Should Have Paid Attention In School

(A customer places shoe boxes on the counter and stares at me.)

Me: “All set then?”

Customer: “Oh, yes. School.”

Me: *slightly confused* “Uh, yeah! Yeah I can’t believe school is starting already!”

Customer: *chuckles* “Heh… yeah. School.”

Me: *more puzzled* “Yeah, I know. So soon!”

Customer: “Where’s my 20% off?”

Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am?”

Customer: “Your website said if that if I said the word school in your store I get 20% off my purchase.”

Me: “I don’t think you read correctly, ma’am. We don’t have any sort of sale like that going on.”

Customer: “It says that if I say school I get a discount!”

Me: “I think you were supposed to text school and get a coupon code sent to your phone.”

Customer: “Well, school. Now give me my 20%.”

Me: “I’m sorry ma’am, I just can’t do that. We’re not running that kind of sale.”

Customer: “Well you should fix the internet, then! This is ridiculous!”
