This is now resolved but just out of interest...

Shop has a large and high value item on a marked down price due to it being ex display.

Customer 1 goes over to the till to ask about it. Dithers for a bit. Doesn't place the order. Goes back over to have a look to help her decide whether to go for it or not.

In the meantime customer 2 comes to a different till and asks to purchase the item. Till operator 2 goes to get the bar code from the item.

Customer 1 then goes to the first till and says yes Ive decided I will go for it please. Till operator 1 also then walks over to get the bar code and meets Till operator 2 coming back with it.

Who gets the item customer 1 because she asked about it first or customer 2 because she actually confirmed that she wanted to purchase first?

Place your bets.

Any votes for customer 1?

Customer 2 - if you look at it from the perspective of contract law, customer 2 made the offer to buy first. So redhat - my guess is you are Customer 2.

2. Customer 1 was faffing so too bad.

2. She stated her intention to purchase first. It's the shops business that they had to go and get the barcode details. Had they been to hand at the till the sale who have gone through there and then.

I'm guessing you are 2 but 1 got it.
Tbh if I was 2, I'd let 1 have it.

There was a tense stand off.

It went to CCTV to decide it shock
