Double Price Double Standards

| IN, USA | Working | January 2, 2014

(It is my lunch break and I am doing some Christmas shopping at my store. I find a shirt for my mother that clearly has a orange sticker that says it’s $9. I go to the self check out and call my coworker over.)

Me: “This shirt come up as $12, and the tag says $9. Can you please change it?”

Coworker: “No. If it comes up as that price, then that’s how much it costs!”

Me: “But it says clearly right here—”

Coworker: “I don’t care what it is! Now, I have other stuff to do!”

(It is super slow. Right now it’s just an elderly man and me at the self check out.)

Me: “Just void out my whole order.”

Coworker: “No! You scanned it, you are going to pay for it! Don’t make me call the boss!”

(I walk away without paying and leave the stuff there for her to pick up. Later, I tell my other coworker, who is also a good friend, what happened.)

Friend: “She always thinks that she’s better than every girl who comes in! She won’t say anything to me, just watch.”

(We both go the self check out. The shirt I was going to buy my mom is still in a cart where we keep things guests don’t want. My friend grabs it and scans it, and calls my coworker over.)

Friend: “Hey! This is supposed to be $9. See the tag?”

Coworker: “Oh, of course! I will change it right away!”

(The coworker changes it for him. She turns around, sees me, and smirks. I walk over and pay for the shirt.)

Me: “Thanks, [Friend’s Name]!”

Coworker: “You are not allowed to do that!”

Me: “I just did.”
