There’s Always A Bigger (Priced) Fish

, , , , | Right | October 5, 2018

(I work in a grooming salon inside a popular pet supply store. It’s about two or three minutes before the store closes, but I’ve just closed the salon and am checking out with a bag of cat food before I head home. At the register next to me, I overhear a conversation.)

Customer: “I recently bought a fish here, but it died, and I would like to buy this fish now for the same price as I got the last one.”

Cashier: *looks at the receipt she shows him* “I’m sorry, ma’am, but the fish you had is not the same as this fish. This species of fish is a little more expensive.”

Customer: “Look. This is the third time I’ve wasted my time and gas coming down here. I want this fish for a dollar.”

Cashier: “Ma’am, this is not the same species of fish. I can’t sell it to you at the same price as another species.”

Customer: “I want to speak to your manager.”

(I had to leave right after that, and I have no idea what the manager did. I was just taken aback that a woman walked in right before closing and demanded a fish for a dollar for absolutely no reason.)
