Me: “Okay, ma’am, just slide your card and either select credit or enter your PIN.”

Customer: “It says credit. This is a debit.”

Me: “I know, ma’am. Just enter your PIN for debit.”

Customer: “But it says credit!”

Me: “I know, just put in your PIN like on any debit machine.”

Customer: “But the button on the screen says credit!”

Me: “Okay, now enter your PIN.”

Caller: “Hey…I need y’all to come out to [motel] and take me to the airport.”

Me: “I’m sorry, I don’t think I’ll be able to do that.”

Caller: “Oh, and bring forty-five dollars.”

Me: “I’m sorry sir, I cannot come pick you up.”

Caller: “What? I just came to your crummy town for a weekend and now I gotta get back home. Why the hell aren’t you helping me? I just need a ride and forty-five dollars!”

Me: “Sir, I’m afraid I can’t.”

Caller: “Ain’t y’all a church? Why don’t you get off your lazy a** and come get me?”

Me: “Sir, I am not accustomed to meeting strange men at motels.”

Caller: “Well, it’s obvious YOU ain’t a Christian!”
