Can’t Hold A Candle To Your Shopping List

, , , , , | Right | March 6, 2018

(I am doing my weekly shopping at the local store that always has the best produce and bulk goods. I have a cart full, as does the customer behind me. In front of me is a young couple — probably tourists, since this is tourist season. They have four candles in their hands.)

Couple: “What kind of discount can you offer us for this?”

Cashier: “I’m afraid we don’t do discounts here.”

Couple: “But we’re buying a lot of stuff. Can’t you give us some kind of quantity discount?”

(At that point the customer behind me and I both burst out laughing. The couple turned around, saw our full carts, and quietly paid for the four candles.)
