Change My Mind

Customer: One pound of swordfish.

Me: Here ya go!

Customer: I read the sign wrong. I thought it was $5.99 not $15.99. Can I switch it out for the snapper?

Me: Sure. Here ya go.

Customer: I said snapper.

Me: That’s what I gave you.

Customer: (pointing) Snapper.

Me: That’s flounder. The signs are in front of the fish; that’s snapper behind the flounder.

Customer: I’ll do the flounder.

Me: Here ya go.

Customer: Wait. The flounder is way more expensive. I’ll take the snapper.

Me: Here ya go.

Feeling Old

Customer: Why are the T-bones so cheap?

Me: They’re just the sale item this week.

Customer: What’s wrong with them? Are they old?

Me: No. I just got them in. They’re just on sale.

Customer: No way. I know how you operate. You put old stuff on sale. I’m not falling for that!

(She proceeds to buy a fillet mignon, the sale item from last week)

Math

Customer: Can I get about $7 worth of shrimp.

(I grab a handful and throw it on the scale)

Me: That’s $7.57. Is that good? Or do you want me to take a few out?

Customer: Add four more. (As I add four more) I want it to be under $8.

Me: Um....well that’s $9.12.

Customer: Take out four.

Me: Okay. Here you go!

Customer: WAIT! How much is that?!

Me: It’s back to $7.57

Customer: Add three more.
