A Sale Is Half-Empty Kind Of Person

| Working | March 4, 2015

(My mom likes to joke a lot.)

Saleswoman: “And right now, all of our sweaters are 50% off.”

Mom: *joking* “So if I buy one, the bottom half will just unravel?”

Saleswoman: *completely serious* “No, actually, it means we take 50% off the price.”

(I don’t know whether she had failed to understand my mom’s joke, or if she’d just dealt with too many customers who would have legitimately misunderstood “50% off.”)
