Signs Of Trouble

| Working | January 7, 2013

(My six year old and I are at the movie rental store. After searching and finding the movies we want, we proceed to the check out counter.)

Me: “Just these, please.”

Cashier: “No problem.”

(The cashier rings up the movies and tells me the total. However, as I move in to swipe my credit card on the kiosk…)

Cashier: “Oh no! Our credit machines are down right now due to a power failure yesterday. Cash only!”

Me: “Oh, I didn’t know. I must have missed the sign.”

Cashier: “Oh, there’s no sign. We are just telling people about it.”

Me: “Why didn’t you tell us when we came in? We’ve been here walking around for 20 minutes picking out our movies and you are just now telling us?”

Cashier: “Well, it’s not my job to track you down in the store and tell you things. You should know already!”

Me: “Fine… is there an ATM nearby that I can get money from?”

Cashier: “How should I know? That’s not my job!”

(We ended up just walking out after that. Horrible customer service!)
