Wish You Could Frame It Differently

, , , , | Right | November 18, 2020

I work at a chain craft store as a framer. 

Customer: “Hi, I’m looking for a frame for a sixteen-by-twenty picture. Can you show me some?”

Me: “Yeah, right here.”

Customer: “Those are too fancy. This is for a boy’s room. Can you show me some that would look good in a boy’s room?”

Me: “Yeah, right here.”

Customer: “Oh, but those have complicated hanging instructions. Can you show me some that would look good in a boy’s room that have simple hangers?”

Me: “Yeah, right here.”

Customer: “Okay, but I have another picture that’s eight by ten that I want to match it. Can you show me some that would look good in a boy’s room that have simple hangers that also come in eight-by-ten?”

Me: “Yeah, right here.”

Customer: “Oh, those aren’t on sale, though. Do you have any that would look good in a boy’s room that have simple hangers that also come in eight by ten that are also on sale?”

Me: “Yeah, right here.”

Customer: “I don’t like those. You guys don’t have a very big selection, do you? Oh, look, these are perfect.”

It’s the ones she didn’t like, in a slightly different color. 

Customer: “Are these on sale?”

Me: “Yes.”

Customer: “Will they ring up as the sale price?”

Me: “Yes.”

Customer: “How much are they on sale for?”

Me: “They’re 50% off, like the sign says.”

Customer: “What will they ring up as?”

Me: “It will be 50% off the amount that is on their price label right there.”

Customer: “You’re sure it’ll ring up at the register as on sale?”

Me: “Yes.”

Customer: “Oh, but what about these over here?”

Me: “Those are the ones you already looked at that are not on sale.”

Customer: “Oh, right.”
