Although we do our best to provide our customers with top-quality merchandise at a reasonable price on time, the fact is we retail for only one supplier and there are no alternative sources for our products.

Delays can happen, and we do our best to inform our customers as soon as we ourselves have been informed. Most of the time our clientele are understanding and patient, but of course we offer full refunds--even if it means we end up paying for a surplus when the merchandise arrives.

Recently one of our customers has began a campaign of antagonism against our customer service department in response to being informed of such a delay. This customer has not asked for a refund, but proceeded immediately to serve numerous threats and accusations to our company. There is some background; this customer has experienced delays in the past, and also had merchandise recalled.

The customer is under the impression that we still owe them something for the recalled merchandise, although thorough apologies and full reimbursement were made, and that we are unreliable for not delivering on time--although we certainly inform all of our customers ahead of time that delays may occur, and has accused us of unscrupulous practices such as failing to refund cancelled orders--which has absolutely never happened.

Until a few days ago, we were on very good terms with this customer despite our history. This is one of our most reliable, repeat customers, but we are considering terminating this relationship nonetheless. Our customer service department cannot appease sheer antagonism and we do not make enough profit to warrant such disregard for common courtesy.

TBQH OP, it sounds like you either need to put in more assurance into your sales or prevent your company from taking order it can't fulfill, as well as beef up your quality assurance for your products to be worth buying in the first place. I am not sure about the logistics of it, but you may be the one in need here more so than them, and in this way you might need to rethink about why it is you're bitching about it on 7chan's /b/, than dealing with the issue head on with the customer in question.

>think about why it is you're bitching about it on 7chan's /b/
Even if no one had advice to offer, it's still just a relief to get the thing out without having to worry that anyone who shouldn't be reading it will. This is where I come to meditate, out loud; sharing helps with the stress.

>put in more assurance into your sales
What do you mean by this? We provide all the assurance we can, given that the date and time our supplier provides us is always approximate and sometimes delayed. We never fail to inform our customers that the delivery date is approximate, or when it can be expected if it has been delayed. That said, this customer has repeatedly tried to elicit promises from us that we cannot, and will not make and is of course accusing us of having broken promises we did not make.

>prevent your company from taking order it can't fulfill
Most of the time this is not a problem. We do experience delays, as we depend on a single supplier who has their own problems with production, but never failure, and our customers are aware of our limitations.

>quality assurance for your products
We retail the finest products available in the region. None of our competitors can claim anything close to the quality of our merchandise. We have a reputation for this that we are quite proud of.

>you may be the one in need here
It would be wonderful if we could rely on our supplier to deliver on time, or if we could source from multiple suppliers, but it is simply not possible. There are some other suppliers of similar products, but their quality is inferior, their prices are higher, and they can't deliver any more reliably than ours.

Actually there are no laws entitling consumers to conduct what amounts to a campaign of harassment against a company they are doing business with, even if that company has wronged them. It doesn't sound like you wronged the customer in any way, so that puts you in an even better position (espcially if you can prove it).

Now, from the legal perspective, the customer spreading false rumors about you (if you can prove they're untrue) could be actionable if it can be demonstrated that this negatively impacted on your business.

In the US, truth is a defense against libel or slander charges, however in other countries like the UK or Australia, truth is *not* generally a defense. That means in some countries (but not the US) you don't even have to prove the rumors are false, just that they're doing harm to you. In the US you do have to prove they're false, but it sounds like this should be easy.

As for the harrassment, if you can show it is disruptive, and that it is having a negative impact on your business (including emotional stress for your employees) this would also be potentially actionable.

At this point you should consider gathering evidence of his harrassment (your phone company can help with this, showing a record of inbound phone numbers, which would indicate how often he is calling you, plus of course the emails that have been sent to you (or about you) are evidence). Then consult with your lawyers to obtain their advice about what steps are appropriate to take if the customer does not ammend his ways.

Depends on how much money I have. If I had enough money I'd buy them via an LLC, use them for target practice and then write off the purchase cost off my taxes as depreciation.

Dreads as a Symbol of Black Culture
When non black people in the modern west wear dreadlocks, they are appropriating an aspect of black culture. This is a microaggression. Dreads and other natural hairstyles are undeniably deeply connected to black culture, and are therefore seen as a negative trait because of institutional racism. Black people lose jobs over this. They lose credibility in some cases. Non black people do not face the same consequences for having dreadlocks, and do not have the same cultural context to dreads. It is appropriation and harms the black community.
Black people straightening their hair is assimilation. Because of the aforementioned institutional racism and eurocentric western ideals, natural hair is not widely accepted. Therefore, black people often straighten their hair to assimilate (fit into, be accepted as part of, etc) into western culture. Straight hair is not deeply connected to nonblack culture, and does not have the same cultural context as dreads. It is not symbolic in any way to non black people, and if anything has been used to distinguish us from black people and further categorize society. Therefore it is not a microaggression or appropriation. It is assimilation and is not damaging to non black communities. Negative repercussions or discrimination for naturally straight hair is nearly unheard of.
Dreads and other black natural hairstyles are not a cultural norm. They are seen as untidy or dirty. This dates back to slavery and continues today. Dreads are and have been connected to black people in America because they form naturally with textured black hair, which is a unique trait not found in other hair types. Also, hair has been used as a way to "other" people. This happened with red hair and continues to happen with black natural hair. As a species, humans like to categorize and generalize people and things, and that is the heart of institutional racism. That is why dreads in many places are not allowed, or why French Muslim girls may not wear hijabs to school. When a non black individual dons dreads in America, they do so despite this context. They are not judged as harshly for their hair. They do not face the same stereotypes that black people face.
One might argue that nonblack individuals who have dreads are also judged negatively by mainstream society. While this is true, these stereotypes exist because of the connection with black hairstyles to exoticism (like afros, "voodoo magic"/witch doctor stereotype) and also to negative racial traits. Before the 1960s, dreads and afros were worn exclusively by black people. It wasn't "in vogue" so to speak for non black Americans to wear them. Now that there's a certain disconnect between dreads and black people, the negative connotations with dreads would extend to other races as well. The backlash against dreads has racist undertones, and would definitely affect non b Message too long. Click here to view the full text.
