They Will Coupon And On And On…

, , , | Right | June 29, 2018

(We are having a sale in which almost everything in the store is 50% off. With the sale, our registers are not accepting coupons of any kind. We have already explained the situation dozens of times today, but many customers have become irate because they can’t use their coupons. The manager has gotten tired of explaining.)

Manager: “Okay, I have some signs to display to let people know that we can’t accept coupons.”

(The manager puts signs everywhere, including on the counter right behind the register. A customer approaches the register.)

Customer #1: “So, I have this coupon; can I use it?”

Me: “No, with the sale we have right now, we are unable to accept any coupons.”

(She pays and leaves.)

Me: “Hey, [Manager], your signs aren’t working.”

Manager: *taping a sign right on the register at customers’ eye level* “Now there’s no way they’ll miss it!”

(Immediately, another customer approaches.)

Customer #2: “So, can I use this coupon?”

Me: *screams internally*
