Fleabite here and I’m so fucking sick of people. An older couple came in last week and saw something that they wanted for their grandson, but they didn’t buy it. I told them that I can hold it for them, they said "No, we'll be back Sunday." Well I sold the thing yesterday (after Sunday came and went) to someone else. Just now they came back:
Old Fart 1: “Where is <item>? Why did you sell it, you knew we were coming back!”
Me (in my head): Do you have any idea how many people say that they’re coming back, and don’t. (Hint it like 90% if not more).
Me (out loud): "I'm sorry but, you didn't want me to hold it for you so it was still up for sale and I sold it."
Old Fart 2: "We said we were coming back, are you saying that we're liars?"
Me: "No. I simply said it was still up for sale, because you didn't have it held."
Old Fart 1: "It's stupid that we have to give private information for a <less than $10 item>!"
Old Fart 2: "If this is how your going to treat your Good, Paying Customers,(yes I heard the capital letters) we are never coming back!"
Old Fart 1 and 2 go off grumping and bitching.
Me (in my head): You didn't pay to begin with.
