Nonplussed Customers

, , , | Right | February 10, 2011

Customer: “Something isn’t right with these two signs about the pears on sale. One says $1.00 for one pound, and the other says $10 for ten pounds. Which is it?”

Me: “Actually, ma’am, that’s the same thing.”

Customer: “Excuse me, but I actually went to college. I think I can do basic math.”

Me: “Let’s look at it this way. If it’s $1 for one pound, how much would three pounds be?”

Customer: “$3.”

Me: “Yep, and how much would five pounds be?”

Customer: “$5.”

Me: “Awesome. How much would ten pounds be?”

Customer: “$10.” *pause* “Those signs are misleading!” *storms off*
