Apparently not according to one of the dumbest human beings I have ever encountered. She asked how much one of our laptops was and I told her it was $400, and she replies "Oh...you guys raised the price on me. It used to be $399.95". And I'm 100% certain it was a dead serious statement. I also caught her picking her nose and then picking up water bottles around the store and then putting them back. Disgusting.

I don't give a fuck if she buys it or not


But she did end up buying it and then yesterday tried to return it, but it was loaded with viruses and we were all like "lol no" and she got furious.

Assuming 6% sales tax then yes 399.95 does in fact = 400
I know now what I knew then, but I didn't know then what I know now

No, it's $423.94

Damn TS 399,95 = 399,95 and 400,00 = 400,00 and not any other combination of the formers.

It's like basic math, that you have probably failed at school and that's why now you're a salesman at a cheap computers store.

Well, it wasn't at work or school, but having a conversation with my super religious family I learned that they don't believe in dinosaurs and think the fossils were put by the government and scientists to try and take down religion and undermine God. I don't even know how I'm so different from my family

How sad their life must be without dinosaurs.

Also, how do they explain Jurassic Park and Littlefoot?

This happened at work

Lady comes in with kids order hamburger kids meal

I mess up get her quesadilla kids meal, my bad

I take her the food and say "sorry, I messed up the order, please have this free of charge while we get what you actually ordered". She looks at the food and says "this isn't what I ordered!" I say "yes ma'am, I made a mistake. please enjoy this while the hamburger cooks". I go back behind the counter and she brings it to me saying "I didn't order this!" . I cannot understand what is happening. I tell her, I know! The hamburger is on its way! I messed up! I have to be like this for a while and then she just sits down.

I bring her the hamburger.

I always round off numbers like you did. What difference does five cents make? Apparently a lot to some people...

A while back at the store I used to work at a lady came in looking to buy a lanyard for God knows what. We didn't have any in the store and when she came up to ask I told her that I was 99% certain that we don't have any. So she got upset and asked why we don't. I told her that I have no control over what we sell so I couldn't tell her.

She then asks me if I know any other stores that might have one. I told her to try the CVS across the street or to go to Walmart or Target. She said she had been to all three and couldn't find any. She started to get more upset and asked if there was anywhere else because I had to know. I told her I had no idea where you could buy one.

She was furious that I somehow didn't know and told me I was useless and asked me how I could be so stupid as to not know. So I just told her back that she couldn't find them either so she must be just as stupid.


My manager was pretty pissed at me but I honestly didn't mean to say it back. It was one of those sarcastic comments that comes out of your mouth before you know how to stop it. Luckily I didn't get fired or anything, I was just told to try to watch my mouth better in the future.

You guys miss the point.

Work backward from this one.

Why are things 399,95 instead of 400?

To give the sense of something being cheaper, than it actually is.

This is a woman who either trolls or legitimately feels it has become more expensive.

I would almost call it very good anti-marketing

This is why I could never work in a shop, I'd be fired on the first day.

To be fair, 400 is objectively 0.05 more than 399.95

Tbf, it would normally be 399.99 rather than 399.95.

399.99 is 400. literally.

Guys, I feel it is important to note that the price didn't actually increase. I just rounded the 5 cents because "three hundred-ninety-nine ninety-five" is 9 syllables whilst "four hundred" is only 3. I figure that cutting my work by 66.66666666% is more important to me than those five cents were to her.

^ do you also think that they priced the thing at 399,95 to laugh at the salesmen when they would have had to say "three hundred-ninety-nine ninety-five" instead of "four hundred"?
