This Deal Is A Steal

, , , , | Right | February 18, 2011

(I’m assisting a tourist that is looking for a t-shirt to take home with pictures of Iceland on them.)

Me: “Well, we don’t sell those t-shirts but there are quite a few of them downtown and I know of one that has a three-for-two special offer on t-shirts.”

Customer: “Could you also explain to me what a three-for-two offer is?”

Me: “Sure, it means that you get three t-shirts for the price of two.”

Customer: “I don’t understand, so we steal the third one? Isn’t shoplifting illegal here like in the States?”

Me: “Yes, shoplifting is illegal here, but you wouldn’t be stealing the third shirt. It just means that you choose three t-shirts and pay for two and then get the third as a free gift, sort of.”

Customer: “I don’t get it.”

Me: “You choose three t-shirts, and as the salesperson scans them into the register you get a 100% discount on the third t-shirt. Therefore, you’ll get it for free with the other two.”

Customer: “I’ll go down there, but if they arrest me for shoplifting, I’m telling the police that you told me to!”
