Gifted With Foresight Of Her Reaction

| Right | December 24, 2015

(I work in a store that sells things like lotions, body wash, and perfume. Around Christmas, a male customer comes in and asks me for help.)

Customer: “My girlfriend gave me this list of things she wants…”

(He hands me the list and I look it over.)

Me: “Oh, you’re in luck! We just happen to have a gift set that contains two of each of the items on this list, plus a few others, and because it’s on for half price right now, it’ll cost you about the same as it would to just buy these items individually.”

Customer: “Can you show me that?”

(I show him the set, and he looks at it closely.)

Customer: “Hmm… It’s got lip balm in it. I don’t think she’d like that. I’ll just buy the items on the list.”

Me: “Okay. It’s going to cost you about the same, though, for half as much product. Are you okay with that?”

Customer: “Yeah, that’s fine. That’s what she wants.”

Me: “Okay, fair enough.”

(I help him gather up all the items, take him to the till and begin ringing him up. As he watches me scan, he looks back at the gift set.)

Customer: “Wait, what I am doing? I’ll take that set!”

Me: *laughing* “Good idea.”
