    Customer: “Do you work in this department?”

    Me: “No, but I’d be happy to help you if you have a question.”

    Customer: “How does this rebate work?”

    Me: “This is an instant rebate. All you need to do is to take the item to any register and you’ll get the item for the rebate price.”

    Customer: “How long does it take?”

    Me: “Our instant rebates happen instantly.”

    Customer: “Do I get a store credit, or something?”

    Me: “No, you get the rebate right away, so you just pay a lower price.”

    Customer: “I don’t have a lot of time today. How long does it take?”

    Me: “It happens instantly, ma’am.”

    Customer: “Maybe I should find someone who works in this department!” *walks off*
