A Lack Of Foreign Policy

| Right | August 24, 2016

(I work at a coffee shop in an area frequented by tourists. We are well aware that some foreign cash/debit cards are not accepted. Lady orders coffee and tries to pay with a US debit card. The card is declined twice.)

Lady: *to her friend* “I don’t understand. I just checked my account!”

Me: “Is it a foreign card? Foreign debit cards are usually not accepted.”

Lady: “No, it’s not!”

Me: “Are you sure? I’ve never seen this bank name before.”

Lady: “It’s NOT foreign. It’s American!”

Me: “You do know that America is a foreign country for everyone outside of it?”

Lady: “Well, that doesn’t make any sense!”

(Her friend then explained to her that Canada and the USA are different countries and suggested she use her credit card instead.)
