(While we maintain a rather impressive selection of sale books, that does not stop customers from attempting to haggle better prices for our products. One day, an older couple and one of their friends come into the store.)

Man: “Excuse me. You carry [Expensive Film Book]?”

Me: “It looks like we do. Let me show you where it is.”

(I take the customers over to the film section and show them the book.)

Man: “Yes, how much is it?”

Me: “Forty-five dollars, sir.”

Man: *to woman* “It’s forty-five dollars.” *to me* “No discount?”

Me: “No, sir, I’m sorry.”

(The couple and their friend leave, but a few months later, they return, and they ask for the same book. Thinking that they have decided to buy it despite the higher price, I take them back to the film section, only to go through a time-warp.)

Man: “And how much is the book?”

Me: “Forty-five dollars, sir.”

Man: *to woman* “Forty-five dollars.” *to me* “No discount?”

Me: *trying not to laugh* “No, sir, I’m sorry. Still no discount.”

(I have not seen them since, but I wonder if they’ve pulled this stunt with any of my coworkers!)
