“I can’t do that……….”
Is talking to customers like this still going on?!?
Yes it is. Oy.
In this case, use ‘the language of cooperation’ solution; tell the customer what you can do, not what you can’t.
“Let me see what we can do to fix this.” Or, “Let me connect you with the person who can help you with this.”
Maybe you wouldn’t say either of these exactly this way, okay fine, but catch the spirit of this approach which is work to find how you can help rather than telling them how you can’t.

Repeating the obvious, until it is the norm.
