License To Be Difficult

, , , | Right | September 15, 2020

A woman comes up to the customer service counter to pick up an order that was shipped to the store. Where I work, we are required to fill out a form with the customer’s name and address as it appears on their driver’s license so that we can track them down in case the order is picked up by the wrong person.

Customer: “I need to sign for my order.”

I find her form in the book.

Me: “Okay. I’ll just need to see your driver’s license, and then you can sign and be on your way.”

Customer: *Groans* “I left it out in the car. Do you really need it? You guys know me; I come in here all the time.”

I don’t recognize this woman. We get lots of customers who come in all the time.

Me: “I’m sorry, but it’s our store’s policy. I have to copy your name and address on your license before you can sign for your order.”

The customer goes out to her car and comes back with her license.

Customer: “Okay, here it is.”

The customer flashes her license so I can barely get a glimpse of it.

Me: “Ma’am, I need to copy your name and address on this form. Please let me see your license.”

Customer: “I’m not letting you look at it anymore.”

Me: “I’m sorry, but I need to see your license, please.”

Customer: “Nope.”

I get a manager. After he argues with the customer for a minute, he advises me to just let her give me her name and address.

Customer: “My driver’s license number is [number].”

Me: “I don’t need your driver’s license number. Just your name and address.”

Customer: “My name is [Customer] and my driver’s license number is [number].”

Me: *Sigh* “All right, now what’s your address?”

The customer gives me her address and signs for her order.

Manager: “If she was gonna give you all the information off her driver’s license, why wouldn’t she just show it to you?”

Me: “I don’t know.”
