Meet Satan Claus, Santa’s Maladjusted Brother

, , , | Right | March 30, 2009

(A customer walks in about 30 minutes before we close on Christmas Eve. We are closing early due to the holiday. Every customer that night is buying last-minute gifts.)

Me: “Hello, what can I help you find?”

Customer: “A converter box.”

Me: “Sure, let me show you what we have.”

Customer: “What’s this $40 off crap?”

Me: “If you go to [website], you can get a coupon for $40 off.”

Customer: “Oh, it’s some mail-in rebate scam. Never mind…”

Me: “Okay, shall I ring this up for you?”

Customer: “You seem to be in a bit of a hurry. What’s the rush?”

Me: “It’s Christmas Eve, and we close in 15 minutes. I want to get the store ready to close so I can leave as soon as possible.”

Customer: “You’re closing early for what?”

Me: “Christmas Eve.”

Customer: “Wow, they give you guys time off for anything these days!”

Me: *facepalm*

Manager: *facepalm*

Another Customer: *bursts out laughing*

Customer: “What!? Ugh, fine! I’ll take the box!”
