    Bad Company, Good Business

    | Detroit, MI, USA |

    (I’m a cashier, and a customer comes up to my register with a lock.)

    Customer: “Do you guys do price matching?”

    Me: “Yes, we do!”

    Customer: “Great. I’ll take it at the [medical supply store] price.”

    Me: “Alright, I’ll just need the print out.”

    Customer: “The what?”

    Me: “Well, I need proof that the other store has the same product for a lesser amount.”

    Customer: “Don’t you know what they sell it at?”

    Me: “Actually, I don’t believe they sell this at all.”

    Customer: “Well, just find a store that sells it at a lesser price and give me that!”

    Me: “Sir, I can’t do that. Unless you found the same item for a lesser price at another store, I have to charge you what our company sells it at.”

    Customer: “Why?”

    Me: “Because that’s business, sir.”
