Retail stores that give professionals and students discounts
Funny story about this. One of my co-workers told me about this at "Spoons and Spice". I think it's just local to me.
I'm looking at a particular knife and ask about the discount. The clerk tells me "Yes, we do have a discount we just need to see your ID to confirm if you are really a chef."
I ask her "How does showing you my ID prove if I'm a chef or not? You mean like if I'm a student at a culinary school?"
She says "Yes, if you're a student."
I say "How does being a culinary student make you a chef?"
She gives me a blank look. :-/
I tell her "I never went to culinary school and I just work at a country club."
She says "Ok, but your employer should give you a card that says you're a chef."
I tell her "I've never heard of any chef or cook that carries around a card with them that says they're a chef or cook."
She says... Get this... "All my chef friends carry around cards that says they're a chef!"
I just roll my eyes and leave.
So I share this story on my facebook and my friend makes me this card so I can go back and get my discount...
Sur la table offers a discount. Most local knife shops that I've shopped at offer a discount.
Most places that I've ever had to prove anything to get a discount ask for a paystub from your restaurant. They do this once, put you in the computer and you are good to go.
