    Additionally, a Nintendo representative told Japanese media outlet Kyodo News: “We made the decision after concluding that our customers would understand because of the reputation we have built for faithfully responding to them.

    To be fair, it goes without saying that we should be kind to others. Also, no matter how frustrating a situation might be. Also, I am a firm believer that being rude or yelling at customer service staff gets you nowhere. In any case, it can make everyone’s day worse.

    Everyone can be nasty or nice.

    That being said, as someone who spent years behind the counter in retail, some customers can be pretty awful. However, I have also encountered my fair share of rude staff with a lack of understanding of the situation at hand.

    In other words, be nice, treat yourself with respect, and hopefully we’ll all get a positive outcome. Maybe.
