It’s The Economy, Stupid

, , , , , | Right | November 14, 2022

Prices all over are skyrocketing, and deli meat is no exception. One of our most popular hams has jumped a few dollars a pound. Because of how quickly it happened, corporate has yet to send us updated tags, so that ham has no price tag.

Customer: “I want one pound of [ham].”

The interaction goes well until he sees the price of the ham as I am ringing it up.

Customer: “Why is it so expensive? It was [lower price]!”

Before I can answer, he grabs the now-tagged ham and gestures at me with it.

Customer: “I am paying for your raise!”

Me: “I’m not getting a raise.”

Customer: “Then why is it so expensive?”

Me: *Shrugging* “I guess because the price of gas to get it here went up?”

The customer had no reply for that and just walked off. After that, I warned everyone who ordered that ham about the price.

Question of the Week

Has a customer ever tried to cross you and lived to regret it? What happened?
