    Even Owners Have A Stupid Quota

    | Taunton, MA, USA | Criminal/Illegal

    (A customer gives me a Canadian quarter. I refuse to accept it. He gets angry.)

    Me: “Sir, I can’t accept this quarter. It’s Canadian.”

    Customer: “So? I got it from somewhere in the US so you must accept it.”

    Me: “No, sir, I can not. My drawer will come up short.”

    Customer: “It’s not my fault someone gave me this quarter! Why should I take the blame for it? Take the quarter!”

    Me: “Oh, I see. So it is my fault, then?”

    Customer: “YES! Take the quarter!”

    (I take a quarter out of my pocket and then throw that Canadian quarter across the room to a trash can.)

    Customer: “Call your manager.”

    Me: *smiling* “I am the owner, sir. How can I help you?”
