It does cost the consumer time and money to bring back a defective product. It is your store's responsibility to apologize for selling an unsatisfactory product and return/exchange as per customer's needs. Customer is always right. And it's no skin off your back, you don't own the 800 store chain. So quit whining!
There's so many assumptions and things wrong here. First off, this is FML, if you don't want to see people "whining" about their lives, this isn't the place for you. Also, the customer is rarely right, and if they're making ridiculous demands or requests, especially ones that can't reasonably be fulfilled, you don't have to cater to them. If you buy a product from a store, that comes with the condition that you might need to go back to the store to get another one. It's the way things work, the store can't come to you, either deal with it or just order stuff online from now on. How do you expect OP to do the exchange over the phone? They usually physically need the exact item to make the exchange. Especially to check if the product is damaged or faulty in anyway because of the customer's usage. Customers often do that, they try to exchange broken items that are only broken because they mishandled them. If OP tried to do this, it would be skin off their back, because at the very least they'd be disciplined, but most likely they'd be fired.
Yeah. I've had a customer demand a replacement before. She had the receipt and the product which would have been fine. Except the item was from a completely different company. Apparently she couldn't tell the difference between Thrifty foods and WalMart. Here's a hint, if you're in a grocery store, odds are, they don't do refunds on clothing. That's why I work night shift, less people come in so less stupid people to deal with overall.
