Warranty For Life?

Some people can be very "kiam siap" (stingy) and thick-skinned. I seriously have to call them master!

Few days ago, my baba's customer came in to the office and made a big fuss. He demanded for a warranty claim although the warranty has expired for almost 3 years. When my mama explained to him about the warranty, he stopped my mama and said furiously, "you don't tell me all these! Don't tell me my thing left there would also get spoilt!"

Wah! I couldn't believe there's actually such a person in this world! Why don't he buy his clothes with the receipt stated, "only exchangeable within 3 days only if the product is not in satisfactory condition" and then exchange for a new one only after 10 years? Try give the reason, "I only wore it once and the clothes have changed yellowish". I think people will just give him a I-don't-give-a-damn-look or if he meet a gangster, he will just get himself two panda eyes.

I just don't understand what was he thinking. Warranty for life?

This kind of people do exist! That's life ..

Everyday in the office, I try not to argue too much with colleague which purposely trying to make other people's life harder just to protect their ass ...

People like this has a mentality that "I'm king of kings.. You must serve me because you are wrong"

ychu: No lah, there's still hope. We're the nation's hope!:D

lynnwei: Such people hor, I don't know whether they understand business or not. Or rather, they prefer to make themselves look "cheap".

DD: Hah! You're right that they think they're king. Everyone is wrong and only, yes, ONLY, he is correct. Duh!

I wonder if such person has brain or not. They just make themselves as cheap as they can... sigh...

u wouldn't believe that there are a lot of ppl that way. when i worked at the drugstore i dealt with this kind of ppl "i bought it from your store, but no receipt" even when the exchange things they add more mater to the liquid detergent for refund.

imagine the things that they do!

miche said...

if i come across this kinda people, i will lecture him cowcow. get him to be in your shoe and see whether he can answer u or not.

Jade/Momma Wannabe said...

Yeah some people are just plain dumb or they play dumb to get away with what they want huh? ;)

Kok said...

dalicia: Wah! That's even worse! I think they're just desperate to save those some dollars...

miche: You won't win them. They would give you thousands or millions of excuses! They came with a reason, to get the thing without the need to pay!

jade: Welcome here!:)

Correct, that's their main motive. Got money to buy the things but no money to maintain/replace the thing... *sigh*

aiyah... on this earth got all types of people. I'm not surprised. Meet so many too, one of them is my relatives.

So thick-skin came to my hubby's optical shop to ask for a new pair of frames because it was tarnished.

aiyoh... wear for 3 years, some more buy cheap one... sure tarnish lah, change what!? My nice hubby change for her. Huh!?

EastCoastLife said...

wei... want to be part of my family for angpows only ah.

Kok said...

ECL,
Most of these people are rich and frequent customers. And yes, those who's close to you will also take advantage of these.

They don't understand what's business. If everyone is your relatives, then you "zap dou" (cantonese) loh? Everywhere you go, just smile smile after taking stuff and then leave. Doh!

I understand your hubby situation lah. Get the money, your relative will make a big fuss. Don't get the money, it's against business principles. Aihhhhhhh!

Be a part of family not only for angpao lah. For presents also mah. hahaha!

TINTIN said...

Boy,..good..good, so young already starts comparing prices, i'm sure you will be rich when old hehehe!~

Kok said...

tintin,
Compare price where got good? Will tend to spend more in order to get a better quality things leh. kekeke.

Kok said...

Maybe that's the reasons why they're loaded with lots of money? *Sigh*
