Fun With Hypocrites

| | Right | February 6, 2008

Me: “That’ll be $49.95, thank you sir.”

(Customer takes out his credit card and his reward benefits card from his wallet and pointedly separates them before handing them over. I take the cards.)

Customer: “No, you can’t touch the cards together like that, it ruins the magnetic strip.”

Me: “Oh it’s okay, the strips on these cards are very durable.”

(I continue on with the transaction.)

Customer: “Are you deaf? I said don’t touch them together!! You’ll ruin my cards!”

Me: “Sir, trust me–you could put a strong magnet on these cards and they wouldn’t be damaged. Touching them together is not going to affect them.”

Customer: “Well, the customer is always right, so don’t touch my cards together, okay?!”

Me: “Okay, okay, geez.”

(I make a big show of keeping the cards separate.)

Customer: “The service here is terrible.”

Me: “Whatever.”

(I hand his cards back, still making a show of keeping them separate. The customer then proceeds to put them back in his wallet, in the same flap, so they are rubbing against each other through a thin piece of material.)

Me, trying not to laugh: “You just put them together in your wallet.”

Customer: *embarrassed* “Yeah well…shut up and do your job!”

    He may be an hypocrite, but you are rude.

      He’s not the brightest bulb but he’s not exactly a hypocrite

    There’s no need to have an attitude. He’s not asking you to run around the store. you can keep two measly cards apart. Just because he’s an ass doesn’t mean you have to be one too.

    Yeah, this should also be a working, if it’s not already
