This Is Why We’re In A Recession, Part 20

Scotland, UK

(A customer comes to the counter with a cauliflower, and a bag of potatoes.)

Me: “Okay, that’s £3.36.”

Customer: “What? How much is the cauliflower?”

Me: “It’s £1.36.”

Customer: “£1.36? That’s ridiculous! That’s about twice the price of [local supermarket]. I can’t afford to pay that much on my pension!”

Me: “Would you like me to take it off?”

Customer: “Yes please. I can’t possibly afford it. Oh, and can you give me two £5 scratch-cards please?”
