    This Is Why We’re In A Recession, Part 4

    | Minneapolis, MN, USA | Food & Drink, Money

    (Three women in their early twenties come in. I ring up the first two, but the third woman’s credit card is denied.)

    Me: “I’m sorry, but your card had been denied.”

    Customer: “No, that cant be! There’s no way! Try it again!”

    (I swipe the card again, and it once more is denied.)

    Me: “It still came up as declined. Do you have another card I could try?”

    Customer: “No! This is stupid!”

    (One of her friends lend her cash to pay for her meal. As they fill their drinks at the pop machine I overhear her talking.)

    Customer: “That is so weird! My card was denied last week. Shouldn’t it be un-denied by now?”
