Turns All Sales To Stone

| Working | February 8, 2016

(I work in the fine jewelry section of a large, well-known department store. This conversation happens with a young, laid-back manager.)

Me: “[Manager], come see this.”

Manager: “What?”

Me: “Did you know we have a Medusa pendant in the men’s jewelry?”

Manager: “What, really? Yikes.”

Me: “I know, right? Who the hell designed this, and why do we have it?”

Manager: “I have no idea. You sure this is men’s?”

Me: “Does it make any more sense if it was made for women? But yeah, check the size of the pendant and the thickness of the chain you’d need; it’s men’s. It’s also [several hundred dollars] at full price.”

Manager: “Wow.”

Me: “Because what a guy really needs in his life is Medusa’s severed head hanging from his neck.”

Manager: “…I’ll give you 25 dollars of [Store credit] if you sell this thing.”

Me: “DONE.”

(Hey, guys, what you really need in your life is Medusa’s severed head hanging from your neck, and I would be happy to take care of that for you!)
