    Superman Goes Shopping

    | Elmira, NY, USA |

    (In my store, it’s store policy to check credit cards for signatures; if they’re not signed, we must see ID.)

    Me: “May I see your card, please?”

    Customer: “Why?”

    Me: “Your card is not signed sir, and I have to check IDs if there’s no signature.”

    Customer: “I know it’s not signed, and it’s not going to be signed.”

    Me: “That’s fine, sir – I just have to check your ID then.”

    Customer: “Here.” *shows ID*

    Me: “Okay, thank you – sign the machine please.”

    Customer: “How do you know that’s me in the ID? He has glasses on and I don’t.”

    Me: “Sir, it looks like you.”

    Customer: “But I don’t have glasses on.”

    Me: “Okay then – I’m sorry, but this isn’t valid proof of ID. I can’t take it, which means you can’t use this card.”

    Customer: “Oh, well – it’s me, I was just trying to help you out.”

    Me: “I’m sorry sir, but you have convinced me otherwise. I cannot take it.”

    Customer: “What? It’s me!”

    Me: “I know…it’s you. I was just trying to help you out.”
