    I need to vent.

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I have this pen customer that I've exchanged OVER EIGHTY EMAILS with regarding TWO pens.:suicide:

    He tried beating me up on price forEVER. Tried the "I have another pen turner waiting for your price to meet or match it" and "I'm a poor retiree on a fixed budget" blah blah blah.

    It's all bullshit. The guy is a pen collector with over 600 in his collection.

    Anyhow, he's as OCD, picky, finicky as you can possibly get. We talked for TWO DAY about how the cap clip should line up with the nib of his pen.:jj:

    He just received the pens and is trying to get me to give him another discount, even though his exact words were:

    He doesn't even have any fucking complaints!?!?!

    I hate people. :suicide:

    Have your wife talk to him. That will teach him a lesson.

    elias, just cut your losses and just give him the bloody pen, gratis. It makes your company look good and it gets him out of your fuckin' hair.

    He still won't be happy and he'll immediately start inquiring about more pens.

    I'd politely ask that he seeks his pens elsewhere from now on.

    Really? He's kind of a dick. I already sold them to him dirt cheap.

    He CLEARLY had this in mind from the get go. He planned on getting a discount by complaining. He's offered to return the pens if I don't give him another discount, even thought there is ZERO wrong with them. :banghead:

    We have a Lincoln customer who contacted Lincoln to bitch about the odor from the latex gloves that the techs wear. (srs)

    That's exactly what you should do. Now, if he keeps coming back and you sense a pattern, then deal with it.

    Until then, you have to expect a certain percentage of your customers will be seemingly impossible to please. Just do it and try to forget about him. It's a waste of your time to do anything other than "make him happy" and move on, bro.
