A Sneaky Sale

, , , , , , | Right | January 24, 2020

(I am working the checkout at a women’s clothing store. We sell relatively cheap jewelry by the registers.)

Customer: “Can I go show my wife this bracelet? I’m not sure if she will like it.”

Me: “Please do not take unpaid merchandise out of the store.”

Customer: “I’m not going to steal it!”

Me: “Oh, I know, but it’s store policy.”

Customer: “Well, can I leave something so you know I will be back?”

Me: “Sure, you can leave money.”

Customer: “How much?”

Me: *responds with the amount stated on the tag* “I’ll even take a credit card to make it easy for you.”

(The customer happily pays and leaves.)

Next Customer: *bewildered* “Did that really happen?!”
