    Ben Edelman (left) and Ran Duan (right)

    Ben Edelman is an associate professor at Harvard Business School, where he teaches in the Negotiation, Organizations & Markets unit.

    Ran Duan manages The Baldwin Bar, located inside the Woburn location of Sichuan Garden, a Chinese restaurant founded by his parents.

    Last week, Edelman ordered what he thought was $53.35 worth of Chinese food from Sichuan Garden’s Brookline Village location.

    Edelman soon came to the horrifying realization that he had been overcharged. By a total of $4.

    If you’ve ever wondered what happens when a Harvard Business School professor thinks a family-run Chinese restaurant screwed him out of $4, you’re about to find out.

    The mail exchange is kinda long, but interesting if you like this sort of stuff:

    “I personally respond to every complaint and try to handle every situation personally,” said Duan, who was profiled by Boston Magazine in June and featured in GQ Magazine last month as “America’s Most Imaginative Bartender.”

    The exchange with Edelman stood out to Duan. “I have worked so hard to make my family proud and to elevate our business. It just broke my heart.”

    Edelman told Boston.com that investigating pricing discrepancies by neighborhood restaurants isn’t something he does every day.

    “I mostly look for malfeasance by larger companies,” he said. “It certainly seems like a situation that could call for legal redress. But this is a small business in the town where I reside.”

    As for Edelman, he alerted town officials in Brookline about the matter, but told Boston.com he doesn’t expect them to take action. He plans to “take a few days” before deciding whether to pursue any further legal action against the restaurant.

    Robin, as the most ethical man in showbusiness, I am appalled that this restaurant is engaging in this practice. Menu prices are like a contract between the restaurant and the consumer. They should refund this poor fellow $12 and honor their contract, just like I do.

    "On May 30, 2007, Pearson reduced his demands to $54 million in damages rather than $67 million. Among his requests were $500,000 in attorney's fees, $2 million for "discomfort, inconvenience, and mental distress", and $15,000, which he claimed would be the cost to rent a car every weekend to drive to another dry cleaning service."​

    Roy L. Pearson Jr., another asshole.

    Edelman sounds like a divorce lawyer.

    I'm quite certain that the dick-in-the-jaw got his ass beat in school on a daily basis and is trying to exact his revenge on the world.

    What a cunt.
