Your Prices Are Tequilling Me

, , , , | Right | June 30, 2019

(I work part-time at a small wine shop that also sells a selection of spirits. We get all sorts of customers, from those who just want a cheap bottle to go with dinner to those who want to get a bit spendier.)

Customer: “Hi. I’m looking for tequila, I think…”

Me: “Okay, well, here’s our tequila wall right over here. We have a great selection.”

Customer: *spots a bottle on a high shelf* “What’s the price on that?”

Me: “$140.”

Customer: “I’ve seen it elsewhere in the city for half that.”

Me: *not sure what her point is* “Okay.”

Customer: “I’ll give you $100 for it.”

Me: *laughs unsure if she’s kidding* “Um… yeah, we don’t… haggle here. The price is set by my boss.”

Customer: “Okay.”

(She left without buying anything.)
