The Financial Crisis Personified

| | Right | July 9, 2009

(A lady walks up to my register with a medium coffee.)

Me: “That’ll be $1.17 please.”

Customer: “All right, I’ve just got a few cards here to put that on.”

Me: “…”

Customer: “Take 75 cents off this one.” *hands over card*

Me: “OK…42 cents is the remaining balance.”

Customer: “Next, take 40 cents off this one.” *hands over next card* “…and take the remaining 2 cents off this card.”

Me: “Ma’am, I’ve got two extra pennies for you; I’m not charging two cents…”

Customer: “Oh, well thank you! You know how it goes sometimes with credit cards, I’m sure…”

Me: “No, no I really do not.”

Customer: “Oh, well you really should manage your finances better!” *walks out*
