“Pay as you exit…Sweet deal!” –Jay, Clerks the animated series.
People who ask for specials and discounts all the time can get to me occasionally. They tend to come off entitled when asking, and if they buy something their demeanor suggests that they’ve done me a personal favor. Everyone who buys something in the store has done me a favor, they’re paying for my job. You doing it is nothing special. You’re supporting your local community. I go out of my way to serve everyone just the same, to the best of my abilities. Every customer is special, which a nice way to say that no customer is special. We want your money and that’s it.
