In "EP 9: Is the Customer King?" of the “One Eye Deer” Podcast, we discover if customers are always right when dealing in business.
Mr. Mus, the owner of a renovation company, put his right hand man, Nico, in charge while he had to travel overseas for a couple of days for a business trip.
The day Mr Mus left, a customer called Mr. A sauntered into the office with his wife. Mr A looked at Nico head to toe and scoffed. But he nevertheless explained to Nico what he wanted, Nico noted Mr A's needs and demands, and worked out a quote and presented it to Mr A.
Mr A looked at the quote with a horrified face and said that the price is ridiculous and must be wrong. He scolded Nico and said he must not know what he is doing.
4 days later, Mr A returned when Mr Mus was back from his business trip, with Mr A complaining about Nico being useless and incompetent and overcharged him in his quotation.
Mr Mus looked up and said, it seems Nico made quite a big error, the fee for renovation is not $60,000, it should be $110,000 but he will give a 10% goodwill discount for the mistake.
Mr A was shocked and did not know how to respond, and stormed off.
Why did this happen? Was Mr Mus right to manage the customer in this manner?
