    Digging Your Way Out Of A Hole, Part 3

    | Los Angeles, CA, USA |

    (Note: I’m the manager at a video rental store, and the owner happens to be there with me.)

    Customer: “I’d like to open an account.”

    Me: “Okay, to open a membership we need a California issued I.D and a major credit card.”

    Customer: “Well, I don’t have one.”

    Me: “Which one?”

    Customer: “The credit card.”

    Me: “Then I’m afraid we can’t open the account.”

    Customer: “Oh, I talked to the manager last week. He said it was alright if i didn’t have a credit card.”

    Me: “Oh really? I don’t recall telling anybody that last week.”

    Customer: *nervously* “… then it was the owner who told me that.”

    Me: “I don’t think he would say that.”

    Customer: “Yeah he did. He said it was fine. Just make me the d*** membership! The owner said it was fine.”

    Me: “Okay…” *I turn to the owner*

    Me, to the owner: “Hey, did you tell anyone last week that they could make a new account without a credit card?”

    Owner: “No, I never said that ever.”

    Customer: *walks away with his head down*
