Gearing up for Stupid Customer Day

Well, it's almost dollar flip flop day, and we all know what that means!

Stupid Customer Day!

It's already starting! The ad started airing last night, and that meant the stupid phone calls started today.

All Old Navy stores are opening at 7 am on Saturday, which is obviously the point of the ad. So people were calling all day, and here's how the conversations went.

Me: Thank you for calling Old Navy Jefferson Mall! This is Kristin, how may I help you?
Customer: Um, are y'all having a flip flop sale?
Me: Yes, our flip flops will be $1 on Saturday.
Customer: Okay, and what time are y'all opening?
Me: 7 am.

Like, do you not believe the ad? It's telling the truth. We're not going to be the only Old Navy to not open at 7.

The other stupid type of phone call I got today went like this:

Me: Thank you for calling Old Navy Jefferson Mall! This is Kristin, how may I help you?
Customer: Are your flip flops a dollar today?
Me: No, that's only Saturday.
Customer: Oh, really? I saw a commercial today.
Me: Yes, really. By the way, we open at 7.

Okay seriously! Pay attention! The ad says Saturday! The sale is Saturday! It's a one-day wonder! That's how it works!

Why would we have such a special sale on a Thursday? That doesn't make any sense! Also, I didn't get there until 1 pm today, so if the sale had been today those calls would have been WAY too late.

Yay customers. Can't wait for Saturday!

    Notice the "Call your local store to make sure they're participating!"
