An Obvious Sign Of Laziness

Customer: “So, that sign over there says you need the store card to get the sale price.”

Me: “Yes?”

Customer: “Does that mean I have to have the card?”

Me: *Slowly, disbelieving* “If the sign says you need the card… do you need the card?”

Customer: *In a “duh” voice* “Yeah?!”

Me: “Yes.”

Customer: “That’s not fair! I’m not from here! I don’t have the card!”

Me: “You can fill out the form to get the card at the customer service desk.”

Customer: “No, that’s idiotic! I can’t be bothered to go to all that trouble! And I don’t want to go the trouble of carrying your stupid card around!”

Me: “Then I’m afraid you’ll have to pay full price, sir.”

Customer: “Well, how was I supposed to know that?!”

Me: “That’s what the sign is there for.”

Customer: “No! That’s too confusing!”

Me: “You’re right. We really should have a sign that explains it.”

He slams the package of cheese he’s been asking about down on my counter before walking away.

Customer: “F****** smarta** motherf*****!”

I got written up for that, but I’d do it again ten times out of ten.
