At the car dealership where I work, customers are brought up to the window to pay their down payment, then we go out to sign the paperwork with them. Today, we had a customer come up to the window, look at the card reader, which is clearly labeled “no chip”, meaning we can’t read chips in cards, so customers have to swipe their card. Then she says the following:

Customer: “Oh, so this doesn’t take chips, right? I have to swipe.”
Me: “Yep, it doesn’t have a chip reader, so just swipe the card.”
Me: (Internally thinking) “Gee, what gave it away? The label that says “no chip?”
