    This Is Why We’re In A Recession, Part 10

    | USA |

    (I am taking a delivery order.)

    Me: “And how will you be paying tonight? Cash or credit?”

    Caller: “Credit.”

    Me: “What type of card is it?”

    (The caller states the name of her bank.)

    Me: “No, ma’am. I meant is it a Visa, MasterCard?”

    Caller: “Oh, Visa.”

    Me: “The number?”

    Caller: “What number do you want?”

    Me: “The big one on the front.”

    Caller: “Oh, really. All of it?”

    (She provides twelve numbers.)

    Me: “I need four more numbers.”

    Caller: “Oh, sorry. I didn’t see them there. 1234.”

    Me: “Okay. And the expiration date?”

    Caller: “Where do you find that?”

    Me: “The bottom right corner.”

    (A few seconds of silence pass.)

    Caller, talking to someone else: “Find the expiration date for me.”

    (She finally finds it and gives it to me. I arrive with her order, and hand her the credit card receipt. She turns to her friend, and hands it to her.)

    Caller, to her friend: “Sign this for me. I don’t know how.”
