(I am working at my local greeting card store. We sell a lot of holiday merchandise. A customer comes in, clearly in a rush, grabbing a tiny display Christmas tree and putting it on the counter. He pays with a debit card and is almost out the door when the receipt finishes printing.)

Me: “Sir, you need to sign for this.”

Customer: *turns around* “What?”

Me: “Sorry, sir, but you need to sign this receipt.”

Customer: “But I paid with a debit card.”

Me: “I’m sorry, but it’s store policy that if you pay with anything other than cash, we have to have a signature.”

(At this point he comes back to the counter and scribbles his name.)

Customer: “This is honestly ridiculous. I shouldn’t have to sign for a debit card. You guys need to get with the 21st century.”

(And he all but throws his receipt at me before storming out. I share a look with my coworker who just shrugs.)

Coworker: “I thought you handled that well.”
