Random Thought for Friday, May 19th, 2017: I Can’t Even

Welcome to Friday’s Random Thought.

I guess I must be one of the stupidest people on the planet.  I just can’t understand this behavior and I am through trying, I really am.

I was in line to pay for my lunch earlier this week when the cashier asked the customer for their id. The customer flew off the handle, screaming that it was racist to ask for id.

That’s where I felt my brain implode.

If you at paying with a credit or check card and the card is unsigned, a cashier can ask to see your identification to ensure that you are the owner of said card. Any retailer can ask for identification when presented with an unsigned card.

Fortunately…there was a cop in line behind me and yes, he did calm things down. He explained that it was not racist. He told the customer and the cashier that id is not needed if the card is signed.

It came out that the card was signed but the cashier insisted on id as the card was flagged for repeated disputed charges.

The customer insisted that no id was needed because she didn’t have her id, it was at home.

That’s when the cop made things more interesting.

Apparently he had followed her into the parking lot and noted that observed her driving a car.  So this person, admitted in public, in front of a cop, that she didn’t have a driver’s license with her while operating an automobile…well let’s just say that things did not go well for this customer.

If only I had been buying popcorn and a lawn chair…that would have made it a perfect afternoon. So now I am wondering if I should carry those two things with me all the time…I carry my driver’s license, why not add some accessories, right?

HAPPY FRIDAY EVERYONE!

Random Thought for Friday, May 12th, 2017: Seppuku with a Spork

Welcome to Friday’s Random Thought.

LOL Democrats for being shocked and angry at Comey being fired.  You demanded that he be fired during the 2016 presidential campaign.  You got what you wanted, stop being whiny babies.

LOL Republicans for being shocked and angry at Comey being fired.  You demanded that he be fired during the 2016 presidential campaign.  You got what you wanted, stop being whiny babies.

LOL main stream media ‘news’ and opinion panels for being shocked and angry at Comey being fired. You demanded that he be fired during the 2016 presidential campaign.  You got what you wanted, stop being whiny babies.

The reality TV show, The United States of America, seems to have been renewed for another episode.  I just shudder at the thought of when the re-runs start.

HAPPY FRIDAY EVERYONE!

Random Thought for Friday, May 5th, 2017: Stop Using the Speaker Phone on your Mobile

Welcome to Friday’s Random Thought.

Seriously, this needs to stop.  For the love of everything sacred and pure, everyone, please stop using the speaker phone on your mobile phone.

I don’t need to hear the details of your conversation while I am shopping at Walmart.  Trust me, you exploits at the local gym are humorous to no one. I don’t care about your foot fungus that you are spreading in the showers.

Just stop it everyone. Speaker phone mode has its uses but please show that you are an intelligent life form that can exercise some iota of decorum and good judgement?

Really think about this one, okay?

If you are speaking with the fraud department about your credit card number being stolen and you recite that number aloud, on speaker phone, within earshot of 10 people, while queueing at a Walmart, it should not be a mystery why this is the 5th time your are the ‘victim’ of credit card fraud.

Willful neglect of personal information security, that’s what you are doing. That’s not the credit card company’s fault. Stop yelling at your credit card company, they are NOT the problem. You and your big mouth in public is the problem!

HAPPY FRIDAY EVERYONE!
