Leigh Carey was trying to return something at his local Radio Shack in Wisconsin. The kind clerk behind the counter, James Knol, politely told Mr. Carey that he could not return this object.
Undeterred, Mr. Carey asked to speak to Mr. Knol’s manager. At this point, Mr. Knol proceeded to beat the crap out of Mr. Carey. How awesome is this? I can just here James now…”You want to return a cable? I got your fu**in’ cable right here.” POW! – punches him right in the kisser.
Here is a photo of the disagreeable clerk.
A couple of things. First, who the hell shops at Radio Shack anymore? Didn’t they go out of business like 20 years ago? No wonder the guy’s doo hickey didn’t work. It went out of style a century ago and they probably don’t make it anymore…which is why he can’t return it.
Second, isn’t it awesome that an employee just decided he wasn’t going to take crap from a customer anymore? I am not sure when the saying “the customer is always right” came about but what a load of bull sh**. The customer is rarely, if ever, right. We have become a nation of whiny, complaining, “it’s never good enough” consumers. A quick right cross is exactly what the doctor ordered.
I hope I see more of this in the future. Your steak is not cooked exactly right? Complain but expect to be punched. In fact, that is the new rule. Anytime you return something or complain, you have to take a punch to the head. Employees working the return lines would all be 6’5″ and 350 pounds. I would pull up a lawn chair and just watch all day long.
I am especially offended when the item being returned is worth like a buck. “Hey, this pen doesn’t work”. So what? It’s a freakin’ pen for Oz sake! Don’t you have more important worries like how are you going to get that rusted car off of your front lawn or the crappy couch off of your front porch?
So, Radio Shack consumers…you have been warned. Return items at your own risk. Good luck.
