So I’m in the grocery store today. You know where this is going already.
There is a guy in front of me in line. Under 60 even.
He has an energy drink and a donut.
What could go wrong? I’ll tell you.
He had two credit cards, or debit cards, or paycheck cards, or food stamp cards, or who knows what the fuck kind of cards. He wanted to put the donut on one card. The energy drink on the other card.
But wait. There’s more.
Neither card works.
Let me write that again. Neither card works. Both of them are declined.
It’s cool. I’ll stand here in line all day. I had my iPod and was listening to a funny podcast. That may have been the only thing that saved this guys life.
After trying each card twice he pulls out his wallet, removes a twenty and pays for the stuff.
