Game Geeks-What’s 10% of 30.00?

I survived Christmas. That’s a whole other blog post, for another time. But, have I survived the post-holiday Game Geeking? Hrm…let today’s latest hilarity be the judge…

An older gentleman came in, purchasing 6 Playstation 2 games as well as our discount card. The discount card takes 10% off of all preowned games and accessories. The gentleman’s bill comes to 33.27 before the discount of the card is applied. After the card is purchased, the bill came to 45.00. There was a discount of 3.10 total on his bill, reflecting the 10%. Here’s where the insanity shows up.

HE BEGAN ARGUING WITH ME OVER THE MATH!

First he argued that 10% of 45 was not 3.00.

No, it’s not. But 15.00 of that 45 was the membership, so it doesn’t count for the discount…

So, I went through each game with him, went through each thing with him…and finally, the manager comes over and chimes in asking what the problem is, and tells the guy the same thing I told him about the 10%.

Then, gentleman asks manager to get out a calculator. No, not kidding. I was heading there, but the manager beat me to it. Then, the gentleman began to argue the math. Seriously… 30x .1 vs 30 x .10

SAME THING…

eventually, after a few more minutes of complaning, arguing and all of that, the guy relented and paid us…but not before the parting shot of “are you sure that’s 10%??”

Yes, we’re sure.

and that was the question of the day to all of the employees…what’s 10% of 30?
