Okay tell me if I was wrong here. I go to a cheap store to buy a cheap dress for one time use. I need it tomorrow and tomorrow only and I don’t want to run around all night long looking for this cheap dress that I am going to wear one day. So as cheap clothes go you can hardly find anything to fit. Uggh I hate cheap clothes and I hate shopping for clothes in stores. I dress okay, definitely not a fashionista.
I finally find one dress…..ONE out of all the dresses in this store that is my size and cut right. But oh of course there is a catch to that…the top button is missing. So I go back to see if there are any more and there is only ONE more of the same dress in the store and its a size 6. My pinky won’t fit in a six.. So I go up to customer service and I ask her if she can take the button off the itty-bitty dress so I can put it on my dress. She was like are you kidding me? Uhhhh no I was not kidding. She said they would write the dress off for the missing button. We went back and forth until I asked for a manager. Manager comes up and she tells manager “She wants to buy this dress with a missing button and wants me to destroy this perfectly good dress by taking a button off it so she can have it. I told her I can’t do that and now she wants you to settle this.” WHAT?? LOL talking about explaining a story in a biased way. Manager gave me the same story she did about writing the dress off for being damaged. My rationale is that if they gave me the button they still have one dress that they will mark down or off and one dress at whole value so I couldn’t see the difference. She said she is not going to destroy a totally good dress. I asked her if she can find the dress in my size in the back or something. NO. I ask her what if I take the button off. She said I will be visiting the magistrate for theft of a button. LOL ARE YOU KIDDING ME??
Okay fine so I let her mark said dress down and I guess I will try to find a pin or something to put in the place of the top button. She said no returns and she wrote off $2.50. I asked her when was the last time she bought buttons because there were 12 buttons on that dress and there was no way I would be able to buy 12 buttons for $2.50. She agrees but says only one is missing and $2.50 is generous for one button. I told her the probability of finding one button to match this was nearly impossible and therefore I would have to buy a whole set. She wouldn’t budge off that $2.50. She had me by the balls… so I purchased the dress.
I am going to report the incident to their headquarters. AM I wrong for that?
It’s not easy being a chick I swear. The crap we have to go through. Out of curiosity I wonder how men would have handled this situation…
