It was my climb-it change.
Cost me an arm and a leg.
She said "transaction denied, insufficient buns."
The waitress went up to the customer and said, "Hey, I'm sorry about this but for some reason your card didn't read, I'm going to need your card again."
I overheard this from behind the bar and said, "Amber, it's the middle of the summer, why in the world would this guy have his cardigan."
That was the first and only time I ever got a tip from a guy I never served or talked to.
Hopefully it will turn out OK.
The transaction didn't go through. There was a chip error.
Me: "Chip error?
That's funny, I'm not even buying any chips."
This produced a groan from the cashier and at least two people in line behind me.
Fiancé: Oh, I didn't realise she was ordering packages.
Me: She must've gone to the bank to get herself a debit card.
Fiancé: Nah, she just went to the neighbours tree.
Fiancé: The local branch.
It's also how I use my debit card
He told the employee, "I'll be paying with check"
Employee: "sir, we don't accept check"
Dad: "no, I'm paying in check"
Employee: "sir, we don't accept..."
Dad: "check... Card. My debit card says check card on it"
No one laughed.
People often come up to me with their debit card and ask: "is there any money on my card?" To which I respond, "no.", without pulling up their accounts.
When they look at me with a confused face I give them their card back with a penny set on top of it.
"There! Now there is money on your card!"
Decided to join my parents for dinner when my mother tells me she found my debit card in the washing machine. My dad says "you better watch out, you might get a call from the bank for money laundering"
He replied. "Can she speak debit card too?"
