Womens Retail Slave here with a special bi-lingual edition of NAT.
My store has recently transitioned into full on fall fashion and while that is another story in itself, it means new items at new prices. All summer fashions are on deep sale, and spring even deeper. Nothing in fall is on special as of yet.
So I am helping along all my crustys some good, some bad and some ugly. When a latina woman comes in shopping and gives me the usual "thanks, but no thanks stop talking to me* nod and glance. Her every response to my greeting is "okay or yes" (in english)
I think nothing of it, I went about my day filling and fixing like a good ol' worker bee. My cashier(who is fluent in spanish) calls me to let me know that the register will not ring this sale item at sale price.
Thinking *stupid register* let's see whats going on, and I notice that the tag has been folded and ripped, and its about $30 cheaper than it should be 1stly, and 2ndly its rang as not on sale which it should have been.
I grabbed our scanner and found out that the tag had been switched!
I went and found every tag, in the very fitting room she was in, and found all the items that she had taken said tags from in the fitting room as well. I went back to the cashier and ripped all the wrong tags off the wrong items, voided the sale, and reticketed the items back correctly.
This is when the NAT crusty switches into full on "no speak english" and doesn't understand whats going on.
To which I replied, "You took the tags off these and put them on these in this fitting room, it doesn't work that way. This is what you have to pay"
She then tells her daughter something in spanish which my cashier tells me was about the same as "busted!"
The funny thing is is that she took the things that were on sale and put the wrong tags on them that weren't on sale. Like a dress that was $55 but at half off would have been $27.50, and put a $39.95 tag on it.
Thats all for now, I'll be back with more stores soon!
