The business asserted that while a discount or future credit might be in order, receiving the bungled order for free was out of the question unless the merchandise was returned.

For a time, the business let things cool off and then approached the man a few days later. The business asserted that they could certainly negotiate a lower price or price concession on future orders due to the mishap but that non-payment was not going to be accepted or tolerated.
