It takes a special kind of person to interpret a store’s return policy as a suggestion and not a rule. I myself do not possess this quality. If I’m told to pay up, even if it’s ridiculous, I often put my goodie two shoes on and cough up the money. This is not a quality of which I am proud, especially over the Holiday season when there are a lot of scams out there. In times like these, I wish I knew someone like this Redditor so he could stand up to the store manager on my behalf.
This thread was posted to Reddit’s r/pettyrevenge subreddit by u/JP_Renardine, who shared what happened after his girlfriend bought him an oversized shoe for Christmas. This shouldn’t have been a problem at all given that the shoe store was right near where they live. However, despite the fact that OP was able to exchange this shoe for the same model (just a different color), the cashier at the store insisted that he had to pay. Perhaps a normal customer would have just paid the difference, but OP couldn’t give in. Keep scrolling below to see how he managed to get them to pay an albeit small difference instead.
