Another Typical Day, Unfortunately.


As told to me Friday morning by Kevin, my assistant manager:

Customer (Picking up a flier): Oh, wow! You're having a Labor Day Weekend Sale?

Kevin: Yeah, you should come through this weekend.

Customer: Aw, man. I can't. I'm going to be out of town.

Kevin: That's too bad. Well, pass the flier on to a friend.

Customer: Yeah, sure. (Long pause)

Customer: You think I can get the discounts today since I'll be out of town this weekend?

Kevin: (Long pause)

Kevin: Sorry, man. It's a LABOR DAY WEEKEND SALE.

Customer: Oh. So, no sales tonight?

Kevin: No. It's Thursday.
