    This Is Why We’re In A Recession, Part 20

    | Scotland | At The Checkout, Money

    Scotland, UK

    (A customer comes to the counter with a cauliflower, and a bag of potatoes.)

    Me: “Okay, that’s £3.36.”

    Customer: “What? How much is the cauliflower?”

    Me: “It’s £1.36.”

    Customer: “£1.36? That’s ridiculous! That’s about twice the price of [local supermarket]. I can’t afford to pay that much on my pension!”

    Me: “Would you like me to take it off?”

    Customer: “Yes please. I can’t possibly afford it. Oh, and can you give me two £5 scratch-cards please?”
