When you got to the dry cleaners and they have replaced all the red buttons on your nice shirt with red/pink cheap buttons, and you lose it. You see my dry cleaners broke the very top two buttons on the collar of my shirt and attempted to sew on white buttons. Did I mention this is a red shirt with red buttons? They thought some how I wasn’t going to do notice these cheap a** white buttons on the top (that btw were cheaply sewed on to the shirt complete with white string hanging down). So, when I pick it up on Sunday I get upset and tell them to just take off the white buttons. I get a call on Monday where they informed me they want to replace my buttons but could not match the color. Would I like Black or Pink buttons! I told them to stop, cease and desist. Do not do anything with the buttons.
So, I show up today to get my shirt and they have replaced all my good nice matching red buttons with some sort of cheap red/pink button! So I ask them what happened to the many good buttons that lined my shirt???? They threw them away! So now I have a nice red shirt with off color cheap a** buttons of which will need to be replace when I find the time to go find nice buttons that match. I am literally in the Cleaners asking the staff in a loud voice, “Does this look good to you? Does this look like it matches?” They gave me nothing but blank stares and when I realized there was nothing they could do to fix this I left and told them I would return when hell freezes over.
In the realm of things it is just a shirt and really not a big deal. In hind sight, I think perhaps it was a language barrier that caused the problem. I should have known by the original strange look on the face of the “manager” that they did not understand my issue with the white buttons. Perhaps I should have just smiled and thanked them for the new cheap ugly off color buttons, and kept it to myself that I would not return. It’s just the principle of the thing; I paid you to dry clean a shirt, not to give me some new clown look!
