Sarah Belanger Demaneuf: Alabama Woman Gets Ultimate Retail Revenge
An Alabama woman identified as Sarah Belanger Demaneuf, has gone viral after she got the ultimate petty revenge on a ‘terrible’ customer. She was working at a local retail store in Huntsville 17 years ago, when she ran into the customer who wanted to purchase a 50 cent star ornament for 25 cents.
When the customer failed to get the bargain she wanted, next you knew was an outburst of anger and frustration.
Sarah said in a Facebook post on December 6;
‘A terrible woman (dressed to the nines and driving a high-end Lexus, so pretty well off) came into the store and wanted four star ornaments, but wanted to only pay 25 cents a piece.’
‘As we weren’t at a yard sale I said no and she started arguing with me, becoming increasingly rude and belligerent.’
Before you knew it, the customer was already threatening to take her business to another branch of the store in town the following day. Demaneuf reacted to this by saying, ‘I can’t guarantee they’ll still be here’.
The defiant customer replied;
‘There are 12 in the store. No one is going to buy all 12. I’ll get what I want, prepare to feel stupid tomorrow.’
At this point Demaneuf was enraged and came up with a sharp plan to ensure the woman wouldn’t get hold of a single star.
‘In an anti grinch moment my heart shrank three sizes and I bought all 12 star ornaments. I then called the other Huntsville store and bought ALL their ornaments. And just to be extra spiteful I bought all the star ornaments in Decatur and Florence,’ she said.
‘It was the most vengeful $30 I ever spent,’ she added.
When the customer returned the next morning, she was dumbstruck when she discovered all the star ornaments were sold. Demaneuf said:
‘The next morning she was at the store as soon as we had opened. I had the pleasure of telling her that ALL of the star ornaments in North Alabama had been sold to one customer. The look on her face was worth every penny spent.’
At the end of the day, Demaneuf kept just one of the star ornament then gave the rest to friends and family. She added:
’17 years later, I still smile when I hang it on my tree.’
