It Doesn’t Pay To Be Honest

(I am buying two boxes of hair dye. I have a coupon stating ‘Buy 1 Get 1 Free’ up to a $13.99 value. The cashier rings them both up, then takes off $13.99 even though the hair dye was on sale at $11.50.)

Me: “I don’t think that’s right. The hair dye is only $11.50.”

Cashier: “The coupon is Buy 1 Get 1 FREE. Not Buy 1 Get 1 Half Off.”

Me: “I know that. The hair dye is only $11.50, so I shouldn’t get the whole $13.99 off.”

Cashier: “I don’t know what to tell you. This is how coupons work. You get money off the price. If you don’t want money off the price, don’t use a coupon.”

Me: “You’re just giving me an extra $2.50.”

Cashier: “Learn to read the coupons and stop trying to get things for free!”
