Should Have Paid Attention In School

, , , , | Right | October 6, 2010

(A customer places shoeboxes on the counter and stares at me.)

Me: “All set, then?”

Customer: “Oh, yes. School.”

Me: *slightly confused* “Uh, yeah! Yeah, I can’t believe school is starting already!”

Customer: *chuckles* “Heh… yeah. School.”

Me: *more puzzled* “Yeah, I know. So soon!”

Customer: “Where’s my 20% off?”

Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am?”

Customer: “Your website said if that if I said the word school in your store I get 20% off my purchase.”

Me: “I don’t think you read correctly, ma’am. We don’t have any sort of sale like that going on.”

Customer: “It says that if I say school I get a discount!”

Me: “I think you were supposed to text school and get a coupon code sent to your phone.”

Customer: “Well, school. Now give me my 20%.”

Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am, I just can’t do that. We’re not running that kind of sale.”

Customer: “Well, you should fix the Internet, then! This is ridiculous!”
