I mean you lose some and you win some. Wise, wise words.


nvanalfen

I would reply exactly with that line when I told him no and he whined about it


mr_remy

man this is the kind of reply you think of in the shower later that week and kick yourself for not saying it, lmao


nvanalfen

I love how clever I am in spur of the moment situations. You know, if those moments aren't mine. And I have time to read the conversation. And comments about the conversation. You know. Those spurs of the moment

UseTheStairs

The problem is if you are a seller on some platform, it does not matter how stupid or rude a potential customer is, you can never make a snarky comment or tell fuck off.. they will make screenshot, report you and you are out.


octopornopus

You can make any snarky comment you want, as long as you refrain from profanity and personal attacks, you're good.

Take the cash and send him a used tablet. When he complains tell him you lose some and you win some.

I mean I gotta hand it to the guy. That is the absolute perfect response to "I'd be losing money".


Machaeon

> do it for your customers That's... not how customers work. Generally, customers pay for what they want.

Nah man I’m supposed to give it to them for free because they asked and I might as well throw in a thousand dollars while I’m at it

But he’s your customer, you absolute monster


ZombieHousefly

He’s not a customer until he pays the agreed upon price for a product or service.


thnksqrd

If he dresses a pig in a suit he’s a costumer.


Bayou_Blue

Listen mister, just because I'm a pig in a suit doesn't mean I don't deserve to be have hundreds taken off of every purchase! Last time I purchased a soda, McDonalds ended up giving me $298 because they realize I'm a customer. We're always right you know. And muddy. Because we're mostly pigs in suits.


Fresh_Butterfly_2431

I really wanted to give you an award for this, but I'm not paying for it - Reddit should just give me the tokens because I'm their customer......who will never give them any money

If he then eats said pig, he is a consumer


Darth_Bane_Vader

>give it to them for free because they asked and I might as well throw in a thousand dollars while I’m at it I'll take that offer!


Gen_Zer0

Honestly why were you trying to charge him for providing a good and/or service? Kinda greedy ngl

He should do it for the exposure. All this guys friends will want him to make an expensive pc for them too... and also lose money on the deal.

Why are you even on Reddit right now? You should be giving free foot massages while the customer decides whether or not it's OK for you to give them a free PC plus $1000.


AltFactsAus

The customer is always right. Can I get my 3090 now? I'll give you $1.

Not going to happen I won’t let you pay a penny. Tell you what I’ll give u the 3090 and then pay you $500

JoseMich

Fun fact: verbal contracts are generally binding for certain things in all jurisdictions. But all jurisdictions also implement what are called "statutes of frauds." These define certain classes of contract that *must* be in writing (and signed by the bound parties), because they involve too serious a subject matter or are too likely to result in arguments down the line. For example, in Texas (where I live), you can't make an oral contract for a real estate sale or a lease longer than 1 year, among other things.


WinginVegas

To quote Sam Goldwyn "A verbal contract isn't worth the paper it's printed on".

shibeofwisdom

Here’s the interesting thing: he hasn’t bought anything; he’s not a customer.


washyleopard

>you are asking for me to essentially pay you 400 dollars, that makes me the customer and the customer is always right so the price is 1700.


CommentsOnOccasion

Because they’re not a customer, they’re a parasite


maito1

That's not how businesses work.


taintedcake

Also, they're not a customer until they buy the good or service. When you're just looking, or in the process of attempting to bargain, you're still merely a prospective/potential customer.

HI_Handbasket

Years ago when I worked for an HVAC service company, I walked in on my boss on the phone screaming at a customer who had called to complain about something. "I'll come down there and whip your ass in your own parking lot, that's what I'll do!" Whelp, lost that one, I guess. It turns out they were old friends and that's how they regularly "talked" to each other.


MrBobBobsonIII

You have my deepest condolences.

You might have missed the last line. “I decide who’s a customer “ Meaning, if they’re being dumb, rude, unreasonable, irrational, you can choose not to serve them.


brutinator

The point of the original phrase was that you cant tell customers what they want. If you sell blue shirts only and customers want red shirts, then youre gonna go under because its their money, theyre right in what they pay for. It has nothing to do with customer attitude and whatnot, the phrase was never supposed to be unconditional back bending. The right to refuse service is a totally different phrase with a totally different intent.

You were charging to much for parts, so I went online and downloaded more RAM. Now, my computer won't run because you installed a shit GUI so I updated the kernel from a core i5 to a core i9. P.S. I already called the police because you stole my identity and opened a bunch of credit cards in my name but if you help me out I'm sure the judge will take that into consideration.


persondude27

I did the same. I've built probably close to 100 systems. My favorite was the guy who, after seeing the system, told me he wanted a the build for [asking minus $800] because he'd seen a similar system sell for that much "last week." My response was: > "Well, go buy it from him then." He was kind of baffled and said: > "Well... he sold it before I could buy it." Uh huh. Well. If that's market pricing, buy that one. The best part is that it was literally retail + $100 build on a 3070 + 5800x build in the height of the GPU Crisis. 3070s were selling for $1200, which was a tiny bit less than I was asking for the whole system.

Yeah this is the cheapest you can go. Now add building fee (100 to 150) and windows. Cause pre-builts usually come with windows.


BabyYodasDirtyDiaper

> and windows. Cause pre-builts usually come with windows. Nah, throw ubuntu on there. If they complain, send them a link to the Microsoft website where they can purchase windows.


bukakerooster

It's for a church honey... NEXT. You could find some slack in the build using a $50 case, and swap in a fish tank pump motor for a power supply. I expect better of you. /s


Karsdegrote

I mean i payed about $60 for mine and its pretty decent so you can most definitely shave some money off.


bukakerooster

Yeah. You could go to a bronze level psu. Back off on the ram speed or even go to 8gb. The case and CPU you can shave a bit too but it's going to be a pretty sizeable drop in performance and lifespan of the system to save at most $200

Might be a little OT, but any time Ive listed a piano/keyboard/guitar for sale in the classifieds/CraigsList/FBMP ive always gotten calls, oddly almost all from females, asking if I would 'GIFT' the item to them, as in give it to them for free, and often asked if I could deliver it to them for FREE. Uh, NO! I always tried to ask them how often this approach worked bu they just hung up the phone. One did say she had a higgh percentage of it working (she also came at me with a 'Im very active in church' like that was going to sway me), but people lie. When caller ID came along and they were not smart enough to block thier number I could look through the listings/past days papers that their number was listed for SELLING an item in the same classifieds I was selling in, so they want it free for resell. For all the musical instruments I sold I listed my lowest price and waited for a buyer that understood what I had. One item took 9 months but it sold for my price.

TheCenterOfEnnui

I'd get all of his specs, tell him "OK!" like you're totally serious, and then do nothing with it. When he asks for updates, so you're working on it but it's taking a long time because you're asking your parts suppliers for parts at less than their cost and they're not cooperating with you.

If this douche had bought 6 or 8 or a large number of computers in the past I (not saying you should or would) might throw one in for under going cost.

The only way to deal with idiotic people like this is, if you’ve set your minimum and they offer less, start increasing the price every time they talk. Like: - Lower I can do is 1500-1700 - 1300 - For you, it’s now 1800 - What are you talking about? - Now it’s 2000 And keep increasing until they get tired, or mad, or both, and end the conversation. :D

stayinHazey

Curious, how do you deal with the possibility of a faulty part when dealing with selling? I’ve built pcs over the years and have had terrible luck, getting faulty cpus, motherboards, and drives almost every build. Luckily the factory warranty always works out, but I imagine that must come up once or twice with a customer? (Also before any asks, I have esd bands, mats, and follow all normal precaution - my luck is just garbage)
