Failing The Sick Trick

Me: “Okay, sir. Your total is $87.19.”

Customer: “I have cancer.”

Me: “I’m sorry?”

Customer: “I have cancer. What’s my total now?”

Me: “Still $87.19, sir.”

Customer: “What? I’m dying from cancer and you’re going to charge me an outrageous amount?”

Me: “Sir, my mother had cancer. She can’t smell or taste anything anymore. She doesn’t get a discount when we eat out just because she can’t smell or taste it.”

Customer: “I refuse to pay full price.”

Me: “How long have you been in treatment?”

Customer: “Two years.”

Me: “What kind of cancer?”

Customer: “Lymphoma?”

Me: “Hodgkin’s or Non?”

Customer: “Non…?”

Me: “Large cell or small cell?”

Customer: “Large?”

Me: ”I must say, sir, you have an amazing wig! I almost thought it was your real hair!”

Customer: “This IS my real hair!”

(The customer pauses, and then realizes what has happened.)

Customer: “F*** you!” *storms out*
