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

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

(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?”
