A Wally With A Wallet

| MD, USA | At The Checkout, Criminal & Illegal, Liars & Scammers, Top

(Our area has recently been hit with a bunch of fraudulent credit cards. We’ve been advised to double check IDs and cards. My coworker is checking out a customer and asks to see his ID.)

Customer: “What do you need to see my ID for?”

Coworker: “We’ve been advised to check all IDs. Besides the back of your card says to check ID anyway, so…”

Customer: “Well, I’m telling you I am not showing you my identity! This is ridiculous! Where’s your manager?”

Me: “That would be me, sir. You’ll either have to show identification, or use another form of payment.”

Customer: “Fine! Here!”

(He tossed his entire wallet at me. I glanced at the ID, which is out of state. The man in the picture was very obviously not the man in front of me. Furthermore, the card was in a woman’s name. I slid the ID to the side and noticed that another ID was underneath; this ID was to another person! My coworker noticed this, too. He ducked around the bend, and I heard him calling the police. I pretended to run the card through and have ‘technical problems’, stalling him long enough for the cops to get to our store. When they searched him, they found another wallet on him with various cards. He’d been using stolen cards all day without anyone checking them!)

Cereally Stupid, Part 2

| USA | Extra Stupid

(I am working in the housewares section. A customer approaches; she is holding a clear plastic container.)

Customer: “Do you have any of these in a larger size?”

Me: “Yes, there are some right here.”

(I point to the container. It has a picture of cereal on the front, but it’s obviously empty.)

Customer: “Well, I’m not going to buy it if it comes with cereal in it! That’s just stupid!” *angrily walks away*

(I work at the till. We always ask a few questions to every customer.)

Me: “Did you get everything you were looking for okay today?”

Customer: *nodding* “Thank you!”

Me: “Are you interested in any gift cards today?”

(The customer shakes her head side-to-side this time, with inflections to say ‘no’.)

Customer: “Thank you.”

Me: “That’ll be [price], please.”

(The customer hands me the money.)

Customer: “Thank you!”

Me: “And here’s your change and receipt.”

Customer: “Thank you.”

Me: “See you later.”

Customer: “Thank you!”
