ME: "Can I help you sir?"
HIM: "Uh, maybe. I got this phone card and it won't activate."
ME: "Ok. When did you buy it?"
HIM: "Last week."
ME: "OK. Do you have your receipt?"
HIM: "No. I threw it out." Because, you know, it is not like you'll ever need it again.
ME: "OK. Was there an activation code on the receipt?"
HIM: "Uh, I don't think so."
ME: "Are you sure you called and activated it right? Sometimes they give you one code from the card and you have to call and use that code to add minutes."
HIM: "Naw man, my phone ain't like that." For the life of me, I can't understand why so many idiots have such a difficult time with prepaid phone cards.
ME: "OK. You don't have your receipt. We can't take it back without a receipt. How did you pay for it? If you paid with a credit card we might be able to look it up."
HIM: "I might have paid with my debit card."
ME: "OK. Did you buy it at this Wal-Mart?"
ME: "OK. Which store did you buy it at?" Because we can't look up other store's receipts.
With Kali as my witness ... better filters for the gene pool ... I'm taking up a collection.
