Talking Until They’re Blu In The Face

| Working | November 25, 2012

(I’m at the counter of my local DVD store purchasing a DVD when the following happens.)

Cashier: “Did you know for an extra £3 you can buy this film on Blu-ray?”

Me: “Yes, thank you, but I don’t have a Blu-ray player.”

Cashier: “But for an extra £3 you get a better quality picture, an extra disk of features, and it’s in 3D!”

Me: “I’m honestly okay. I don’t have a Blu-ray player.”

Cashier: “It’s only an extra £3! You could buy the Blu-ray and play it on a [console] if you don’t have a Blu-ray player!”

Me: “Look, I know you have to try to upsell as I work for your branch in [town], but I really don’t have a Blu-ray player or a [console], so a Blu-ray copy would be no good to me!”

Cashier: “FINE! Take your stupid DVD, then!” *slams purchase into a bag*
