Victim blaming

This afternoon I called Speedo about a bathing suit purchase that had just been delivered to my office:

"Hi, I need to return a swimsuit. It's not worn and the tags haven't been removed. Can I just send it back in?"

"Why do you need to return it?"

"It's see-through."

"So you don't like the color?"

"No, it's see-through. The color's fine. It's the transparency that's a problem."

"What color is it?"


"You probably shouldn't buy a white swimsuit if you don't want it to be see-through."

"I figured you guys had that see-through issue covered at your end. You know, the end where you design the functional racing swimsuits."

Clearly this is my fault.

Whatever happened to "the customer is always right"?

How rude. I don't think I would order from them any longer.
