I was working at a supermarket chain a few years back.
One afternoon, a customer at another cashier’s register hears something he doesn’t like. Apparently he had tried to buy something that was not included in the weekly sale.
The manager had already come over to explain everything to him, but it wasn’t good enough for this guy.
“Sir, the sale is only on Coca Cola products. This is a Pepsi product”
“I don’t care what your circular says that’s from last week! Coke is on sale this week!”
“No, sir, I’m sorry but this one is current, this sale just started today.”
“You’re telling me that because you started this new sale today you’re going to ignore the ad that I have here in my hand?”
“I’m sorry sir, our sales change every two weeks, and once the new sale starts, we can’t honor the previous one without a rain check.”
“This is ridiculous! I KNOW [owner] AND I AM NOT HAPPY. I WON’T BE COMING BACK, AND YOU’LL BE HEARING FROM CORPORATE!”
He then proceeded to grab the shopping cart and stormed out of the building in a rage.
The customer behind him in line stood there looking around, confused for a few minutes, until the angry customer came back in, red faced with the cart in tow… And returned it to the customer behind him.
It was the wrong cart! This guy was so invested in telling the cashier and manager that they were wrong that he wound up humiliating himself in the process!
