A woman walked into a Los Angeles Costco with her Christmas tree in hand on January 4 and demanded her money back.

The unhappy customer allegedly said she wanted a refund because the tree was “dead,” according to WFLA.

One of the other customers caught the odd return and took a photo, which he shared it on Facebook.

Bored Panda shared Scott Bentley’s Facebook post — which has since been removed — describing the moment the woman casually plopped the tree down and asked for her money back:


People were quick to chime in with comments chiding the woman:


Some said they’d heard about crazy returns like this one before:

To paraphrase Scott’s post, sometimes, you just can’t make this stuff up.

What do you think? Was the customer’s request out of line?
