A Quarter-Pound For A Whole Jerk

, , , | Right | November 28, 2020

A customer asks for a quarter-pound of sliced turkey — 0.25 on the deli scales — which is easy enough. I slice 0.28 pounds.

Customer: *Angry* “That’s not a quarter-pound! Don’t you know what you’re doing?!”

I take a slice off, which weighs 0.27 pounds.

Customer: “NO!”

I keep reslicing it until it comes out to 0.26 pounds, which I guess is okay for him. He takes his turkey and storms off.

One of the cashiers approached me later and told me that this guy called me an idiot for not knowing what a quarter-pound was.
