Sale Fail, Part 12

, , , , , | Right | November 21, 2022

A customer approaches me at the customer service desk, holding an item up.

Customer: “You’re selling this for $49.99, but on the weekend it was $29.99.”

Me: “Yes, it was on sale last week. That sale ended on Monday.”

Customer: “I didn’t feel like buying it then, but I want it now.”

Me: “I’m afraid that sale is over, so you’ll have to pay the retail price.”

Customer: “But I missed the sale. Just give me the sale price.”

Me: “I’m afraid prices are decided by corporate. I can’t lower the price.”

Customer: “Then get me a manager.” 

Me: “I am the manager, ma’am. I cannot lower that price for you.”

Customer: “So, I missed the sale and somehow that’s my fault?”

Me: “Well… yes?”

Customer: “…”

Me: “…”

Customer: “S***.”

She slowly walked to the exit, processing being told no for the first time in her life.
