Consumer Incivility: A Control Restoration Mechanism
Published in The Assocation Of Consumer Research
Volume: 12
Pages: 78 - 78

Control-deprived consumers perceive more service failures and they react to such failures with incivility. Consumer incivility is a control restoration mechanism. Our initial experiment indicates support for our argument.
