Insane Customer Demands Refund for Her Own Vase She Ruined

We're not sure what kind of person tries to spray paint a four hundred dollar vase, but it makes sense that it's the same kind of person who demands that the store she bought it from pay for her mistake.

For a triumphant story of an employee who actually gave an awful customer a piece of their mind, check out this cashier who told off a Karen and lived.
