First some background, I work at a high end shoe store as a sales assistant in my city centre and shoes usually cost between £100 to £250 so you can be sure we get some pretty high spenders that aren't too bothered about the cost.
So this is more of a regular occurence and I am just using this particular time that it happened as it is the most recent.
As I am sure most retail workers have heard customers say this at least a couple of times a month it should be pretty relatable. So firstly I am serving this middle aged couple expensive brand shoes and finally arrive at the cash register and conversation goes as follows; I shall be known as M (me) and the customer shall be known as C
M "Okay so I will just scan this through for you"
No price tag on the pair of shoes
M "Uhm ... One second sir, there doesn't appear to be a price tag on the shoes"
Cue dad joke
C "Oh that means they're are free right?"
with best retail smile and light laugh as if I have never heard this joke before when in reality its the billionth time I've heard it (Give or take)
M "Yep! Must be"
The woman from the couple just looked at me with the most cringiest face as if she was thinking, Oh god he's doing it again, I am so sorry.
I know its not the best story but its a regular thing for me which can be quite annoying after the first few times of hearing it
