Convenience: Anything that is intended to save resources (time, energy) or frustration.
One thing I hear a lot at my job is "I can get it cheaper somewhere else."
From milk to gas to candy bars, people constantly inform me that somewhere else in the world has a price that is cheaper than ours is.
And they're right.
Because we are a CONVENIENCE STORE.
We are here for the convenience of the customer. You aren't going to find any sales at our store. There are no blue light specials, or rollback prices or even manager's specials. The only discount you will get is if I happen to ring your stuff up wrong and don't notice what I did.
I'm not sure why people tell me this stuff all the time. What am I going to do about it? Usually when they tell me, I just look at them and say my basic response of "I'm sorry, I don't make the prices here, Sir," when in actuality I want to say "Okay, then get your ass out of here and go spend $10 in gas to get it cheaper somewhere else."
I hear this a lot with gallons of milk. People complain that the grocery store has it cheaper. Of course it does! But you have to spend a half hour in the checkout line to get it cheaper.
My store is here so that you can get in, get out and go home. Please don't stand there and argue prices with me. I don't care if Walmart has a box of crackers for 10 cents cheaper. I don't care if you can get a 20 pack of condoms for the same price we sell 3 packs.
By complaining, these people look cheap to every person that is waiting in line behind them. I know, because customers talk about these people after they leave. But that's fine by me, because I love gossip and drama.
