Lets take another example, at a restaurant you see the waiter spit in your food. It's ok if they just cook you another dish because he could have spit in all your other food and you would have never known or tasted the difference?
What a ridiculous comparison.
A screw in the tread is not a big deal. It's still a new tire. A plug is going to have zero effect on the tire. It's not like it is sidewall damage. Then all this complaining would make sense.
OP, if I was you I would take the plug. I can only imagine how upset you would be if they scratched your rim installing another tire.
