A story too funny not to share!

I know this is long, but it want a good laugh, read on! :)

OK, So I just came back from getting a couple of things at Zellers and I was astonished at the cash register. I actually feel it possible that the girl that was working was that stupid?

Tooth paste was one of the items on my list. Crest Total Health toothpaste to be exact. The price of it on the shelf was $3.99, but I had a coupon for it which actually would make it free. When I gave her the coupon it, she was looking over her screen to see how much it was so she could take that amount off for the value of the coupon. Simple, eh? Oh no...not that simple! lol :)

So, she's looking for the toothpaste price and sees that it rang up as 'O.B. Dual Action...' which I'm assuming is the brand Oral B. It must have originally been packaged with an electric toothbrush combo that likely included the toothpaste with it and somehow my toothpaste got separated and still had that sku attached to it. Make sense?

She says, "Oh, it's $27.99."

To that I reply, "No, it's $3.99, the sku is wrong."

So, she says, "I'll have to call health & Beauty to make sure it's not $27.99."

In turn I reply, "Are you serious, you think the tube of toothpaste is $27.99."

She says, "Well, that's what it says, I'll have to ask them to make sure."

Just then the front-end supervisor, a nice guy in his late 20's walks over to us. She tells him how much the toothpaste is ringing up as and that they won't call her back from health & beauty and she doesn't know what to do 'cause I'm making a fuss 'cause I don't want to pay $27.99 for my tube of Crest toothpaste!

At this point, I'm just grinning at him and he simple looks at her and says, "Please put it in for $3.99", he lets out a sigh, looks at me and rolls his eyes, says sorry and walks away! While I try to contain my laughter...

Apparently, this girl doesn't buy the toothpaste in her house! I don't think she better go on the Price Is Right show any time soon, either! lol :)

Anyway, I hope you got half the laugh out that story as I've had tonight thinking about this girl! :)

Thanks for stoppin' by! :)
