Deals Of Coupons Past

, , , , | Right | March 12, 2020

(My managers received an email a few days ago warning them to be on the lookout for fake coupons. This happens in the drive-thru.)

Me: “Welcome to [Restaurant]; what can I get for you?”

Customer: “I have a coupon here that’s a little bit expired. Do you take expired coupons?”

Me: “Usually we can. What is it for?”

Customer: “It says a free [cheeseburger] with purchase of fries and drink.”

(This is a very common coupon, sent out with every set of coupons.)

Manager: *to me* “How old is it?”

Me: *to customer* “How long has it been expired?”

Customer: *sheepishly* “A while…”

Me: “What’s the date on it?”

Customer: “Um… 2011…”

Manager: *shakes her head*

Me: “No, you cannot use that coupon.”

(She ended up ordering something completely different.)
