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.
