What does ‘Big Sale’ even mean?
Note: Any names in this have been changed for the purpose of this post.
I was working in Pfresh today when the STL, who was doing a walkthrough, came by. She made a comment about avocados being on sale next week. I wasn’t surprised; most stores put things like avocados on sale during the first week of May. I was in the middle of a count (for QMOS), so I didn’t respond.
Not long after, the STL came by again and mentioned this ‘big’ sale on avocados. So, I asked what the sale was.
Maybe I’m the only one who hears “Something is on sale” and immediately wants to know a price.
Well, when I tried to clarify that I wanted a dollar amount, the STL got snippy with me. “Elizabeth! I don’t know the price.”
I do not go by my legal name on anything except for paperwork. I have actually done some research into legally changing my name to “Ellie” because people do not understand the concept of nicknames, nor do they respect me by calling me what I wish to call. (Though, I have a theory people might call me what I want to be called if I decided I felt like I was an “Elliot”).
But I digress.
So, I left the conversation utterly confused as to what I did to offend the STL. She was talking about a sale. I asked for more details about the sale. Silly me. I thought we were supposed to be pushy salespeople. I would normally bring up something like a big sale on avocados to anyone I see looking at them, but I won’t do it if I can’t give details.
(I’m still willing to bet that they’ll be twice the price at Target as they will at another grocery store in a neighboring town).
