From Denominax, Tales From Retail:
This happened about a month ago.
It was around 4:55 - roughly 5 minutes before my break starts. I was planning on taking one more customer, then putting up the closed-till sign - one customer should take about 5 minutes.
So this guy and his wife roll up with a full shopping cart, and they unload their stuff. There were about 30 packages of bacon, which struck me as a little odd, but bacon is great so whatever.
I rang through about 90% of their stuff, all of it in bags on the counter, when the wife walks up, pulls out a competitors flier and says..
"I'd like to price-match these"
oh god... price match what
She wanted to price match every. single. item.
We don't price-match. There are signs that say this everywhere in the store, and this is a large nationwide chain and none of the stores price-match.
I tell her this,
"I'm sorry, but we don't price-match"
Without saying a word, they abandon EVERYTHING.
Conveyor belt full of food, bags full of food, cart blocking the isle full of food. Not a single word, just left...
Who the fuck tries to price match a full cart of items without at least verifying that we price match? It's not like it's hard information to find, there are signs every where.
So, I had to spend half an hour putting away all their (mostly cold!) food
