I think I was an over-entitled line-crossing customer...
I bought a pound of bacon yesterday from the glass case in my local supermarket's butcher's department. I went straight home and It was properly refrigerated. Today I open the bacon for the first time and it has green fuzzy mold growing on it.
I brought the bacon back to the supermarket and showed it to the worker at the customer service counter. I told her I just want to get more bacon I don't need a refund, so she sent me back to the butcher to get more bacon.
When I went back to the butcher's department I thought "Heck, I should get an extra half pound. After all bacon bought yesterday should not go moldy today. I had to burn the gas and take the time to drive back and return it. Courtesy bacon is due." So asked for a pound and a half when they packed it up for me.
So I brought my bacon plus one extra 1/2 pound back to the counter and the girl said it has to be the same amount. I said I think I should get a little extra because this was an inconvenience. I wasn't mean, and I kept my tone friendly throughout the entire transaction. The store manager came over and reluctantly agreed to let me just have the extra half pound.
I think I crossed the line. I'm not sure, but driving home at first I thought "Good for me. That was inconvenient so I was assertive, stuck up for myself and got a little something extra for my trouble." Then I just felt guilty the more I thought about it. I think I was unreasonable to just take the extra half pound and act like I deserved it. Honest opinions?
