The Mark-Up Of The Beast

| Working | December 14, 2012

(I’m making a small purchase at a local convenience store. With my purchases, I am using a $1 off coupon. Before the coupon is applied, my total comes to $6.66.)

Cashier: “That will be $5.66, please.”

Me: “Okay.” *makes payment*

(The cashier prints my receipt and notices the pre-coupon total for the first time.)

Cashier: “Oh, it’s a good thing you used that coupon. It had been $6.66. You would’ve had to have bought something more!”

Me: “No, it’s fine. I’m not superstitious.”

Cashier: “Well, I am. I wouldn’t have allowed that on my machine. I would’ve made you buy something else!”

Me: *speechless*
