Can’t Hold A Candle To Some Customers

| Right | August 3, 2017

(I am the customer in this story, attempting to buy a candle and use a coupon that should give me a free candle with a purchase over $20.)

Cashier: “Did you find everything you needed today?”

Me: “I did thanks. Also, I have this coupon.”

Cashier: “Ma’am, this is only good with the purchase of $20 or more.”

Me: “Yes, I know.”

Cashier: “No, I mean, you need to purchase something worth $20 to get the free candle.”

Me: “I know.”

Cashier: *stares at me in disbelief*

Me: “This candle is $22.50, right?”

Cashier: “Yeah, but you have to buy it.”

Me: *getting flustered* “I know. I want to purchase this one and get a free one! Don’t you have a free gift candle to give out or something?”

Cashier: *suddenly understanding* “Oh! No, you can pick out any candle you’d like in the store and get that for free. Actually, with deal we just started running, you can actually get two free candles!”

Me: “Oh. Oh, my gosh. I am so sorry. I’m one of ‘those customers,’ aren’t I?”

(In my defence, the coupon was extremely vague. At least she was nice!)
