A Price For The Devil To Pay

| RI, USA | Crazy Requests, Religion

Customer: “Excuse me, miss; could you help me?”

Me: “Sure, what do you need?”

Customer: “Could you change the price on this syrup? The unit price is $6.66, and I don’t want to buy the devil’s syrup.”

Me: “I don’t think we can change the price at the store level. And I’m not sure that’s a valid reason to change a price.”

Customer: “It doesn’t have to be much. Even just a penny would be fine. Could you ask your manager?”

Me: “Ma’am, I really don’t think we can change the price on a national brand item. We have other kinds of syrup that are just as good if the unit price of that brand bothers you.”

Customer: “No! I want that brand! I only eat that brand! And I want you to lower the price of that brand!”

Me: “Ma’am, I’m afraid I can’t do that.”

Customer: “I’m never shopping at this devilish place again! Everyone who works here is going to go straight to Hell for associating with the devil!”

Me: “Have a nice day, ma’am.”

(The screen on the pad has two buttons: one reading ‘yes’ and one reading ‘no.’ The customer leans down with his mouth close to the pad and shouts…)

Customer: “YES!”
