  • SOT: Anybody feel annoyed by entitled online shoppers?

    There's been a lot of this stuff going on recently, and it's annoying the **************** out of me. So I felt like venting.



    First off, I completely understand if you like money. I like money, too. But what's with the rash of grown adults feeling like they're entitled to buy something at some insane price and then feeling personally betrayed because they couldn't do so? I mean, seriously, really? Talk about sounding like a spoiled brat on Christmas.



    I guess I hardly ever haggle because I feel like I don't necessarily deserve money more than other people do, and it's good customers like me that give these entitled brats the margin they're working with...



    But really, people who bitch about someone not honoring a 180% price match on a typo on somebody's website... I'm sorry, but that's a bitch move. You're allowed to be upset, but only 13 year olds are allowed to feel actually upset over something like that for more than 30 minutes. If I ran a retailer and someone called me feeling entitled to such a deal, I would just laugh them off the phone. Unfortunately, I don't run retailers but I mean, ****************, people bend over backwards to even talk to these hagglers in the first place, please don't feel entitled.



    I didn't see anyone here bitch about it, so I can name this specific deal but Sweetwater was closing out the Vox Night Train heads for $249 a pop. These things were going for $400+ new everywhere, and Vox had a $100 rebate going. So naturally, they didn't honor the rebates for those who bought it for $249, and now there are buyers saying **************** like, "I'M NEVER BUYING A VOX PRODUCT AGAIN," ignoring that in the big picture, they bought a ****************ing Night Train for $249, which is a ****************ing good deal, and in what universe is a new Night Train worth $149, anyway? That's cheaper than a new Lil Night Train. Anyway, ****************ing entitled brats. Hate people like that.



    Sorry, had to vent.

    I rarely give a **************** about what anybody says online. The example cited above did not leave an impression.

        You're scoring pretty high on the Maslow scale when you've formed such a strong opinion about something like this ...
