I’m the idiot customer in this story. I honestly don’t even know where my head was. I’m not stupid. I have a Master’s degree. But, we all have “moments” and this was mine.

I did a summer internship at an LGBT theatre in Chicago, and every day I walked past this shop that had this really cute skirt in the window. Every day I wanted to go in and look at it, but the store looked dark, and there was an ATM machine positioned in such a way that it looked like you had to pay to open the doors.

I know. Idiot.

Anyway, finally, one day I saw someone walk into the store. Through the actual door. So I stopped, looked closely, and realized how stupid I was. It was just an ATM. Likely for the convenience of the arcade next door to this shop. You didn’t have to pay to go into the store because OBVIOUSLY.

I was laughing so hard when I went in, one of the clerks asked me what happened. So I told her. She looked at me like I had three heads. It didn’t matter. I bought the skirt.

TL;DR – I didn’t go into a store all summer long because I thought you had to pay to make the doors open.
