Cujo's recent story sparked a memory from about a month ago. I really think custy's
have selective reading. They only read what they want to read.
We have a sign stating our price for bulk candy. I admit it is steep to pay 6.48 for a half pound, but it is still posted.
Do you actually think anyone reads it?
Hell to the no! Most guests when we weigh their candy will pay for it because it was their mistake, not ours and be on their merry way.
Then of course you get THE PSYCHO HOSEBEAST! (PH for short)
PH had 3 full to the brim bags of candy. And it was little stuff too like beans and sour strips. So I know it is at least going to be 6 pounds. FML. I already know this is going to be bad.
Me: That is going to be *somewhere between 85 and 100 dollars.
PH: For three bags of candy?
Me: Yes Ma'am, it is 6.48 a half a pound. Yours weighed slighty over six pounds.
PH: Give me the employee discount!
Me: Are you a team member?
PH: Yes, now give me my discount!
Me: Please provide your company ID.
PH: I don't have it!
Me: Then I can't help you.
PH: GIVE ME MY DISCOUNT!
Me: Not unless you provide ID.
At this point, I was done. I go out of my way to help people who are nice to me, but this is ridiculous. I can usually do a 10 or 20 percent discount no problem for annual passes and I rarely do it for people who don't have them (if they are short in change for example) but for an employee discount, you must provide proof of employment and you have to sign a paper.
PH: Let me talk to your manager! (This was another reason I knew she wasn't an employee, otherwise she would know we don't call our managers that).
Me: Fine. *calls manager and tells her what is going on away from screaming custy.
This manager just got promoted to manager and is just awesome. She fights for us daily which I love and every loves her to death. She is like my third mom. We will call her Z.
Z: Ma'am she told you that she can't give you the discount without proof of employment, either provide it or get out.
PH: YOU SHOULDN'T CHARGE SO MUCH FOR SOME STUPID FUCKING CANDY YOU CAN GET ANYWHERE! IT IS ROBBERY IT IS SIN BLAH BLHA ARRGGGH EAT YOUR FACE ARRRGGGGHHHH I AM GODZILLA! RAAWWWRRRRRR!
Z: I am calling *security*. (I love it when she themes like that!)
PH: I AM HIGH UP IN THE COMPANY I KNOW THE PRESIDENT RAWR RAWR RAWR RAWR I GET 50 PERCENT OFF (not even the President of the company gets that high of one).
Well she continues ranting and *security* comes to escort her off the premises. Yay score for the slaves!
I did have to damage almost 100 dollars worth of candy. Boy was I was pissed off.
So yes, signs are everywhere yet no one reads them. FML indeed.
Until next time slaves,
