Leaving A Paper-Fail, Part 2

, , , , | Right | October 17, 2020

I work in a secondhand store. A customer comes to my till to cash out with two packages of lined paper.

Customer: “I think I should get a discount on this paper since it’s past its expiration date.”

I’m very confused, since I have never seen an expiration date on paper before, and I start looking for a date on the paper. After a couple of seconds, I realize what she’s talking about.

Me: “Ma’am, that’s not the expiration date of the paper; it’s the expiration date of the coupon. Paper doesn’t have an expiration date.”

Customer: “Well, I can’t use the coupon that comes with it so I should get a discount.”

Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am, but it’s already at its lowest possible price.”

It’s $0.99.

Customer: “Fine, but I don’t think that’s fair!”
