So this was a fun one that I've been wanting to share for a little while.
So at my store, after July 4th all summer related items go 50% off so we can sell them all and have room for the fall stock and back to school items, and they will drop further every two weeks. One thing that was included in that sale are these solar powered metal sculptures that do little things. Enter "Sweaty Anger Man", we'll call him Sam.
Me: Scanning everything and engaging in small talk with the man's wife
Sam: Why are those 39.99?
Me: Oh, I haven't gotten your shoppers card yet. The summer sale isn't applicable without it.
Sam: Give him the card.
Wife: Kinda annoyed, hands me the card
Me: See? There they are, 24.99.
Sam: They're supposed to be 12.50. The starting price is 24.99.
Me: Sorry sir but the retail price is 39.99, the sale has been going on for 2 weeks now so they are 75% off.
Sam: No, the tag says 24.99 and, the paper said all items are 50% off.
Me: The tag is showing you the sale price, the blue portion above it should read thir-
Sam: CAN SOMEBODY CHECK THE FUCKING TAG OR GET ME A MANAGER. THIS IS ROBBERY.
Right in front of an innocent little family of 3. Annoyed, I turn my register light off and gesture for the man to follow me to get him away from the kids. I tell the lady I will be back shortly.
Me, now by the tags: See? right here. Everything I explained.
Sam: GET ME A MANAGER THIS IS RIDICULOUS.
After some paging, manager makes me look stupid and tells me it's becoming too much of a hassle and to just override the price to 12.50 each. Just to spite the guy I scanned a donation without him seeing before the order completed. Served him right I think.
