Really? Are you that self-absorbed? Although I have never been in this boutique, I have worked for both big and small businesses in Michigan for many years and I believe this is the most ridiculous complaint thus far. First of all, sounds like you never left the store. The way you make it sound was that it was ""she"" who pointed out the mistake to YOU. Knowing about business, it is a lie that you were out $600 for the next few days. That $600 would have never gone through that fast. It wouldn't even show on her bill if ""she"" corrected the mistake right away, which is what this sounds like. Therefore, there was NO inconvenience to you. Also, even if you had come back a day or two later, did you really need that supposed $600 for the next few days? Sounds like a bit of a desperate plea to cheat a store out of money. Makes me question your integrity and honesty. Unless you live under a rock, you should know that in this economy small businesses are struggling to stay afloat and asking for a discount on a new item is not only hurting the business, but is obnoxious. By the way, each time a business has to run a credit card or debit card through, they get charged and those fees add up. I think this is a petty gripe over a lousy $20 discount. I think it is YOU who should be apologizing to the store owner and employees for the hassle of such a ridiculous request. Or better yet, this boutique (along with others) is probably better off without cheapskate customers like you.
