Sale Fail, Part 4

, , , | Right | August 30, 2018

(I am working alone in a chocolate store. I transferred from another store about three months ago. I get a call, and thankfully it isn’t busy.)

Customer: “Hello, I am wondering if you have a sale for your chocolates going on?”

Me: “Well, we always have a sale on something. What are you looking for today, sir?”

Customer: “Buy-three-get-three-free on the showcase.”

Me: “I’m sorry, sir, we just finished that sale.”

Customer: “What?”

Me: “We only had it for the summer; it’s October.”

Customer: “But you always have it during this time!”

Me: “I’m sorry, but the sale is done.”

Customer: “How long have you been here for?”

Me: “Over a year, sir.”

Customer: “See? You haven’t been here long enough!”

Me: “If you want, this Saturday, we’re having a similar sale for one night. Buy two, get one free.”

Customer: “When’s that?”

Me: “Well, it’s [event], and between seven to ten we’re having that sale.”

Customer: “Good. That’s the sale I want. Goodbye.” *hangs up*

(I remembered later that he would need tickets to get that sale, since it was a charity event, and I wasn’t working it.)
