This Is Why We’re In A Recession, Part 43

| Right | September 25, 2015

(Working for a large retail chain, our manager had decided that we would no longer accept checks, since they usually ended up bouncing. A customer walks up to the counter with an armful of stuff and pulls out his checkbook.)

Me: “Sorry, sir, but we don’t accept checks here.”

Customer: “But I prefer using checks.”

Me: “Sorry, we don’t accept them… How about your debit card?”

Customer: “I can’t use that. There’s no money in the account.”

Me: “Um… is this the same account for the check you were going to write?”

Customer: “Of course!”
