It started a little over a hundred years ago, by a business owner trying to rein in his employees. At the time the outlook was very much "caveat emptor;" once an item was paid for, that was it. Didn't matter if you bought a "box of oatmeal" and opened it up when you got home to find it was actually full of dead raccoon; the attitude was very much, "Hah, we have your money; whatcha gonna do about it?" So this business owner coined the phrase "The customer is always right," to communicate to his employees, "Dude, when they bring it in and say they got it home and it was a broken piece of shit, YOU LISTEN." Unfortunately, idiots have twisted it into, "I am the customer and that means that no matter what stupid, physics-defying piece of stupidity I am demanding, YOU MUST CATER TO MY EVERY WHIM." Which is stupid and not at all what was originally intended. So, really, just another thing to blame entitled idiots for warping; but in the context in which it was originally created, not a bad thing.
I'm sorry that happened. Some people are just pigs.
Ew. Gross. Aaand that's why he'll be alone forever.
