How To Identify An Idiot

, , , , | Right | August 22, 2018

(If a customer hasn’t signed their credit card, we’re supposed to check their ID. After having numerous people ask me why I want to see their ID, I’ve started briefly explaining this. It’s not usually an issue, but this particular customer scowls at me the whole time I am ringing her up, and especially after she hands me her card.)

Me: “May I see your ID, because your card isn’t signed?”

Customer: *digs her ID out of her wallet, looks at it for a moment without showing it to me, and then puts it back in her wallet* “So, you want me to sign my card?”

Me: “Actually, if it’s not signed, state law requires that I check your ID.”

(She rolled her eyes and let out an exasperated sigh before digging her ID back out and finally showing it to me. It wasn’t my fault she put it back in the first place.)
