    Always Handle Grown Ups With Kid Gloves, Part 2

    | Canada | Extra Stupid

    (I work as a cashier at a hardware store. A customer has had a problem-less transaction and is beginning to ring through purchase. She pauses after a few moments.)

    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?”

    Me: “Take your card out.”

    Customer: “Okay.”

    Me: “Press ‘OK.’”

    Customer: “Okay.”

    Me: “…and try again.”

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