An angry T-Mobile customer in Manchester decided to smash up a company store over the weekend, much to the delight of passers-by, who filmed the odd outburst with glee as store employees called police.

The man, 42-year-old Jason Codner, was said to be enraged over the store’s failure to issue a refund he felt was owed.

Realizing they would not comply, he began calmly and methodically tearing the store apart, starting with the wall displays, then whole pieces of furniture, and finally began spraying a fire extinguisher, as if to merely cause additional cleanup work.

In a video published to youTube, Codner gives himself up peacefully and without incident once police arrive. A T-Mobile spokesperson told The Manchester Evening News that the store will reopen as soon as possible.

This video was published to YouTube on Sunday, July 1, 2012.
