Coupon From The Dawn Of Time

, , , | Right | January 1, 2021

I work in a fast food restaurant famous for their chicken sandwiches. A lady comes in with her family, and in the middle of the order, she shows me a coupon on her phone for a free sandwich.

This isn’t too unusual, although it’s usually a card we give out, but okay. I look at it for ten seconds and realize several things: it’s a screenshot from a Google search, it’s from a completely different state, and it’s from nine years ago.

Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am, but that’s not a coupon from our location.”

I don’t say that I know she picked the first Google image she saw or that it’s almost as old as the son she has with her.

Customer: “Well, this is the coupon they emailed me last time when they got my order wrong, but whatever…”

We usually don’t email coupons when an order is wrong. I want to applaud her for trying to use a coupon but… next time, I’d suggest not using that one.
