy whips it out and shows it to me.

    He mounted it with drywall screws straight to the plate, no standoffs nothing. He wanted to return it, I laughed, litterally. I had to get one of the other guys to come over, while stifeling chuckles to explain to the guy that 1. there is no way in hell he was going to return it and 2. how to properly mount a motherboard.

    I felt bad for the guy because he just wasted $150 but there was still no way in hell he was going to get his money back.

    "You're a dick" or "You're an asshole" are common phrases when working the RV lot on gameday.

    Last year for Michigan, I had a CRV with two chicks in it offer me a blowjob for a parking space. It took everyounce of will power to say "no". They were cute too. Not hot, but certainly cute, if not a little "fluffy".

    how do you say no to that? not like "how can you possibly say no"....more like "what do you say to them so they know you arent a fag, youre just trying not to get fired?"
