    I Think She Wants A Discount

    , | Toronto, Canada | Top

    Trainee: “Hey, this woman would like to buy an iPod Touch. But she’s asking for a discount.”

    Me, to the lady customer: “Hi, so you’re interested in an iPod Touch?”

    Customer: “Discount?”

    Me: “Sorry, I can’t offer anything below our tagged price. It already has a guaranteed low price.”

    Customer: “Discount?”

    Me: “If you’re worried about money, you can choose to apply for a *** card (store’s credit card). With it you can buy this iPod Touch and have three months to pay interest-free.”

    Customer: “Okay, so I get a card and get a discount?”

    Me: “No, but you have three months to pay.”

    Customer: “What’s the price in three months?”

    Me: “It’s the same price as now.”

    Customer: “Okay. What’s the price after the three months?”

    Me: “It is the exact same price as you see here now. But with the card you get three months to pay for it.”

    Customer: “Discount?”

    Me: “Okay, let’s ring this up for you.”
