Well, Shucks!

, , , , | Right | December 31, 2020

It is New Year’s Eve and my parents are doing some last-minute shopping. A discount store is having a special on oysters, selling them for roughly half the price of the shop where my parents are. In order to shift stock, they immediately reduce the — fresh — oysters. As my dad loves oysters, he is treating himself to a double portion; however, a lady customer is not having it. 

She creates a fuss and demands fresh oysters — the sticker reducing them in price is the same as they use for last-date products. The employee explains that the oysters arrived that morning, and that they are absolutely fresh but just discounted in order to move them due to the competitor’s low prices.

The lady is having none of it, calling them liars and demanding fresh stock. Exasperated, the employee goes in the back, grabs a pack that hasn’t been stickered yet, and hands it to the lady. She smugly and victoriously goes her way.

My dad enjoyed his oysters.
