Thinks You’re The Big Cheese

| Right | February 13, 2017

(I work inside a store, giving out free samples of specific branded products. I don’t actually work FOR the store, I only work inside it to push the products. My shift is over and I am cleaning and packing up when a lady taps me on the shoulder.)

Lady: “Is the price for this $3?”

(She shows me a meat/cheese tray and points to a price tag that says “cheese dip.”)

Me: “No, this price tag is for this product.”

(I point to the cheese dip, and I notice the price tag for the item in her hand is missing.)

Lady: “But this product was underneath that price tag, which means I can have it for $3.”

Me: “No, because they are two completely different items.”

Lady: “But the price says $3!”

Me: “Yes, $3 for cheese dips, not for meat and cheese trays.”

Lady: “I want to speak to your manager right now!”

Me: “I don’t actually work here, but I can try to find someone who does!”

Lady: “You BETTER find me someone who works here, like YOUR MANAGER!”

Me: “I don’t work here!”

(At this point her teenage daughter was in the background saying, “can we just go?” over and over. I waved my arm at a passing employee and quickly gathered my supplies to bolt, but I heard her behind me saying how I refused to help and refused to get my manager!)
