Default Scam artist tries to pull a scam, gets mad when cashier refuses

My best friend who is a cashier has to deal with price matches all the time, and it is a real pain in the ass. Makes me glad I'm a delivery driver now
A lady and her husband come through his line with steaks that are supposed to be $10 a pound, and she says (other grocery store) has them at $2 a pound. Ok, I don't know very much about this kind of stuff, but I have been around long enough to know that steak is not cheap, and if any grocery store sold the expensive type of steak for so much less than their competitors, they'd go out of business. SA= Scam Artist
C: Do you have the add?
SA: No I don't. (no surprise here)
C: I can't do it.
SA: The other cashiers let me do it (wish I had a nickel every time someone said that)
C: This is steak, and its $8 cheaper. I'm sorry, but I am not doing that.
SA: Fuck this then!
C: May I ask that you don't use that kind of language? Thank you.
SA: Why? For using that word? This is bullshit! You won't give me the price!
Her husband also chimes in and drops an f-bomb too.
Cashier calls manager over, and cashier informs them what they are doing, and that they are using profanity. To the profanity, the lady responds....
SA: Yes I did use foul language! What's your point?! I'll fucking use it again!
M: You're not getting it for this price, and you may not use that kind of language.
SA: This isn't fair! Fuck this, I'm leaving!
And with that, she's gone. God I fucking hate people who think they can use that kind of language and treat us like shit, and then act like little kids when they don't get their way. Manager should've kicked them out.

If SA wants those steaks at $2 per pound, I would suggest she goes to the other store.

"Come! Buy our steaks! Only $2.00 a pound!*

*(when purchased in bulk lots of 50 pounds or more.)"

Its tough to buy ground beef for $2 a pound. Steak $2 a pound does not happen, NOT EVEN ON POST. The cheapest you can usually get is $5 each. And this is an area where we do have frequent meat sales cause it comes in farm fresh from around town.

$2/pound steak would make the stuff on McDonalds' "steak" egg and cheese bagels look good.
Any fool can piss on the floor. It takes a talented SC to shit on the ceiling.

Only time I buy beef that cheap, is once a year when my family buys half a cow.

Yep, 1000 lbs of beef cut any way we like.

Even my roommate, who could eat steak morning, noon, and night, wouldn't even eat $2/lb steak.
Eh, one day I'll have something useful here. Until then, have a cookie or two.
