No one likes to get lectured, yet DaBaby had the willpower to sit through one store owner's power trip after accidentally providing the wrong billing info. 😂

While attempting to make an expensive purchase over the phone recently, DaBaby caught an earful from some dude who told the rapper he should be "embarrassed" after falsely assuming that he was attempting to steal someone's credit card info. Tf?

DaBaby recounted the bizarre incident with "buddy," noting that "he was dead ass too," in a series of Instagram Stories.

"[I] ordered some shit and paid for it over the phone," he said while lounging in a pink hoodie. "The total came out to like, a thousand and twenty-four dollars, and I got the zip code wrong on my billing address. And buddy, he cussed me out and called me broke and refused to get the correct zip code from me. And he told me, he said, 'Let me give you some advice, brother.

"If you're gonna steal people's cards and steal people's information, go buy shoes or something that you can resell and get money off of. At least make money. Don't call and try to get a thousand dollars worth of stuff. Like seriously, what are you gonna do with this? What are you doing? I would be embarrassed in myself if I was you.'"


Give credit to DaBaby for calmly responding, "Okay, sir," before ending the conversation, especially since he's had his fair share of anger management issues in the past.

As the mature 28-year-old puts it, the moral of the story is to "never judge a book by its cover" as that mistake could cost you money.

"I wish you the best of luck with your business," DaBaby told the person. "I just called somebody else."
