(I work at a greenhouse that is currently having a 50% off sale on EVERYTHING to move some inventory. A customer and her daughter come in and start looking around.)
Customer: “How much is this plant?” *pointing to large perennial*
Me: “Well, everything is 50% off right now so that would make it about $6.50”
Customer: That’s too much. I kill everything.
Me: “Oh. I’m sorry about that. Our annuals are only about $2 right now if yo-”
Customer: “I don’t want anything that won’t come back.” *walks away and continues browsing*
(She’s been there for about 45 minutes at this point and has made quiet a pile of plants that she wants to buy)
Customer: “Ok, I’m ready to check out.”
Me: *rings everything up* “Your total is $45.23”
Customer: “I can’t do that. *pause* “AND BY THE WAY my daughter used your port-a-potty in the back and it had rude language in it! I don’t want her exposed to thing like that!”
Me: “Uh… I’m sorry about that. I’ll try to take care of that, but it’s really not for customer use anyway…”
(She then proceeds to rant about our prices and makes me take one item off of her purchase at a time until it’s under $20.)
Customer: “Oh! If it’s only that much I’ll get two more herbs!”
(She finished checking out and left over half of her stuff in a pile on one of the work tables. It took me another 30 minutes to put everything back.)
