We Want Your Dough, Not Your Cheese

The CanUsa games are in my city, which results in many American visitors. A man comes into our dollar store with his three children and they all get drinks and chocolate bars.

Me: “Your total is $5.10.”

Customer: “Visa.”

Me: “I’m sorry, sir, but we do not accept Visa, just cash or debit.”

The customer says nothing; he just opens his wallet and shows me his American money.

Me: “We can accept American bills.”

He pulls out six American ones and hands them to me and then stops, pulls one of the bills out, and pulls out a Philadelphia cream cheese packet.

Customer: “Can I pay you with this?”

Me: “I’m sorry?”

Customer: “Instead of the ten cents, can I pay you with this? It’s worth ten cents. I really don’t want the change.”

Me: “No, I’m sorry. I can only accept currency.”

Customer: “D***. You Canadians sure are hard bargainers!”
