It’s A NAR Kinda Day

, , , | Right | November 4, 2020

I’m in a coffee shop. Despite getting enough sleep, knowing full well how to read, and everything else, I still managed to become a typical NAR. I’m absolutely ratting myself out on this one.

I go to pay for my coffee. I look at the card reader to see if there is a note. There is! It says, “Chip does not work, please swipe!”

Cashier: “And that is [total]. Please swipe.”

I insert the chip.

Cashier: “Um…”

Me: “Oh, my God! I am that customer today. I even read that and heard you!”

I take my card out and swipe.

Me: “I am so sorry.”

Cashier: *Laughing* “Your coffee was free today by the way; you had enough points.”

Me: “I still done messed that up.”

Cashier: “To be honest, you have been one of the nicer ones about it. Most would scream at me that it was my fault.”

Me: “I figured that, which is why I know better, and I know this was all on me.”

Cashier: “Here’s your coffee, your croissant will be up, and don’t worry about it. We’re allowed our days.”

Me: “Long as we’re not jerks about it.”

Cashier: “Bingo!”

I continued to have similar interactions all day, somehow being that customer. I promptly apologized and ratted myself out to the cashier every single time. To those cashiers, I’m so sorry. I really should have paid so much more attention, but for some reason, I decided to turn that part of my brain off.
