Thank god I'm off for the next two days.
I had this regular customer come in today and hand me two Marlboro coupons, but wanted to buy Camel cigarettes with them.
I hate when people assume we'll take coupons for different products. We do this sometimes, but not all the time because then we get yelled at by the cigarette companies.
So I told him that we don't do that with coupons but that I'd take them just this one time.
So I go to ring up his $1 off coupon, and look at the expiration date. They expired in July.
By this time I've got a line of people behind him.
"I'm not taking these, they're expired," I say as I hand them back to him.
What does he do then? He pulls out a magnifying glass from his pocket to look at the expiration dates. "It's only $1. You can take these."
"No, I can't." I wasn't getting stuck paying for this guy's coupons.
So he threw 75 cents on the counter for his newspaper, and walked away, not wanting the cigarettes I guess.
I bet you can guess what I wanted to do with that magnifying glass of his.
