Double The Price, Half The IQ

| Birmingham, England, UK | Working | April 1, 2014

(I’m buying a jacket, priced at £55. The cashier rings up my purchase.”

Cashier: “That’s £110, please.”

Me: “Oh, the tag says £55.”

Cashier: “Oh yes! I scanned it twice!”

Me: *after waiting a few seconds* “So?”

Cashier: “So that’s £110, please!”

Me: “It should be £55. You’ve charged for two.”

Cashier: “I scanned it twice.”

Me: “I know. You’re charging me for two jackets, but I only have one.”

Cashier: “Oh. OH! Do you want me to get you another jacket?”

Me: “Thank you, but I think you’d better get me a supervisor instead.”

(Unfortunately the supervisor was just as confused as the cashier!)
