I don’t know about anyone else but I just hate returning something to the store. I don’t care if it’s something that doesn’t fit, sour milk or something that I have a duplicate of, I just hate it. IF I do want something to be returned, I usually make Paul do it.
I don’t know why I’m like this. I’m so afraid of hurting someone’s feelings that I practice my “explanation” on why I want or need to return it. How dumb is that? Like those sales clerks would get their feelings hurt. They most likely don’t even care but it’s really something that bothers me to do. You have no idea how many things I’ve kept over the years that I never wore or used simply because I didn’t want to return it to the store.
I can’t mention any names here but I know certain people in my life who used to buy something and use the life out of it, go buy another one just like it, or as close to it as possible and return the old one in the new box and get their product in new condition for free. I used to try and explain to them that’s like stealing but they didn’t see it that way. It’s thanks to people like them that the return policies have all changed and it’s now harder to return things.
I think with me it’s all the questions. It’s someone throwing questions at me and I’m nervous to begin with and then I start over-talking. I’m famous for over-talking when I get nervous. Hence, why I practice what I’m going to say before I go. HENCE why I usually make Paul do the returning. I’m hopeless.
Am I alone here or do you know people who hate to return things?
