Family Discount Applies, Give Or Take A Decade

, , | Right | July 19, 2018

(I’ve been giving a customer prices over the phone on several of our products.)

Customer: “Oh, hey, do you know [Former Employee]? He used to work up there!”

Me: “No, sir, but I’ve only worked here full-time for three years. I’m sure some of the guys remember him, though.”

Customer: “Oh. Well, [Former Employee] is my dad. Do you think I could get a discount since he used to work there?”

Me: “Um… No, sir, but you can sure tell him we said hello!”

(I checked with my manager later, and his dad hadn’t worked for us for 18 to 20 years.)
