They’re Not Cut From The Same Watermelon

, , , , | Working | March 26, 2019

(This happens with almost every new employee in registers. Like most fruit, we sell watermelon by the kilo. The picture on the system is a quarter of a watermelon, and it’s listed as a “watermelon cut.”)

New Employee: *trying to ring through an entire watermelon* “Where are full watermelons on here? I can only find watermelon cuts.”

Me: “Just do watermelon cuts. It’s the same price. They’re sold by the kilo.”

New Employee: “But that doesn’t make any sense. Shouldn’t the full watermelon be more per kilo than the cut? Why would a full watermelon be the same price as cut watermelon?”

Me: *dies inside a little*

(Eventually, they added a full watermelon to the system that had exactly the same price as the cut. We stopped having this problem after that.)
