A Conversation I’ve Had With The Guy At The Convenience Store Two Times Every Single Week For The Past Three Years

Me (putting items down on the counter): Hello.
Clerk: Do you have one of our super discount cards?
Me: I don’t, but that’s OK.
Clerk: You get one free drink every time you buy seven.
Me: No, but thank you.
Clerk: Are you sure?
Me: Yes, thank you.
Clerk: You’ll save 10 cents on every gallon of gas!
Me: I’d have to buy a car first.
Clerk: Ah.

Repeat forever.

  1. That comes out to about 212 times now you’ve told that damn clerk the same thing! The next time you go, tell him you’re only interested in the card IF you can get discounts on the things you regularly buy, and point to whichever item you like on the counter.

    It probably won’t work. If it does, you’ll be asked for your phone number, zip code and more every time you go in thereafter. Most likely they’re pushing the card for non-profitable stuff to make you feel like you’re “getting a deal”. Everything nowadays is basically just one gimmick of one kind or another!
