Lots of stores have random prices marked all over their merchandise. For example, if it was originally $36 and it has $30 handwritten on it, is it 50% off the original price or the marked down price?
Or just be happy that customers keep you busy so your boss sees that your job is important and cannot be cut.
i get confused whether it is 50% off the original or marked down price. The signs are sometimes worded wrong. Then I will ask a salesperson how much it is and I know for sure which prices to go by.
Exactly! If the item is originally $100 and marked down to $70, and there's a 50% off sign next to it - Will it be $50, or $35? I'm not an idiot, and I doubt your customers are either. Forgive us for not knowing how to decipher all the confusing sales mumbo-jumbo =/

Could be a legit question even if they can do the math based on it's tag. Most stores these days stick things on a rack but don't re-tag things, then stuff going on sale. For instance I hit a sale and the shirt I bought was 50% off the lowest price, but it was still marked $24.99 and I ended up paying like less than six bucks for it. Sometimes you have to ask someone with a scanner or someone that can scan it to see what price something actually is.That said, I'd hope everyone would be able to do the simple math. But sadly I know that's not the case.
