|Female Tutor：||It’s so amazing that the cupcake workshop is so popular.|
In two weeks, 6,000 coupons were sold on the Group Purchase website.
But the coupons are just valid for 2 months.
How should we deal with the over subscription?
|Boss：||Who would turn down customers?|
Don’t worry! A lot of people would forget about the coupons they bought.
They won’t come to the class.
|Super：||A week later…|
|Young Woman：||I want to make a booking for two people next week…|
|Boss：||Sorry, the class is full.|
|Young Woman：||When will there be vacancies then?|
|Boss：||Actually classes for the coming 2 months are all full.|
|Young Woman：||What? My coupon will be expired then.|
|Smart Eye：||Tips from Smart Eye|
