Model Answer:

No matter how hard we try, we can't control our emotions all the time. Though I like to consider myself a composed person, I am only human. So, a few months ago, I got furious when a shopkeeper violated my rights as a consumer. Thank you for this topic and the time, and I will share the experience with you.

I purchased a rice cooker from a moderately large electronic shop last June. It was manufactured and marketed by a famous electronics brand. It cost me over 180 dollars, and the shopowner specifically mentioned that it came with a 2-year replacement warranty. To be sure about the warranty, I asked him again and he replied that if my rice cooker malfunctions or does not work as expected, he would replace it with a new one.

Unfortunately, just three months after the purchase, when my rice cooker stopped working, and I returned to the store with expectations to get a replacement, the shop owner denied giving any warranty! He even started lying that he never promised a replacement warranty. That's when I got mad. When I failed to reason with him, I got furious with rage.

At that time, I felt like I should call my friends and give this rogue businessperson a lesson. Initially, I was calm, but when he accused me of lying instead of keeping his promises, I lost my temper. My voice raised significantly, and a few curious eyes were looking at me! Within 10 minutes or so, I left the store and promised myself never to go to this shop again, and also make a written complaint to the Consumer Rights Federation - which I did and got a replacement warranty and an "apology" from the storeowner after a couple of weeks later.
