I was at Watson’s the other day buying a whole heap of stuff.
As the cashier was scanning my purchases, she noticed a small tin of grape pastilles among them.
She held it up and said, “This one is $4.95, okay?”
I stared at her quizzically before saying, “Yes, I know.”
Then she continued scanning.
I was puzzled. Why did she have to say that? The price was listed on the shelf.
I said, “Why? Have people complained about the price before?”
She replied, “Ya, got customers buy this sweet and complain it’s too expensive. Then they reject it.”
WTF lah, people. It’s only five freaking bucks. Sure, it’s kind of expensive for a small tin of sweets but you don’t open your eyes and look at price tags, then you make a joke of yourself by announcing to the whole world that you can’t afford five bucks for some sweets.
I’ll bet this person doesn’t blink when shelling out $2,000 for an LV bag.
Maybe if the sweets came in an LV tin, he or she will pay $200 for it. Haha.
UPDATE (9:15 pm):
Seems like people are misunderstanding what I mean!
I’m not complaining about the cashier. I’m commenting on the people who complain about the sweets being too expensive! LOL.
The cashier is fine. She was only doing her job and I had a nice conversation with her about lame Singaporeans who complain too much.
