No Signs Of Old Age

(An older customer approaches me.)

Customer: “Hi, the woman up front rang me up wrong. This shirt is supposed to be $17.99.”

Me: “Ma’am, I’m the one that put up the signs. I assure you they’re correct. Why don’t I go double check it for you?”

(I check the signs.)

Me: “I checked the signs, and they’re correct. The shirts on the rack are $26.99, but the capris on the rack are $17.99.”

Customer: “But I read $17.99! The sign was right above the shirts!”

Me: “Yes, but there’s only so many spots for signs on a rack. The sign says ‘Capris’ right underneath the price. There’s also a sign for the shirts on the same rack.”

Customer: “Well you should talk to your manager, because old people can’t read!”
