An SC came in yesterday and wanted a clock we had way up on the wall. After checking inventory, we found that we were out of them and they were on back order from the manufacturer and wouldn't be back in stock until the end of August. So, we offered her the one on the wall. She was fine with that and we got out the ladder and took it down. When she looked at it, she saw it was a little dusty on the top.
SC: "If I'm going to buy this clock, you're going to have to make it worth my while. Give me 25% off the sale price."
ME: "Why, is it damaged in some way?"
SC: "No, it's dusty on the top! So I want 25% off the sale price!"
ME: "You want 25% off the sale price because it's dusty on the top?"
SC: "Yes. Make it worth my while to buy this!"
ME: "Hmmm...I can fix that."
So, I got out some Windex and a paper towel and cleaned off the top.
ME: "There. Fixed."
SC: "I can't believe you just DID that! I still want my 25% off!"
ME: "I'm sorry, Ma'am. We don't give out discounts because something is a little dusty. It has to be damaged in some way and then it's only a 10% discount, not 25. There's nothing wrong with this clock and you're welcome to buy it since it's not coming back until the end of August, but I can't discount it. Or, you can wait until August for a new one."
She just stood there looking at me for a few seconds, turned around and left.
Don't you just love those idiots who want to set their own price for stuff?
