making me mad (not like it’s hard)

December 1, 2007

we went to to mall to do a little christmas shopping, we were in a store, we picked out all of the crap we wanted, we went to the register, attempted to pay . . . with a credit card.

now, liz and i have written “please see id” in the signature line, because that way it’s a bit less likely that some jerk could steal and try to use our credit cards. my signature is also on my driver’s license, as well as my photo. see, no stealing. the only problem is that most of the time cashiers will not check the signature line on the card or ask for an id. that stinks, i can’t afford to have a perp steal my credit card and use it.

back to the mall: the cashier would not accept the credit card because it said “please see id.” we had no other way to pay, no checks, no cash. she was really starting to hassle us with some crap about not being allowed to ask for someone’s id.

so, i said “well, i really don’t need to buy anything today.” all of a sudden it wasn’t a problem. payed with the credit card sans signature without an id. i know where i will shop if i ever decide to steal a credit card.

if you go to “yankee candle” bring a check . . . i hope that they ask for your driver’s license then.
