PIN-Headed, Part 8

, , , | Right | August 1, 2019

(I work at a popular Canadian coffee shop, and I’m manning the drive-thru window. A man pulls up and orders his drink. He then pulls up to my window.)

Customer: *hands me his credit card*

Me: *puts the chip into the handheld POS machine and hands it to him to enter his PIN*

Customer: “Oh, you do that. My PIN is [PIN].’” *trying to hand the machine back*

Me: *not taking the machine* “I’m sorry, sir, but I am not allowed to do that. Plus, there are cameras and I am not willing to risk my job.”

(The customer seemed okay with that and put in his PIN. He then handed back the machine, and immediately drove away, leaving behind his credit card and the knowledge of his PIN. He came back later for it. It is a good thing that I am an honest person; who knows what a dishonest one would have done with that opportunity!)
