Half-A-Brains Don’t Have A Heart

, , , | Right | June 29, 2012

(I work at a charity shop. We often get customers trying to get items for less through a variety of methods, such as finding problems with items or comparing our prices to other stores.)

Customer #1: “Oi!”

(I look around and see three men by the men’s shoes.)

Me: “Can I help you?”

Customer #2: “These shoes are a size eight and they’re marked as a size ten!”

Me: “Sorry about that. I’ll retag them.”

(The three customers look at each other and give a nasty laugh.)

Customer #1: “So, since you messed up, can I have these shoes for half price?”

Me: “Sorry, sir, but I can’t change the prices.”

Customer #1: “Well, I can!”

(The three customers give a nasty laugh again. I decide to leave them. They then walk over to my coworker at the till.)

Customer #3: “Oi, love, we’re having these shoes for half price.”

Coworker: “I’m very sorry, but I don’t have the authority to change the prices.”

Customer #1: “Go on, just cut the price.”

Coworker: “I can’t do that. And, besides, all the money goes to charity.”

Customer #1: “Screw charity! I want these shoes for half price!”
