Cause For Pregnant Pause, Part 13

| USA | Bad Behavior, Health & Body

(I am a bank teller, and currently about six months pregnant.)

Customer: “When are you due?”

Me: “First week of November.”

Customer: “Wow, you’ve got a ways to go! Just one baby in there?”

Me: “Yes, just one.”

Customer: “My coworker is due in four days, and you’re a lot bigger than her. She’s always complaining, but she’s so much smaller than you! I’m going to tell her about the poor girl at the bank!”

Me: *still smiling* “Have a nice day, ma’am!”

Getting Breaking Bad Credit

Customer: “Why did my card get blocked at [National Pharmacy Chain]?”

Me: “Well, you had a $850 purchase there one day and $1,500 the next. High dollar pharmacy purchases have a high risk of being flagged by our fraud system and causing your card to get blocked.”

Customer: “Why is that?”

Me: “One of the main reasons is because there are a lot of drugs that you can buy at a pharmacy that, when bought in enough quantity and mixed in combination with certain others or certain chemicals, can be used for illegal purposes. For example, pseudoephedrine is a key ingredient in making methamphetamines.”

Customer: “Is making meth illegal?”

Me: “Yes, sir…”
