They sounded perfectly reasonable to me, but he was simply being a jerk, saying "Well I dont' want that, and I'm the customer, and the customer's always right." She tried tellling him what their policy was, but he'd just interrupt her with "I'll tell
what your policy is! The customer is always right!"
I got fed up -- the store was busy, and a whole bunch of people were waiting -- and I finally told him to take the option and leave. This short, chubby dude looked at me, jerked his thumb towards the door, and said "Check it." I just about pounded his doughy little face right there. We exchanged words, I called him an asshole, and he asked the manager to kick me out because I swore and that was rude. She just walked away.
Thirty minutes later I was in Target. A couple of college-age dudes came up to me and said "Hey man, you could have kicked that dude's ass!" I was a bit surprised, but I just said "thanks" and went about my business. I have fans now!
