    Me: “Welcome to ***, how may I help you?”

    Customer: “Yes, I was calling about a corner fireplace you are supposed to have on sale.”

    Me: “Yes ma’am, let me get you a price on that and check our stock.”

    (I leave, check the sale price ($299), and come back to the phone.)

    Me: “Ma’am?”

    Customer: “Yes?”

    Me: “Looks like the unit is $299.99 on sale.”

    Customer: “WHAT? I have a piece of paper right here that says it should be $315!”

    Me: “Oh, sorry. I said it’s on sale for $299.”

    Customer: “What the h***, it says it right here on my piece of paper! Corner fireplace for $315!

    Me: “Ma’am, $299 is less than $315.”
