A Dollar In The Hand Is Worth Zero In The Wallet

Me: “Your total is $10.27, ma’am.”

Customer: *waves a piece of paper* “Is this a coupon?”

Me: “Not exactly. If you put your email address on it, we’ll send it to corporate and they’ll send you store updates, which will also have a coupon in the first email you receive.”

Customer: “Oh, great! Thanks!” *turns to leave*

Me: “Ma’am, you still need to pay.”

Customer: “I just did.”

Me: “I don’t think so.”

Customer: “No?”

Me: “No, ma’am, you didn’t. Your total is $10.27.”

Customer: “Well, now I know I paid! I remember you saying $10.27 before.”

Me: “Yes, I did, but you didn’t pay me the last time I said it, either.”

Customer: “So, you know what that means?” *reaches for her unpaid items*

Me: *takes back her unpaid items* “…that you can’t have this until you pay for it?”

Customer: “I’m never shopping here again!”
