OMG! I wanted to punch someone last night. I seem to be attracting the crazy abusive assholes this week.... Someone care to take a turn and grab a couple of them off my hands??
So I work at the Canadian Coffee Chain. Our extra large coffee is priced at $2. Now the rest of the prices are as follows (Remember these, it's important) Large: $1.80, medium: $1.60, small: $1.40, extra small: $1.30.
Had a guy order 2 XL and a medium. Since we aren't a full food fast food place, we get a tax break for anything below $4 in purchases. After that $4, you get slapped with the rest of the tax. So I have this guy (he's a regular!!) who came in last night get 2 extra large and a medium coffee. So you'd expect 2+2+1.60=$5.60. And normally if there was no extra tax (my original prices do include tax FYI) but since the end price is over $4 you get the rest of the 13% tax we charge here in Ontario.
Now he gets angry. "Isn't the extra large $2, and the medium $1.60?!?!?!"
Me: "Yup, but once you go over a certain dollar amount in purchases, you pay more tax."
Him: "Well I'm not paying nearly $2 for a medium coffee this is bullshit!"
me: (thinking) "You ordered this last fucking night douche-nozzle. You didn't say anything then... If you wanted to pay base prices without the extra tax you could ask me to separate the orders...." (out loud) "I'm sorry sir, this is what the register has calculated and I can't do anything about it. It's not in my power"
Him: "Whatever here's my money, give me my coffee!!"
*hands me a fuck ton of change*
Well I made the mistake of thinking since he's a regular I could trust his count for his change... Nope two full fucking dollars short!! I was ready to kill!
WTF people!? It's not my fault our tax system for my store sucks shit since our average purchases are less than $2... Don't like the prices? Make your fucking coffee at home damn it!
