    Customer: “Hi, can you tell me about your Educator Appreciation Weekend?

    Me: “Sure! Teachers normally get 20% off on things they buy for their classroom.”

    Customer: “Okay, so how do I prove that I’m a teacher?”

    Me: “Do you have a pay stub from your school?”

    Customer: “No.”

    Me: “Do you have a school ID?”

    Customer: “No.”

    Me: “Do you have a card from a teacher’s union?”

    Customer: “No.”

    Me: “Do you have a medical insurance card that shows that you’re on an educator plan?”

    Customer: “No.”

    Me: “Maybe a vision or dental insurance card?”

    Customer: “No.”

    Me: “Do you have a business card?”

    Customer: “No.”

    Me: “Do you have any letters from the school or district to you?”

    Customer: “No.”

    Me: “Is there a number I could call to verify your employment with a school?”

    Customer: “No.”

    Me: “Do you have anything, anything at all, with both your name on it, and the name of some kind of school or educational organization?”

    Customer: “No.”

    Me: “Well, I’m stumped. I can’t think of any other way that you could show that you’re a teacher.”

    Customer: “Wow, you really don’t make this easy for us, do you?”
