    Math Is Your Friend, Part 2

    | Ohio, USA |

    (I used to work at a sandwich shop. We were having a special where you could get four or more of our smaller sandwiches for $2.99 each. Some customers don’t understand the concept of simple.)

    Customer: “Do you have any specials today?”

    Me: “Yes, you can get four or more 6″ subs for $2.99 each.”

    Customer: “Do I have to get four?”

    Me: “Yes.”

    Customer: “Why? I’ll only be able to eat one.”

    Me: “The computer won’t let me ring up the deal unless you order four or more sandwiches.”

    Customer: “Okay, then I’ll get four turkeys.”

    (The customer goes through his sandwich-topping business, and we finally make it to the register.)

    Me: “Okay, four 6″s comes to $11.96.”

    Customer: “I thought they were only $2.99 each.”

    Me: “They are. Four times $2.99 is $11.96.”

    Customer: “I think you’re charging me too much. Can I see a receipt?”

    Me: *prints a receipt*

    Customer: “Your prices are wrong, I know it!”

    (I take out a calculator and does the math. It comes out to $11.96.)

    Customer: “Oh…I still don’t understand, but whatever!” *pays and leaves*
