Go Out Of Business Or Lose Mine!

, , , | Right | September 4, 2018

(I am a manager in a bookstore owned by a chain that has recently filed chapter 11 bankruptcy. The chain is rearranging some management but has decided not to close any stores.)

Customer: “Hi, I was wondering when you’re having your out-of-business sale?”

Me: “We aren’t having one, luckily. The store isn’t closing.”

Customer: *angrily* “That’s not what I heard. When is your sale?”

Me: “I’m afraid there will not be one.”

Customer: “I know you’re closing. You need to tell me when your sale is.”

Me: “Again, I am sorry, sir, but we will not be closing, so there will not be a sale.”

Customer: “So, you won’t give me any discount on this?” *holds up item*

Me: “No, sir, as the store is not closing, I cannot give you a discount, and since you have been quite rude, I will not authorize one.”

Customer: “YOU’VE JUST LOST MY BUSINESS!”

Me: *nods* “All right, then. Have a pleasant day, sir.”
