We Take Cash, Credit, And Intense Stares

, , , , , | Working | November 6, 2018

(I’m at a pizza shop for lunch. I order my food, and everything is fine until it comes time to pay.)

Counter Guy: “$6.85.”

Me: “Do you take credit cards?”

Counter Guy: *glaring at me* “$6.85.”

Me: *thinking maybe he didn’t hear me* “Do you take credit cards?”

Counter Guy: *continues to glare at me, saying nothing*

(I then handed him my credit card, and he completed the transaction without a problem, albeit silently, not even responding when I said thank you. I fully understand that some merchants prefer not to accept credit cards for smaller purchases — that’s my only guess as to why he may have been upset — but usually they’ll politely inform the customer instead of just giving dirty looks. If the guy had just told me he preferred payment in cash, I would’ve gladly done so.)
