Not Quite A Family Business

, , , , | Right | October 1, 2009

(The shop I work in gives their staff a 15% discount using a discount card. Staff are allowed to lend that card to family members. On this particular day, I have left my name-tag at home.)

Me: “That will be $79.00, sir.”

Customer: “Oh, I get a discount. I just haven’t got the card at the moment.”

Me: “Okay, who do you know that works here?”

Customer: “Miss [My Name].”

Me: “How do you know her?”

Customer: “She’s my daughter!”

Me: “Dad, last time I saw you, you had a beard and glasses!”

Customer: “Excuse me?”

Me: “Sir, I’m Miss [My Name].”

Customer: “Oh, haha, very funny. You’ve had your fun. Now give me my discount.”

Me: “I’m afraid I can’t.”

Customer: “You lying b****! You’re not Miss [My Name]! I can’t believe my own daughter won’t give me a discount!”

(The customer leaves in a huff. The next customer is an older woman and is laughing.)

Next Customer: “So, can I be your grandmother?”
