This Is Why We’re In A Recession, Part 33

| Right | October 19, 2014

(I am finalising a sale with a customer. We have store cards for customers, which give discounts and special offers.)

Me: “Do you have a VIP card?”

Customer: “No.”

Me: “Would you like one?”

Customer: “No, thanks.” *swipes credit card*

Me: “Sorry, but your card has been declined. Do you have another way of paying?”

Customer: “No. I’ll come back.” *stops for moment* “I think I will sign up for the store card.”

(I pass the form to her, fill in her details on the computer, and hand her the store discount card. She hands it straight back to me.)

Customer: “Use this to pay for my things.”

Me: “What? No, this isn’t a bank card. It’s a discount card.”

Customer: “I do not understand. You give me card. I pay for things with card.”

Me: “This is a store card for customers to get discounts and rewards with.”

Customer: “No.”

Me: “No, you can’t make payments with this card. Go to your bank about your credit card.”
