Can’t Discount Either Method

, , , , | Right | January 13, 2020

I work in the office of a regional park, selling park vehicle permits. Occasionally, we get a customer asking if we offer any sort of discounts — senior discount, veteran discount, etc. Unfortunately, we do not. 

Most people are understanding, if somewhat disappointed. If I think it will lighten the mood, I sometimes joke, “If it makes you feel any better, there’s no employee discount, either!”

This is a line I have been using for years to pretty good effect, but my supervisor recently improved on it:

“Well, I’d let you use my employee discount, but I don’t get one.”

I may have to adopt her version.
