SCs and cheques do not mix!
SC writing a cheque asks the date, so I tell her July 20.
SC: Are you sure it's July? I thought this was August.
Me: Yes, ma'am it's July.
We go around a couple of times and she won't believe me, so I point to the date on our display screen and tell her July is the 7th month.
SC: Are you sure?
I even show her my watch, which has the month on it, then she finally believes me.
SC: *laughs* What was I thinking?
Does she really
want me to answer that???
Another SC writing a cheque. I ask for her preferred customer card, cuz we don't accept cheques without them, no exceptions.
SC: I don't have that card, but I always write cheques here.
I tell her we can't accept the cheque, so she pulls out a wad of cash. Her bill was $57 and change, so she grabs a $50 and a $10, then says, no that's wrong, grabs 2 $20s and a $10, thinks about it, then hands me the $50 and 2 $20s!!! It was very entertaining to watch her struggle with the math!
I tell her that the $50 and $10 will cover it.
When she goes to put the rest away, what's sitting right in the front of her wallet? Her preferred customer card! She picks it up and asks if she should throw it away cuz 'it's not good for anything anymore'. I tell her that that
is the card she needs if she wants to write a cheque.
What a lovely evening. . . *sigh*
