So earlier today I'm working an 8 hour shift as a cashier at an American upscale supermarket; about 3/4 of the way through my shift a customer comes through my line and would like to purchase some yellow peaches, I place them on the scale, enter the PLU and take off the tare weight.
Customer: "Those peaches are supposed to be $1.99"
Me: "Yes, they're $1.99 per pound."
C: "No, they're supposed to be $1.99 for the bag." (it's an open paper bag that people can place as many or as few peaches in as they please, so no this doesn't make any sense.)
Me: "Well, I'm sorry but they're $1.99/lb."
C: "Well that's false advertising. The label said $1.99."
Me: "I'm certain the label would have said per pound somewhere, but it can be easy to-"
C: "Well basically you're saying that I'm not able to read properly, and that's not appreciated."
Me: ... "Um, okay. Sorry. That'll be $21.49."
After my shift I checked the sign, it said "LOCAL yellow peaches, $1.99 per lb"
So no, you can't read properly.
