Damaging Your Chances

| Right | February 10, 2015

(A husband and wife are browsing the store, with the wife wanting to buy things and the husband saying everything is too expensive. Finally she selects a figurine from our clearance rack.)

Husband: “Wait, this is only [price]? The one over there was [bigger price]. What’s the difference?”

Me: “This one is damaged, sir. It fell on the floor and the head broke off – you can see where I’ve glued it back on. It’s a clean break, but we can’t in good conscience sell it at the full price.”

Husband: “So if I get the other one and break it, you’ll sell it to me for the cheaper price?”

Me: “No, sir. I will call security because you’re intentionally damaging our merchandise.”

(They did buy the clearance figure, but hurried out without their receipt. To my knowledge, they’ve never come back.)
