It hardly rates a letter to corporate to take care of something like this.
I don't recall saying anything about writing to Corporate. This is not Corporate:
It sounds like something that the store might want to take a quick look at
It appears you have my post mixed up with someone else's.
And, yes, I used the word "gash." It, apparently, wasn't actually that bad. It was just a word I used - please excuse my perhaps using the wrong word for it. But it was an injury that was bleeding. And it was because of a part of a table that shouldn't cause an injury at all. Having someone at the store (whether that's a manager or even just the salesperson
) take a quick look at the table to make sure there isn't something sticking out that shouldn't be isn't too much to ask. It's probably something that quickly and easily able to be fixed. But it shouldn't nick someone's skin - regardless of how much of a "gash" it is. It's a table. Tables don't usually do that, in my experience, unless there's something sticking out that shouldn't be.
I hardly think a quick comment of "Oh hey, by the way, didn't know if you'd realized it, but that table over there has a board that's not quite nailed down properly*. Looks like it came loose and is now able to catch on people's clothes or skin. Might want to take a look at it to see if it can be fixed" is all that inappropriate. I've worked in stores before, and I can't imagine being offended as a salesperson by someone that called my attention to something that needed to be checked. It would seem to me that a store would appreciate a heads up that one of their products was broken/damaged.
*or whatever the problem is with the thing - I'm generalizing
ETA: I just realized where the word "gash" came in. I'd used that word in an earlier post to describe an injury I had - and it was a gash. It was deep and long and much more than your described paper cut. And it did require some medical attention. I, accidentally, carried the word from my story over to the post above. Forgive me.
