Common Sense Has Checked Out

| MI, USA | At The Checkout, Extra Stupid, Money

(I finish a customer’s order, and they ask for a pen so they can write a check.)

Me: “Oh, sure. But you don’t need to fill it out.”

Customer: “Okay.”

(The customer continues to write the check.)

Me: “You can just fill out the information you need, but you don’t need to fill out the check. You can leave it blank if you’d like to.”

Customer: “What’s the date today?”

Me: “It’s the 30th, but you don’t need to write it down, unless you need to.”

(The customer completely fills out the check. I run the check, and when the transaction’s complete, I give the customer her receipt and check back.)

Me: “There you are. Have a great night!”

Customer: *looking at the check in her hand* “Oh, you didn’t need this?”

Me: “Nope, it’s run electronically.”

Customer: “Why didn’t you say anything!?”
