Seriously?



You can't make this stuff up. Here's a conversation I had today with a patron.

Patron: Are you Pat?

Me: No, I'm Pam. Can I help you with something?

Patron: I was in here the other day and I bought one of the music cassette you had for sale. It was the worse 10 cents I ever spent. I put it back in the box. I'd like my dime back. The woman upstairs said I need to speak to Pat.

Me: ....... Well, I'm not sure where Pat is, but I can give you a dime. (hand him a dime)

Patron: Thank you. (he leaves)

Me: Am I on Candid Camera?

Now I've heard it all!

He must have REALLY needed that dime. Did you take the dime out of the drawer or your pocket? If it was your pocket make sure you put in a request to reimbursed.

ha ha - "the worst ten cents I ever spent" - wow, that's saying something, huh?

That is so funny. Truth is stranger than fiction more often than not.

I wonder how much he spent in gasoline to come back to the store and get his 10 cents.

Maybe HE was the one on camera - getting dared to go ask for a refund. It sounds like something my brother would dare me to do.

This is one of the many ways in which you are smarter than me. You just handed over a dime and were done with it. I would probably have argued with the guy because of the principle of it. I really need to just let things go sometimes... ;-)

I think I may have been a smart ass, and said all I have are quarters... and made him make change!

what was the cassette? wait.. he bought a cassette?

Did this happen in 1985?

You have got to be kidding, that's classic.
