| Canada | Extra Stupid

Customer: “It says my card is rejected.”

Me: “Okay.”

Customer: “What do I do?”

Me: “What does the screen say?”

Customer: “It says ‘Take Card Out. Press OK. Try again.'”

Me: “Okay, so follow the screen.”

Customer: “So, what do I do?”

Customer: “Okay.”

Me: “Press ‘OK.'”

Customer: “Okay.”

Customer: “Well, no need to explain it like I’m a five year old!”
