Many decades ago I was working in a department store (now closed). One day I helped the manager of the electronics department clear the dead weight – products that were outdated, single units in stock, messed up packaging, or just simply hadn’t moved in years – out of his storage room so they could fill it up with more, recent stock.

This stuff couldn’t be returned back to the warehouses, and was not moving at all. Many of them came up marked 50-75% off. The department manager and I spent the afternoon marking them down, then piling them on a big 6’x3′ table very near one of the entrances. He puts a big sign on them that says “All items 50% Off.”

This was around 4pm.

At 6pm, as his his shift was about to end, he replaces the sign with a sign that says “50% Off The Marked Price,” says “oops!” and clocks out.

The table cleared within the hour.

I work at a local hotel here in oklahoma city as a front desk agent in the mornings. I had an experience with a guest that went as follows:

Guest: Yes, I need a receipt to turn into my work for compensation.

Me: Okay, Sir, if you can just tell me your room number, please.

Guest: *says room number*

Me: Sir, I see you stayed free last nights on your reward points. I cannot give you a receipt since you didn’t pay anything for your room.

Guest: Why not? I need to get compensated for my stay!

Me: Sir, you used points to stay last night. It was a free stay.

Guest: Yes, but my company needs to compensate me for the money I spent here.

Me: ….Sir, I cannot give you a receipt because it was a free stay. However, I have you checked out.

Guest: Okay…. well have a good day then…

Me: Thank you, Sir, you too.

(I work in a retail store, and when certain items go on sale we place hang tags on the item saying Buy One Get On 50% Off, etc. I was hang tagging items when a costumer went up to my manager at the counter.)

Manager: (rings up her two items and tells her the price)

Customer: Oh wait, I’ve got a coupon.

Customer: (precedes to hand my manager one of the hang tags that says Buy One Get One 50% Off)

Manager: I’m sorry mam, but that is not a coupon.

Costumer: What do you mean it isn’t a coupon? I got it in the mail yesterday.

Manager: I doubt that, seeming as this is one of our hang tags that [My name] is currently marking items with.

Costumer: No, I specifically got this in the mail. I want to speak to the manager.

Manager: M’am, I am the manager on duty and I can confirm that this is not a coupon.

Costumer: Oh, I see. (goes on and pays like nothing happened)

No Such Thing As A Free Movie

, , , , | Right | February 5, 2018

(I am scanning in some returned movies when a mom and her young son approach with movies to rent. I pull up her account and notice there are about $7 worth of late fees.)

Me: “All right, ma’am, there is a balance on your account. Would you like to take care of all of it today?”

(I think she will, considering she is wearing designer clothes.)

Mother: “What movies were they for?”

(I look them up and tell her that the kids’ movies were all about 13 days late, meaning about $3 for each movie was added as a late fee.)

Mother: “But those were free kids’ movies!”

Me: “Well, yes, it’s free to rent them, but it’s sort of like the library. If they’re late, there’s a charge.”

Mother: *yelling* “NO, THEY WERE FREE. TAKE THAT OFF!”

Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am. They were extremely late, so I cannot take the charges off.”

Mother: “Fine! We’re leaving and never coming back!”

Me: *as she’s leaving* “Okay, bye!”

Maybe They Were Too Baked To Notice

(A customer comes back with pizza he ordered earlier. This is a take-and-bake pizzeria, which, of course, means they take it home and bake it in their oven.)

Customer: “I want to know who cooked this pizza. It’s cold and nasty!”

Manager: “Um… We don’t cook the pizzas here.”

Customer: “Well, whoever cooked it, it’s cold, and it’s disgusting.”

Manager: “Sir, we don’t cook the pizzas; this is a take-and-bake.”

Customer: “Well, whoever cooked it, it was terrible.”
