I wonder if employees at the 98 and 99 cent stores get an employee discount.
If they do I bet they don't use it because they don't want to seem cheap.
It probably just makes for a good converstion piece amongst the staff when there aren't too many customers:
"Hey you guys do you dare me to use my employee discount? I'm going to do it. I swear!".
Then I bet that would be a funny story for awhile at the workplace:
"Remember that time Sally actually used her employee discount? That was hilarious.
Sally is out of her mind!"
I bet there is one person on the staff who uses the employee discount in an un-ironic fashion. Everyone probably makes fun of that person and sticks post it notes to their back that say things like,
"I'm full of non-cents".
