When Women (Men)Swear By It

, , , , , | Right | July 11, 2020

My store has recently had a three-day promotion on womenswear; we have been giving out vouchers that give a customer £10 off if they spend £50 or more on womenswear. The promotion has now ended. A customer comes to my till.

Me: “That’ll be [price], please.”

The customer hands over a £10 voucher.

Me: “Sorry, madam, this offer has finished.”

Customer: “But I want my £10 off!”

Me: “It wouldn’t be valid anyway.”

Customer: “Why not?”

Me: “Well, for a start, your total is less than £50, and you’ve bought menswear.”

Customer: “So?”

Me: “The voucher was for £50 spent on womenswear between [dates].”

Customer: “Where does it say that?”

I point out the details — in big, clear letters — on the voucher.

Customer: “That’s disgraceful! You should make it more obvious!” *Leaves*
