Ah, customer service. Two words that will put any Karen into battle mode and send shivers down the spine of anyone who’s ever worked retail in their lives. Sure, some if not most customers are fine and pleasant enough, but the ones who seem determined to make a stink outweigh the normies any day.

Check out these 10 true stories from retail workers about the dumbest things people have tried to return.

Reading through all of those does not make me envious of the people working customer service in retail right now. Not that I’ve ever been. It’s a tough, thankless job. So next time you interact with someone in that department, be kind. Show some patience. Don’t be like these people.
