So I FINALLY got my Black Thanskgiving/Friday schedule last night. They've got me on from 7pm to 1am on BT (or Brown Thursday as one of my managers jokingly called it, I resisted the urge to tell him Brown Thursday is pretty accurate for all the shit we're gonna have to take), and then 8:30pm to 12:30am on BF.
So at least I have that chunk of daytime to sleep, even though there's no chance of having a decent Thanksgiving dinner.
And then there was this gem of a customer.
At Soul's we have this thing called "Soul's Cares for Kids." It's a book (or series of books) and plush animals/characters from the books. Right now it's Peanuts. They're five dollars each.
All of the money collected from the sales goes to charity. There are NO discounts on these items, because as I said, 100% of the profits go to charity. So this woman comes through last night with 15 of the Charlie Brown plushies. Comes out to about $80. She wants to use her 20% off and $5 off coupons. I explain to her that there are no discounts on the charity items because they're for charity.
"Even if I use my Soul's card?"
Yes, even if you use your Soul's card there is no discount on charity items. Even if you use gold bullion, magic beans, shiny buttons, or two cows and five chickens.
She still bought them all, and stormed out of the store complaining about how she should have gotten a discount because she was using her Soul's card.
Well excuse the fuck out of us for wanting to help kids.
