    This Is Why We’re In A Recession, Part 8

    | Broomfield, CO, USA | At The Checkout, Money

    (A customer is paying her credit card bill.)

    Me: “Would you like to pay with cash, check, or debit card?”

    Customer: “I can pay with a debit card?”

    Me: “You sure can.”

    (The customer slides her card.)

    Customer: “I don’t remember my pin. I’ll just try one.”

    (The customer’s card is declined.)

    Me: “Do you want to try again?”

    Customer: “No, my mom will use her card.”

    (The customer’s mother tries, but she doesn’t remember her PIN either.)

    Me: “You can pay with cash or a check.”

    (The customer pulls a folded check from her pocket and hands it to me. I open it to see that it’s blank.)

    Me: “Um…”

    Customer: “Oh, am I supposed to fill that out?”

    Me: “Hello. Would you like a protection plan with this?”

    (Customer ignores me.)

    Me: “Do you have a rewards card with us, ma’am?”

    (Customer continues to ignore me.)

    Me: “Okay, here’s your receipt. Have a nice day!”

    (Customer stops talking on her phone and looks at me.)

    Customer: “What about my rewards card?”

    Me: “Well, I asked you if you had one, but you were too busy talking.”

    Customer: “So you’re saying it’s my fault?”

    Must Be Really Hungry

    , | Annapolis, MD, USA | Bizarre, Food & Drink

    Customer: “Ok, thank you. What’s the range on this pager?”

    Me: “Just on this side of the courtyard.”

    Customer: “Alright, and if I lick it, will it electrocute me?”

    Me: *pause* “Please…just…don’t.”

    Too Lazy To Lather

    | Toronto, Canada | Bizarre

    Customer: “I need help finding a soap with vanilla in it.”

    (I help her and show her a few products. She picks up a bar of soap.)

    Customer: “How do you use this one?”

    Me: “Oh, it’s just like a normal bar of soap.”

    Customer: “What?”

    Me: “You know, like a normal soap bar? Um, like Dove or Irish Spring?”

    Customer: *blank stare*

    Me: “You take it into the shower with you, wet it, rub it all over, and rinse it off.”

    Customer: “Oh. That sounds like too much work.” *puts soap down and walks away*
