Thou Shalt Grant Me A Floor Model

, , , | Right | February 24, 2009

Customer: “Hello, I’d like to buy this TV, but I want a discount.”

Me: “Sir, I’m not authorized to give discounts. ”

Customer: “Ever?”

Me: “Only on floor models.”

Customer: “Then I want the floor model!”

Me: “We’re only authorized to sell the floor model when we’re out of boxed product. Since the TV you want is right there on the shelf brand-new, I don’t have any reason to sell you the floor model. If I did that I’d just have to open another one.”

Customer: “But I want a discount! I’m a missionary!”

Me: “…what?”

Customer: “I’m a missionary! I need this TV for my RV so I want a discount.”

Me: “Let me get a manager for you…”

(Yes, the manager sold him the floor model for 10% off.)
