The Couponator 34: Blast From The Past

, , , , | Right | June 6, 2022

I work as a grocery cashier. A customer tries to hand me a coupon that is FIVE YEARS out of date! To her credit, she isn’t belligerent or rude about it, just confused about why I won’t take it.

Customer: *Politely.* “May I speak to a manager?”

Manager: “Ma’am, we can’t take a coupon that expired five years ago.”

The icing on the cake was when she did seem surprised when the manager wouldn’t give her the coupon back, and she actually got a little upset when he threw it out – on my side of the till, so she couldn’t just reach over and grab it out of his hand.
