Best To Avoid The Void

, , , | Right | January 13, 2011

(I can’t cancel sales. If a customer doesn’t want an item, I must void it and it still appears on the next receipt with the deletion below. This conversation takes place after I voided a $30 CD player and another customer comes through.)

Customer: “The previous lady’s CD player is still on my receipt. I don’t want to pay for it!”

Me: “Sorry, madam, but if you look just below the CD player It says ‘Void CD Player’ and there is a -$30 next to it, meaning the money has already come off your total.”

Customer: *agitated* “I’m not very good at maths, but that doesn’t sound right. I don’t believe you.”

Me: “The total of your items was only $16.50. If you had to also pay for the CD player, it would have been $46.50. You only gave me $20.”

Customer: “I don’t believe you. If I figure out how you tricked me I’ll be back!”
