So we have this thing at work where if you don't ask for someone's rewards
card they get a free 20oz soda. There are signs posted at the registers saying this and in the fine print says we have till the end of the transaction to ask.

So this customer GIVES ME HER REWARDS CARD. No, I did not ask for it. BECAUSE SHE GAVE IT TO ME. You have till the end of the transaction to ask for it so what I usually do is make convo while I ring and then ask for it while making conversation.

She sees the sign and she's like "So do I get a free soda because you didn't ask me?" I wasn't done ringing her items yet.

And I'm like "......" for a minute just kinda speechless not knowing what to say.

Finally I told her she handed it to me so I didn't need to ask for it. And she's like "But you still didn't ask." The f**k would I ask you for if you handed it to me? "Oh hey do you have a Rewards card even though you just handed me one?" ????

So I told her I would have to call my manager and he was really busy so it might be a few minutes. Not a lie because he really was super busy with other things. She said never mind and went on her way.

I can't even....Like why would I ask you for your rewards card when you handed it to me???

Sounds like something a lot of people would do. There is no need for someone to ask for a rewards card if you hand it to them first. You need to change the sign to say "If we fail to ask or scan your rewards card."

Some people are just trying to get things for free. She shouldn't have handed it to you, that was her fault. She knew the manager wouldn't give her the soda, so she just let it go.

Wasn't there a Seinfeld episode where Kramer wanted the $100 from the bank because the teller greeted him with 'Hi' and not "hello' like the sign stated they would? This reminds me of that.

So just ask every single customer for their reward card before you start ringing them up (regardless if they hand it to you or not) and the store can keep all the sodas, problem solved
I agree, the DUMB does hurt

Yes! Great episode.

I love that show.

Remember George and the tip jar?
Or Jerry losing the dry cleaners ticket?

The show is so great. And when you watch it now vs. live when it aired it is just so much better now. Little things you missed back then but catch now. One of the best.
