Mowing You Down With The Letter Of The Law

, , , | Right | October 18, 2022

I sold lawnmowers at [Department Store Chain].

Customer: “Do you have any [Lawnmower]s from the ad in stock?”

Me: “I’m sorry, but we’re sold out. We can order one if you want.”

Customer: “You know, there’s a law that you have to have five of an item in stock at all times if it’s in the ad.”

Me: “Okay, we do have five in stock.”

Customer: “Good, I’ll take one.”

Me: “Okay. We’ll order it and deliver it on Wednesday.”

Customer: “But you just said you have five in stock!”

Me: “Yeah, but there’s a law that says I have to have five in stock at all times; if I sold you one of those, I’d be violating the law, so we have to ship you one.”

He was not happy.
