Not Exactly A Golden Ticket

, , , | Right | August 19, 2009

(I work in a photo booth that takes everyone’s picture before they get into an attraction. We give tickets out so we can easily locate a customer’s photo when they come back. A customer hands over her ticket and I hand her the photo to see. She begins walking away with it.)

Me: “Ma’am, excuse me. I’m sorry; we actually sell those here.”

Customer: “Excuse me?”

Me: “Well, you have to purchase them. We don’t just give them away.”

Customer: “But I don’t need to purchase it. I gave you a ticket.”

Me: “Ma’am, that ticket is only so we can find your photo. You need to purchase it if you want to take it home.”

Customer: “But I gave you a ticket.”

Me: “Everyone gives us a ticket. Sorry, ma’am, but you’ll have to buy that if you want it. It’s $5.”

Customer: “This is the biggest scam in the world. I am not paying for my own photograph!”

Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am, but this is a business. If you don’t want to buy it you don’t have to, but we’re not going to give it to you for free.”

Customer: “Can I at least get a discount?”

Me: “Why would we give you a discount?”
