The Ghost Of Christmas Freebies

| Toronto, Canada | Uncategorized

(At the cash till beside me I hear this exchange.)

Customer: “You should be giving out candy canes.”

Coworker: “Pardon me?”

Customer: “It’s Christmas, you should be in the Christmas spirit! I want to know why you aren’t handing out candy!”

Coworker: “Well, it’s very busy today and we’re understaffed. If we were to take someone off of cash, people would have to wait far too long to purchase their books.”

Customer: “I don’t want to hear your excuses! Let me talk to your manager.”

Coworker: “He’s right there, two tills down.”

(My coworker takes the next person in line.)

Customer #2: “What was she complaining about?”

Coworker: “She was complaining that she wasn’t getting any free candy.”

Customer #2: *jokingly* “In that case, can I have a free puppy?”
