I was going to post about this raving cunt of a crusty I had yesterday, but instead I came home from work last night and immediately started making out with a mister Jack Daniels.
Aaand now we're here.
We had coupons circulating that expired on December 24th. I've had a few people pitch a shitfit over them, but nothing like this cunt.
A woman came up to my cash with her teenage daughter with a clearance pair of shoes (They came to only $11.30 with tax.) I told her the total and then she said "Oh! I have a coupon!"
I knew this was going to be shitty anyways because in order to use ANY of our coupons, you have to spend $25 BEFORE tax.
She pulled out one of the $10 ones that expired on the 24th.
Me: "Sorry, this expired on the 24th."
Woman: "WHAT!? WHERE DOES IT SAY THAT!"
Me: -Points to the expiry date that's right on the front of the coupon- "Right there, ma'am."
Woman: "WELL, THAT'S JUST RIDICULOUS. I HAD SURGERY ON THE 24TH. I WAS IN THE HOSPITAL, SO YOU HAVE TO HONOUR THIS COUPON."
Me: "Sorry, our computers won't even take them anymore. There's nothing I can do. Plus, when they were relevant, you had to spend over $25 to use them."
Woman: "NO, IT DOESN'T SAY THAT ANYWHERE. I'D LIKE TO USE THIS COUPON RIGHT NOW. OTHERWISE I'M CALLING CORPORATE! YOU CAN CALL THE HOSPITAL IF YOU WANT! THEY'LL TELL YOU THAT I WAS IN SURGERY! GO AHEAD! DO IT!"
Woman's Teenage Daughter: "Mom, it's like.. eleven dollars. Those shoes are regularly $85! Just get them."
Me: -Aggravated- "Were you at the hospital in town for your surgery on Christmas Eve?"
Woman: "YES! CALL THEM! THEY'LL TELL YOU!"
Me: "Was in an emergency surgery?"
Woman: "NO! WHY DO YOU CARE! YOU JUST DON'T WANT TO GIVE ME THAT COUPON BECAUSE I WAS IN THE HOSPITAL!"
Me: "Well, ma'am, my boyfriend is an EPO at the hospital (true story), and they didn't have ANY surgeries scheduled for that day, unless it was an emergency (also, true story).
Woman's Teenage Daughter: "Way to go, mom. Let's just go. Honestly."
Woman: "... LOOK, JUST LET ME USE THE COUPON! I WAS IN THE HOSPITAL AND COULDN'T USE IT."
Me: "Plus, those coupons were good from August until December 24th. There was more than enough time. If you want to speak to a manager, I can send you to catalog. But they'll tell you the same thing."
Woman's Teenage Daughter (to me): "I'm really sorry." (To her mom) "Let's just go! This is embarrassing."
Woman: "Fine! -Throws coupon at me and leaves-
Coworker: "... You are literally a magnet for crazy people."
(Note; I said all of that mostly deadpan. I wasn't rude. However, I really don't care anymore. I'm nice to every customer, and 95% of them end up screaming/swearing at me. I'm just done.)
