Do you have a problem returning things?

I always get so uncomfortable when I have to return a purchase that didn't work out for me! Even if the product is defective, I get so nervous. What's your return style? Confident or reluctant?

Rarely Make Returns

I think my return style is confident but I return less than one item a year on average. There have been times I wish I would have returned something but at the time I thought I'd just "live with it" even though it wasn't right for me or it was defective. There's also a few gifts that came with gift receipts that I've kept even though I don't make use of them.

Have you had any bad return experiences? Generally I find stores (including online stores) make returns easy.

I think perhaps my feelings come from my years in retail sales when I was a teen? Speaking specifically about retail clothing stores, the sales people work so hard to make the sale, so when I get home to find out that an item doesn't work for me, I feel so bad making the return. Especially knowing that some work on commission. I literally have at least 5 pieces in closet as we speak, that still have the tags attached, that I'll never wear, but I just can't bring myself to return them knowing how helpful the sales people were who helped me.
Shopping online is of course alot easier...
When it comes to cosmetics, even though I know stores like Sephora have great return policies, I just can't do it! Lol If I've purchased something that didn't work out from there, I donate to a friend who would like it.
I've never had a "bad" return experience, but I will say that the last time I remember making a return, it was for a pair of pricey jeans that ended up being too short for me, and let's just say that the sales girl was alot more friendly when I was purchasing them, than when I was making the return.🤷‍♀️

I hate doing returns. I am always so embarrassed...why?! Who knows...but that’s just me. I usually make my husband do it for me =p

Confident

You have to be confident :) If you are unhappy with the product, it's your right as a paying customer!

Yes, I am the same way, lol! I usually get other people to do it for me if possible, otherwise I'm a ball of nerves if I have to do it. Hahaha.

I am reluctant for sure! I also feel terrible but usually I will just suck it up and do it, especially if I paid good money for the product.

I have no problem doing returns but I only return things that are defective or are unopened/tags attached and I keep my receipts. I am always friendly and polite and have never had any problems.

Not at all

I never feel bad to return an item to the store if defective or unopened or even if I have bought too many for my needs (like hardware stuff). I have worked at the return/service desk of an hardware stuff for years during studying at university and if you are confident and tell the truth to the employee, nothing could go wrong :-)
