A Jewish Amazon Prime member interrupted the company’s annual shareholders meeting last week and asked CEO Jeff Bezos to help her return a Passover Haggadah to the online retail giant.

Bezos was conducted a Q&A session at the meeting in Seattle on Wednesday when Evie Schwerin asked, “Could you please return this for me?” proffering a Haggadah.

Schwerin had apparently ordered the Haggadah from Amazon and then realized that she already had a copy. According to tech news website GeekWire, she attempted to return the book four times, but was unsuccessful due to an incorrect email address, among other problems.

Bezos asked her to stay until the end of the meeting and said, “We’ll get that return taken care of.”

“My apologies that you had to use this unusual venue to accomplish what should be a much simpler task,” he added. “We’ll also look into the root cause of why that happened. Anybody else have anything they need to return?”
