This Christmas We’ll Give You A Credit Crunch!

, , , | Right | December 23, 2020

It is Christmas time and our lines are packed. I have just finished ringing up this somewhat old woman and I tell her the total:

Customer: “Okay, that’s on credit.”

Me: “All right, swipe your card there, ma’am.”

Customer: “No.”

Me: “Would you like for me to enter the numbers here, ma’am?”

Customer: “No, I don’t. That’s how the government tracks you. I don’t want them to know where I shop or what I buy.”

Me: “Well, then, this purchase will be unable to be made through credit.”

Customer: “This is discrimination. How dare you not take my credit card just because it’s an inconvenience?! Get me a manager. Someone that knows how to do this job.”

I call the manager on duty and she explains the situation to him.

Manager: “I’m terribly sorry, but if we don’t have your permission to swipe or enter the card information, then this cannot be purchased through credit.”

Customer: “Why, I can’t believe service these days! Don’t want my money, fine. I’ll shop at [Rival Store]; they actually care about us!”
