Should Have Checked Beforehand

, , , | Right | June 12, 2018

(My grandma tells me this story of something that happened when she was young. She had gone to this gas station sometime earlier on, and after filling her tank for her, the employee told her they didn’t take cheques. They took hers because it was all she had, though, and she decided the rules no longer applied to her. Later, she and her husband go to the same gas station.)

Grandpa: “They don’t take cheques here.”

Grandma: “No, you’ll see. They take mine.”

(An employee fills up their tank and she tries to hand him a cheque.)

Employee: “We don’t take those.”

Grandma: “But it’s all I have. Can’t you take it?”

Employee: “No, you’ll pay, or I’ll call the police.”

Grandma: *gestures to her husband* “Can you just take him, instead?”

(They had to leave his watch as collateral and go get cash. Grandpa was pissed.)
