I have a part-time job as a salesperson. And believe me, it really makes you appreciate school..
I’m at the cash register checking out a customer. She hands me her bank card.
Me: “Debit?” (We have to ask this because some people don’t know the pin for it.)
Me: “Can I see your ID, please?”
Customer: *annoyed* “Uh, this is stupid.”
Me: “What is?”
Customer: “That I have to get my ID. It’s debit too.”
Me: “Did you not tell me credit? I didn’t know that meant debit, I will try to read your mind next time.
Customer: “Well it’s stupid to ask for ID.”
Me: “Like I said, I will try to read your mind next time. And if you happen to lose your card today and someone else finds it and tries to use it here, I will be happy not to check for ID. Thank you. Bye.
*Customer rolls eyes and walks out*
