    A Nasty Case Of Selective Illiteracyosis

    | Akron, OH, USA |

    (Back story: We had a buy 2, get 1 free sale right after Christmas. The sign clearly said “lowest item free”.)

    Customer: “Hi, I’d like to buy these…” *shows me two $2.99 games for the Gamecube* “…and get this one free.” *shows me a used copy of Halo 3 for $54.99*

    Me: “I’d like a million dollars.”

    Customer: “I’m serious!”

    Me: “So am I, sir. I’m sorry, thats not how the buy 2 get 1 free works. You’d get one of the $2.99 games free.”

    Customer: “THAT’S NOT WHAT THE SIGN SAYS! IT SAYS BUY 2 GET 1 FREE!”

    (I take the sign off wall and reads it to customer.)

    Me: “Buy 2 games get one free on all used games. Please note that the lowest priced item will be free.”

    Customer: “That’s not what the sign says! I’m going to sue you for false advertising!”

    Me: “Sir, I don’t believe you can sue me because you can’t read.”
