Pursing Over The Purse

| Right | January 31, 2016

(I work at a very well known shoe store in England. We happen to sell handbags and purses also, which are incredibly popular as gifts during the sale season. We only have two sale purses left.)

Customer: “This purse is exactly what I need, but there’s a huge scratch on it here, see? I want a new one! I’m paying lots of money for this; I deserve to have it in good condition!”

(I take the purse out of their hands. The scratch isn’t that big. If a customer is nice I do my best to find a new one, but he’s been particularly rude and huffing over our prices and the state of this “scratch”. What I actually do is take it to our cleaning supplies out back and moisturise the “scratch” out.)

Me: “Here you are, sir. I managed to find a new one for you!”

Customer: “That’s much better. Why don’t you just have new ones out on display? You shouldn’t sell defective merchandise!”

(He paid quite happily and left. All over a £10 purse. I had a giggle out back after that.)
